Baby Haircut Places in Southeast Michigan

Try out one of these baby haircut places in Ann Arbor, Canton, Royal Oak and more for your little one's first haircut.

As parents, we put off getting our child’s haircut for as long as we can, for a number of reasons: we don’t want them to get upset, we don’t want to get upset and above all, we don’t want anyone to mess up our precious baby’s hair.

But, if you cannot wait any longer for that trim, check out this list of baby haircut places below to help make that first haircut milestone a little bit easier on you and your child.
