Did your mum ever cut your hair when you were young?

I was looking through some old photos yesterday and had to laugh at some of the terrible haircuts my mother gave me when I was small. I don't remember feeling upset so I suppose I was too young to care what I looked like. Back in the 50s and 60s I think it was often mum who took the scissors to their kid's hair because it was cheaper and there probably weren't so many hairdressers around as there are today. Did your mum or dad carry out a home haircut on you when you were little?

The Beatles hair was considered to be outrageous at the time but became very fashionable. It was quite gimmicky because although they wore smart suits their hair was considered to be long! My dad thought it was terrible lol.

I think my mom may have done it a couple of times, but I mostly remember going to shops. Most of the time it was a beauty college though. It was always cheaper. I can't say I got any better a cut going to a shop where I was essentially a guinea pig.
