I was lamenting to a fellow mom of multiples that I didn’t know how I’d manage haircuts with five kids. She gave me some awesome advice. See if you can find a hairdresser who makes house calls. This was such a game changer for me. Some hairdressers can’t make house calls because of their contract with their salon. But others can. If you have multiples, you already make the trip to your house worthwhile because they are getting more than one customer with just one trip. It doesn’t hurt to ask! If your current hairdresser doesn’t make house calls, ask if they have any friends or former colleagues that might. You don’t have to end your relationship with your hairdresser – the house-call hairdresser might just be for your kids alone.
Taking it a step further, while you are looking for a pediatrician, you could ask around to see if any pediatricians in your area make house calls. You never know, you may be able to have a doctor’s appointment in the comfort of your own home.
Have you ever had a hair stylist or doctor come to you? How did you find them, and how did the visit go? I’d love to hear from you.
