The last time I took my sons to have their haircut, the five-year-old had such a meltdown that the barber gave him a giant bar of chocolate to shut him up.
I don't know what he was complaining about. It could have been worse – much worse. Just take a look at these pictures.
These poor lads are less than impressed with the handiwork of their hairdresser who has given them matching Mohican haircuts – apparently for 'good luck'. Hmm!
The youngsters, from Huaibei City, East China, were having the traditional trim on 'Er Yue Er' the second day of the second lunar month, which is known as 'a time for the dragon to raise its head'.
Er Yue Er is one of the busiest days of the year for hairdressers in China as it is widely believed that those who have their haircut on this day will have a vigorous start to the new year.
Across China, fairs and celebrations have been held to mark the last few days of the first Chinese Lunar calendar month.
