History of Chudakarana Ceremony Mundan Ceremony (From Wikipedia):
The Chudakarana (Sanskrit: चूड़ाकरण, lit, arrangement of the hair tuft) or the Mundan (Sanskrit: मुण्डन, lit. tonsure), is the eighth of the sixteen Hindu saṃskāras (sacraments), in which a child receives their first haircut.
According to the Grhya Sutras, this samskara should take place at the end of first year or before the expiry of the third year, but the later authorities extend the age to the seventh year. The child’s hair is shorn, frequently leaving only the śikhā or cūḍā, a tuft at the crown of the head.
Originally, the arrangement of the śikhā was the most significant feature of the Chudakarana and the number of tufts was determined by the number of the pravaras belonging to the gotra of the child. Later, in northern India, keeping only one tuft became universal. But in the Deccan and southern India, earlier traditions remained alive to some extent.
In tradition, the hair from birth is associated with undesirable traits from past lives. Thus at the time of the mundan, the child is freshly shaven to signify freedom from the past and moving into the future. The rite is performed as a special ceremony in most homes or salons, for young girls and boys.

Went here for my son’s first haircut and was very pleased. Samantha was very patient with my son and took her time. Since he was only one year old he didn’t always sit still but she still did a great job! His hair was even and stylish when he was done. Look forward to going back when he needs his next haircut. Also, there is a huge parking lot which is definitely an added bonus for Hoboken!

Loved our experience today at Just 4 Kids! My 19 month-old son had his FIRST haircut and it couldn’t have gone any better. He got to sit in a yellow hummer chair that had a horn and buttons for him to play with, in addition to a gas pedal that made the wheels turn. He also got to watch his own personal TV, which was programmed with tons of kids’ shows to keep him still. The staff listened to everything we asked for, keeping his hair still on the longer side but manageable 🙂 And they even used all natural hair products to give him an adorable Mohawk just for fun.
On the way out they gave us a certificate for his first haircut, with a lock of his baby hair 🙂 Super cute and definitely a parent-pleaser for the baby-book! They also gave him an organic lollipop (they ask first if it is okay!), and he got to choose a toy from the toy box. He actually started crying when we had to go, so they let him choose a second toy, which was super sweet, and then they gave him a sticker. Happy kid, and super happy parents! We will 100% be back and recommending Just 4 Kids to all of our friends!

We just took my daughter here for her first haircut (there’s a special package), and we had a wonderful experience! The salon is a great space, with cars for the kids to sit in that actually have working horns, pedals, buttons, etc. They put on a Baby Einstein video, and my daughter was completely blissed out. The haircut was perfect, exactly what I wanted, and then they pampered her with bubbles, a toy of her choice, and an organic lollipop. And I got a “certificate” with a lock of her hair for her baby book.
We had such a great time, and my daughter loved it – I know I’ll have no trouble convincing her to get another haircut, as long as it’s at Just 4 Kids. I’m so glad they’ve opened up in Hoboken – We needed a place exactly like this!

What a great place! We have been waiting for a kids salon to open up in Hoboken. The space is adorable and the staff is great! Had my son’s first haircut here and they were patient and great with him. They gave him lollipops and toys, a certificate with his first lock of hair attached, and extra baggies of hair for his grandparents. He had such a great time and we will def be back! Highly recommended!
