History of Mundan Ceremony Chudakarana 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.
Next, 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 or Mundan. Also, 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. Finally, the rite is performed as a special ceremony in most homes or salons, for young girls and boys.

Mundan Ceremony Chudakarana Ceremony Reviews for Just 4 Kids Salon
o Aseem S.
o Upper Chicago, IL
I had an awesome experience getting my daughters mundan done at Just 4 Kids Salon. This place was an hours drive from home and I was skeptical if I had taken the right decision. My experience at Just 4 Kids Salon was so wonderful and it was totally worth driving an hour. They kept my daughter busy throughout the haircut, and distracted her with bubbles and toys if when she got irritated. Next, they used a trimmer and even finished my daughters’ head with straight razor as I asked! This is a Five Star Salon and would highly recommend to Indian parents who want to do mundan ceremony.

This is the only place we found in NJ for my son’s first complete hair cut (aka mundan).
– My son loves the car and they had perfect setup with car seat. He enjoyed his first cut and he did not even cry once! I can not believe that! Also, the lady who cuts his hair was very nice, singing and he enjoyed every moment there!
– Finally – I am far away from this place! However I would not hesitate to take my son again there just to have some fun along with his hair cut.

Shall I start from the beginning? I loved how flexible they were about appointment timing! Especially considering we had to reschedule last minute because the baby decided to nap.
Once we finally made it, we were very warmly welcomed and taken care of immediately.
The salon was so fun and colorful, my son thoroughly enjoyed the visuals which helped keep him distracted during his haircut, as well. The lady cutting his hair was so calm and knew just how to work around babies who are fussing around. And she gave him a great cut too!
Would definitely recommend to all.
Coming back for all future cuts!
Thanks for making our baby’s first haircut experience an amazing one!
