My First Haircut at the Magic Kingdom

Not mine! This was my grandson’s first haircut and my daughter was nice enough to wait for me to come down to take him to the Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom. Though you may not be aware of where it is located.

Harmony Barber Shop Location
The Car Barn and Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida. Nikon D750/24-120VR, 1/200s, f/7.1, ISO 100, EV +0.3, 24mm Focal Length, Skylum Intensify CK.

As you walk into the Magic Kingdom, the Harmony Barber Shop is located to the left, next to the Car Barn and across from the Fire Station. Inside there are three barber chairs. It is a small area and reservations are highly recommended, though we walked in early to find there had been a cancellation.

First Haircut
Boy getting his First Haircut inside the Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida. All photos taken with a Nikon D750 camera with Nikon 24-120VR lens using a Nikon SB-700 Speedlight bounced off the ceiling.

Being a small room, I used a zoom lens which went from a wide angle to short telephoto, a Nikon 24-120mm f/4G VR.  To get good color and exposure, I brought along a Nikon SB-700 Speedlight (aka flash) which I used to bounce off the ceiling. Bouncing it gave a really nice even light source and kept from getting harsh reflections off the mirror in behind the barber as she worked.

To get the commemorative Mickey Ears and a certificate, you pay $25 for the My First Haircut package. For just a haircut, it costs $18 for children under 9 years of age and $19 for Adults as of this writing. Both boys and girls (and, yes, men and women) can get their haircut there.
