Hi My 5 year old son becomes extremely cranky while cutting hairs at salon.. His commentry starts. Is it normal at this age also ? Secondly when he is awake I cant cut his nails.. I have to cut only when he is sleep.

I can understand your concern. Instead of making it big thing or calling again and again just inform your child that he is going to have a hair cut or you will cut his nails. And if your child is getting cranky or talks a lot its his way of getting rid of fear which these process causes in him but because of this do not stop these activities instead get them done on regular basis. With passing time he will understand that as we need to take bath or brush our teeth regularly to keep ourselves clean same ways he will have to have haircuts and nail trimming on regular basis. Just keep yourself calm, don't shout at him as it will aggravate his crankiness instead keep some calming things handy to distract him Please refer to this: https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/tackling-an-aggressive-child-with-a-calm-box/6085 Take Care
