Yesterday Little and I got new ‘dos.
This was Little’s very first haircut. She was born with a headful of hair and never lost any of it. Because of that we had two issues: first, her hair was uneven – her “original” hair is very straight and her new hair has some curl; second, the longest parts of her hair came almost to her waist. In order to even it up and get rid of her scraggly look, we got it cut in a blunt cut that falls just above her shoulders. It is absolutely adorable, but she does look more like a little girl now.
She was a very good girl while her hair was being cut. Our hairstylist is also a good friend, so Little is comfortable with L and I think that made a huge difference in her willingness to cooperate. She sat in the chair like a big girl and was remarkably still; she even said “thank you” when L was finished cutting. I was very proud of her, and I just love her new ‘do.
As for me, I went a little shorter in the back than the cut I’ve been sporting since January (which was pretty short already); the front is the same length it has been, but it is styled a bit differently. I also got some copper highlights that I’m loving (settled on copper because Matt was very against the red-red that I wanted to do). Just something fun and a little sassy for the summer.
It was fun to see Little’s first haircut, and I enjoyed getting a little pampering. We had a nice “girls night” with L.
I would love to share pictures, but I’m having trouble with iPhoto; maybe I can get some posted after my tech guy is home to help.
