Before school started I decided to start a tradition of back to school cuts for the girls at a real salon. GG wanted to keep her hair "long and beautiful" but she agreed to submit to a trim of six inches. Her hair is so long that even with that trim it is still SO LONG :)
She loved getting the shampoo.
Even though she was anxious she sat very still for the cut. I can still remember her first bob that took hours because she was moving so much. She's definitely matured since then.
Who doesn't love a good blow out? Obviously her hair loves it. Can you say strands of golden silk!
Yes this is my gorgeous daughter!
She loved having a little curl in her hair. She told me recently that it makes her sad that her hair is never curly. Oddly enough it makes me a little sad as well. I always resented my curly hair and wanted it straight but I wish this was one thing we shared :) I guess there is still hope. My sister Ang always had the straightest hair but sometime after puberty it started to take a nice curl. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
A couple weeks later it was Peach's turn. Her hair was finally getting long enough to take a tiny pony but it was so crazy and frizzy looking I just didn't know what to do. The beautician suggested we pixie cut it and just keep cutting it short until is thickens up. It is definitely still crazy but a little more manageable. She was so cute about the whole thing. When she came home she said, "Daddy am I still pretty?" Like a good daddy he told her that she was. She's been happy about it ever since. She's been watching a lot of Dora and wearing a backpack. She'll come to me as say, "Anything that you can need I have right here in my backpack." It's so funny that with the new cut we decided we'll probably dress her as Dora for Halloween. Sorry to steal your idea Ang :)
