4 of 5 of us all got haircuts this weekend. The big deal, however, is that Meg got her very first haircut on Friday. It was more of a trim, really, but it’s all she needed.
The back of her hair is a bit straighter and longer than the rest of her hair. I’d been contemplating trimming it myself, but ultimately decided against it. I was afraid that she’d get the idea to cut her hair herself if she ran across a pair of scissors, so we went to a professional setting to help distinguish it in her mind.
Here she is before:
And here she is after:
Her hair is still a bit wet in this photo, but you can see that the back is even, so it looks more like a bob. She suddenly looks so much older to me. We also found some product for her hair, so she’s had a whole weekend of good hair days and gotten a lot of compliments. I’m so glad to have a handle on managing her hair! It’s so beautiful, and I want her to love her curls as she gets older, not curse them.
And here’s my new haircut:
The stylist probably removed 50% of the hair that was on my head through cutting and thinning. It feels so much better, and I feel so much less frumpy. Now just to drop some more of the weight…
At any rate, we’re all looking better around here. (Or a little less hairy anyway.)
