My girls both wanted to have their hair cut.... it was getting long and harder to manage... we all love long hair and do not plan to have short hair, but once in a while, it is fun to have a haircut... and it makes it easier to handle.
Both of them have beautiful hair... and they wear it in beautiful ways. This daughter's hair is fine and thin... the waves are only because she had had it braided or curled - it really doesn't hold a curl well, and she would like it to. She has learned to work with it though and she puts it in so many attractive styles. :) Her hair had become very thin at the ends and dry and it really needed some help. It sure looks beautiful here in this picture, though! :)
I am not a professional hair stylist, by ANY means. My only training has been in the actual cutting...by trial and error. I started by giving my brothers haircuts when I was about 14 years old or so... and have always cut the hair of my husband and children, so I have had a LOT of practice. :) I go to get my hair cut and I watch to glean ideas and hints.
I cut a total of about 7" off ... and did some layering... then did a face framing for the front.... I just learned that part on my last haircut. :)
She LOVES it... and it is much easier to care for...and she can enjoy leaving it down more now.
She loves it and it really is cute on her...
Both girls can still pull their hair back, they can still braid it or wear it down. Both found it odd to brush their hair and come to the end of their hair so quickly after it was cut.... 6 and 7 inches is quite a difference.
Here is the hair that I cut off from both girls... it was a lot. :)
When we set things up in the entryway to cut hair, my husband said, "You're going to cut their hair???!!! NOOOO!!! I LOVE their long hair." Now, actually, he was not forbidding this at all, but just had some trouble letting the hair go. :)
He liked their haircuts and was glad their hair is still long, but it was a bit painful for him to see it go. The hair continues to grow.... we don't cut it often and this was a more drastic cut than usual, but it was a help to them.
It can also sometimes be hard to get used to. This time, they both just loved it.
The boys are asking again WHEN I will be cutting their hair... it wasn't that long ago... but the time is getting close again. It is nice to have their hair stay nice and neat and trimmed, so I will probably be doing theirs pretty soon also.
Thank you for stopping by... it was so nice to have you visit and I hope you have a wonderful day. :)
