A Hair Raising Adventure

This past weekend marked a big milestone in my girls lives. They each had their very first haircut. This has been a long time coming. Big A is creeping up on 4 years old and her hair (as you'll see) was completely out of control. Little A, at 2 years old, just needed some evening out of her wisps.


Little A wasn't too thrilled with the lady who had to comb out the mega-tangles from her hair. Maybe NOW she'll let me do it the easy way at home.










Big A finally got over her fear of having her hair cut. She was actually jovial during this little event.












Little A was pretty good at following directions. She only moved her head about 100 times, instead of the 150 that she normally would have. Consequently, we have a little uneven line in the back. Oh well.










Check out the length of Big A's hair. CRAZY. She was born with a head full and we have great hair genes in my family. Contrary to popular belief, we do not put Miracle-Gro on our kids hair.
















Here's Little A after her trim. That face! She finally has even bangs and pretty even length. She couldn't wait to jump out of that chair.











Big A is getting the final amount of length taken off. We opted for no bangs and only had about 3 inches of length taken off. Just enough to even it all out.
















Little A got a gold star for her bravery. Not her listening skills.
















Big A got a gold star too, for finally being a big girl and getting that first haircut. We're so proud!

I cannot believe how long Big A's hair was! Wow!

I threaten mine with getting haircuts since they can't keep their hair tangle-free. I'm talking pixie-cut short, like Demi Moore in "Ghost".

Wow, that's some serious hair! What sweet little girls. Hooray for their gold stars. Nice haircuts!

They are gorgeous. What a fun post, Angie!

OMG - I had no idea her hair was that long. She must have it pulled back in most of your pictures. You could totally do a locks of love donation.

And my girls do the same thing - Madalyn has bangs, and Katie doesn't.

Oh my gosh...what gorgeous hair they both have!!! And such sweet little faces!!

I am glad I have a boy as I have no clue how to do little girl hair..I would have to take a class if I had a daughter that had hair as long as Big A's!! :) Either that or it would always be in a pony!

Such good girls!

Take Care,
Sonya

Look at those sweet girls and that hair, beautiful. I will my little girl's hair would grow. The boys have better hair than her.

Rhea said...

They both have GORGEOUS hair! I can't believe how long Big A's was. wow. Pretty though.

Michelle said...

Are you kidding me? I can't say which part I'm more amazed by... this is truly the first haircut for each or that they have so much hair.

*sigh*

Have you seen the pictures of Little Miss? She's 3 and looks like she still is mostly bald. And she's had probably 3 trims to try to even it out, but those hardly took anything off and it's still not even to her shoulders.

I think I hate you. Or maybe just them. I know my mom definitely does ;)

Holy CRUD!

Gert was born with TONS of hair, had tight, curly piggie tails at 4 months, and finally last fall, after taking 45 minutes to brush her hair, I had enough and we got it cut. She looks like Dora now and she LOVES it.
