You gotta love a place where you can buy a t-bone steak to grill out, a pad lock for the back gate and get your hair cut too!!
The girls and I were shopping at Wal-Mart on Tuesday and on a whim decided to get Bren's hair cut.
Being a hairstylist's daughter, I would normally not choose Wal-Mart for a hair cut just as I'm sure my girls would not choose Wal-Mart for photo prints or studio sessions when they grow up, but it was right there and we were all in the mood.
Bren has been asking for a haircut for a few weeks now.
I knew it was necessary, but I still wanted to hang onto those soft (but very dry) curls as long as I could.
I bit the bullet though and signed her in before I lost my nerve.
Bren was good as gold,
feeling so big and special while I watched what remained of her babyhood fall to the ground in little champaign colored spirals.
She really wanted her hair cut to fall between her chin and shoulder so it would be free to swing. I, however, am not that brave yet.
I instructed the stylists to keep it at least two inches below her shoulders so that she could still wear pigtails if necessary.
Because she'll still be modeling hair accessories, I need her to still have that versatility.
Maybe once Kindergarten starts and the modeling tapers off, we can take the last couple of inches off so that she can have her swingy hair for Fall.
She'll be playing soccer this Fall, so a shorter bob might be better for that.
She's a spunky girl and a spunky cut that moves with her would suit her personality well.
Plus, it will always grow back right?
Her hair finally looks thick and healthy.
All of the broken ends from too many pigtails are gone and now she has shiny, flippy hair that is much easier for me to manage!
