Impromptu Haircut

I've been wanting to give Lucy a haircut for a while, so I guess this wasn't totally impromptu but it was spontaneous for a Sunday evening. I was waiting till beach camping was over because I needed to be able to pull her hair back in a ponytail while playing at the beach. My other reasons:
1 - The front hair is shorter than the back. Her hair would look more even if it was "bob" style.
2 - Ever since summer arrived, she's been scratching the back of her neck (where her hair lays) like crazy. She's created a horrible rash back there so I often put her hair in a ponytail to get it off her neck. Hopefully this will solve the problem.
Here's the Before and After:
She was amazing and held still the entire time! A little Super Why on TV does the trick!
She has the haircut I wish I could have. I guess that's the beauty of having kids....you can turn them into mini-me's?

Love it! So cute! I wish I could sport a do like that, too. Although some days I think I'd be happy with a haircut like my own children. ;-)

As always, Lucy's adorable!You're so right. I wish I had blond straight hair that I could cut into a bob like grace's.

It looks really good, nice work.
Kids staying still for haircuts is something that has yet to be experienced in my house, including when I am the recipient.

Just when we thought she couldn't get any cuter...

I want straight, blonde hair... even just for a day, it would be nice to know how it felt.

I didn't know you cut hair! You are so talented with your hands. She looks adorable. I want to give Mya a haircut like that, but Jarond wants to grow her hair out.

LOVE it!! Lucy is definitely a little girl with that hair cut, no more baby!

Camille said...

So dang cute. I'm super impressed. I used to love to cut hair but I never cut my kids' hair. Well, I do cut my boys' hair from time to time. But I'm scared to touch my girls'. You go, girl! Darling!!
