I tried to fight it for a couple of days, but then reality set in and something had to be done. We went to the salon and because of the type of hair style she went with I fully expected to have to get a very short boy type haircut. She did such a "good" job with her styling, that we couldn't even do that. Her cuts went so close that there was just no way to recover from them and any style would have looked chopped up. At that point I relied on the expert advice of the stylist and she shaped it into a cute little bob.
As she started cutting, the stylist asked lots of questions like is it hard to watch all her long hair go? Her daddy must be sad to see all that beautiful hair get cut off...Yes, it was hard to watch. Yes, her daddy is very disappointed to see it cut. Yes, I really miss seeing her long flowing slightly curly hair blowing in the wind, but it is really cute and it will grow back...hopefully. For now this is her new look. And I love it, too. She is such a sweet happy girl and this hair cut really brings out that bubbly personality that she has. I do miss it, but it is just hair, and it will grow back...until the next time. Something tells me this is preparation for a scary future of questionable hairstyles as a teenager.
