Tressed Out

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with Em's hair. As it's gotten longer and longer, it's become more evident that the curly ends are temporary and she's destined to be a straight-hair gal. I've attempted to hold onto those curls by postponing her first haircut, but it was finally time.

Combing out the ends had become a chore, filled with tangles, and I even saw a few split ends, so we made an appointment at a kids' haircut place last weekend. We showed Em the photo gallery on the salon's website, and she was literally squealing with excitement.

We arrived early, which was fine as it gave her a chance to enjoy the abundance of toys.

Then it was her turn to meet her stylist and choose a fun car to sit in during her cut. She also chose to watch WALL-E while the gal did her magic, although it was over in about 15 minutes so she didn't catch to much. It was still a nice distraction for her, though.

I told the stylist that while I'd be sad to lose the curls, I wanted her to trim enough to keep her tresses healthy. She took a couple inches off, and we still have the curls. Huzzah!

So all in all we came away with no trauma. Em absolutely enjoyed the experience, and I've got my baby girl's first haircut over and done with, no worse for wear.

  1. Her hair is so pretty! I had crazy curls when I was little and actually never lost them, though sometimes I wish I could be more of a straight-hair sort of girl!

  4. Any chance the weight of long hair just doesn't let it curl up and next trim, you'll get the same curls at the end? Hope so!
