Hi! Remember me??? I know….I know……I haven’t blogged in SO long! But I’m back!!! And I’m sharing a fun personal post from today!
Zoe will be 6 in 2 months and she’s never had a real haircut. I took her for a “dry cut” last summer, just to clean up some ends, but this summer, her hair was destroyed! The chlorine wreaked havoc on her gorgeous tresses and fried her hair. It was a fun summer, full of camp, the beach cabana and a LOT of swimming. But what wasn’t fun for this momma, who had to attempt to brush that hair and definitely not for the girl who cried because of the knots. I wanted to get her a real, proper haircut but I wasn’t trusting just anyone to do it. We decided the only person fit for the task was my long-time hair dresser, Andrew John (he also cuts my husband’s hair for the past several years!) Andrew is the best and we pay a premium for him and his cuts always grow out amazingly, which is one of the things that makes his price so worth it, since I only need a few cuts a year! He also doesn’t typically cut children’s hair, but we were going to make him do it anyway! He was happily up for the task and Zoe loved feeling like such a big girl! She sat perfectly still (not easy for a kid that constantly fidgets!) and was quite serious most of the time. She didn’t talk or ask questions, in typical Zoe-fashion….she just took it alllll in. She also got a big kick out of us holding her water for her to take sips from, in true princess, pampering style. Ever the diva!
Little sister got to tag along and read magazine and color. She already had her real first haircut last month, after she decided to do a little trim at home herself. She did quite the hack job (thankfully she did NOT touch her bangs!) but it was literally a few days before we were leaving a big family cruise. I needed to take her to have her hair cleaned up before we left. Never a dull moment with that child around!
