Back in the spring, Allie asked for a bob. It was the first time anyone had requested a haircut. And I admit that bobs are super cute. But when her dance instructor got wind of Allie's desire for a bob, she begged and pleaded with her to wait until after the annual dance recital. I promised the girls that I would bring them to my hairstylist because I trust no one else to cut their hair. But then it was summer and I thought it would be nice to have fresh haircuts right before school started. Well, we weren't able to get in before school began but close enough.
I feared that Allie would flip out going from well beyond waist-length hair to a bob so we agreed on an in-between length with it angled in the front. She loves it and I do too. It looks so much thicker. And if she still wants a bob, she can get one. (Probably after this year's dance recital.)
Nervous but excited
Funny side story. People are always asking me if I can tell the girls apart. Yes, always. I thought this was a picture of Emily. Had to check the part to figure out which kid it was.
And then it was Crystal Gayle's turn.
Emily kept her hair long. It's around her waist now.
Anna's appointment is next week. She's last because a year ago when I trimmed her hair a half an inch, she had a mental breakdown. She needed (and I needed her) to see her sisters' with haircuts first.
You can't tell from her expression in this photo but Allie just loves her shorter hair.
"Ann-na! Leave Katie (the bear) alone!"
