Can’t believe the week is almost over! Abby had her first haircut last night! She is 2 1/2 so I guess the time was about right! She has loads of curls and being biracial, her hair is very dry so it was time to take care of the ends! In all I think she lost about 2 inches from the bottom but boy did it make a difference! She thought she was big cheese sitting in the salon chair and I almost cried! Here is how our night went:
To make her hair easier to cut, we straightened it at home – well, as much as possible. Mommy is so not a stylist.
The finished product at home! Thank goodness for Ice Age that held her attention long enough for me to straighten her hair somewhat. Of course we had it pretty straight at home but by the time we got to the salon (1 mile away) it had started to curl back up!
Abby sitting in the chair for the first time getting ready for her cut! She didn’t care for the cape!
Getting ready for the first snip!
Losing her first curls! Of course I kept them 🙂
Some smiles for the camera! I think her favorite part was looking at herself in the mirror. She’s a vain one. She could spend an hour looking at herself, making silly faces, and dancing in the mirror.
Last few snips! She definitely got antsy by this time so we had to pull out cell phones to keep her still for a couple more minutes! I don’t know how she would have done with a stranger cutting her hair but since it was her “aunt” she did really well!
For being such a big girl, we celebrated with a trip for ice cream! She was so excited to pick out her own flavor! She went with “pink.” She tends to chose by color versus flavor 🙂
Playing with Daddy! These two definitely have my heart! I don’t know where I’d be without them!
