When it was time to even out Jaina's curls, I remember sitting her on a stool in the bathtub and attempting to trim her hair with kitchen scissors, and failing miserably. I didn't realize how hard it was to cut curly hair on a squirming two year old. We didn't try another haircut again for a whole year. And that time, we let the professionals do it.
Jayce's first hair cut was around 10 months, I think. We just used the clippers on him and buzzed it right off. Easy peasy. We'd continue to do the same haircut for many years to come.
Now Jayce likes to go get his hair cut at a real salon. Sometimes I take him to mine and sometimes we just go to Great Clips.
Brian was getting pretty shabby over Christmas break, so he decided to take Jayce with him to get a hair cut.
"I go, too! I get my hair cut, too! Just like Jayce!" Jocelyn insisted.
She hopped up in the stool as big as can be and followed the stylist's directions perfectly.
Since she was growing a nice mullet in the back, I had them take 2 inches off the back and kind of blend in her short hair in front with the curls in back.
My Big Girl :)
I remember the days when Jayce was scared of haircuts. He's sure come a long way!
And lollipops afterwards? Now *that* is just the icing on the cake.
