First up, the teenie booper! The worst first right? I so so so wanted her to look nice and like her new "no hassles" hair cut, so lots of pressure! BEFORE
We watched a video on how to cut hair at home (thanks to the bookmobile) and started in. First, I made a ponytail with all the hair from the front to just behind the ears.
Next I trimmed the nape short. Then split the back into 2 sections, like for piggy tails. Held them straight out the back and cut them, making lots of layers. With her wavy hair, this takes off a lot of weight.
Then I just did some little cleanup and voila!
(I see a little of myself in this photo!) She loves the new do! YEAH! I have won! It is much lighter and she doesn't mind wearing a little clip to keep some away from her eyes.
Now for a little trim for the littlest one. A few years ago we chopped all her beautiful locks off for cancer donation, so she's still dealing with some uneven spots.
Her hair is the most like mine, I just did a quick cut in the back middle for a guide and also the sides to hopefully be even enough.
Beautiful! She wants to grow the bangs now, so I left them.
The middle child just needed a little trim to help with the ends. She has thicker hair, so I had to separate it and just trim.
Come back again to see the next post of the final family member's hair cut! Boy, I was saving money left and right by doing all this myself. April means a new hair do for myself though. Don't quite trust my 13 year old to do it! haha. Using up a gift certificate for foils and haircut...can't wait!
