In our house someone got a haircut and is donating her ponytail to Locks of Love (because it was the right length for their requirements). My birthday girl decided recently that after having long hair for years she wanted it cut before her birthday. So I made an appointment, but decided I would actually cut the ponytail at home. I thought it might cost less for just the trim to style it and we're "monetarily challenged" so this seemed best. Plus we have to send it in ourselves.
Here I present to you the before and after. You will quickly see why I don't trim my kids' hair normally. In Africa, though, I cut my husbands and my own thick wavy hair. My thought is I'm not in Africa and haircuts now & then are worth their weight in gold. Enjoy Bethany's new look!
"Are you ready? Are you sure?" B, "Mom, stop asking me. It makes me think I shouldn't be doing this!"
Thank you Liz! She can do wonders with a pair of scissors & a curling iron! This was on Saturday the 24th right after she got it styled.
I had to share this full length picture. She's kind of an 11 year old in a 14 year old body. Well, not so much body, but chronologically she is 14. I suppose she decided to LOOK more like her age today. Those shoes look like something I wore at her age! WHY did platform shoes have to come back into style? Just FYI, these were hand me downs. I didn't buy them. LOL!
This ends our tour of Bethany's hair. Stay tuned for birthday with the family blogging and some "Potty talk." It's not bad, I promise!
