Lucy’s First Haircut

Last week, we got Lucy’s hair cut. For the first time. At age 3. That’s how slowly my kid’s hair grows. I mean, really, up until this year, she hardly had any. And, if it wasn’t for the straight strands underneath all her beautiful curls making the back look like a mullet, we probably would have waited even longer.

We don’t have any children’s hair cut places in town, so our options were either Great Clips or a salon. We opted for a salon and, boy am I glad we did. The stylist was SO good with Lucy and the hair cut REALLY enhances her curls. It seems MUCH more curly now, which I love. So happy.

And Lucy? She did awesome. She didn’t cry. She didn’t fuss. She sat, intently staring in the mirror as the stylist worked.

When the stylist was done, she sprinkled fairy dust on Lucy’s hair. And that was when she won all of us over. Best children’s stylist ever.

Before we left, Lucy insisted on sitting under the dryer like the other women.

And, we had to get a picture of her in front of the salon, since we hadn’t gotten one when we arrived.

Her hair doesn’t look too much different, but it is a little shorter and a *little* less shaggy. Honestly, I didn’t want it cut “short” because I want it to grow a bit. We needed it cleaned up a little, but with all those curls, it’s always all over the place! I wonder how long it will be before her next haircut!
