Up until today, my girls have only had mama-cuts. Ellie's hair is quite thin and grows slowly, so she hasn't needed much more than a trim here and there. Stephanie's hair, on the other hand, is a gift from her Granddad. It's thick and amazing, and it was starting to need management. My trim of her bangs was enough to keep it out of her eyes, but it needed shaping. Today, Stephanie got her first haircut in a salon. Being the nutty, obsessed mama that I am, I took lots of pictures and a short movie (I know).
Stephanie was a perfect angel in the chair! She held perfectly still from the moment we sat her down until the moment the drape was taken away. She wasn't nervous. She didn't fidget or fuss. She just sat quietly, patiently cooperating as Amelia cut her hair. Within minutes, everyone there was commenting on how impressive it was, and by the time she was done, Amelia announced that Stephanie behaved much better in the chair and held more still than most of her adult clients. When you're good, you're good! The sweetest thing is now that she has little layers, her heavy hair can't fight its desire to curl anymore, and she has the cutest little flippy 'do!
