My daughter's hair. My daughter's hair!
Where to begin?
She was born bald and stayed that way for about 8 months...
Went dandelion for a while...
Then she finally grew a thin crop of blonde hair...barely enough to hold a barrette.
I haven't cut it except for a couple of trims.
Slowly, it got longer and longer.
Finally-FINALLY this summer it has been long enough to actually do something with! It has been so much fun to be a little more creative than a quick half-up or barrette.
This was probably the best hair-do to date...
A french braid on both sides meeting in a pony in the back. Ah-so pretty!
And then IT happened.
She cut it. A big slanted chop right out of the front.
Tears and devastation followed.
Well, not really...but it was terrifying to hear the words,
"Mama, I cut it! It's so pretty!" coming from the bathroom.
I did the best I could to even it out. The result was a short bob with short bangs.
She was thrilled with it so I was happy.
It is a good thing she's so cute-she can pull of any hairdo.
