Day 5: Buh-Bye Long Hair


My girls have been asking for haircuts for a while now.  I finally found a Saturday without plans and made the appointments. 

Today was the big day.  Emma, who's hair reached her waist, had decided she wanted to cut it near her shoulder.  She also knew she had long enough hair that she would be able to donate it.  She was pretty excited to be able to donate it and help someone who needed it.

Before:
(I may have forgotten to take the before pictures this morning...but I dug up a couple good ones that showed how long their hair was.)

Maddie wanted her hair cut to her chin.  She had it like that a couple years ago and really liked it.  This was what she'd been asking for.  As we sat in the salon today waiting for our turn, I realized that she probably had long enough hair to donate hers as well.  When I told her I thought she had enough her little face lit up!

Before:


Our turn arrived and two happy girls climbed up into the chairs.  30 minutes later I was walking two girls to my car that I barely recognized with goofy grins from ear to ear. 

After:



It's the little things like haircuts that we often take for granted.  We had a fun morning together at the salon today.  Nothing crazy or unusual.  Nothing overly special.  Just a mom and two of her girls spending some time together.  These are the little things I know I will look back on and miss someday.

  1. I remember getting all of my hair cut off for the first time! Now mine stays short regularly, but it was such a good memory and time with my mom! I know your girls treasure their time with you as you do with them!

  2. Oh my, a girls day out. I loved those days with my girls (now 26 and 23). You are making me think I should call them out and we should all make a salon date, and then go out for coffee and muffins. Thank you for the trip down memory lane. :-)

  6. They look adorable, and that's so wonderful they were able to donate their hair, and were excited to do so. I took my daughter in about a month ago; she wanted an asymmetrical cut, and I was so blown away by her boldness that I cut mine much shorter than I've had it in years, in solidarity. You're right, doing something fun but simple is a great way to make memories.

  7. Great cuts for girls with big hearts! As someone who's donated her hair three times, I'm delighted they choose to do the same.
