Saturday Funday: Evie's New Hair Cut!

To keep with our new years resolution, our weekly Funday outing was to my salon for hair cuts!  

Evie had her first hair cut about 11 months ago in preparation for Aunt Katie's wedding. It was mostly to cut off the scraggly new born hair ends.  I cut it in the late Fall but it was pretty crooked. We decided to splurge on a fun trip to the salon for a really good cut before baby sister arrives.

We'd watched the Small Potatoes Hair Cut episode a million times in preparation, so Evie was SO excited to meet my stylist and get her hair cut.  The girl who cuts my hair has two daughters about Evie's age so I knew she'd be great with Evie.

She did the consultation on the booster seat and then we walked Evie over to the shampoo bowl, but she was terrified. Hey, it was worth the shot.



 When we got back to the chair, Evie wanted to sit with me.  She did really well for the first 10 minutes and then it was like a wrestling match.  I almost regretted asking for little layers in the back, but I knew a little extra fight up front was worth the shorter hair that would be easier to brush every night after bath time.






 Eric held her for the last few minutes and Akosua finished evening out the front.  You can tell Evie was DONE!

 Once we finished and she saw the finished product in the mirror, she was giddy. She kept squealing and jumping up and down.

I could not even believe how much hair she cut off!  When all was said and done, she got a good two-three inches off the back!
 It looks SO cute.  I can't believe how much more grown up Evie looks.  And my goodness. It was worth the struggle at the salon. It is SO much easier to wash, dry, brush, style.  Whew.


 Pretty girls after our hair cuts!



Here's two more as the week had progressed. Still has that fresh from the salon look!


Hopefully the next trip is a little less wiggly, but even if it's not, I think she did great for being two years old at mommy's salon! And a big thanks to Akosua for her patience and extra care for Evie!
