Last week Ivy asked if she could go get a haircut. She wanted to chop all her hair off. She’s been asking to cut her long hair off and on for a good year so I decided to just go with it. It’s her hair, after all, and if she wants it short, she should be able to have it short. We discussed the pros (less brushing, less tangles) and cons (no braids, no ponytails, it will take a long time to grow back) and she was still adamant about cutting it. So we booked her in for a cut.
First she had to let me take pictures of her beautiful long hair though.
Ahhh! It’s so thick and long and healthy! Her hair is really amazing- I just love it.
But honestly she hated having it brushed- it was a fight every single time; and she refused to wear braids or ponytails most of the time, so why not cut it I guess.
It was long enough that she could donate her hair, so that was a nice perk.
And, of course, she looks adorable.
It’s been over a week now and she’s had no regrets. She loves her haircut. I love it too, although I miss that crazy long hair too!
And now someone else who needs it more can have that lovely hair for their head.
I lied- her one regret is that she didn’t keep her braids to play with at home. 😉
