A Mistake with a Sweet Ending

Lately, Lydia has been asking to have her hair cut. We decided last night that today was the day. I offered to take her somewhere to have it cut, but she insisted that she wanted me to do it... and, I'm sure you can figure out where this is going.

She said she wanted her hair to look like her friend H's hair. I convinced her we should try shoulder length first and then cut it shorter if we decided we wanted to. Right after I reminded myself to make sure she didn't have her head tilted I made my first cut. And, well, her head was tilted. So much for shoulder length! So, I tried to fix it, but I kept making it worse. (Are you laughing yet, Jenn? It sounds oddly familiar, doesn't it? Sorry again about your 8th grade bangs!). Needless to say, I made an emergency appointment with a local salon and they swooped in and saved the day. I was pleased to find she didn't have to do too much trimming to even out my mistakes. BUT, I learned my lesson. I will not be cutting her hair at home again.

She looks sweet. And the style complements her tiny little face, so overall it turned out to be a good mistake!

Before: (OK, so I do miss her long hair a little bit.)
