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.)
