snip.snip.snip.

scissors meets hair. on purpose.

i've tried before to talk her into a cute, sassy cut that wouldn't cause her so many tears in the mornings when we try to brush all the knotty, bedhead out. but, she insisted that she wanted to keep it long.

until a few nights ago. we were watching a movie and ashlyn fell in love with the leading actress--Drew Barrymore---and insisted that she wanted that haircut.

i already had hair appointments scheduled for all three of us for last night, but wasn't planning on any major differences for the girls. just trimming emma's and blending those bangs in that ashlyn decided she's growing out. that is, until she was determined she wanted it cut. i was sure after sleeping on that thought, that she'd change her mind.

but, she didn't!

and let me tell you...this morning was glorious. no tears while brushing (or curling), no stressed out mommy trying to deal with those tears....and she's got the biggest smile that i've ever seen grace her face....and she looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL. and so grown up. *sniff*

i'm pretty sure that daddy was choking back tears when he first saw her walk through the door last night. but really.........trading 7+" of hair for a happy, smiley, drama-free girl this morning was totally worth it! and i'm so glad that it was a decision that she made and one that she loves.

  1. Love the new 'do. She is such a cutie!! Hailey hates having her hair brushed- I've been thinking she needs hers cut.
    Did you donate her hair to Locks of Love?

  2. we haven't done anything with it yet. she was wanting me to put it in her treasure box, LOL. it's a box of papers, cards, trinkets and such that i keep for each of the girls. are their requirements for the locks of love? i'll have to google it, i guess.

  4. Darling!!! Ashlyn looks sooooo cute w/that perky 'do'! And, yes... there ARE requirements for "Lock of Love"... Shannon donated her cut hair to them two years ago and I think it was 10"-11". But, I'd check w/them just to make sure!

  7. ohmygoodness - her haircut is adorable!! I've been begging Wendy to let me cut hers down - I love hers short and now it's all long and messy. Maybe I need to rent some Drew Berrymore....

  9. sharyn, i always adored wendy's hair in the pictures you share when it was a cute above the shoulder length. pssssst...the movie was the wedding singer---definitely some parts in the beginning you won't want her watching---well, hearing really. (language that needs sensored)

    cynthia...definitely not. we either have to dry it with a round curling brush to flip it that way OR just 5 quick sections curled with a 1" curling iron. super quick. :o)

  11. Totally adorable! I have a 12" piece of incredible hair from #2SON to send to locks of love. And he still had plenty left for a pony tale. I always say he is the child of my "hippie" soul. He has all of the Grateful Dead bears tatooed around the top of one arm.
