Katy's First Official "Big Girl Haircut!"

Posted by Heather at Sunday, June 22, 2014

Kudos to this hair stylist- she was very patient and kid-friendly with Katy!

Sitting pretty!

New hairdo!

Up until this point, I've managed to trim and cut Katy's hair at home. With the help of YouTube videos and demonstrations, I snipped her first locks and trimmed and styled along the way. My decision to cut Katy's hair myself was partly motivated cost-cutting measures, but mostly because I wasn't quite sure how still Lil' Miss would sit for a hair stylist. I know how much she wiggles for me at home when I do her hair on a daily basis and I felt bad putting a stranger through the calisthenics sometimes needed to wrangle Katy in a semi-still position (never mind adding scissors to the mix!) 

Today, though, we made the spur-of-the-moment decision to venture to Great Clips in an after church, family adventure. Ted needed a haircut. I needed a haircut. Plus, now that ballet was over, Katy no longer needed a longer mane to put up in a bun. Haircut time for all!

Katy was all excited to be going somewhere for her haircut. However, once the time came to actually sit in the barber's chair, Lil' Miss was less than thrilled. Ted eventually calmed her with his silly antics that can only be described as, "Dad!" After her initial hesitation and some hand-holding, Katy enjoyed her first hair cut experience! (and, I'm happy to report, the cut looks relatively even- hooray! :-)

Now, we're all a few hairs less (some more than others- hee, hee, Ted! ;-) and Katy is happily sporting her new, cooler summer 'do!
