To cut? Or not to cut?
THAT is the question.
Ok, baby haircuts in the grand scheme of things is not REALLY that big of a deal. But for the mama, baby's first haircut FEELS like a big deal! Mamas of curly-haired little ones, I can only imagine saying 'Good-bye' to those sweet curls the first time would be traumatic!
My babies don't have the sweet curls, so I said 'Good-bye' to a stringy, straight mullet. Not quite as sweet sounding as 'Baby Curls'... either way, it was weird to give my baby girl her first haircut!
Ok, peeps. I took the ram by the horn and pulled a DIY. (Ok, did I just call my little gal a ram? With horns? Ok, weird... just replace it with your favorite line.. I can't think of a different one...)
I found a video tutorial for a little girl's bob haircut complete with a stack in the back! (Video found HERE.) I decided it was worth trying for FREE. I could always take her to get it fixed at a salon if I needed to!!
I'm pleased to say, it turned out alright! A hairstylist would probably be MORTIFIED to say the least... BUT Y'ALL. I saved 20 bucks! Seminary life calls for cutting costs! I can't say, "Go on! Try cutting your little girl's hair yourself!!" I CAN say, "Proceed with caution."
This little endeavor took about 2 hours... complete with numerous breaks for fruit snacks, goldfish, turning on new TV shows, getting hair out of said snacks, spraying, re-spraying hair, taking deep breaths, trying not to freak out about sweet baby hairs on the ground, and more.
Anyway, thanks for reading and NOT judging! :) We're friends here, right? Shoot it to me straight. Would you cut your little ones' hair to save a few bucks??
Have a fantastic day, y'all!
