It happens to all of femalekind. We think we want a drastic hair cut. We're quite sure of it. Confident right up to the minute of the first snip....and then that confidence shatters.
Turns out, 5 year olds are not immune to this particular drama...
Fade to last Tuesday:
Stylist: Okay, now show me again. How short do you want it?
Lauryn: Right here. [touches her cheek below her ear]
Stylist: Does your Daddy know you're cutting off all this blond hair? Show me again.
Lauryn: Right here! [repeat gesture]
Stylist: Okay, I'm about to cut it. Are you sure baby?
Lauryn: [enthusiastic nod with a huge smile plastered on her face]
The stylist makes that first snip....and cue the waterworks. A pitiful chorus of "I look terrible. I don't like it. I don't look good!" Lauryn was crying. The stylist was crying. And I'm just shaking my head at the entire female gender, remember how many times I was in her same shoes, holding in the tears by sheer force of will and pride. Crazy.
She would barely consent to me snapping a picture to send to Daddy, in spite of many reassurances that she looks adorable.
Thank you for giving me insight to how my C4 will respond when we do the same thing soon. haha That is completely how Chrissalyn would behave. lol
AW! Lauryn looks SO CUTE! I LOVE the haircut! LOL, and thanks for sharing this. I've been there before, too, and I will join you in shaking my head.
Awww! Sweet girl! Long hair or short she always looks beautiful!
Ahhh, wait until prom...but I wouldn't change it for the world...
