Chopping

Elle's bangs are super long and she had begun rubbing her face trying to get them out of her way.  As you can tell she is not fond of the bangs.



Do you see the resemblence?

I think she was a little offended I compared her to Eddie... So a trim was in order or so I thought...



My cheaper side got the best of me and I thought "heck I can do this" right?!?


So I prepared my client who questioned my sanity...



Okay, so it is a LOT harder then I expected and took Colby and myself to rangle Elle and get the bangs semi even...

 After a bottle and a lot of consoling Elle was okay with it or should I say I was okay with it.  I plan to spend the $25 next time and have it professionally done... .

IT's always so hard for me to cut their hair for the first time. It always makes them look so grownup. Which is why Nora's hair is still in her eyes! Elle looks adorable, of course.

You're still cute no matter the length of your hair. Good job momma & papa!

I love this. Great job by the way. Before we married Dave had beautiful long blonde hair about to his shoulders. We attempted to be cheap on several occasions, and after a couple of glasses of wine, I would agree to cutting it myself. On one particular occasion (the night before his brother's wedding, where he was the best man) I may have accidentally given him a Steven Segal ponytail. I retired my hair cutting right then and there.

She does look older but still cute as ever. Can't wait to see you all in person in a few weeks.

Oh the things parents have to do. You did a great job on her hair. It is cute and YOU survived this new first moment. It will be a time to remember and when you look back on it it will not seem so dramatic. It will just bring back fond memories and laughter when you say, "Remember when we cute Elle's hair for the first time. Have a great day.
