Ella's First Haircut

I like my little girls hair to be long. Thats just how I like it. Plus, I think their hair is just gorgeous. I hate to cut it at all! So, I wait until I think it really looks like it needs to be cut/trimmed before I let scissors touch it. With Aubrey, she was probably 3 1/2 when I trimmed it myself. Her hair grew fast. And then when she was 5, we took her to get her first official cut at a kids salon. And then with Ella, well, her hair took FOREVER to grow at first so it was just last week, at the age of 5, that scissors finally touched those beautiful curls. She was SO excited to go to Snip-Its, this really cute kids hair salon. We don't take the kids here for all of their haircuts, but we take them here for their first to make it extra special:)

I had to use my phone to take these pics, so they aren't the best, but enjoy!





She got to put this special haircut card into a machine to get prizes after she was done-a hair scrunchy and a lollipop!

After picture(at home later that day). Two inches were trimmed off-not a huge difference, but enough to make it look healthier. Yea Ella! Lookin good girlfriend.

How cute. I didn't even know there was such a beauty shop. I'm going to suggest prizes to my stylist on Saturday when I go in to have my hair dippity-dooed.

I can't believe you made 5 years without a hair cut. My girls grow mullets so we have to start trimming at about 1 1/2. But I do love her beautiful curls. She's so darling!

Thank goodness. When I say that she was getting a hair cut internally screamed "NO! She has perfect hair!" I was relieved to see that it was just a trim. You are right, your girls have beautiful hair! Looks great Ella!!
