Everyone has different priorities and it just so happens that in this family we don’t place a lot of value in haircuts. Some of you are probably thinking and it shows. I have a lot of respect for my friends who are stylist and someday when I have more money I’ll take care of my hair, but for now I’m just kind of meh about it. It’s dead to me (because hair is pretty much dead).
So the guys in the family get haircuts at home. Evie recently had a big change actually.
It was even longer than it was in this picture. It was really shaggy and in his face. I wanted to get it done before baby Elle came, but we all know she came before I was ready. So J cut it.
and here he is with his big brother do.
I’ve wanted to get SJ’s hair cut for a long time, and at one point she agreed. Except come to find out she wanted her hair cut to be “long and yellow”. In other words she wanted Rapunzel’s hair.
When I explained that hair cut means her hair would get shorter she protested. She was not interested UNTIL… I said I was going to get my haircut short. Now she’s on board. I always chop my locks after having a baby because I shed SOOOOO much. There are long hairs tangled up in the baby’s hands, in the shower, in the dryer (all wadded and knotted up) hair all over the back of my jacket, hair in my food.
HAIR. HAIR. HAIR everywhere. I can’t stand it.
So If I am going to loose that much hair I would rather it be a little shorter. My plan is to go from this
SJ’s cut will be about the same. I tried to get her involved in picking what she wanted, but even though she understands about the length it seems she still thinks she gets to choose the color which is odd because I don’t color my hair. So as we are looking through potential hairstyles she says very matter of factly with a serious face that she wants this one.
I say That one? as I point to the colorful pixie cut on the screen and she looks at it and nods yes. I asked her if it was because of the color and she said yes. She was not laughing she just wants My Little Pony hair and it’s not that strange to her.
I made two separate appointments for Tuesday so it’s official. The hair is going to go. I will be sure to post the after pictures next week. I don’t plan for either of us to get rainbow colors, but we’ll see.
I chopped off my hair with baby #1, but my husband was kind of sad. i didn’t realize all the shedding actually made this a good choice. I don’t like my hair short, but maybe just shorter would be a good choice. 🙂
Your little guy looks so handsome! It’s crazy how much a haircut can change them. We do all our cuts at home. My husband cuts his hair, my boys’ hair, and on occasion mine. I’m not sure, though, I will let him cut my daughter’s hair when it comes to it.
Can’t wait to see your new do! You make a great point about all the shedding. I always feel like I’m going bald so much comes out.
Smart to get your cut after the baby is born, it’s too easily to tangle! It’s a fresh start too and pretty cool that it’s a family event! Your son looks adorable, can’t wait to see the girls new cuts!
I lost a lot of hair postpartum, too. Ezie’s hair is super cute! And I love SJ’s choice! 😉
