Growing Out On A Limb

Eleanor’s First Haircut

Leave a comment

It’s funny how I can have two boys with thick fast-growing hair and also have a girl who, for three years, has had thin, wispy hair that seems to grow very slowly and in patches.  She sleeps and her hair becomes a frizzy mess that halos around her head.

I took her for her first real haircut not long after her third birthday – not because she truly needed it, but because the two pieces that have grown long kept falling into her eyes.  And I thought a little cut might make it thicken up a bit.

She was so very excited but she really had no concept of what a haircut was so I expected her to balk once she saw the big chairs and strangers started talking to her.

Nope.  She climbed right up in the seat and sat perfectly still for the seven minutes it took the hairdresser to trim her bangs and even out the back.

She felt so pretty when her hair was done.  It didn’t look that much different but I suppose every girl feels special after a little pampering!  20160831_173409-copy
