I made appointments for me and my girls to get their hair cut today.
Erin was first. She just got her edges trimmed up.
My five year old has also been growing her hair out, but she was really nervous this morning and she kept going back and forth about donating it or just trimming it.
In the end she decided to just trim it because she didn't want the kids at school to not recognize her. She is still going to continue growing it out though, and when it gets really long then she wants to donate it. I have been really impressed by her courage to even want to donate her hair for a good cause.
Finally it was my turn. I was a little nervous.
Just like that it was...chop chop chop.
I really like how it turned out. It feels so much lighter and I love how it's not itching my neck.
A big thanks to Kristy Fairbanks at the Kutting Edge Salon in Logan for doing our hair today. We LOVE Kristy! My mom, sisters, me and my girls have all been going to her for many years. She is a talented artist and she is so much fun to chat with. Through some interesting circumstances we have also gotten to know Kristy's mom. Make-a-Wish contacted Kristy's mom to ask her to make a princess gown for our little Erin. It was really fun to figure out the connections between the amazing woman making Erin's gown and our talented hairdresser. Our make-a-wish trip is coming up so soon. We are all really excited. Okay...we are way more than excited. We talk about it everyday. Everyday.
