cut it off ...

In my house, haircuts are few and far between. This happens for several reasons.


First, I am cheap. I don't like to spend money on things like haircuts or makeup or non-running clothing.


Second, I can't be bothered with the upkeep. I am extremely low maintainence. I wear my hair pulled back everyday and Chapstick is the extent of my morning routine. My poor girls suffer for this. I often give them ponytails or throw on a headband. I don't see the point in doing much else.


Third, I am not really sure what styles look good on us. So, instead everyone gets a bob and I just let it grow out.


This is what I looked like the last time I cut my hair (November 2008):

And this is what it looks like now (June 2010):

These are pretty much the only two hairstyles I have ever had. Once every two years or so, I cut my hair to within inches of my scalp. And then do nothing with it.


I would like my girls not to suffer a similar fate. So, yesterday, I took them to get their haircut (it was Dilly's first). And I left the style up to them (well, Dizzle and Doodle anyway) and this is how it turned out.

Y'all clean up real nice!!! :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of your curls. Mine is naturally curly, too, but it's not a cute curl like y'all's. It's got more of the finger-in-a-light-socket look to it. God bless the flat iron.

SUPER DUPER cute. I cut all my boys hair to save money. I get mine cut about once a year, which reminds me I NEED to do that today..

I like your hair long..

Cute cuts. I'm the same with hair; I grow and grow it as long as I can. You can do a lot with a ponytail and a headband, right?

My boys, though, like theirs really short so theirs gets buzzed down to the wood - again, my way to avoid getting cuts too often.

your girls have beautiful hair! love those curls!

Judi said...

Well it looks like they chose the bob too. Adorable! I especially love Dilly's bangs!

I do the same - I usually get my hair cute once a year and my girls do every two years. They usually donate their hair so they have to wait longer to cut theirs! I'm all for a pony tail!
