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.
Not too shabby, right?
