A New Do for School

Along with all you other moms (come on, raise your hand if you took your kid in too!), I took Maddy in for a "back-to-school" haircut.


I wasn't sure exactly what to do with her hair. She has perfectly beautiful thick and straight black hair that I love -- the straightness that I have envied and wished for my entire life!

It was getting long and often tangled. She doesn't like to have it pulled back in a pony or piggies. And so much pool time in the last few weeks made it feel rough and clumpy and resulted in tears and screeches of "OW OW OW" at my attempts to brush it in the mornings.

I gave my hairdresser an indication of how much to cut off -- like an inch and a half or
two inches sounded good. Turned out that she took off about 3 inches,
a bit shorter than I really thought it would be, but it's so cute!

Maddy loves it and says it is so easy to comb -- which is so nice, esp. with the busy mornings of getting out the door for school coming up Thursday, Aug. 20.



Watch for first day of school pictures and the school report soon!

She looks adorable! Jade's hair got really snarly when it was long too, although she will let me fix it!

Hope Maddy is excited about going back to school! She will look adorable in her uniform and newly cut hair!

Kim said...

That is a cute hair cut! but she would be cute anyway. Lia's hair has not been cut in over a year. She wants it to grow very long, but I think that I have about reached my limit!

Kate said...

Looks absolutely adorable!!! I'm thinking you all are up...and getting ready for the first day as I type...we don't go back until after Labor Day!!!

Can't wait to see how Day 1 went...I'm sure it will be a great year!!!

Kim said...

Super cute! I love the short bob! Yes, Mason did get his hair cut and Alyssa will have her turn before Preschool starts.

I hope Maddy had a great Firts Day of school!

She looks ADORABLE!!!!! I am loving Lily Wen's shorter and sassier hair! We don't fight about brushing it anymore either! That makes it all worth it, doesn't it?

Shari said...

Her hair is so cute! Can't wait to see the back to school pics!!

Jill and Rick said...

CUTE! Hope her first day of school started off well today.

I'm so torn about doing back to school haircuts. The girls really aren't quite due yet; I may just hold off. Decisions decisions!

Too cute!!

I wish I had taken my daughters in for a cut. I decided to cut their hair myself, and ended up cutting way more than I wanted to! Next time, I will take them to a professional!

Donna said...

So cute! Can't wait to hear how the first days of school went!

Casey said...

Oh! I love it!! But you know I like shorter hair on little girls... I did debate with Em, but that cut is so easy!! It looks ADORABLE.

Hope school goes well too!

Erin said...

Janet... she looks so cute! I love the hat. I really love short hair on little girls. I am trying to grow Libby's a bit (just for a change)... but I think short hair is the cutest. It looks so chic! Hope you're having a great end of summer. I've missed reading blogs... soon though, I will be back!

Sharon said...
