So, I decided it's been long enough. It's time. I should cut my hair. It's only been 18 months-ish since my last hair trim. I know, it's awful. Aren't you supposed to trim your hair every few months? I also think you're supposed to shower every day. I'm still working on that. That makes me sound like a greasy fly.
Anyway, I've been trying to figure out how I want to do my hair. I need to cut a lot of length off of it because I've gone through post-prego shedding, and it needs a good trim so it can look fuller again. We're also working on a hairstyle for Emma and a new one for TS. I think he looks better with longer boy hair (as in, not a buzz), and Emma really wants bangs.
Back to me, I searched the web for several ideas since I've felt very undecided on what to do. So, I decided to do what anyone else would do, and I asked my kids what I should do.
This is the conversation:
TS: "Yes! That one! I want that one. I want my hair cut like that."
ME: I gave TS a confused look when I realize he is saying he wants his hair cut this way and explained it was for me, which he then said no to.
TS: "Yes! That one for me!"
ME: Confused again and tried to re-explain that this was for my haircut, not his. (it was making us all laugh...)
TS: "No." (not even for him!)
(all of us give her a crazy look)
VIOLET: "No! Yuck!" as she starts spitting to get the taste out of her mouth.
Emma kept insisting that this was the one. And she was serious! haha!!! I had included this one only for humor's sake. Definitely didn't expect Emma to love it.
VIOLET: "Yes! Do this one! I like this one!"
So, as I write this, I'm planning on following her advice and doing this one. Sad to say, I will not be doing the hair cut from #4. Maybe I'll do my makeup that way instead. I would ask for opinions, but I'm getting my hair cut early tomorrow morning! Not enough time for opinions! Though, if you happen to read this between now and 9:30 am tomorrow (as in, Saturday morning) feel free to tell me what you think I should do.
And, we won't be cutting TS's hair like #1 or #2 above. I'm thinking something more along the lines of...a boy hair cut. Such as this, or slightly different, but sort of like this.
Thanks, Kyrie, for the idea!
I'll try to do a before and after of my hair.
