Brooke likes short hair. She likes it partly because it’s easier to do and partly because she likes anything that’s more boyish because she’s passionately a self proclaimed tomboy.
So despite how much I was loving her hair finally getting longer (after her short haircut last summer) I finally agree to cut it after her begging for weeks. I started cutting her hair and oh my gosh she was moving around like crazy. Like, huge, huge movements. She kept randomly running her hands through her hair or moving it, while I was cutting. She’d moved her head or randomly, suddenly look to the side. It was horrible trying to cut her hair.
I’ve gotten to a place with Brooke where I try to not initiate any arguments so after telling her a couple times to stop moving or hold still (nicely) I finally just gave up because I knew she’d get pissed if I kept saying it. I did my best to cut it fairly evenly but there was one head toss in particular that caused me to cut a chunk of her hair in the front.
Luckily she looks really good with a very choppy, funky haircut so it works!
She wasn’t wearing a shirt because she hates when the falling hair lands her shirt. I need to get a hair cutting tarp thing since I do all of the kids’ haircuts!
After the cut I asked if I could take some pictures of her new haircut and she was super excited about it. I didn’t tell her any way to pose, she just started posing this and that way all on her own. She felt really pretty and cool with her new haircut!
