Kasen had her first official hair cut on Sunday. I’ve trimmed it once, but that was it . . . and boy, was it overdue. She had tons of split ends and she had so many tangles every morning that buckets of tears were cried. We decided it was enough torture for her – time to get it cut, get it healthy, and reduce the stress every morning. So, Kasen and I hopped in the car and headed to Snip-Its – the Chuck-E-Cheese of children’s haircuts!! Thankfully, it wasn’t crowded. I guess too many people were Christmas shopping and there were Sunday football games to be watched.
After we entered the salon, we were greeted so pleasantly and it was a wonderful experience for Kasen. She jumped right up in the chair ready for her big cut. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her sit so still. LOL She did tell the hair dresser that she wanted it short. We settled for a pretty major trim. It was hard enough to talk her out of ALL PINK HAIR in the car on the way to the salon. LOL Not only that, but she did ask me if scissors ever hurt while they cut your hair. And then she asked me if the scissors ever hurt your skin while getting your hair cut. It was so cute to see her mind working overtime. While there, she was polite and did I say, quiet??!! In the middle of her hair cut, she said, “Excuse me, excuse me, my hair is in my eyes.” LOL She did not like not being able to see around, especially the cartoons that were playing on the little TV in front of her chair.
Kasen asked the hair dresser for pink hair, and thankfully, she did have an alternative. She had some red hair gel and told Kasen that she could make a red streak on either side of her face after her hair was dry. Kasen was thrilled with that and she now calls them her “red strips.” She wouldn’t let us wash her hair last night because she was terrified she would lose her “strips.” LOL And, she wasn’t too happy that Brad washed her hair tonight and it came out. She has already asked that I put them back in tomorrow – yes, we did buy the red hair gel AND glitter spray for her hair. I guess I’m thinking that she’ll get this out of her system before she’s a teenager and wants to dye her hair purple! Really, who am I kidding?! – this girl is going to keep us on our toes every single day of our lives. It’s a good thing we adore her.
Oh yeah, she was none too thrilled with me when we were in the car heading home. She said, “I wanted it SHORT, like Sadie.” *sigh* She really has a mind of her own, knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to say it. She DID tell the hair dresser that she wanted it short, but I think it looks precious just the way it is. She IS happy with it now, thank goodness.
See ya’ later!!
