Lilly’s first haircut!

Today was a big day for our little lady. No matter how many milestones we reach, they always feel major. Today Lilly got her first official haircut!

I say official because we have had some minor ones. I have trimmed up her bangs to keep them out of her eyes. And of course, there was that time she cut her own hair…resulting in a worse mullet than she already had…

Heading to the salon, she said she was a bit scared. We mentioned that she wasn’t scared when she cut her own hair, which she agreed was a good point. Dad was getting his hair cut today too, so that helped ease the nerves.

Getting started!

Her and I spent some time looking at pictures on Pinterest and agreed some straight across bangs would look good. Although this was definitely a listen to the stylist kind of cut. Lilly’s hair has grown in pretty funky up until now, so getting some direction on how to train it was key.

The end result looks great. She still has a ways to go in terms of getting her hair to come in a bit more, but now we finally know what to do with it ;)

All done. She has properly defined bangs!

I will add that it’s pretty ideal that she doesn’t have the hair I did at her age. I remember what it was like to deal with this mess…

So thick. So long. So many curls.
