Here's the front picutre - again, just about the more horrible picture of myself that there ever was.
Here's the front view of the after view. She didn't style it at all. I'm sure once I mess around with it and fix it a bit my hair will look so cute.
Here's the back view. She took so much hair off - I think about 9 inches. But I love it. My hair grows so quickly though - it will be long again before I know it.
Gracelin loved my new hair. She told me that I looked prettier than she ever thought I could - she didn't even think I was her mommy. She decided that she wanted to get her hair cut too. She's only ever had one hair cut in her entire life, and that was almost 18 months ago. Her hair was really long and in desperate need of cutting. But, since we're poor right now, and couldn't justify paying for a hair cut, we decided that we'd donate her hair. Great Clips will cut your hair for free if you donate to Locks of Love - but it takes a minimum donation of 10 inches to do that. Gracelin didn't care though - she loved the thought that her hair was going to help a little girl who didn't have any hair of her own.
So, off we went.
Here's the before pics:
And here's the after pics. I really wish I'd taken a camera to the salon, because G was oh-so cute. There was a man in there who was flirting with her, calling her a princess and such, and she was eating it all up. We decided to do a low-maintenance A-line cut, and it really suits her face shape. She's gorgous. After her cut, she had to call Aunt Jen, Grandma and Daddy to tell them she had a secret for them. She wanted to wait and tell them how cute she was, but couldn't help but blurt it out on the phone. She told Grandma that she looked like a 6-year-old!
The front view - so sophisticated!
Here's the back view. She loves how it feels, and keeps touching her hair.
This one is just for cuteness - aren't my girls precious!
