My life just got significantly easier...

So, once upon a time there was a little girl who was born with a gorgeous set of brown locks. Shiny, glossy and just a touch curly, everyone loved her hair.

Except for her mother. Each day was a battle that included an entire bottle of detangler slash Windex, much weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth, and a daily ponytail. The hair was a magnet for food particles, paint, syrup and dirt, and finally the mom couldn't take it anymore.

She marched that little girl to the hairdresser and had six inches of hair hacked off. The little girl was happy, the mom was happy, and the Windex detangler is no more.

A before shot. Very lovely, but her hair was deceiving. It only LOOKED pretty and lovely. It was secretly the devil.

A snip snip here and a snip snip there yielded.....


Ohhh yeah, I love those short locks. So easy to deal with. WHY did I not do this earlier??

Work it homegirl!

In all seriousness I am sooo happy with the results. Addison loooves it and has spent all day showing off. Her best friend has a similar haircut and she's been bugging me for the same one forever. The only problem is that it makes her look grown up. I SUPPOSED four is a valid time to start growing up, but I wish she'd wait until she was 18 or something.
