Korri's terrible at brushing her hair or having it brushed. It tangles easily and she never wants it in a ponytail, which would help keep it from getting so tangled. Some times I wonder if she will end up with dreadlocks, it gets so bad.
But, she wanted to have her hair up for her dance recital, so we both agreed that we would keep it long until her recital and cut if after. I think you'll agree that it looked super cute for the recital:
But this morning, we decided today was the day. I made an appointment at Kid's Hair in Maple Grove, something she's never been able to do before, and off we went. She was as still as a statue (it helped they were playing one of her favorite movies; How to Train Your Dragon 2).
Before and after:
It is basically the same cut she did last spring but a little shorter (her request, not mine!). I love it and think it fits her personality...cute with a little sass! And I think because I had short hair a lot as a kid, I feel like she looks more like me than ever.
And now we'll probably have to start letting it grow out for her recital next year, but it will be cute (and easy to brush) as it grows!
