Try as I might, I can't seem to keep Emma's stick-straight, fine hair trimmed perfectly. It always looks a bit mangy when I am done with it. And Mandy's? Oh, heavens. Chasing after an almost 2 year old Owen Wilson look-alike with a pair scissors isn't my idea of a good time. I found out that my hair stylist cuts her client's kids' hair for $1 per year and I thought, "Why am I even attempting this?"
I took both the girls in for trims. All the way there Emma was sure she didn't like this idea, but then I told her she would be like a princess and she changed her tune.
Emma is all for anything that makes her a princess and she was eating up this pampering experience... the chair, the cape, the clips, oh my!
While I wrestled Mandy to the ground and changed an incredibly dirty diaper, Emma got extra special care and got her hair curled and "parkies", aka sparkles.
She even gave my stylist, Trisha, a hug when she finished. Emma looked like a princess indeed.
Mandy was badly in need of a trim. I let her bangs go, thinking I could get her to keep clips in her hair. It is such a struggle! She really doesn't like "pretties" in her hair. Could she be more different than her sister?
Trisha had about 2 minutes to work her magic on Mandy. She should really charge more than $1, but I'm not complaining.
With the cropped bangs, the baby disappeared and a little girl sat in her place, full of mischief and spunk.
My 2 beauties! Best $5 I ever spent.
