First Haircut!

You read that right...the girls got their first haircut today....about 1.5 weeks shy of turning TWO! I didn't mean to hold out so long, but honestly, Anna and Ava's hair grew out so nice I kept thinking Alexis' would catch up. It didn't prove to be so much the case. Alexis' hair instead grew in the back, but not the sides so it ended up being a slight mullet. Oops! Sorry Alexis!

Here are a few Before and After pictures....although, I need to take more pics this week so you can see they actually did get it cut!

Anna before:
Pretty long and the curliest of the 3 girls.

Anna During:
Still long, still bouncy curls, but she didn't enjoy the hair cutting experience....AT ALL!
I don't have after pics since she was still crying and I held her the entire time Alexis was getting hers cut. Anna's honestly looks the least different to me. The stylist just evened it up and gave it a nice trim all over. I thought she would be the calmest, so I had her go first. That plan didn't work out so well. Poor Anna! She did let the stylist put in a pony tail though, so her hair is pulled back in the second pic.

Ava Before:
The longest and straightest of the 3. Down almost to the middle of her back!

Ava During:
She only cried once and was pretty happy as long as she could hold a PINK comb and have a PINK apron on. the girl is obsessed with pink and I've found how to use it to my advantage. :) She's holding on to the pink comb underneath there instead of holding onto the pony. :)

Ava After:
The stylist was even able to put 2 braids in her hair...another first!
She took about 4+ inches off the length and evened it up all around. It doesn't look that much shorter here, but it definitely is nicer and more healthy...believe me!

Alexis Before:
The shortest and most fine hair of the 3. In need of a trim!

Alexis during:
She didn't cry once and actually asked to go next (after Anna was done). She smiled nearly the entire time and let the stylist do what she needed to do. Thank goodness too, since she is the one that really NEEDED this haircut! She got cute little girl bangs and a fun little "bob cut" to fit her spunky personality! She was a Champ!

Alexis After:
This is the best I have of after the cut of Alexis so far. The girls were so busy playing on the slide at the salon and their hair got all static-y and she was practically sweating she was having such a great time. But look at those sweet little bangs! :)

Even though Jeff was leery of getting the girls' hair cut and he didn't want me to go super short with their cuts, he was pleasantly surprised with how good they all looked and he especially liked Alexis' new style!

Oh, how neat! I love all the pics! I can't believe Alexis has a little style now, soooo sweet! I really can't wait to see a pic of the back of her do. The girls are all so pretty! And I am cracking up about Ava's pink obsession! :o) So girly. Just an FYI - we are working out a plan to come down in March or April, we will have to figure out some time to get together! :o)

Hi Marie! It's Laura Laura Denlinger. I stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say hello. I hope all is well in Ohio. I am a hall coordinator at the University of Missouri but I sure do miss you all at OSU!

The girls are adorable. They're so grown up. Take care!
