Beauty School Dropout
I've gotten tired of the children's haircut game. This is how it's played: you spend $20 for a decent kid's cut and hope that particular stylist can get the cowlick right or you spend half that at a Great Clips or such place, cross your fingers and spend $20 to get it fixed afterward.
Several of my friends do their kid's hair--and after all, most people my age didn't go to a fancy schmancy salon till we were older anyway. So I bought a set of clippers, read the directions, asked my friend Jenn for advice and cut the boy's hair.
The above and below pictures are "Before".
"After" with a number 4 guide. Wonder if they have a 10 guide? The boy loves it! Thank God! His poor little head itches all the time due to extremely dry skin so this should help.
My husband said if he had done this, I would have killed him--and he's right.
Yeah, I really messed up the back.
Thankfully, he's 4 1/2 and doesn't really care that his mom can't cut hair. I am going to a friend's house next week to have her show me how to use the clippers properly and to get his cut fixed.
My husband will not let me near him
The baby is going to the salon.
