Miss Molly has been asking for a haircut "like Emma G's" for a long while. Emma G is a friend in her school class with, you guessed it, a cute little short hairdo. But Molly also asks for braids and ponytails every day. I was reluctant to let her get her locks chopped because I was afraid she'd have haircut regret but she's been insistent and persistent enough that when Great Clips put up their $7.99 haircut sale sign I finally gave in. Molly was thrilled. She's not *quite* as happy as she would have been if the stylist had cut it to the length she actually wanted (just above her shoulders). Molly wanted to donate her hair so the stylist chopped her hair off as a ponytail but botched something up enough that instead of a blunt bob, Molly got some serious stacking in the back. It had to be evened out and the sides were shortened a bit more than expected. It turned out really cute and Molly is happy but it wasn't quite what she expected. Still, she was proud to have a ponytail to donate, her bangs blend into the shorter length well, and it didn't take her long to realize that short is sassy and she owns sassy. So all in all, a success! (But we won't be going back to that stylist any time soon... :D )
I also got my hair trimmed (about 5"). It's barely noticeable visibly but feels good to have the split ends cleaned up!
The girl is incapable of just smiling for a camera. These are just a *few* of the dozens of poses she struck when I pulled the camera out! Sassy, silly stinker.
