A Girls Day of Styling and Profiling

The girls and I got haircuts today. We all were looking a bit shaggy, and were in need of some serious pampering. Nothing too drastic. A little snip here, some texturizing and layering there. As this was Sheridan's first experience in a salon, I decided to forgo taking her to Supercuts, and splurge on a fun girls outing. Anyone read between the lines for the oxymoron here? Me + girls + European salon = mild chaos, AND as a bonus, mom is a moron for attempting this.

Sheridan didn't have as much fun at first as I had expected. She walked in to the salon like she owned the place, but when we took her back to wash her hair (hey for $40 I wasn't about to let them just wet it down with a little spray bottle), she absolutely freaked out. I tried to calm her down, but the more I talked, the more hysterical she became. The stylist assured me she could cut her hair dry... but I refused to let this one go. I wanted my money's worth, and Sheridan was going to get her hair washed. Period. Ten minutes later... and my sanity about shot, her hair was washed and we were on her way to getting a new 'do.

The cut was quick. Sheridan walked in with a mullet, and after a few snippety snips, it was gone. We didn't want to do anything drastic, so the stylist added a few layers so the baby fine hair would grow in thicker, and put a cute little clip in her hair. Does it look any different in the end? No, not really. Maybe a smidge shorter, but not really. She only wears it up in a high ponytail anyway (at her request), so we'll worry about a real 'do when she starts caring more about styling it. She's 3... I think we have time.

Riley's and my haircuts were completely uneventful. Riley had several cut inches off, and also got a graduated cut where it's shorter in the back and longer on the sides. It's so sweet and it frames her face quite nicely.

I had my hair reshaped, trimmed, and blown straight (something I rarely do myself because it takes forever to dry). While I was sitting there for over 30 minutes waiting for her to finish straightening my hair, all I could think about was, "My head is eye level to her boobs, and she isn't wearing a bra." Not a bad view if I was a guy, but I wish I had a magazine instead.

In the end, I got a nice haircut that was worth the wait. Will anyone notice that it was cut? Probably not, as I too wear my hair up and curly at all times. Maybe when I start caring more about styling, I'll get a new 'do too.

They look adorable! Where's your picture? We were robbed! I have curly hair too. I like when my stylist straightens it, but I hardly ever do it at home. 1. I'm not as good at it as she is, and it never looks the same, and 2. it takes FOREVER!

I took my 5 year old to my salon last haircut. I wasn't real happy with how her hair's been looking and I wanted someone who knew a bit more to cut it. Well, she loved the whole experience. I'm afraid there's no going back to the kiddie salon, and at $35 a cut for her, I wasn't thinking of making this a regular thing!

Have a great day. I hope you're starting to adjust.
