For quite awhile Maya asked to cut her hair short so we cut it shoulder length (I just typed link instead of length and had to change it. Shoulder link. I'm insane.) and she was happy for a whole week about it. Then I started hearing a constant pleading for shorter shorter shorter. So I took her to a little walk-in place and they all ooh'd and aah'd over her and she loved every single minute. However, we left with it sort of looking bowlish and I just wasn't feelin it. I kept trying to talk myself into it though but later that night Phil said, "So...not sure how I feel about the hair," and I knew for sure something had to be done. So I got out my scissors and cut some layers in the back. It added some volume and just broke up the bowl a bit. Now we love it and she looks adorable!
And now she wants to grow it long. She is my daughter after all.
