So Bodhi’s hair has been getting long for a little while now, hanging over his eyes and his ears. It was a little wispy at the ends but very blonde and neither me nor my husband really wanted to have it cut but it was getting to the point where he couldn’t see out.
I managed to get an appointment for both Charley and Bodhi today. I’d decided that I’d say to the hairdresser I only wanted the front cut and be firm about this, as they always want to snip a bit more off.
Charley sat in her seat first happily and was as good as gold.
With Bodhi in his seat I said to the hairdresser that I only wanted the front cut. So she sort of nodded at me, saying that she could see he had a bit of surfer, cool dude look going on to go with his name. Ok, well whatever but I just love his blonde hair, his baby hair that has curly bits and I don’t won’t it short! She said about cutting some of the back so that it grew in a certain way. What? NO? Did I say this though when she started cutting it, did I heck!
As it was, as soon as she started cutting, Bodhi started crying (obviously didn’t want his hair cut either!) so I was trying to comfort him and amuse him while she was cutting away.
He was soon calm and ok in the seat, looking serious but not crying, so at least I was happy about that.
Charley’s cut went well and she had a gorgeous Elsa plait put in as well as sparkles, I could never do this at home.
Bodhi’s hair though, well I’m still not quite sure. I’m hoping once we’ve washed it at home (and he’s rubbed some food in it) it will look a little messier and less conformist! It was still a bit damp when we left the hairdressers so it was difficult to see what it looked like. At my mum and dads later though it looked very neat and tidy! Next time I might give it a trim at home?
His Granny will be very pleased though.
Do you take your children to the hairdressers or do you do it yourself? Are you firm with the hairdresser about what you want them to do?
