Amelia’s first haircut!

Believe it or not, My middle child has never had her hair cut, so we decided to take the opportunity of the summer holidays to book up an appointment and have something done about her long hair.

As you can see, the tips of her hair almost settle at her bottom! This is five years worth of growth, we decided to go to Pamper Box which is a local salon, and its always great to support local stores.



She sat so wonderfully, letting Catherine cut away at her hair, I feel super proud that she didn’t kick up a fuss and moved her head about when she was told as she does have a habit of being a bit grumpy when told to move haha.



And there is the cut, a huge difference, she honestly looks like a completely different child now, and she likes it, I asked for it to be long enough to tie up when she goes back to school, as we all know about those little creatures that live in children’s hair are a constant worry but short enough that its a big difference and should cause her hair to thicken up.

I am mildly sad about it, we had just learnt how to do a fishtail braid, but I am excited to learn some wonderful short hair styles for her.

They even let me keep the bits that was cut off… for voodoo of course..

    5 years?! Wow. My son is so good when we get his hair cut, but he knows the lady so that might help. Glad she likes it, little cutie xx

      Yeah her hair didn’t grow for the longest time, when it finally did I let it go as long as we could get it

    I’m so jealous of her beautiful hair- even her shorter haircut looks long!!

    Wow you had a lot taken off! – that’s still long enough to fish tail though! – split it and do two plaits 🙂 x
