So, on November 5th, Kevin and I took her to the mall to get her first haircut! Well...kind of her first. She did cut her pigtails off a few months ago, resulting in a 6 inch loss. And she cut her own bangs at least twice this year! But it was her first professional haircut.
Brooklyn also decided that she wanted to donate her hair to Locks of Love. That meant she had to cut a minimum of 10 inches. I never thought I would be the kind of mom who cried when her daughter cut her hair, but it was pretty hard to hold back the tears when all those pretty waves came off!
Although she was very excited to get her hair cut, Brooklyn was also very nervous. So nervous, in fact, that she NEVER moved while she was in the chair. She was PERFECTLY still!
A few big snips and some styling was all it took and then my little Brooklyn looked so grown up!
All the ladies at the salon just loved her and couldn't believe that a 4 year old would want to donate her hair... or that a 4 year old even had enough hair to donate! Here is a video of them cutting off the inches!
And that was that! Now our sweet little girl has a cute short hairdo and we both LOVE it! It has taken tons of time off our morning routine. She doesn't cry whey I brush her hair and bath time is cut in half. The one sad thing is, her curls all but disappeared. She still gets some crazy waves now and then, but her hair is mostly straight. (She is actually pretty happy about that though, it just makes me sad!)
Anyway, here she is in all her cute glory! Isn't she a doll!
