I need some hair advice. I don't know whether I should let Annabeth's hair grow out like it is or if I should go ahead and have it cut so that it will grow out nicely. And by nicely I mean not like a mullet. Or will it not make any difference? Do little girls have to have mullet hair before it gets cute? I need some wisdom.
Right now, her hair is starting to be thicker on top than it is on the sides. In the back, the bald spot has filled in 95% (I'm so mathematical!) and the hair is starting to get long on her neck. I'm inclined to cut it, but I wanted to ask you all first.
I waited way too long to have Jackson's hair cut for the first time and I regret it every time I see his pictures. I've sworn I wouldn't have an emotional attachment to Annabeth's hair such that I allow it to look bad because I'm waiting for some imaginary phase when one is supposed to cut their child's hair.
With that said, I hate taking Jackson to get his hair cut. We always get it cut super short and then let it grow out as long as we can stand it before we take him again. If it looks bad, you can know that Curtis and I are waiting until the other one gives in and takes him. I actually like it longer, but it doesn't stay cute throughout the day. He has thick hair and it gets poofy as the hours pass. I think it actually looks best when he's sweaty.
As for my hair? My roots are hideous. I'm getting them done on Thursday and it cannot come soon enough. Also, I've got a new part in my hair. I did not think it was possible to train it to part differently after so many years, but lo, it was! I was inspired by Making Over America with Trinny and Susannah to do it. I really like it, even though when I look closely at my part, I remind myself of a gremlin. The row of spiky hairs is almost comical. Thank you, baby bangs regrowth.
That is all for now. Please, if you have any experience with the delicate subject of baby girls and their hair, please take a moment to give me your advice.
