First Haircut!

Well, it's not exactly her first haircut. I've trimmed it in the past, but nothing like this. On this day she had a shampoo, cut, and style, and she loved every minute of it!

For support she had her best friends, Mari & Shani, mommy,and not pictured, her Titi's, Raine &JoJo.

First she had her hair washed. I think she really enjoyed it, her eyes were closed the entire time. Since she is so tiny, they had chair cushions under her, to keep her in place. I don't know how much they really helped though, she was sliding everywhere.
Mari and Shani were just fascinated with the big black bowl they were washing her hair in.

Then the moment I had been dreading all morning.....
THEY STARTED CUTTING HER HAIR!!! I seriously thought I was going to cry, but I was able to hold myself together so I could capture every minute of it, literally.
She was such a brave girl. For a girl who never had her hair done, she sat so patient, tilted her head, sat up straight. I was so proud of her.
After everything was done, as you can see in the last picture, she was in love with her new hair. She wouldn't stop looking in the mirror, or swinging around.
Even now, four days later, she won't stop talking about how much she loves her hair!
