Who wears SHORT what?

Jaeden's hair is usually braided one way or another everyday for school. With
recess and P.E. and it still being warm outside it's just easier this way.
But, this is usually how she comes home too. Not so cute, but still adorable!
Notice how THICK each braid is though? I know, this girl has rediculously
THICK hair which is really hard for her at 7, to manage herself. So, she has been BEGGING
me to cut it. I've been hesitant because in six weks she'll be getting Baptized and it will be
so easy to do for her dad to have it in braids especially considering the amount to deal with.
My arguement wasn't winning. Dad, voted to let her cut it so...
Tonight we cut it!!


We unbraided......
We straightened.......


and then we CUT, and CUT, and CUT.....


and then we THINNED, and THINNED, and THINNED....



and then, the STACKING began!!!




I added some side layers to blend it together...



After a shower and a styling, I think she likes it!!!





I must say it's really ALOT easier on the both of us and she still is
STINKIN cute!!! Gotta love her hair!!

Cute hair cut!!! I love that style. I actually have an appointment on Wed. to do the same thing with my hair. I've had it cut like that a couple of times and absolutely love it. It is so easy to do everyday, and I really want it that way again. I didn't know you could cut hair- you did a great job. Is that what you do for a living or just a side talent?

Too Cute. It looks like a completely different person.

Thank you everyone for your comments! Jaeden is LOVING it!! Although, I'm flattered I don't do this for a living! Just out of desperation with 6 kids to pay anyone that bill monthly the upkeep on my kids hair!! Epspecially 5 boys (4 and a husband)!

Thank you!
Jana

Have you had traning or is that just natural talent. You did a great job. I have tried to do my daughters hair it never works very well. I would not dare to try to cut that style. I can mostly fake the boys haircuts. Though my husband still prefers to pay for his-I'm to slow.

What a beautiful girl and talented mother! I saw the new "do" in passing on Sunday, but the pictures close up show just how cute it is. Great work.

ecuakim said...

Yeah, I have to agree that you did an amazing job Jana!!! I'm so impressed. But of course, when it comes to you, when I am not impressed! :)

Christine said...

Cute! I actually had Emily's hair cut the exact same way not too long ago. It's a fun haircut! Great job!

Oh, she is so beautiful! I haven't blogged this yet (been on hiatus, remember?) but Mayzie is the same way. Her hair was down to her bottom and we were always worried that it would get in the toilet when she did her business. Not joking! Our long term agreement has been that she would cut it after her baptism (next month), but this month when she accompanied her Dad and Nevan to Great Clips, she just hopped up in the chair and got it chopped without me! They cut her hair for free because she told them it was for Locks for Love. :) These girls must be just days or weeks apart, huh?

George and Joanna said...

Annalisa and Jacob said...

You may not be a professional but it looks like it! Great job! We have a 3 year old who could use you and she hold's really still! :)

Michelle said...

Oh my gosh Jana. I didn't realize YOU had cut Jaedens hair. It's incredible!! Next time I want my hair cut, can I pay you to do it instead? It's really good looking!!
