My daughter found her calling as a hairdresser

We know this because she now has first hand experience cutting her own hair. She was alone in her room with scissors and apparently decided it was time for a new look. Thankfully the hairdresser will be able to fit her in tonight to fix it

What, no pictures to share??? I did that, too, plus a bonus load of Vaseline in my hair. My mother was not pleased.

The pictures are being taken now, but they are not really coming out well enough to show her skill.

Ah, welcome to parenthood of a young girl. I know more moms and dads who have been there than those that haven't. My poor SIL has three girls, one down, two to go for this to happen.

My sister cut hers so badly that my mom had to shave her head! They weren't sure she was going to have any hair when she started kindergarten, but thankfully she did! My mom said it actually seemed to grow in thicker, so maybe it was a good thing! She also cut my doll's hair and anything else she got her hands on.

This reminds me of a great scene in the book "Papa's Daughter" (a true story), about a girl (telling the story, as an adult) who loves to cut everything she can get her hands on. She finds a paper and cuts a beautiful deer out of it. She shows it to her parents, proud of her skill. Her father (a minister) wasn't too happy, as it was his sermon that she had cut up!

Well my brother shaved his head at camp one yeah, but that was for money. That kid would do anything for money back then.

I cut my hair at camp years before that though. Must run in the family.

I remember cutting my hair in my teens - not particularly well, had to wear a hat for a long time.
