Hair Affair

The Thursday before our Cape Cod sojourn, Mr. M, our stylist, came to the house for some vacation trims.

And I decided to chop Bun’s hair off.

I had thought that DearDR would kill me — I think I’ve mentioned that I had promised him our girls would have long hair.

But Bun’s hair was this indeterminate length, and it was always in her face.

So I asked Mr. M to do a chin-length bob.

And honestly, it really suits Bun’s style. It seems weird to say that about a 2-year-old, but it’s true.

It’s short and sassy, just like her.

Now I would dearly love to do that to Monkey’s hair, too. But DearDR has ruled a firm “NO” on that, and he would kill me if I decided to do it on my own.

So I guess I’ll just have more pictures like this to show off.

I had meant to post about this — Bun’s hair — and about the loss of my own hair heroine before we left for vacation. It all was related somehow. Anyhoo, Farrah Fawcett was the shining example of beauty when I was a little girl. And when I grew up, she became an example of courage and bravery, and the willingness to fight in the face of pain. RIP, Farrah.

  1. It looks wonderful!!

    Also, my dad had a firm no hair-cutting rule. I will admit that I hated it. He still prefers my hair long when, in all reality, a medium-short length suits my face shape better. Anyway, I have a husband who doesn’t care what length it is or what color it is. Grays allowed as well. 😉

    Welcome back! Missed you!

    • Thank you!

      I had long, straight hair as a little girl, and wore bangs until 8th grade. Then I started reading YM — and saw a short haircut I realized would suit me much better. When I said to my mom, “Would you mind if I got this haircut?” I saw her heart break a little bit, but she agreed. I’ve worn my hair short since then. I’m growing it out now, to maybe shoulder length — we’ll see. If I don’t lose patience with it first.

      I wish we hadn’t done bangs on Monkey, but if she wants to grow them out eventually, that’ll be on her (so, years away, I would think). And I think I’ll keep Bun in a bob until she can decide what she wants to do.

      Thanks for the comment! It’s good to be back, although it was a great trip, too.
