Haircut time

Valerie hasn't had a proper haircut since she was 7.  She's 14-1/2 now!  I've been trimming the ends every now and then taking off an inch or so here and there.  She wanted super long hair and basically refused to cut any more than that!

The plan was to cut it before band camp.  It's super hot outside, so she knows having less hair to deal with for band would make things easier.  Then she discovered it was more manageable if we put it in twin french braids, and waffled back and forth about cutting it.  Band starts right around the corner, so it was time to decide. 

The appointment was made....

....  and she said goodbye to five inches.  That's the most she has cut off at once in years.

Honestly, she could have cut a few more inches.  It's still super long.  We then spent three hours getting balayage highlights done. 

Isn't it lovely?!?  It came out so pretty!!  It's natural looking and changes color in the light.  Now if I could only get her to wear it down instead of in the forever ponytail!! 


  1. It's beautiful! I love how natural it looks.

  2. Oh my goodness!
    It is beautiful!
    Looks so healthy too!

  3. Her hair is sooo pretty!
