heidi's haircuttin' haven

doesn't it seem like the hair salon with the goofiest name is the hair salon that should be most avoided? too bad reagan doesn't have that option. there is no chez heidi salon in this bathroom. but thanks to fantastic enrichment night lesson, i do have the skills to do a VERY basic boys haircut. reagan had begun to resemble shaggy from scooby do and i was feeling like i needed to drive the mystery machine around town and pass out scooby snacks. so a haircut was in order. zoinks!

shaggy, the uncompliant client




the back view. luckily, reagan doesn't have normal hair, he has cat fur. thin, fuzzy and completely unmanageable.

the bribe. i told reagan he could eat as many cookies as he wanted if i could just cut his hair.


the big reveal: a full tummy, a bit itchy...

and pants-free, of course,

but happy.

Heidi,

You have awesome hair cutting skills. I am impressed and loved all of Reagan facial expressions. He sort of looks like Shaggy in the picturs:)

Great haircut Heidi - now for your next trick: "Heidi will now attempt to cut a 3 year old girls hair . . .STRAIGHT!" Yea, I'm not attempting this. I have visions of me cutting it at an angle and having to fix it until her hair is up to her eyeballs! That's exactly why we took a fieldtrip to the mall last Friday to Mastercuts!

Zoinks! Impressive! Matt and I tag team cutting the boys' hair. He cuts, I bribe.
They all do pretty good now.
Great job!

OK, those pictures had me laughing out loud, and then the bribe. I'm still laughing as I'm writing this. And then I'm laughing more as I read Heather's comment about her bullcut. I actually have tears in my eyes. Great post.

great job Heidi! I wish our enrichment would teach things like that!

I love Reagan's squinty smiles!

haha... I love the "cat fur" description. good job on the haircut! i remember Sis. David teaching us how to cut boys' hair in Tuscaloosa, but that was several years ago, and I certainly haven't been practicing. We have yet to cut Taylor's hair. I kind of want to just let it grow out and see what it does. Unfortunately, she doesn't like for me to play with it to put it in pigtails or possibly a ponytail.
