I’ve always known that I wanted Hannah to have bangs but because her hair naturally grows in a way that the front is shorter than the rest, she hasn’t needed a haircut. Even in the updated care package pics that I received in September 2009 (2 months before we met) you can see that the hair on top of her head was shorter/less full then on the sides. This pattern has continued which as been part of the reason why we’ve been able to wait so long before her first cut. Here is my little love at 5 1/2 months old. So sweet!!!
Originally I was going to take Hannah to the lady who cuts my hair but then Norma told me about Melonhead and I knew that was where we’d go for sure! I’ve seen friends in the US who go to places like this so I was super excited when a children’s hair centre was located so close to home! What a great place to have your child’s hair cut.
Hannah was excited to go even though I’m not sure she really understood what she meant when she kept saying, ‘Hannah. Haircut!’ We walked in the door and she was sold!
When her name was called we chose the pink car and Hannah had fun ‘driving’ it during much of her haircut.
I was so proud of Hannah!! She didn’t have one single second of hesitation, was not upset and truly enjoyed the whole thing! I have a feeling that with the cool car to ride plus ‘Nemo’ playing on a TV above, she was just having a great time and not really paying any attention to what was happening. (Hopefully that will bode well for her not finding scissors and copying, deciding to cut her own hair. I moved all the scissors out of reach a long time ago but have a feeling with Hannah’s personality this is just a matter of time. We’ll see!)
Bangs created. I was happier with the length before they were textured but I know they’ll grow so I’m not concerned in the least.
My biggest desires for her bangs were that they be light and wispy and not too wide and the young gal captured this perfectly! I was convinced Hannah would age before my eyes when I got her hair cut but in this particular pic I think it’s the opposite and it reminds me of many of her baby pics.
Since this was Hannah’s first haircut the store creates a special package for the parents. This was the girls working hard to get a good picture for Hannah’s memory package.
After Hannah was all finished she was in no hurry to leave. It was close to the end of the day so the car was not needed so they handed Hannah the bubbles and we were invited to stay. (They’re really cool bubbles too in that they don’t spill. They sold them there and since she had done so well having her hair cut it was easy to decide to purchase one for her as a treat!) Here she is just hanging out after her cut.
I was hoping Hannah would just get a small trim and tidy up the ends of her hair and that’s exactly what she did! I am so happy with her cute new look and I really don’t think it changed her look much at all. Yay!
