Happy Hack Job

I've been cutting boys hair for years, but last week I decided to try my hand at a girl's  cut. A number of years ago I'd had a lesson from a hairdresser, and since I was getting a trim myself in a few days, I figured I could always get it fixed.
It's cuter than in these pictures that I took right afterwards, because it naturally curls under.
It was a rather traumatic hour, so I'm not sure if I'll try it again. Not traumatic because I don't like the result, but because I still have no idea how I got there!
I had intended to do a straight cut that was about two inches longer. I ended up with a U-cut at shoulder level! Good thing she's so cute - it's hard to mess Alaina up!
Didn't cut his hair, but I know you guys want to see him, right? Happy Tuesday!

Looks cute. It is pretty hard to mess up that kind of cut. But with little ones I always preferred to have someone else present to help with distractions. :)

She looks so grown up with the new do! Oh and baby James is pretty cute too.
