What possessed me to do what I have just done? I have no idea. But I did it none the less and after I had finally finished, it all seems okay… Ish.
I cut my children’s hair! I have always said I would never cut my kids hair… I wouldn’t even cut my own…Simply because I don’t trust myself… I’m not a hairdresser and I have no idea what I am doing.
But there I was just hacking away…And that’s what It felt like … all this hair was flying around us regardless of the towel that was draped around them… And all because it started off with wanting to trim my daughters fringe as the hair at the front was getting so long it went past her nose and she kept trying to blow it out of her little face. So I asked if she wanted me to trim it and my daughter said yes….
Yes because a 3 year old knows what she is doing when she allows her mummy who has never tried to trim hair before to trim her hair…. On a spontaneous whim… Against all common sense… But did it start with the fringe…No. Because for some reason I went into hair dresser mode and started at the back…. I didn’t need to start at the back. What the hell was I doing!?
I trimmed the back but was it easy? No… 3 year olds don’t sit still for long and every time I combed a bit of hair she sat still and as soon as I went to snip with the scissors she moved! After I did the back and went to trim the front she was just smiling at me and then laughed which meant she was wriggling all over the place…
But success I managed to cut her hair… Although I was only using household scissors the trim wasn’t so uneven… But trying to cut my sons hair with them was a different matter… His hair is thicker and I only needed to trim his fringe also. When I did Trim the fringe It looked like the sides of his hair which are usually graded with clippers were a bit poofy at this point so I asked if I should trim down the sides the best I can.
I ended up giving him freaking layers! What am I doing!? I tried again and again and thus the hacking went on until I managed to feel happy about it, then I had to do the same to the other side… That also wasn’t easy especially since my son also seemed to move his head every time I went to snip….
Did it look even? Did it look symmetrical? I had a feeling I should have stopped after the fringe trim… But I figured I have already gone this far I might as well try and fix what damage I had done… Which in the end I thought it was okay…But my son really liked it and that’s all that matters as it is his hair.
Will I do it again? Probably not. Am I covered in hair? Unbelievably so. Was I a woman possessed? I think so. Still can’t get my head around why I would want to do that… It was really risky because it could have turned out awful…
I have told my son I would like to spike his hair tomorrow… I’m thinking it would help give the effect I wanted rather than the odd layer poofing out and looking really uneven… But as I said he is happy with it…
It will have to do till I can get his hair cut professionally. Do you know what else I think was just so silly? Cutting their hair after their bath. Why would I even do that? Now they need to be rewashed because they have hair all over them… More so me and my son but I am next to have a bath so I’ll be fine.
Has anyone done this?
Thanks for reading 🙂
