From 9 to 15 in the Speed of a Haircut

Louisa has wanted her hair cut shorter all summer long. At one point we had decided on pink highlights (yes, really) but we found out that her school has strict rules on "unnatural haircolors". That nixed the pink highlight idea.
We spend a lot of time watching those cute shows on Disney channel like Hannah Montana and Suite Life of Zack & Cody, so she's always telling me, "I want my hair like that!", and pointing to the different characters. We had decided on something short and layered, so when we got to the haircut place yesterday we looked through some books to get a better idea of what she wanted.
I sat there and watched length after length get cut off. My baby girl's pretty hair!!!
After we were finished we had to go shopping. Louisa spent the whole time looking in every mirror we passed and swishing her new hair back and forth!
She immediately jumped to about 15 years old with just one haircut! Tomorrow school starts, so I'm sure she'll get a lot of attention from her friends. I'm happy with it. Louisa did have a few tears last night as she admitted it was a little shorter than she really wanted. We looked in the mirror and played with it a little. After she saw just how pretty she is she started to feel better.
I just can't get over how much older she looks!

Beautiful both ways! I just got my hair chopped off on Saturday... but I do it all the time. Just remember Louisa, hair grows back - tis better to have tried a new do than to not have tried at all. (okay, so not quite Emily Dickinson! LOL)
