Cutting of one's own hair

Ok be honest, how many of you did this when you were kids? I know I did, and just about all of my siblings as well. It seems to be a rite of passage in my family. My youngest sister (4) just up and chopped off all of her beautiful curls, and I am now only dreading what it must look like. Eeeek! I love my kids, but sheesh the silly things they do!
Going out with my company to a new bar tonight, should be entertaining:D

Two of my three did that at about that age. By the time the third one came along we were MUCH more careful about leaving scissors out!!!!

Hope you have a great time tonight!

Dear Sarge,
Nah, we were too vain! I love my hair! I am the only one who is allowed to touch it. I have learned that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. My hair is below my arse, so when I want a trim, I MEAN A TRIM! I don't believe they teach this in beauty school, however. Not from past experiences. So, no. I do my own, and it comes out pretty good, if I do say so myself. ROFL See, I told you we were vain. Have a great time tonight.

One of my favorite stories is when my 4 year old brothers decided to cut my sister's and my waist length hair -- they invented the "pixie" haircut!

Liz you were the only girls in the family that never cut her own or anyone elses hair! I think that may have had to do with never seeing it done so the idea that you might cut a girl's hair never crossed your mind LOL

For the record the 4 yr old in question had to do a bit of climbing to get to those siccors seem no matter how well I hide them one of the older kids will get careless and leave them in sight or reach sigh...

Oh well it does look cute though I had some trouble recognizing my own kid at the library that afternoon LOLOL

Diff Story here - I've always cut my own hair and did quite well, but now that I am turning grey, my hair is not cooperating & it's not what I'm used to. I have always been an office worker but knew how to cut hair & for some reason improved others very well -except mine Now. Turning grey is a whole other Head-Set matter, if ya know what I mean. No matter what I do or try, I'm looking like bozo or a medium split in the middle 70's haircut again. Help ! I really can only afford myself - my hair is still healthy & in good condition. I just can't find the right style for this curly-now somewhat wavy mop of mine for a purely square head !!!
