Proud Momma

My LadyBug is at it again!  She's been growing her gorgeous hair out for several years now and this weekend, she had 10" cut off to donate to Locks of Love.  I'm so proud of how determined she was to keep growing it out until it was long enough.  I also love how determined she was to go forward with the cut even though she got a little nervous about the big change it would mean.  It ended up being a bit shorter than she had originally envisioned, but she stuck to her guns when we measured and marked out where it would fall.

Here's some pictures of the process.  And special shout out to my gal, Jen!  She's been cutting my hair now for almost four years and was the stylist that cut LadyBug's hair the first time she donated.



That's a serious head of hair!


10" brought it to just above the green band.
Daddy couldn't watch!



There it is. Look at all those beautiful colors.
The brothers all kept trying to play with it . . . .



Sooo pretty.


The finished look.
Beautiful inside and out.
And I don't even care if that sounds biased.
Or proud. Cuz I am.

That's great! I'm so proud of my girls for donating their 10'' too! I sent them to a really nice salon and they cut it for free. It was a great experience for the girls to go to a place like that, and also have their beautiful black-brown hair donated :)

Your daughter is lucky she had so much left over :) When I had mine cut last summer, I had 2'' of hair all over my head left. Half a year of hair-growing later, it's still shorter than your daughter's hair :)
