Makeover... Baby Addition

Up until now Baby has not been a fan of haircuts. For an entire year the only way I could trim her bangs was if she fell asleep in the car, strapped into her carseat (and that did not make for a very even trim). Then one day a few months ago she woke up mid trim and, well, she never let me near her again. Hence the long bangs in the eyes look she's been sporting since last winter.

On a lark I asked the girls if tonight was Haircut Night and Baby joyously yell that it was. And then she sat (mostly still) while I cut away. Then she'd get down from her stool run to the bathroom to check it out, return and ask for more. Mr F and I were flabbergasted. And more than a little afraid that half way through she'd freak... and... well... look like a freak. But, as always, that girl knew what she wanted, and she made it through till the end.

Before:
(Just kidding... and, NO, it was not cold that day)



After:


(don't mind her homemade double arm cat toys!)

I'm glad you explained the cat toys. They looked a little ominous.

How in the hell did you get her hair cut so straight?

So cute! Is there anything you can't do? My haircuts never look that good!

Thanks guys!
In full disclosure, there is a reason I did not post an up close picture ;)
She was one wiggly worm and I was just trying to be as fast as possible.
I'm usually much better with Kid's hair. Although the shorter style is harder and shows every mistake. Kid's length allows me more to work with when things take a turn for wonky.
I used to get my haircut at a really high end place in NYC... They took 2 hours to just cut my hair. Now I just try to copy how they did it... usually it works out.
