Marietta's hair wasn't all that long, she had been growing it for just over a year, so although a change, it's not as drastic as Rebecca's. Rebecca has been growing her hair since she was three years old. She had long, thick, wavy, beautiful hair (can you hear a hint of jealousy :) But it was ALWAYS full of knots. I could brush it out (after much complaing, whining and crying) and ten minutes later it's be loaded with knots. So we finally decided it was time to try it short and see if that worked better ... especially with summer coming up. They've both wanted it cut for several months now but we were waiting until after Val's wedding ... so today we finally got around to it.Rebecca's hair was long enough that we were able to donate it to Cancer Society. So we bundled up 9.5inches of it into a braid,chopped it all off and sealed it in a ziploc bag ... tomorrow we will mail it off.
Both girls are quite happy with their new look. We were a little apprehensive of chopping Rebecca's hair, but really like how it looks and hope that she finds it easier to manage this way. I must admit that even though I look forward to not having to battle hair each morning, I will miss the opportunity to try new things and fancy them up a bit
Here's pictures from the other day - my last fancy hair attempt on Rebeeca
