The Perils of Home Hairdressing...

So I decided to cut Freyja's fringe myself today. How hard can it be?  She only has poker straight and very slow growing hair after all...

Hmmm. 


I got a right shock when I realised just how much I'd lopped off.  At least it is straight.  And Freyja thinks she looks especially cute and is  happy with it, thank goodness. I'm just glad she is 7, and not yet so worried about her fringe being perfect.

I was not brave enough to tackle the length after this.  My mum used to cut all of our hair herself - in the garden, she would literally just lop the ends off mine and my sister's hair, straight across with a pair of kitchen scissors,  and then chop away at my brother's whole head. It always looked fine.  So I thought, anyway...

Aw, at least it means you won't have to worry about doing it again for a while. And it is very straight! I think better a short fringe than a wonky one.

That's brilliant - only ever cut the girls' hair once, never again

Cut my own fringe and can't get over how tricky it is...

the perils of having a fringe - it needs cutting twice/three times as often than the length :( I actually think that very straight hair is the most difficult to cut because it's so v unforgiving (Jacob's hair is dead straight and I never ever tackle the fringe, only tidy it up round his ears). most hairdressers will do you a fringe trim for free, I think, but it is a pain having to take your kids along, just for a five minute job.
