Before (just look at those long gorgeous locks!):
The cut - YIKES!
Examining Mom's work:
A little silliness (gosh, what I wouldn't give for lashes like that!):
A new do, an old ponytail and a little sass (I'm not sure where she learned the kissy face from...):
There is a good 6 1/2 inches in that ponytail and it would've easily been 8 1/2 except I wanted to give myself a cushion in case I needed to even things up, which I did. I can't believe her hair was so long, and now it's gone! At least it will grow! And it looks so nice & even now. But it's taking me some getting used to. Everytime I come around the corner or catch her out of the corner of my eye, it throws me off for a second and I have to remind myself that we cut it off.
