A Cut above the rest
Well, we finally did it. We cut Kayla's hair. It had gotten to the point where it was just so long that it was in the way of everything, and always a battle to brush, fix or wash it. More then that though, I just knew it would make a beautiful wig if we were to donate it. Last week, I sat down with Kayla to try and explain to her what "Locks of Love" was all about. I told her that there were children out there who didn't have beautiful hair of their own and would love to have her hair. I think this concept was a little much for her, because she looked at me like I was a little crazy. After several more attempts to explain this to her, she finally seemed to understand a little more, and agreed to the idea of cutting it. It was when I promised her a big sucker at the end that she began to get VERY excited about it. Go figure....
So, off we went. I'm pretty sure I was more nervous then she was. She did great! It was not only the "big cut" but her first professional hair cut all together! She sat very still and was so patient throughout the whole process. It took a little over 30 minutes to complete because of all the layers she had put in to even out the cut. I was a little shocked with how short it came out, but very happy with the results. We're looking forward to donating her hair again, as "Locks of Love" is a charity that is very close to my heart.
