Beauty School Dropout

I learned this weekend that I should stick to teaching and leave any future hair cuts to the experts. My babies don't get much hair until about the age of one. Camden's hair grew in nicely, but Easton has had some funky hair stuff going on. I call it his "old man hair" because it sticks up in tufts, grows well in spots but not in others, and is thin and wispy. For weeks I have wanted to even it out, to somehow make it look better, but left it alone hoping it would get better in time. On Friday night, I decided that was it. I was going to trim up the super long stuff over his ears and on top of his head. One minor detail - I've never done it before.

I asked Mark to grab me his razor. I thought I would just shave a little off the sides and top and call it good. I grabbed the razors and started in the middle of Easton's head. After
the first stroke, I noticed my mistake. I had no guard to prevent me from getting too close. So now, with huge bald chucks in the middle of his head, it became pretty obvious that all his hair was going to have to come off to correct my mistake. I took a deep breath and set to work. In about five minutes, Easton was completely bald! It's a good thing he has a good head shape for a bald hair cut. I only hope it will grow in looking better than it did before.

Easton pre hair cut. See how weird and tufty his hair was growing?
I think he knew what was coming.
Easton post hair cut.
Bald heads are really good for smearing chocolate on. Yum!

CUTE! In asia, they have a tradition of shaving the baby's heads, and the hair usually grows back nice and full :)

Can I chuckle if I admit that I'm laughing at myself more than anything? I did the very same thing to my son. I had seen my mom cut hair thousands of times. (she was a beautician). My son desperately needed a haircut but my parents lived hours away and I was too cheap to take him to a barber. After all those years watching her use the electric razor, certainly I could copy her technique, right? HAH! My poor son had to go to school bald (he cried, of course.) Guess who no longer has an electric razor in her household? For some reason, my mom took the extra clippers that she had left with me back home again. :)

I'm with the others, though. I think he looks absolutely adorable with his new hair cut.
