I have a confession to make. I am terrible at doing my girls' hair (this is probably not coming as a big shock to any of you). I am not good with ribbons, braiding or curling and I have no clue about styling. I can barely get the hair-dryer to work. To make matters worse, this is what I get when I try to fix their hair. Major screams, no matter how much detangler I use!
I guess because their heads were always shaved in the orphanage, I felt like I shouldn't cut their hair. Kind of like a badge of honor.
But after a particularly loud morning of trying to make everyone look beautiful, I was done. Get out the scissors girls, here I come!
I am always amazed at how Francesca can stop crying at will. Little faker.
Do you think that I had a plan at this point? Nope. Luckily, Francesca and Victoria have kind of curly hair so it was easy for me to hide my mistakes.
Catherine wanted in on the action too. She still insists on growing her bangs out though.
Yes, I am using school scissors. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
I think Francesca was a bit stunned by the outcome.
Can you believe how long Victoria's hair has gotten? She was almost bald when we first adopted her. The back of her head still gets tangled, even in the day, no matter what I put on it. Any ideas?
Victoria was pretty much of a nightmare to shear. She kept flipping her head all around. She is lucky that she still has any hair left.
I don't think it looks too bad? Right?
Memories. Can you guess which hair belongs to which child?
Everyone felt so free that they all started dancing. Anastasia is still growing out her hair for "Locks of Love". She recently discovered conditioner and she is a changed woman.
Their hair has been much easier to brush, but I get the feeling they are plotting to get back at me. Look at that face!
