The First Haircut

“What if they cut it all off? Like at the end of Tangled? I need my long hair!”

“I’m just telling them you need a trim,” I explained. “That’s a little bit of hair.” I held my thumb and index finger a little bit apart. “It’s like this much.”

Natalie gripped her hair. “I need it long like Rapunzel. Or I’ll cry.”

I gritted my teeth. I understood her concern but geez. “They won’t cut too much off.”

We headed to SuperCuts—I know I could have taken advantage of the free haircuts at JC Penney that is going on this month but I didn’t want to wait around for an appointment. At SuperCuts you can just walk in.

“Don’t cut a lot off. I need it long like Rapunzel,” Natalie told the hair stylist seriously.

“Of course,” the hair stylist replied, a little taken aback. She probably had taken a look at Natalie and thought, “She looks sweet!” And then after Natalie spoke she probably thought, “And she’s demanding!”
This was Natalie waiting to get her FIRST hair cut:

Yes. It was her FIRST ONE EVER.

I had never taken her because she always loved her long hair so I didn’t see the point. I only took her now because her ends looked dead and yuck.

She did really well.

The results?

Still long! Like Rapunzel.


  1. She's a gorgeous girl! My youngest wants to be a princess when she grows up, so your Natalie reminds me of her. If only being a princess brought in the cash! :)

  2. Good for her for telling the stylist exactly what she wants! She looks beautiful.

  3. Awww... how cute! Did you cry? ;)

  4. So pretty! And they didn't cut too much off.

  5. Looks great - glad she didn't have to open a can of you know what on the stylist. :-)

  6. It's beautiful! I was forced to start cutting my daughter's hair when she was a little over a year old. She was born with a full head of hair, and then she lost most of it, and it started growing in funny. She had a mullet. Good times. But now we're growing it out like Rapunzel :)

  7. First - your little girl is so cute! Her haircut looks fabulous :D

    Second - I totally had to read that boycott American women comment.. The heck?! I got a good chuckle out of it. Guy sounds pretty ignorant.

  8. And still cute!
    When is dad going to build that tower to lock her in?

  9. Cutie patootie!

    I have the same battle with my girls... both refuse to get their hair trimmed. Sigh.

  10. Wow, that boycott American Women comment is something!

    I always wanted long hair when I was little, but my mom always cut it short!

  11. Looks so cute! And proud!

  12. Love the SPAM comment. *rolling eyes*

    Natalie's hair is perfect princess hair. Tell her she did a good job telling the hairdresser exactly what she wanted. That is always the hardest part for me.

  13. Bella has never had a haircut either! EVER! And her ends are shot!!!! Long like Rapunzel....*sigh*....I hear that too!

    But I'd have to drug her to get it done....

  14. Well, there are some girls that really love long hair, and Natalie is one of them. If you don’t want to cut her hair again because the ends look dead and messed up, start combing her hair from the bottom and slowly move upwards. Don’t comb her hair forcibly because it may lead to breakage or worse.
