Yup, she’s 2 1/2 and has never had a haircut! Being a girl has it’s advantages and one of them was not having to get haircuts in the first year and again every couple of months. By now Georgia’s hair is long, and falls way past her shoulders, but was starting to form a ‘V’ in the back bc it hadn’t ever been cut.
For weeks we had debated taking her to the salon I go to and paying quite a bit for a small trim or just taking her to a place for a $7.99 cut. Ultimately, we wanted it to be a good cut and knew it’d be a better experience if we went to a nice salon, so after I got my hair cut last week, it was Georgia’s turn.
She looked at us a little funny when Cortney – a friend of ours and my hair stylist – put the cape on her. Then, she had trouble figuring out how to get the fruit snacks we’d bribed her with to her mouth. She thought the cape was like a shirt and kept looking for the arm hole to put her hand through so she could eat the fruit snack, which obviously didn’t work. I showed her how to reach her arm out from under the cape but after a few tries, she still wasn’t getting it. It was adorable watching her concentrate so hard to do something we think is so easy! In the end, I just kept helping her. Maybe by her next cut she’ll figure that part out!
We didn’t cut much off of her hair, just cleaned up the ends and the back. She also got some layers for oompf.
The most hilarious part of the whole thing was her reaction when her hair was finished. It had been flat ironed, then cut, and some product put in it and it was sooooo soft. Georgia couldn’t stop touching it! Since Georgia is normally a girl who could care less about hair, this was pretty funny!
We went out to dinner afterward to celebrate the milestone (silly, I know), and also because by then it was late and I didn’t want to go home and cook. As soon as we sat down at our table, Georgia must have remembered her soft hair and proceeded to do this for the next 5 minutes.

Maybe she’ll be a girly-girl after all!
