Surprise First Hair Cut

Penelope's first hair cut was fun.  We made an appointment at my sister's salon, took pictures, and made a really big deal about it.  I even saved some of her hair.  Scarlett's was a completely different story.  I went to get the girls up from naps and this is what I found.
Yes, she is naked.  Why? They were standing in the shower for some reason and I'm guessing she thought you don't wear clothes in the shower.  And wait it gets worse.  Penelope went and cut all her curls off.  So her hair was actually weighted down by the curls and straight on top, once I wet it again it shrunk right up to just below her ear.
I showed Scarlett in the mirror and of course she was thrilled about it.  I on the other hand was not so happy.
I tried to even it out, but I still need to do something to fix it. Too bad it isn't long enough for a pony tail anymore.  Below is the pic after it shrunk up and I trimmed it.  Her bangs just look ridiculous!  How fast does hair grow again?  Her hair was half way down her back when it was straight and a few inches down when curly.  I figure both girls got about six inches cut.  Go here to see what it looked like before the hair cut.
Yes, I said both girls.  Penelope cut her own as well.  Luckily her damage wasn't as bad.
I was really upset with her.  Hence the sad face.
I felt like her hair was finally getting long again.  I'm still not sure if I'm going to cut it all to match or try to just make it blend in.  It does blend ok because the braided part didn't get cut much.  In the next picture you can see the nice chops she did on both sides.
Looking at this next picture just makes me sad :-(
Yesterday was not really the best day for me.

Oh my goodness! I would be more than upset. If I were you, I would hide the scissors.

Now Scarlett wears the same hairdo I always had on Corinne...25 or more years ago. She is still darling. It will grow back.

Poor you. I would have yelled/screamed loud enough for you to hear me at your house. Hope today goes/went better.
