I Can't See My Hair!

Jackson has always been the one with longer hair of the two older boys. Bren has spikey, Jack has sleek. Bart likes Jack's long shaggy do. Me, I like it long, but cleaned up. Lately, though, it has been getting out of hand. Hair way over his ears, in his eyes, tangled up, etc. He was constantly pushing his bangs to the side, just as a little girl who is growing her bangs out does.
Then, one day, out of the blue, Jack says, "I want a spikey haircut, like Brennan." Well, I almost passed out...I mean, my baby with his cute longish hair with spikey hair? NO!
Aimee, of Turning Heads Salon, took on the task of cutting his hair, leaving it long enough for me to not have a stroke and short enough to give him the spikey do he was begging for.

Excuse the blurriness of the picture...Jack was a wiggly machine and I didn't have my ISO up enough. Here is the after...but also after Jackson touched and touched it, causing some of the spike to fall limp.
Jack loves it. In the car he said, "Hey, I can't see my hair!" as he gazed upward. I asked if he liked it being out of his eyes and he said, "Yes, I just couldn't see a thing." He told me after his nap we have to spike it back up for Brennan to see it. I think his new hair cut looks very grown up and playful at the same time and is just perfect for Jackson.

If you live in the Omaha area and need a new stylist, try Aimee at Turning Heads Salon (google the site for a complete price list and phone number)...she ROCKS! She cut my hair on Wednesday and I love it! Tell her I sent you and you and I both get $10 off our visit...meaning your adult hair cut is only $18!

3 Words to brighten my day:

Can't wait to see J's up close and in person. :-)

My word verification was 'comming' I think because you are coming here soon!

LOVE it!! It looks so much better! I like a bit of a shaggy surfer 'do, too. But it was getting to be a shaggy bob, so I like this look much better. he looks so grown up!

I love it! I agree with you.. when it gets too shaggy it's just too much. But this look? Cute and fun yet somewhat grown up! (Which says Jack perfectly, right?)
