Yes, I Cut Her Hair


Gioia had her first haircut at Tony and Guy this summer. It was a success. But then our family hairstylist moved back to Hong Kong, and we haven't found a new one. About a month ago, we walked into Aveda and asked if anyone could cut her hair, as it was falling in her eyes. Well, they cut it alright. But it wasn't cut well.

As her hair was growing out, it was getting shaggy. The bangs were looking especially ratty and uneven. Since we have no one to turn to, I broke out the scissors and trimmed her bangs myself. Chris is in Australia this week, and he is asking for pictures. Hence this post.

Cutting straight hair is hard. Really hard. Her bangs are much shorter than intended, primarily because I kept adjusting to get them somewhat even. It looks better than the shaggy mess it was before, but I certainly shouldn't quit my day job.

Anyone know of a pediatric hair technician in Taipei? Call me.

uhmmm... yeah. So you cut it. IT looks cute, but there definitely was a shock and "Ahhhhwwww" phase that went on. I think the next time we cut it should be on her 16th birthday.

yeah. We don't know what we are doing. Where is all this parently advice that we are supposed to be getting?

So-harder than straight bangs are S's pixie bangs. I failed miserably in the attempt. It was so bad my mother didn't dare comment. But then a friend pointed me to some youtube videos on haircutting techniques. Really helpful. Better, my own stylist took pity and now trims S's hair at no charge when she does mine. ~lmc

You should get her hair cut at Shin Kong Mitsukoshi! They have a kids hair salon complete with a toy at the end of the cut. Cuts are around nt$550 but the stylists are fast!
