Haircuts For Everyone...Almost!!!

I made appointments for Alex and Amberly to get haircuts. Amberly has never had a "real" haircut before, mom just always cuts her hair. I thought she would like it and she did.
Alexa decided when we got there that she needed a trim and they had someone available so she got in on the action as well. I took them to the beauty school here in Spanish Fork.
Alexa told Alex that he should get "steps" and so that is what he did. He was pretty happy with his new haircut but he was really itchy because I guess the hair went down his back.

Amberly loved having her hair washed and she just got a few inches cut off. Nothing too drastic, I didn't want mom to be mad at me. Alexa took a really long time and while we were waiting I asked about waxing for Amberly. She has facial hair (OK she has a full on moustache and beard). There was a girl available and so Amb got waxed too. I thought it might hurt her but it didn't and she couldn't stop looking at herself in the mirror.
Here is the final result. Alexa looked a bit like "Annie" and we made fun a little but I knew it would flatten when she slept and it would look great for the first day of school!!!

That night when Amberly was brushing her teeth Rich and I could hear her in the bathroom talking so we listened. She was saying: "Wow, I am beautiful, I am like a whole new woman." It was really cute and I am glad that she feels beautiful!!

Okay, I'm crying right now. You are so sweet to do that for her. I personally love getting my hair cut and my eyebrows waxed. It makes me feel a whole lot better. It's funny how little things like that can totally make you feel like a whole new person.
