So, this week I thought I'd try my hand at butchering trimming my boys hair.
Here are some before's...(actually taken on Christmas day, I didn't think to snap a pic right before I started trimming). Jason was really starting to look shaggy. People always ask if he's a girl. Even when he's wearing boys clothes. What's up with that? I mean I dress him as a boy, because he's a boy!!! (oh, yeah. Haley's a girl, but she dresses like a boy--whatever!)

Justin was getting a little long in the back as well, and shaggy-ish all around.

Here's their hair-pile. Justin's on the left------Jason's on the right. People always ask if there's a reason I cut Justin's short and let Jason's grow out. Um, no. That's just how they grow. One's got more hair.
Justin's after.....I was a little more worried about screwing up his hair, because it's straight and it would be SO obvious.

I tried to not take off too much though. The less I do, the lower my chances of messing up?

And Jason's after.

Hopefully it's ok. It's kind of hard to tell because it's so curly. But, I'm fairly pleased. Saved $25!!

You did a great job. My husband makes me cut his hair and let me just say I'm so glad he can't see the back of his head.

Great job! Adam does his and my hair. I do the kids' hair.

I was a cosmetologist BC (before children).
I forget how much $$$ I've saved over the years becuase I'm the haircutting person in the house.

So cute. I cut my boys' hair all the time. Mostly because they don't want anyone else to do it.

Great job, Mikki! Both cuts look really good!

We enjoy cutting our boys hair. At first I did a bowl cut every time. We have plenty of hideous pictures as proof. But now I'm developing a little more talent in hair cutting. Or at least I'd like to think that.

You did great. I cut my husband and my boy's hair, but I take my girls to have theirs done.
