PSF: Emma's Hair-Going, Going, Gone

Time's almost up to enter my Lia Sofia necklace giveaway. If you haven't yet, but want to enter, go here.


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

Right before we moved Emma decided it was high time she shed some hair. I really, really didn't want her to cut it, but she was tired of the tangles so we went for the big cut. My sister in law (whom you all know now as "she that leaves no stone unturned") was gracious enough to do the honors and snipped 10 inches. I don't think I've ever seen such a happy hair cutting camper. Emma beamed the WHOLE time and has been thrilled with her new do. It doesn't hurt that she was able to donate all that goodness to help another child either.
How's that for going green and recycling?

She has THE most incredibly gorgeous hair, and even after the cut it's still beautifully long. Plus, she's helping a sick child who's out there somewhere.

Wow! Her hair was LOOONG! It looks very cute now- thick and healthy too. Beautiful!!!

Vicki said...

I'm going to show these pictures to my daughter. Her hair is just as long but she already has an attachment to...no doubt created by me. I'm trying to convince her that donating it to Locks of Love would be awesome and that her hair would grow back quickly. Maybe seeing that your daughter still has length to her hair might convince her. Thanks!

I love the haircut! Natalie recently got hers cut off too. She had been begging me for a haircut but I liked it long.

Nicole said...

I'm Jealous in more than one way! I wish I had her hair and wouldn't it me so nice to have a little girl to do her hair! Oh well, what can I say, I was blessed with boys. Good for her, she looks beautiful.

Lula! said...

First of all, I would commit highway robbery to have hair that color. GORGEOUS!

Second, her hair is beautiful long, but wowza--I am loving it "shorter." She is beautiful, and definitely has a future as a Pantene model. Way to go, Emma!

It would have caused me physical pain to see that hair go.. Oh. My. But like you said... good cause and all. I went with my sister to cut off 18 inches of her hair to donate... the hairdresser let me do the honors and cut off the braid... and my sis looks fab with short hair...

Do you know what I would pay for hair like that?

Seriously, it is so gorgeous.

What a wonderful gift!

Tash said...

wow it looks great! Have you ever cut it before or are you guys just blessed with awesome hair?! Did she donate?

Sam_I_am said...

10" and she still has a lot left! It will be a shock for her for awhile when she goes to touch it and her hand falls off the bottom.

Veggie Mom said...

When I was a kid, I would have killed (well, metaphorically speaking, anyway) to have a gorgeous mane like that. And so wonderful that you donated it!

Lorie said...

Love redheads, being one myself, out of my 5 kiddos; I only have one who is almost red (more strawberry blonde). My eldest donated her hair, but she didn't have 10 inches; so she donated to Beautiful Lengths by Pantene. I'm considering doing that myself as well. Hair cutting party anyone?

Rebecca said...

How sweet! Love these pictures!
