Hair Cuttery Fail


Oliver was looking pretty shaggy.

A lot shaggy!

And I declared that it was time for a haircut.

I watched tutorials.

I read multiple what-you-need-to-know-to-cut-your-kid's-hair posts online.

I tried it.

It did NOT go so well.

So we took it all off.

If you ask Oliver about his hair, he will tell you that it's all gone.

That it got buzzed.

He would be right.

I feel like his new haircut ages him by about 40 years...don't you think?

The best part about it all...he's hardly two, so he doesn't care.

Besides, it'll grow.

By December, his long curly locks will be back with a vengeance.

And I fully intend to try again...though only under the direct supervision of someone...ANYONE with more hair bending experience than me, myself, and I.


  1. How do you convince a nearly 2 to sit still for a blended haircut? Was that part of the online tutorials? A buzz, not so much. Yes, he is all boy now and no baby. But handsome boy!

  2. He is SO handsome. Beyond handsome.

  3. That's all I can ever manage--buzz cuts! Every once in a while I do a "trim" where I just cut around the neck and ears in between buzzes.

    He looks GREAT anyhow!
