DD (7) has had longish hair for ages, and she decided she would like a change, and said she would like a bob.
We told the hairdresser somewhere between chin and shoulders would be fine. As is always the case with hairdressers dd's new bob is shorter than chin length.
Even so, she looks fantastic But she is a bit unsure about it, I think because it is such a big change. She has even been saying she doesn't want to go back to school on Tuesday because she is worried what her friends will say.
One friend called for her today and as soon as she saw dd's hair she pointed and cackled for ages
I told her to stop, and it wasn't nice to laugh. Dd didn't say anything at the time, and I haven't spoken to her since (she went out to play) but I know she will be upset later
Just reasure her that she is gorgeous and that her friend probably laughed out of jealousy suprise.
Can I just add that not all us hairdressers are scissor happy, I always cut hair longer than the person asks for then if they want it shorter then that is no problem (you can't stick it back on can you?)
