I took Jo and Beth to get haircuts this morning. They both wanted to go shorter than what they had been wearing for the past year or so. This was a HUGE relief to me with Jo, as brushing her long curly hair was becoming increasingly irritating, what with all the screaming because of the tangles. HOWEVER, cutting curly hair is DANGEROUS, as it springs up much shorter than you would expect. So after emphasizing repeatedly that we wanted shoulder-length WHEN IT WAS DRY, I let the stylist have at it. I did talk Jo out of going back to bangs. She wanted to because Meg had gone back to bangs about a month ago and had a really cute haircut. I couldn't help but think that it would be a mistake and then we'd have to go through the HELL of growing them out again. Anyway, she ended up with a really cute haircut:
It actually doesn't look very curly in the picture; you'll just have to trust me on that.
Beth has the exact OPPOSITE of curly hair. She decided to get a little bob, but has also decided that it is TIME FOR ME TO EXPERIENCE BANG-GROWING HELL YET AGAIN, so though her hair was cut, her bangs were not, leaving her looking a bit... unfinished, but still cute:
Amy decided that she MUST WEAR SWIMMING GOGGLES today. Everywhere. So she wore them to get the other girls' haircuts, where I must've said, "Yeah, she won't take them off," a million times in response to "cute goggles" comments. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture, as she DID finally take them off when we got home, but here is a picture of what she insisted on wearing all day a couple of days ago:
