We've learned to celebrate all firsts, no matter the significance...even if it is just the first haircut. Nothing dramatic...just a little trim. Miss P will still be bouncing around in her famous ponytail or braided piggies.

This girl has LOTS of hair. And natural highlights that many people pay big bucks for...

First haircut was quick and painless. She did great and earned a strawberry Dum-Dum when it was all over which was completely gone by the time we got back to the car!


  1. Good job, Oia!! I'm glad it was only a trim...I adore her ponies and braids!!

  2. What gorgeous hair! So many people must stop you to comment!

  3. Beautiful girl! And yes, we "natural" blonds drop quite a bit of change for those lovely highlights!
