To cut or not to cut?

Lorelai's hair is kind of crazy. She was born with a bunch of dark beautiful hair and almost all of it fell out except for one long section in the front (remember the reverse mullet?). We've been pulling it out of her face with bows and rubber bands, but she always ends up pulling them out, so her hair just ends up hanging in her face. It's almost long enough to tuck behind her ear, but not quite, so it's just a huge pain. Especially when it ends up with food in it. Or a big huge booger. Yeah. That happened.

Lorelai's hair

The thing is, Adam and I don't want to cut it. Partly for sentimental reasons (it's her original baby hair!) and partly because style-wise, I don't want her to have bangs. I don't want to have to constantly trim them (sharp scissors near my squirmy child's eyes!) and I like the look of side-swept hair tucked behind her ears. Plus, the rest of her hair is still short, so I don't want her to look like a boy.

Decisions, decisions... (opinions welcome!)

Hair in her face
"Hey! Get this hair out of my face!"


  1. I refuse to cut Addison's, it's constantly in her face. The kid won't leave anything in her hair to hold it back for more than 10 mins. Ocassionally we can pull a "Pebbles" do that lasts hours. I just don't want to cut bangs cause then you have to keep them trimmed or deal with the same thing all over again when you want to let them grow out.

  2. Don't do it! Bangs suck. I've had to deal with the hair-in-the-face thing with Leila FOREVER... yes, it is annoying, but I refuse to cut bangs. Sooooo, I clippy it aside multiple times/day or put it in a ponytail on top of her head (which she tends to mess with less). I recommend those tiny plastic rubber bands. :-)

  3. Ok good, I'm glad I'm not the only one! I'm going to hold out until it's long enough to stay behind her ears. And maybe by that time she'll actually leave the bows in her hair :)


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
