edith's first haircut

Two weekends ago I finally got around to trimming up Edith's mullet. I tried to find tutorials on trimming baby girl hair but came up mostly empty handed. I ultimately just went for it with the help of Jon's suggestions. I didn't even trim the front of her hair because she still just has peach fuzz there--this was focused on the sides around her ears and the back.
Her hair has a few curls in the back so it was even longer than I realized once I got it wet and straightened it out.

Edith was a good sport and I definitely recommend doing this in the sink. That being said, I feel like when her hair was dryer it was a little easier. Jon also recommended I trim around her ears a certain way--which I did--but after the fact I realized that's how we cut Elden's hair and Edith is not a boy, so... sorry about that haircut, kiddo.
Before: the front is all out of sorts and I didn't even know where to begin so I let it be. The sides were way over her ears and the back was definitely mullet-y.
After: Trimmed up the sides so they didn't hang weird over her ears. In retrospect, this was a mistake.
No more rat tail at least??
Live and learn. I will ultimately probably try to figure out something with Edith's bangs (that is, all the hair from her ears forward) but there is just so little of it I don't have a clue. Thoughts??

  1. Just keep letting the sides and getting grow out and trim up the back as you go. It'll have awkward moments, but it's ok - she's little and adorable so she can pass it off.
