A bad hair day

In case you don't already know,  I am currently a stay at home mum, but previous to moving to the Hunter Valley I worked as a hairdresser, owning my own salon in the Blue Mountains.
Now this little tidbit of information about my past is just to help paint the picture of the horror I felt when seeing my sons new hairstyle!!!

He & his dad thought it would be FUN to surprise me with the fact that I didn't have to worry about giving Tom the new summer hair cut he desired!!

SURPRISED..Yes I was indeed, in fact, I struggled to hold back the tears.
My dream guy knows I'm not a fan of what he affectionately calls "A real mans hair cut"


This is what he looked like pre clippers & he was in need of a trim, but hey dream guy, I can see why your an electrician & not a hairdresser.

Lucky he is a good lookin rooster, Ay!!

CHEERS

Oh, Lordy, Trish! Hmm, I also get nervous when Mr PB takes Joshie to get his haircut. He does the opposite - he doesn't get enough cut so I have to tidy it up. Not quite your situation! J x

Oh he still looks as darling as ever...I know how you feel though. My husband did the very same thing to our son a while back, but he recovered. Have a good weekend!

He does look great either way but do agree with keeping a little length. My little boy is in urgent need of a trim but he has these gorgeous curls that I love to keep some of. G

I have to say he does wear the 'do' well. Yes he's a good looking guy, and can get away with that style. Many can't! As long as he's happy is the main thing, and it'll grow back. :)

Oh Trish, I think the shock would have been huge, but you are so right...he is one cute little guy that can carry that new haircut off with heaps of style. Hope you have a wonderful weekend lovely ~ Tina xx

Trish,
That haircut was pretty drastic! Reminds me of the time I came home from a trip and my daughter who had had hair down to her waist since she was little, talked her dad into taking her to get it cut up to her chin! Needless to say, I was not happy but it always grows back! Your little one is adorable with short or long hair, but I'm with you, loved the before! So glad you visited me and became a follower! Love your blog and will be checking back often!

Oh he looks so much older!!! The day my partner
'lost' his curls I near cried. He looks so tough now! Your son still looks cute - and as you know it will grow back in no time.

Oh Trish I feel your pain. When my son was 3 I left my hubby with him at the hairdresser. Whilst hubby was busy reading the latest car magazine he failed to notice that the english punk hairdresser gave our 3 yr old a punk haircut. Including a shaved line all the way around his head - just above the ears. It is the only time I have gone off at a hairdresser- oh and my husband lol. I mean what were they thinking??? My solution a hat and time for it to grow back:). Hang in there lovely.
