Two weeks ago I was fed up with Sawyer's unruly hair. Truth be told it was starting to resemble a mullet. I had taken a few attempts at cutting the long hair on top and around the ears, but I had no idea how to attack the back. So I decided it was time to visit the barber.
I planned to take him to a stylist that specialized in kids cuts, but that morning we faced several obstacles. The salon was not yet open and as we were driving we got caught in a deluge of rain. However, I was on a mission. The driving conditions were terrible, so I decided to go to the nearest salon and see if they took walk-ins. Well, it happened to be a beauty school and due to the weather there was no waiting. I just prayed he would handle it well. And much to my surprise he did an amazing job. He sat there like a big boy and hardly squirmed at all. He did refuse to put the cape on, but I didn't care. They gave him a sucker and he was well entertained. Since there was no one in the shop he had a parade of young ladies to ooh and aah over him. 10 minutes later he was done and I could breathe a sigh of relief. He looks even more adorable now. I didn't take any pictures of the process, but here is a before and after.
