Our 14 months old, String Bean needs something done with her hair. She's got a fair amount of baby soft hair that is getting fairly long. If she had been a boy, we would have cut it by now.
I'm trying to figure out when/how to get it cut. I like the fact that it is long because she looks like a girl and has all those cute curly Qs at the bottom of her hair that I'm sure will disappear if we cut it. On the other hand, her hair only looks good for about 2 1/2 minutes a day and that's right after I wet her hair down, comb it, and put a barrette in it. I say 2 1/2 minutes because that's the average amount of time the barrette stays in her hair before she discovers it is there and pulls it (and several locks of hair) out. When her hair looks bad, it looks really bad. If it were my hair I would have cut it long ago.
So, I'm looking for some opinions. When did you get your daughter's hair cut for the first time? What prompted you to do it? What advice do you have for String Bean's hair?
