I Might Have Gotten a Little Carried Away

Recently I have been looking at pictures from last summer and thinking how handsome Zander looked with shorter hair. I have been debating getting his hair cut, but I just hate paying so much for a boys haircut or trim. I had a great girl up north that would cut the kids hair for a very reasonable price, but just haven't found anyone down here yet.

Today, I thought to myself, was a great day to "trim" Zander's hair. The back was starting to look like a mullet and his bangs were in his eyes. It started off simple enough and then as I went on I decided it would look better shorter. Clippers. That was the logical solution. I used to cut Bologna's hair back in his Corps day when he had to have a fresh haircut every week. We usually used a 3 on top and then blended the bottom with a 2, 1 and no shield.

I thought that surely a 5 on top would be plenty long. Maybe, it is the blond hair or maybe I just got carried away but his hair is so short!
Oh, well. He is still adorable. At least in my humble opinion!

I think his new "do" looks great! I feel like Edward Scissorhands when I get ahold of the scissors. I don't know when to stop...LOL. Very cute pic! It couldn't have been done any better if Paul Mitchell himself had done it.

I don't think it looks too short at all! He looks very handsome!

It looks great! I'm a total fan of the short hair for the little boys! BTW, we use a 3 on the bottom for Trace, then blend and use scissors on top (when I say we, I mean I direct the haircut person so they can charge me $10 because I will not be responsible for Trace being bald).

I think he looks super handsome. I think you did a fabulous job with the hair cut! I would never attempt cutting Preston's hair so I give you a lot of credit. No matter what you could ever do to his hair, he would never cease being absolutely gorgeous!
