Josie wants to grow her hair out of the butch cut, because she’s been called “he” and “young man” and doesn’t like that.
We told her we’d help her take care of whatever hairstyle she chose.
When she heard that, she said right away that she would like it to be chin length.
So she’s been growing it out, and it was definitely getting to that awkward, in-between, shaggy stage.
This week, I had a haircut appointment and asked whether she wanted to come along with me and let my stylist give her professional advice on how to help it look nice on its way to chin-length, or whether she’d rather stay home for Reading Night.
I honestly didn’t know what she’d choose and was so surprised and touched when she jumped at the chance to go along!
We proceeded to have a fun Mom and Josie night and we’re both happy about the hairstyle plan. My stylist kept telling Josie she made a great choice and that it will look so nice on her!
She offered to trim and shape Josie’s hair up right away and wouldn’t charge us for it! She said she was just glad to see Josie so happy!
And so are we!
