Cutting hair

Yiu Yiu has always liked to keep her hair long, and each time we teased her about cutting off her hair, she'd protest with an emphatic NO!!! She still allowed us to cut her fringe though, and so we've been taking her to her姨婆(hubby's aunt) salon to have her fringe cut ever since she started growing her hair long. And oh by the way, only her 姨婆can cut her hair. We tried taking her to other salons, or getting another stylist from 姨婆 salon to cut for her but no, the stubborn girl only wants 姨婆, as if she wields a magic scissors :-)

Out of the blue 2 – 3 weeks ago, she told us she wanted to cut her hair SHORT! I was like, WHAT?! She said she wanted to cut her hair short like Faythe, her buddy in kindy. And she had been pestering us to bring her to 姨婆 salon since then. We warned her that if she really cut her hair short, there's no way to reverse it if she changed her mind. I certainly don't fancy having to deal with a whiny little girl who wants her hair back so better warn her in advance.

Anyway, when we were at the salon, 姨婆 was against the idea of cutting her hair short, since Yiu Yiu has curly hair which may be unruly if cut short. Surprisingly she listened to 姨婆 and agreed to just trim her hair. I think 姨婆 must have snipped away about 3 inches of her hair.

Getting ready, with part of her hair clipped up


Snipping away

Notice her half-cut fringe?

Me and my new hairstyle. Pretty or not?

WK - I'd to think that she's assertive, which isn't a bad trait :-)

Jazz - haha, that is sooo funny. I think that time both of us will bang our heads against the wall :-)

Smallkucing - I also dunno why she suddenly wanted to have short hair.

Michelle - funny how kids tend to listen to other people more than their parents :-)

Mummy to QiQi said...

qiqi also like that, wanna keep hair long so i let her be. but i'll bring her out to trim once in a while so tat it would not get too long. guess how i trick her? i told her that her hair all rosak with splitted ends, and if she wants her hair to grow long faster, must always trim.

Mimi - little vainpots we have :-)

Chinnee - she never allowed us to trim her ends so I was sooo surprised when she suddenly declared she wanted her hair short like Faythe. Haha.
