Well, that didn't work!
It looked odd, although when down it did seem to pouf less. So last week I got it in my head that I was going to cut it short.
Taa daaa! I bobbed it and it worked!!
I have no experience whatsoever in regards to cutting hair, but at least she has this going for her. It's so full of body (although sadly as my friend G guessed, the curls are gone) that if I cut it crooked -- which I'm sure I did -- you can't tell. Now we pull it into a little top tail and she's good to go.
I was gone helping to prep for a GEMS supper in the evening when the rest of the girls arrived home from school, but I was told that as soon as Bright Eyes saw Peanut's hair, she declared that, "I need Dora hair too!" Bright Eyes LOVES Dora the Explorer. It looks like another hair cut will be in the not too distant future.
