Spencer's Hair

I cut Everett's hair this morning, and every time I'm practicing my hairdressing skills, I always ask if anyone else would like a cut. Paxton declined (I'm pretty sure his hair is the longest it's ever been since he was a toddler), but Spencer announced that he was tired of his long hair, and ready to part with it.

He had a choice of scissors, the Flowbee - Everett's preferred method - or clippers. Scissors took too long, and clippers were too messy. So Flowbee it was. Except the Flowbee unequivocally and steadfastly refused to cut his thick hair. So he went to plan B... the clippers, on the longest setting. Even with those, I still had to pre-cut with scissors to make the job easier. I don't think I can adequately describe just HOW MUCH hair he had!

This is what he ended up choosing:

Light and comfortable, though admittedly odd for him (and me!) as it's been so long since he's had short hair. He picked the perfect week to do it, as he gets his braces on on Thursday, and will complete his whole new look.
