The Peanut Gallery slash Barber Shop


On this particular day in history...I, the mother of this household...decided it
was time.


The "cute" in L-boy's "cute baby hair"  had flown the coop weeks ago.
I'm quite certain that if you look closely,
you might just find a small creature nesting peacefully.



 L-boy's attempt at accessorizing was not helping the situation.
But you gotta give it to him for trying.
He's innovative.


His sweet sister and his clever mother decided that a set of pigtails might be nice.


And I must say...
HE ROCKED THE PIG TAILS.



But for some odd reason, his brothers and father were NOT impressed.
I understand their concern.
But, I did revel in his girlish cuteness for one sweet moment!


Here is the smashingly handsome L-boy before his very first "Big Boy" cut and style.
You probably didn't know that his very versatile mother doubles as a barber.
There were some very sketchy moments. 
One in which, his mother fell to the floor in laughter as she looked at her son who resembled
Moe of the Three Stooges.




But after the addition of a few layers,
with the precision and savvy of Edward Scissorhands...
She was tickled pink with the results.

In order to achieve this most excellent "surfer dude" look...
His mother resorted to bribery.
In the form of a very blue sucker.
I'm quite sure it was organic and sugar free.


He was quite delighted with the results.


He's feelin' the new look.
This hair cut definitely calls for a "cool dude" facial expression.


And the true test of a great haircut, is how it looks the morning after!!
Eat your heart out Justin Bieber!!

"And I'm like baby, baby, baby, ohh."

Those are the only Justin Bieber lyrics I know.
Promise.

I was actually sad to see his sweet hair go away. But...his new do looks awesome. Nicely done!

Angie said...

Oh my... he's ADORABLE with the new haircut!!!! :)

Jb said...

Those pigtails were awesome! But the blue lips...even better...kind of goth, hip and happenin'. Add a tattoo and he's all set to take on the world ;) Do you do your own tattoos, also?

Katharine said...

It looks wonderful, and wow- you are a brave woman, I cut my sons hair twice, and it looked great, but he was sooo wiggly I didn't enjoy my stress level, so I let the nice lady in the shop take the stress~

Carrie said...

Awwww! Doesn't he look cute?!

Those pigtails - you are going to be in SO MUCH trouble one day!!

My favorite is the one with the pigtails and he's looking down at his sandwich - cute!!

Love Letters To China said...

Great job! He looks adorable. I wish I could do the same for my little guy. I tried it once and lets just say he definitely needs to go to a hair salon from now on. ;-)

Victoria said...

O NO!!!! I loved his hair - however, the new style is awesome! He looks so grown up...I believe Logan will have some competition. What a looker..!

Stacey said...

LOL What a cute post! I LOVED the pig tails, though I'm sure his father didn't! And his new cut...way to go mama! He looks adorable!

Eileen said...

Cute! Much better than the time I decided to take the clippers to Adam's hair and FORGOT the guard. Oh, that was a bad day!

Melissa said...

He most certainly did Rock those piggies!
You did an awesome job on his new do!
He is just too cute!

Bethany @ Organic Enchilada said...

He's so handsome! Would have made a very pretty girl, too, but this works! Good job on the cut! My boys' hair is so course that the only thing we can do is buzz away!

Tanya said...

Love it! He's so handsome!

Liz said...

Aaaw! He looks beyond adorable either way. And I love the juxtaposition between the cute face and monster shirt.

He has blue eyes and beautiful hair that every girl would die for!

You did VERY well, my dear! I'm really impressed. Though I nearly shot water out my nose when I got to the part with Moe's mug.

What a sweet hair style. Not too big boyish.

Claudia said...

I LOVE the pig tails pic!

Tiffany said...

Aww...that is precious! He is so stinkin cute! What a darling big boy. And, may I say, I am sincerely impressed with your barbering skills. There is no way my childrens' hair would come out looking that good.

Sad to say...I know more than just those lyrics. Hanging my head in shame.
L-boy is adorable. I love the pig tails...he totally was adorable in them.
What a cutie. Love the new look.

Hannah said...

Those piggies are seriously adorable! You did a great job on the cut...he really is rocking a cool surfer look. Love it.

What a cute post Julie! I love his big eyes and his blond hair, he is so adorable. You did a good job on the haircut. And you're right, the morning after is the true test!

I really need to trim Ben's hair. He could probably rock some pigtails too! I can imagine the look on hubby's face if he saw that!

Love L-Boy's shirt BTY! So cute.

Natalie said...

Sad to see those beautiful locks go, but he's soooo handsome now! He totally rocks the surfer dude look :)

Joey @ Big Teeth and Clouds said...

You did such a good job! Hard to imagine that the men of the house shut down the pigtails!

Leanne said...

I think that is just about the sweetest little pumpkin I've ever seen (and I mean that in the absolute kindest way possible!!!) Seriously aDORable!!!!

Arizona Mamma said...

He DID rock those pig tails for sure. I am still laughing over the Moe thing. Freaking hilarious!!

That cut is too stinkin' cute. You put Great Clips to shame. Whenever Colton actually grows enough hair to cut, do you want the job?

The Empress said...

Oh, *snif* all good things must pass.

lulalola.com said...

I have to say, he was working the pigtails! He's so stinking cute! Love the hair cut! Don't you hate to see the baby hair go? I always did! He looks so grown up!

He is seriously so incredibly adorable! I can imagine how hard it was to cut his hair. I'm impressed you did it yourself. If I tried, the end result WOULD be Moe. Love the blue smile!

Seizing My Day said...

Love the pigtail photos!! =) cute and funny!

Love the new surfer dude look ~ cute! nice job mamma!

and the organic, sugar free BLue lolly ~ priceless! =)

I used to cut my kids hair ~ until it got TOO thick! =) oh the painful memories ~ we actually had to restrain Sammy in a towel... trick learned by the hospital staff while placing an IV in the poor kid! worked like a charm ~ with muscles ~ two parents and a lot of patience!! =) and snot and crying. he always got an organic, sugar free lolly too! =) We will seek therapy one day for that I am sure!

Rachel said...

oh, he totally rocked the pigtails! too cute. we just cut my six year olds hair...he wanted the "justin beaver", but it was time for a change. now he's more clean cut.

Cleo said...

I can remember my father putting a bowl over my younger brother's head and chopping around it. Am convinced he coined "bowl cut". ;)

You did do a great job!
But then again, you're working with a GREAT subject!

After the pigtails though, can see where the hubs and brothers would be concerned! LOL!

Specialty Hair Cuts Baltimore said...

Nice post.

I say,
The emphasis of a barber school's education is to teach the essentials of providing hair and skin services for men. They often learn to perform razor styling, hair cutting and coloring, blow drying, foam shaves, steam facials, and facial massages.
Using a good hair salon is key to great hair care. But how do you select the right hair salon from the many choices available?
You can do to guarantee that you always receive the best hair cuts, latest professional techniques and stellar service is to choose the right hair salon. Granted, that is easier said than done. With hair salons on practically every street corner, narrowing down your options to find the right salon can be confusing.
