A tad bit straggly
From his “email:”
Dear Sarah (Mom),
I’m in need of a new look for summer. Don’t get me wrong – I like my longer hair and get compliments on it, but it’s really bugging me now that the weather is heating up. I mean, I’m a busy guy! Swimming, playdates, birthday parties, park visits…all of this hair on my neck makes me a little crazy. Plus, I soon will be in possession of the coveted title of Big Brother. I take that designation very seriously.
And really, can we talk about the UPS store incident last week? I strutted in with my banged-up knees and monster trucks and the employee remarked to you “what a beautiful girl” I was. REALLY? What’s up with that? Now granted, that UPS chick looked like she might be missing a few marbles, but still? A GIRL? I’M ALMOST FOUR.
Please send me into the summer months in style! Oh and please, no clipper cuts. I am a Man of Distinguished Style, you know.
Well, Anders, you have come to the right place. I will have you looking dapper in no time.
My issue with Anders’ hair is that although I like it longer, it tends to look a little stringy. And although it would be a breeze to get out the good ol’ clippers, that happened once and it just did NOT work out. Trust me. The super short cut did not suit him AT ALL.
So what do you do? I knew I wanted to take the sides and the back much shorter, but leave his bangs longer in the front to keep the overall style from appearing too short. Lo and behold, I saw this child in the J. Crew catalog and was instantly smitten.
I loved the messiness, the longer bangs and the fact that the sides and back were much shorter for the summer months. But most of all? I liked that it wasn’t your run-of-the-mill preschool boy haircut.
I emailed the photo to my stylist and told her we were coming in ASAP.
Let’s stop right here. I know some of you are asking yourself a few questions. Namely:
1. Why is this woman searching for haircuts for her 3 1/2-year-old boy?
2. Why is she emailing photos to her stylist of potential haircuts for her 3 1/2-year-old boy?
3. Does she really request her stylist (who doesn’t usually cut children’s hair) to cut and style her 3 1/2-year-old’s hair?
And my answer to you is:
I RUN A WEBSITE COMPLETELY DEVOTED TO HAIR. WOULD YOU EXPECT ANY LESS FROM ME? REALLY?
So! Check it out!
Look at that hunk of love!
And the best part? You can make the style all funky or just let it chill out.
Another Hair Thursday success, don’t you think?
(How beautiful is that boy? Yeah yeah yeah, I might be a LITTLE biased…)
