A couple of years ago, like many children, Eliza decided to take the art of hairdressing into her own hands and hacked off a great big chunk of her hair.
Thankfully the main chunk was at the back of her head, so wasn’t that noticeable on a day-to-day basis and she has been having her hair trimmed at the barbers with the boys whilst we waited for it to grow out.
Eliza had her birthday at the end of January and as one of her birthday surprises, we booked her into Level Hair Salon to have her first proper wash, cut and blow dry.
She was treated just like an adult customer, offered a drink and a cake and taken off to have her hair washed in the special sinks, albeit needing a booster seat to reach high enough.
We had a good look through at styles and Eliza decided that she wanted her hair in a long bob and wanted to grow her fringe out, so the stylist got to work and took a good couple of inches off her hair.
I have to admit that I was worried we were going to lose some of her gorgeous blonde hair, but the haircut did her hair the world of good and I have not seen it looking so healthy and shiny for a long time.
She certainly loves her new style and we have been busy buying some pretty hair clips so she can keep her fringe out of eyes whilst she grows it out.
To help look after her posh ‘new do’, Bags of Love sent her this gorgeous personalised hairbrush with two of her favourite photographs on – one walking along a log in Bluebell Wood and the other from our holiday to Lapland.
The brush has mixed natural & nylon bristles, which gently separate the strands producing smooth, glossy results and perfect for keeping her hair looking good.
Hopefully now she will stop borrowing my hairbrush (I can never find it).
Have you treated your child to their first salon experience yet?
