Lily, that is so funny.
Yes, my mother cut "chopped" my hair at home.
it is the main reason I became a hairdresser, I learned to cut my own bangs around age 12 when I got tired of looking like a clown.
Never failed,she always did one of her "trims" just before picture day at school, those old photos are so embarrassing.
First home cut I can remember was rather traumatic, good thing I usually recover from shock fast.
I was 4 years old and had the longest hair anyone around had seen, I used to sit on my long braids after long sits with my mother doing them up.
We were about to do a long cross country trip from Conn. to Calif. by car and she just couldn't for see doing my hair on that long trip with 3 other kids to watch.
She gave me a short bob, chin length.
No more of those admiring looks or comments on that "cute little girl with the longest hair"
I did better then my 2 older sisters ever did, at least I never had to suffer with one of those Toni home perms, they both have photos of looking like escaped mental patients, hair sticking out every which way.
Have a Happy Easter as well.
