It's got some curl to it, which I love, but it was always just so silly-looking.
I couldn't bring myself to pay $20 to have such a tiny amount of hair cut from that little half-bald head, so I cut it myself. I've been cutting Caleb's hair for a while now (his soft curls are thankfully very forgiving of little imperfections!). I distinctly remember the main reason why we brought Caleb to a kids' salon for his first two haircuts--it's because there was absolutely no way we could trust him to sit still enough to do a proper cutting! But Russ is such an angel. I had no worries about him. He just sat there patiently. I love that kid.
Although, it didn't take long to cut such a small amount of hair. I didn't even touch the top since there isn't even enough hair to spike.
We're pretty happy with the results. His hair looks a little bit thicker now that it's lacking those wisps, but you'd never guess that he ever had enough hair to cut. One thing's for sure, it's very low-maintenance, which is great.
And this sweet little kid is handsome no matter what.
