Introducing the New "Dos"

After my last post and realizing how badly the girls were overdue for a haircut, I scheduled appointments for Leila and Kara asap after my morning photo session had to cancel yesterday. If you have a girl and have never heard about Sweet & Sassy, you should check it out. It is one of those places, like American Girl, where I walk in and think, "Why didn't I think of this?" (Franchising opportunities are available, ladies.) This is their new favorite place for haircuts, thanks to the Hannah Montana blaring loudly, the glitter hair spray and all the girly things you can buy, not to mention manicures, pedicures and runway birthday parties. Both girls got at least 4" cut off their length and I love their new "dos"...especially Leila's new bob. I'm so tired of seeing ponytails, I can't even tell you. I didn't have time for Mia to get hers done yesterday, but I'll take her in this week.

Don't they look much better? Now, I just need to make MY appointment!!

FYI: I used Matt Klozkowski's free Wedding Fairytale Lightroom preset on these photos.

Love the dos, Michelle! Tell your gals they look gorgeous! (And you planned it perfectly for CNY. You're supposed to get your hair cut a week or two before the holiday hits.)

They all look gorgeous! And you photos are spectacular too. I wonder if they have one of those places here? My Kate is still growing out her mullet fro when she cut her own hair last August so we have not had a haircut since then and do a lot of pony tails:)
