A Budding Beautician...NOT!!
As I sat at the table eating bonbons and reading a steamy romance novel this morning (not really, I was looking at grocery ads), my children decided to go into my bathroom. I didn't think much of it until it became quiet. That's when I inquired as to what they were doing. My son came in to get my scissors, so I asked him why he needed them. He told me that he needed them for his sister's hair. "Uh, no!" I said. So I awakened back to reality, walked into my bathroom, and this is the sight I saw. I would like to be able to tell you that I was a good mother and didn't give my daughter a complex by laughing at her hysterically, but I can't. I lost it!! I tried my best to fuss, but I just couldn't! I laughed! She and my son had worked at trying to get the brush released from her hair, but to no avail. I did the same...to no avail, so..... I called for back up.
"Pebbles", in all of her glory, had to be loaded up and whisked away to the salon, because no one could remove the brush from her hair. She's really excited to go and be seen in public. Can you tell?
We were prepared to have it all cut off pretty short, but the stylist at the salon worked on it for a while, and...
she was finally able to remove the brush. (She did have to cut it out, however.) She shampooed, conditioned, cut, and dried my daughter's lovely locks.
After 8 hands, 2 1/2 hours, and $20.00 later, "Pebbles" emerged without her prominent head piece.
I told her that IF she ever does this again I am going to cut it out myself at home then take her to the salon for a $6.99 haircut with a coupon. I think "Pebbles" has learned her lesson! :)
