Hair Today

Monday, October 15, 2012

Dear Olive,
You were born with a decent covering of soft, dark hair. Which promptly fell out.
When you turned one, you were still pretty close to bald, with just a hint of possibility peeping around from behind your ears.
By the time you turned two, you were sporting a show stopping, bona fide mullet. Nothing at the front, and a cascade of curls partying down the back.
Now, a week out from turning three, a full head of hair including a fringe (and with no less than seven dreadlocks at the back) looks up at me from where I sit.
Oh, how far you've come in three short years! I couldn't be more proud of that knotty little bob(ish) of yours. And even though I'm yet to wrap my head around the enormity of turning three, I'm so excited there's a lifetime of hairstyles still to come.

Oh Olive you're impressive. At three you have nailed so many awesome hairstyles and yet you have many great ones still to go that I have no doubt you will achieve with ease.
The bubble, the 'fro, the Rachel, side ponytail, the Farrah....xx

ps. When is Olives actual birthday? I have a fabric feather here that would perfectly embellish one of those dreadlocks!

a month (and a bit) out from turning 2, and coco is still struggling to grow hair (but i'm pretty sure things are starting to happen!). i can only dream of mulletted coolness by the age of 3.

She is such a cutie and that hair is so sweet I still feel sad I cut Lachie's curls off.

I can't believe she is almost 3. That means Elke is almost 3. How is that possible?? xx
