New Haircut Boy
As many of you know, Keegan’s hair is very curly. But what you may not know is that it’s grown out considerably and when it’s dry, you can pick it out into quite the ‘fro. We’ve tried some detangler on it, but after a while, it still gets all knotted. Rather than go the whole dreads route — which might be pretty cool — we decided to take him for his first haircut today.
We went to Bob’s Barber Shop in Marietta. Bob’s is a place that I’ve been getting my haircut for about 25 years. So it was a sort of right of passage. K-Man did really well all things considered. More importantly, Andrew the barber, who goes to church with us, did incredibly well with his moving target.
Jen was a little on edge going into the process. She can be so cute when she’s worried about her little boy. But everything turned out well. Kee sat in my lap as Andrew first picked out his hair until he looked like Leo Sayer. Then he took the clippers to his head shaving off sections of ‘fro. He hacked off a few chunks of hair. We saved several locks — especially a few of his tight curls. Keegan giggled a little when Andrew shaved his hairline at his neck. And of course, when we were done, Keegan got the standard Dum Dum lollipop.
We got away without any crying. He is becoming such a big boy. And his new ‘do makes him look much faster — like his new shoes. Size 8’s!
I’ll post some more pics of the big day when I get the film developed (Long live 35mm!!).
