She got her hair cut once before, about six months ago, at a cute little salon called Kids Kuts in Everett. My step-mother-in-law (that's a confusing term, huh?) went with us and took a bunch of pictures. Here's a sampling from that visit:
This time we went to a place called Fun Kuts in Lynnwood, and I must say I like this salon more than the other one. The inside was just as cute, and they also had a big play area at the entrance with a bunch of toys for kids to play with while they waited. Christina really enjoyed playing with the trains and the kitchen set. The haircut itself was a couple bucks cheaper, but it included a shampoo, whereas at Kids Kuts they just sprayed water on her hair before cutting it.
The stylist/owner at Fun Kuts spent a lot more time working on Christina's hair - granted, Christina has a bit more hair to work with now (though not much - her hair grows so slow!). Christina got some long layers cut in her hair to show off the curls.
She also got a blow dry, and the stylist added some curl cream.
Then she french braided the front of her hair and put in a little ribbon. She even sprayed it with some product and then put sparkles in!
Christina just loved it, and so did I. And all of this for only $20. Granted, some might say that $20 is way too much to spend on a kids haircut, but Christina had a great time, and it was really an EXPERIENCE more than just a haircut. So for me, it was totally worth it.
And of course, Christina wanted to check out the other "chairs."
