Aila's hair is so fine and stringy and she HATES letting me do stuff to it! We decided that maybe if we got it cut it would look a little bit thicker and be easier to manage. We asked for a shoulder length cut with layers up to her chin. What we got was a really short hair cut with her longest layer going to her chin!!! At least it is only hair and it will grow back. Aila loved getting it cut and she loves her new look. For days after she would ask, "Is my hair still cut?"
