This time, we all trouped into my salon. That was quite the experience. I generally go at night, so I don't have to take any kids and this time I had all five. Whew....never again! Aidan was first up. She cut it short, like I asked, but then she asked him if he wanted some colored gel and a spike. I really didn't think I would like it, but it is the cutest haircut he has ever had! It just suits his little personality. He has asked a few times since then to have me spike it (with orange gel) and while we don't have the orange gel, I have spiked it and it's adorable!
Austin's hair is a challenge for the most experienced of stylists. He does end up with a near-butch every single time we go in because at the crown of his head he has soooo many cowlicks, it's just a straight line of stick-up. It is also extremely thick and very wiry. This time, she used that to his advantage and also styled his into a spike. His isn't as obvious as Aidan's because his hair is so much thicker, but it looks really nice. He, though, doesn't like to do anything with his hair, so I have had to initiate the styling with him. The orange in his hair looked almost red and was really a nice color with how dark his hair is. I was surprised I didn't mind the orange! I let them both keep it in, too, for one night.
