New Do's!


Its Summertime and with summer comes the itch for a new look.

So far Silas and I have our new looks. Nichol is going in this week for her new do and Olivia will have a different kind of new look soon. David and Skyler get hair cuts regularly so they have "new do's" more then most of us. :)

So yeah.

Silas' hair is so crazy thick I've been waiting for the day we could take him in and have his hair "done". The gal who cuts my hair has a chair right next to this HIP and I do mean HIP young black woman who has always told me she wanted to do Silas' hair when it was long enough. The other day when I paid my gal a visit she was there and her three AMAZING kids who all had AMAZING hair, think 8 inch afro or 6 inch afro mohawk. Cool stuff I'm telling ya. I showed her Silas' latest hair growth and she said we were close for what I want done.

All inspired we came home and Saturday I decided I would try a double twist on Silas' hair. The salon gal said it would take her about 45 minutes to an hour for his head so I had a good idea of what it should take me. After an hour and fifteen minutes this is what we had.






It even looked good while taking a swim!


However it was a bit loose after all that jumping so my friend Sarah and I re-did it for Sunday. Silas is such a trooper!



I think the kid likes all this attention!
