This last week was the week of hair cuts. Back in November, I got my hair cut at a random salon here in Stockholm - not awful, but certainly not the best. I was happy to wait it out for the next cut back in Seattle - a great haircut indeed, but that was expected. So, now it has been a few months and time again. I searched around and last Monday decided it was time to check out another place. It was a gamble again, but it turned into such a pleasant surprise, when I ended up with one of the best haircuts ever. So, for anyone doing a google search for - recommendations salon Stockholm - I'll add in a plug for Alex at Snagit. It was definitely a great way to spend International Woman's Day.
More desperate in the hair department needs was little Myrna. We had yet to take scissors to her little locks and she was looking a bit shaggy, with bangs in her eyes and the start of a baby mullet. Other parents weren't super excited about kid salons and we figured we could do the deed ourselves. But finding hair scissors seemed an impossible task (Stockholm is lacking in the Target or even drugstore type stores). We finally got a tip that a new pair of sharp nail scissors may do the job and that we could find. So Sunday after a bath, we took on the moppet top. We hit the top priority - the bangs - first and then armed Myrna with a cell phone to occupy her, while we started in on the back. She lasted for about five minutes (the battery on my phone was dying), but it was enough time to at least get her "after" pic better than her "before" pic, and that's all that really matters.
