Skye and Jenna Go to the Salon

Skye has been asking me for a couple months now if she could get her hair cut. Jenna started asking if she could get hers cut as well, and finally I made them an appointment at Akari in Portland. When I told Skye yesterday that I made them an appointment for this morning, she was so excited; she nearly cried. She was very excited to get the short hairstyle she wanted, and Jenna was looking forward to having several inches cut off her long, beautiful locks, and to get bangs as well.

Akari is very nice with a comfortable waiting area and a drink bar with tables as well. Brent and I already knew Jenny, who is very sweet, and she’d cut my hair previously. She was scheduled to cut Jenna’s hair today. Skye had Ashley as her hair stylist. Yes, I was one of those annoying parents who frequently walked over to take pictures of them during the process. They didn’t seem to mind at all and were very nice about it. Brent stopped by briefly to say hello and to take a few photos himself.

Brent had instructed the girls to ask a lot of questions and pay attention so they would know how to properly style their hair afterward. It was shocking to see so much hair on the ground! Skye got a very short cut. It’s very different, but she looks older, and I think it’s very cute and sophisticated. Jenna, who had especially long hair, got quite a bit lopped off. She looks much different with bangs and layers that frame her face. She’s beautiful! Jenny and Ashley were great. Since returning home, the girls have constantly been looking at their reflections and brushing their hair.

I will post only a portion of the many pictures I took. ;-)

  1. I love the picture of Skye’s bob with the hair on the left braided back. Jenna looks older but also still very sweet :-)

  2. You girls are so grown up. Love the haircuts. Jenna looks like me!!! How tall is Skye and Jenna? Is Hayley’s hair still long. We love you all!!

    Love,

    Aunt Christi

  3. Hey, Sis. Yes, the girls have grown up quickly. I often see you in Jenna, too. I don’t know the girls’ heights, but today I noticed Jenna is slightly taller than Kirsten, who is 5′ 0″. Skye is slightly taller than them both. Hayley recently got her hair cut to just longer than shoulder-length. We love and miss you. Happy Christmas.

  4. Tyler has passed me in height. He is 5’1 or 5’2. I can also share shoes with Trenton. Merry Christmas. Hope your family had a great day!!! Love you

  5. Christi, both Skye and Jenna borrow my clothes, and both of them wear a larger shoe size than me! Our kids are growing up fast! Of course you and I aren’t very big to begin with. ;-)
