Today was a great day. In the amount of time it takes to watch Disney's "The Emperor's New Groove," I finished Wyatt's rooting! I filled in that little bald section on the back of his head and added a little more depth to the eyebrows.
I must admit that Wyatt's mommy has converted me into a blonde lover. I had my reservations at first because it so hard to see individual strands of blonde hair when I'm rooting. But a head full of it is simply gorgeous. I can't wait to see his hair in the sunlight!
As expected, our little guy was in need of a haircut. When I finished rooting, his hair fell a good two inches below his neckline - not very newborn like.
So, tonight, I also gave him my special newborn baby trim. When you see this trim, you'll know that it was not done by a cosmetologist. I wasn't going for a bowl cut or a bob. Instead, I cut his hair to look like it has never been cut at all! Ironic, isn't it?
Wyatt's hair is long at the crown but gets shorter as you approach the hairline - just like a real baby. I left his hair on the long-ish side so we get plenty of layers of that beautiful blonde. But it is still nice and wispy like a newborn baby.
After the trim, I sealed the hair. Sealing is the process of thoroughly gluing the hair at the root so it does not come out when washed or styled. He'll be drying overnight. From there - its all finishing touches. He's almost ready to go home!
