Haircuts and Special Needs!

We have had many trials and tribulations over the years with getting Ella's hair cut. When she was younger it was interesting. Sometimes I managed to cut it quickly and easily. Other times we had to do it over 2 days chasing her round the garden because she just wouldn't sit still! And as for the time when Jeff and Ella decided highlights were a good idea ....... say no more!

Once she became a teenager though we decided to give the stressful job to someone that gets paid for it! And again it's hit and miss. But today she went to a local hairdressers and they were great. Worked at Ella's pace, but I noticed the hairdresser was cutting twice as fast as she would for another adult. I didn't have a problem with that, as long as Ella walked out with an acceptable haircut. But this time was far more than acceptable - it was great! Well cut, level (not an easy thing to do with a fidget), and makes her look more grown up :) Let's hope the same hairdresser is still there when it next needs attention.
