Time to Embrace...

Yesterday was the day, the day for the planned buzz cut as I prepare for clumps of my hair to begin falling out.  As the day got closer, I decided against the full head buzz, but rather a haircut I could still "blend in" with as I wait for the cleansing of my hairline. I have had no signs of it happening yet, so why be too much of a planner?  However, in celebration of this event (that just ended up being a super short haircut), we had ourselves a little party. 

My goddaughter, Miss E has been growing her hair out for quite some time.  She took this opportunity to have 12 inches cut and donate it to Locks of Love.  She is awesome!

And here's E getting his took some time (and patience) to get the exact look he was aiming for, but he is happy with it in the end..PHEW!
Littlest Nephew wanted a Mohawk like E.  I'm pretty sure he has a little strut in his walk now after taking a look at his new do.
B went for the number 1 Buzz, go big or go home, Cut.  He wears it well.
Not feeling quite as bold, oldest nephew went for the Number 2.
Little Miss originally wanted a Tinkerbell haircut, but settled for a trim and pigtails.
And finally, it was time for my cut, the shortest yet...buzzed in the back and cut super short on the top.  It's definitely low maintenance for sure.

Thank you to my dear friend Lauren who welcomed me and my entourage into her home and cut hair for 3 ROCK! 

Lauren's clients for the afternoon, excluding myself and Little Miss.  I'm so happy they could share haircut day with me, and I must say, they are all looking fabulous!

Most of the gang and me.

Today I'm embracing the new haircuts, including my own, and the simple fact that I still have the hair to embrace :)
It's Thursday and I'm joining Emily at the Anderson Crew to Embrace the Camera.  Check out how others are Embracing the Camera in their everyday lives.
