About a year ago I learned how to to cut Karl’s hair at an enrichment activity in the BYU-I 68th ward. It was one of the most useful and fun Relief Society activities that I had ever attended. So when I was called to serve on the BYU 25th ward’s enrichment committee and we were brainstorming for activity ideas…of course I was going to suggest it.
The day of the activity finally arrived on Wednesday. This was very fortuitous timing because the time had come, the walrus also said, for Karl to get his hair cut.
Here she is with Karen and her cat…whose name suddenly escapes me. What is his name Jess, I can’t remember? Karen was hilarious. This is the closest she got to him. Although later in the night Karen did take some time to chase him around.
Karen loves Karl. I think she might have been concerned or confused as to why he suddenly dressed in a black cape with a strange woman using scissors on his head.
I hope she doesn’t get any ideas. Like the time my little sister Krystin was 4 and cut all her bangs off. I think she regretted her decisions because we found her hiding in Mom’s closet with her bangs gelled to her forehead. I love you Krystin.
This is Laura. She is a student at the Paul Mitchell Beauty school. She was seriously so great to do this for free for us. She taught us four ways to cut boy’s hair.
1. Scissors alone with fingers.
2. Clippers with a guard
3. Scissors over a comb
4. Clippers over comb.
When I cut Karl’s hair I usually do all four methods depending on the part of the head that I am working on.
As we were finishing up Karl, Zac was up. Clarissa was a bit nervous, but she did great. The boys were having the time of their lives, I mean look at those faces.
And even though they look less than happy, all the sweat and tears were worth it! Just look at these guys:
