Haircut for Holden

Usually Holden gets his hair cut/trimmed at Cookie Cutters. They have TV's and a slide, and hand out suckers and balloons for a job completed.

But I wanted Holden to get the royal treatment. I love his curls and wanted them preserved, but to get rid of the hair-helmet mullet down his neck...

Things I loved about this experience:

-Holden choosing between 'water or tea,' and opts for their herbal blend (with sugar). He said he liked it but only had a couple of sips. (Please note the position of his pinkie finger in the adjacent photo.)

-getting the lowdown from the staff on their 'salon wars' trophy. And after his cut was over telling Logan "I think I am the winner of the contest."

- telling Logan that 'sharks eat people' when Logan told us he'd be swimming through shark infested water for the Alcatraz Triathlon he was doing this weekend

- Holden giving Logan five (multiple times), and when I asked him if he wanted to say thanks, he did and as we were leaving turned to wave and said: "goodbye Logan. Have a great day today!"

Then walking to the car he says, "Logan is very very very very nice."

But really the best part was me asking Holden if I could take a picture and he had the entire half of the salon in a trance as he started posing like it was fashion week. Blue-steel has nothing on this guy... mind you, these were self directed. No coaching involved.
