Um, Really?

Elise's hair has started to get a little (okay, A LOT) unruly. Mostly it's her bangs... they're a wee bit on the long side. So I called up a place that may or may not be called Cool Cuts 4 Kids. I explained that my daughter is only 11 months old, and doesn't need anything more than her bangs cut. The quoted price? $18 dollars!!!

I snickered as I hung up and did some quick calculations. Elise's haircut would really take no more than 10 minutes. That's roughly about $120/hour. Wow. I mean, it's not like the person that would be cutting her hair is the "creme de la creme" of stylists. Or are there some people that go to hair stylist school for the explicit desire of cutting children's hair? Are they the pediatricians of hair? Is it their innate love of the bowl cut that drives them? I want to know.

So here's my question... where can I take Elise for a relatively good, relatively inexpensive hair cut? And please don't suggest I do it myself. I can't even cut coupons out straight using the dotted line.

walmart cuts kids hair...and sometimes you can get coupons for great clips for $7.95 for kids...
or you could do it yourself and then all of us mom's would know and point...KIDDING.
i made the mistake of cutting the boys hair when they were 4 and under...when i look back at the pics i feel sorry for them! LOL
