To Cut...

or not to cut...

that is the question!

What do you think?

Lizzie's hair is still rather thin and we are thinking about cutting it into a cute little bob. 

However, it took SO long for it to grow out!  When we got Lizzie, her CWI had JUST shaved her head! 

Sigh!  I mean I understand why they do this but I really wish they would let the girls' grow their hair, at least a little bit.  In my advocacy work, I have seen so many updated pics (with hair) that have ultimately made a huge difference in finding the child a family!! 

So, it is a little hard for me to think about cutting her beautiful hair after it took so long to grow out from her orphanage "do."

But, she sure would look cute!  What do you all think?


  1. A cute bob...shorter in the back (stacked) and longer in the front. Adorable and easy for the summer (my DD has that cut!).

  2. Cut! It will grow. Don't get her fixated on the idea that long hair makes her beautiful! She is beautiful no matter what. Take into consideration that this is coming from someone who has not had hair longer than chin length since my freshman year in college!

  3. I too think the bob would look darling! I think it would make her hair look thicker! If you don't like it, it will grow and it will be all one length. No matter what you decide, she's beautiful!

  4. Olivia has long hair now too and pitches a fit when I just trim the ends! If Lizzie is wanting it cut then I would do it. It will grow back soon enough.

  5. I prefer long hair- she is so adorable with her long hair. I would consider up to 2 inches off but no more- plus she is a soccer player and needs to be able to put it back in a ponytail!

    Whatever you do will be adorable!! She is cute anyway you look at it!

  6. Annie,

    Well I'm going to be one of the different ones that say leave it long....that is unless Lizzie just absolutely wants it cut! I think it's adorable as it is. And it's nice to have the option of putting it up if you want. That little girl is so precious, she will look beautiful no matter how her hair is cut (or not cut). :)


  7. We too are debating. I love the short bob, but it took 3 years to get it where its at that I cant bring myself to cut it. A bob for Lizzie would make it thicker so I would probably do it.

  8. Don't cut it! I cut Claire's and I regretted it until it grew out again! Just sayin'
