Elizabeth first had her long, mid-back length, curly hair washed.
And I first had her cut it below shoulder length, but Elizabeth really, really wanted it shorter. She has two friends with shoulder length pageboys and bangs, and really wanted her hair to look like theirs. We decided to take another inch off, and gently taper some of the front. But the front of her hair is too curly for bangs.
We left a fair amount of hair on the floor.
