That Moment When Your Son Makes a Drastic Change
As the mom of teen boys, I know I am in for several changes. But does it mean I'm ready? No. Yesterday my son decided to finally cut his hair, which has been long since at least second grade.
If it wasn't for the level of trust we have with our amazing hair stylist, Rachel Houli from Styling Co. in Belmar, I don't know if Benj would have ever been as confident to walk in and ask to have it all cut off.
But he knew she could do for him exactly as requested...and one of the photos he showed her was of 'Jughead' on Riverdale.
So I dropped him at the salon and left to get coffee. When I got back, there was a very grown-up person standing there that used to look like my little boy.
Although I hate change, I know it is the one thing we are guaranteed.
So I am happy for him but I just wish he would stop growing up so fast. (It doesn't help that he's almost six feet tall either.)
A HUGE thank you to Rachel at Styling Co. For years I have watched every hot guy from Monmouth County go to her for their haircuts and now I know why. She is just such a talented, cool, awesome, and trustworthy person and trust is ultra important when you are putting your 'signature look' in someone's hands.
So why did he do it? Several reasons, including:1. he really, really wants to work in a coffee shop as a barista and refuses to wear a man bun (LOL), 2. He sort of wanted to shock his friends who didn't believe he'd really ever go through with it, and 3. He thinks his beanie looks better with short hair (LOLOLOL!), and 4. He was just basically getting bored with his hair and wanted a change so that he could satisfy his curiosity about having short hair. And he loves it.
