Time For HairCuts!

We were long overdue for haircuts and with extra time at home during social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic, it made clearing the schedule a little easier. The weather was great so we kept the door open for fresh air, turned on Sesame Street to entertain the boys during their cuts and transformed the kitchen into a pretend barber shop.

Fun facts: (1) My mom taught me how to cut my dad and brothers hair when I was a teenager. (2) My first time to cut Derick’s hair was in Nepal just a few days after we’d met for the first time (after the camera crew left)! We couldn’t find any clippers, so I did it all with scissors and was super nervous I was gonna mess something up. He says he enjoyed that it took me longer than normal to do though. lol. Oh, and I’ve cut his hair ever since that first time. 😉

Can you cut hair? When did you start? Drop us a comment below.

See the short video below for time-lapse of the boys cuts + before and after pics.

    Great job!! I love hair cuts at home.

    • Derick & Jill

      Aww. Thanks. 🙂

      Great job on the haircuts, Jill! The boys look so different and they’ll be nice and cool for the warmer weather.

    Love the haircuts-especially the way Israel’s hair is “spikey” with gel. They both look cute with longer hair AND shorter hair. Shorter hair is probably better for the summer weather coming.

    It was perfect the first time. I learn so much from you as well! Keep it up great post.

    I’ve never cut hair before. My daughter’s usually cut each others hair.

    Any plans for a third kid?
