I don't know if he was feeling an unusual amount of spontaneity last night or what, but he took the plunge. Before you look at the pics, let me tell you that this was my first mohawk ... so it's a little crooked. And I took too much off the front. Just don't hold it against Silas, all right? He likes how it looks, so I'm off the hook, but I definitely know what I'll do differently next time.
One more thing. Some of you have already told me that your sons want mohawks, but you won't do it. Here's my thought, for whatever it's worth - let them do it! It's just hair, for cryin' out loud. If it's being done with a rebellious attitude, then you obviously need to deal with the rebellion. Otherwise, let your kids have some freedom to choose their own hairstyle. It's temporary, they'll have fun, you'll laugh at the pictures twenty years from now, and you'll score some major "cool mom" points. Or don't. We'll like you anyway.
Now, here are the pics.
Thursday night - before the clippers hit the head.
Thursday night - After the clippers hit the head and with the hair picked out to a frohawk.
Friday morning - Using some product to keep the curls intact.
