Should I Let My Daughter Cut My Hair?

My daughter got her cosmotology kit today (that's me and my daughter in the photo). She rushed inside to show me all of her new toys: hairdryer, flat iron, haircutting scissors and razors, combs, those clipper things they use on the guys...she will probably have a parade of her friends in my home away free haircuts.

She's been cutting her friends' hair for years. She also colors their hair and puts in extensions. She's quite talented. Now she's taking the classes in high school and will be able to graduate with a license and the ability to earn a good living.

I don't think her father was happy about her chosen vocation at first. I have no problem with it. I think it's wonderful that she will be doing something she enjoys, plus this is not a job that can ever be outsourced to India and cannot be done by robots.

I would like to see her aspire to more than working at the mall giving haircuts all day. I would like her to start her own business, or learn to do stage makeup and work on films. She thinks I'm crazy. I will support her no matter what path she chooses.

Yes you should :P
Some people consider some vocations less worthy than other but every jobi s worthy! Especially if a person loves it and is good a it! So I think you should let your daughter cut (your) hair. :)

I have already written a comment here. Twice! But this blogger obviously hates me :P I just wanted to say you should let your daughter cut your hair... and she should do that for a living if she likes it and is good at it :)

I'm sorry. I must have set my comments to be moderated after too few days. I have to figure out how to fix that.

I think it is a very important job. People who think they are better than others because of their chosen profession annoy me.

She asked me again today if I would be her client once she has enough hours to accept appointments. I will be going to the school to let her cut, color, style, or whatever my hair. I'll let you guys know how it turns out. I'll post pictures.
