Once inside, Soph and Asher announced that they had to use the bathroom, so off we went. While in the bathroom, Sophia complained incessantly of the smell (a combination of hair products and plywood in the storage room/bathroom) while Asher looked everywhere but the toilet resulting in very wet jeans and underwear. Thankfully he recovered from this trauma more quickly than I anticipated and after washing our hands and getting ourselves all "back together," we returned to the salon.
Sophia was led to the "spa" portion of her appointments while Asher was offered an airplane chair in which he would sit for his haircut. They played the movie "Cars" (which happens to be one of his favorites) for him too. Let me tell you, the boy was happier than a man with a Budweiser in one hand, remote in the other, reclined in "his chair" for a Sunday afternoon of football viewing.
Francesca received her first haircut and was a perfect angel throughout the experience. She sat as "still" as she ever does in her Jeep chair while watching an Elmo video. I had to offer her a bottle toward the end to get through the "blow out" and braiding portion of the style, but she did awesome!
Soph chose teal and pink polish with glitter and stickers for her toes, but opted for a more "traditional"pink for her fingernails. She then was led to her haircut where she sat in the airplane chair, which the kids are now convinced we need at our house, and shown a Barbie Rapunzel movie. She got a really nice haircut complete with a headband braid!
We had a wonderful time and the kids enjoyed themselves immensely! The ladies at the salon were great with the kids and, once we recovered from the "bumpy" beginning, it was a pleasurable experience for everyone! Thank you Wild Child Salon and Spa for taming my children's hair and behavior (at least for a couple hours)!
