It's not uncommon! Many children try it! My daughter cut her own hair...in grade two....the day before her school picture. Today, my four year old granddaughter Sandra came home from school with at least 4 inches (10cm) cut off the end of her braid. Apparently something sharp fell, close to her braid....and the piece that came off, landed in her back pack. A visit to the hairdresser has been scheduled for Saturday morning. My daughter waited until Sandra was in bed before laughing and sharing her story.

my son was four his sister three they were playing together then I heard no no Wobbie lisa does not want her hair cut I flew to their bedroom Robbie had got his little scissors caught in her curls no hair had been cut yet. thank Goodness I scolded my son Robbie and he said I have to have my hair cut all the time why does Lisa not have to have her hair cut. I told him little girls grew long hair and boys had short hair.

I was about 3 or 4 when I decided to cut my hair. I cut my bangs (they were the style for little girls back then) as far back as I could, and I also cut the hair on my big doll. Dolls with real hair were relatively hard to get at that time, but I received one for Christmas a few months earlier and I guess that I must have thought that her and I needed matching hair cuts. My mother still has that doll, with her hair do missing the bangs!
I do t remember ever cutting my hair or someone else's....but Sandra's mother cut her bangs.....down to an inch when she was about six....her hair was very thin and slow growing....I cried....to make it worse, she did it the day before school pictures....a friend who was a hairdresser made an emergency visit.
Don't feel bad laughing. My daughter told me is was almost impossible to keep a straight face as her earnest four year old explained that something sharp fell near her hair....and that h hair somehow fell into her (closed?) backpack. Once the child was in bed...photos were shared on Facebook as well as a lot of amusement and horror.

That's a funny story. What kids will say can keep adults laughing for a long time. Since she blamed something sharp for cutting the braid I'm a bit surprised she kept the piece. Is it long enough for the group's that collect hair for cancer patients? I sort of wonder whether a story was shared related to that
We think (unconfirmed) that hair donation was discussed at school. The pieces that were found in her back pack were not long enough. I believe they require 10 inches....the pieces in her backpack were around 4 inches long. I'm sure this story will be shard many times over the years. This is the stuff memories are made of.
