Here are the brothers pre-haircut, as a refresher.
MacGyver and Lord Byron, an intriguing pair.
Fortunately Alrik didn't have many hairs to cut …
… since it turned out he did not like the process.
It runs in the family, as you can see from Mikko's first haircut.
(I swear I didn't nick them with the scissors!)
After Alrik's performance, Mikko's not so sure he wants to go through with it after all.
Cutting Mikko's hair is like shearing a sheep. It's so thick it takes multiple passes just to get to it all. Even though the thickness is weighing down most of the curls now, I still shed a tear at cutting off any of the remaining loops and bends.
When I was done, he refused to sit for photos and told me I had done it all wrong — that he just wanted the front and sides cut. So, basically, he wanted me to give him the mullet. My bad.
It looked super cute, anyway. We snapped some surreptitious pics as we went to the $3 movie theater to see Wreck-It Ralph. We were worried how well Alrik would do through a whole movie, but he was transfixed — he ended up being quieter than Mikko!
(Yes, Mikko keeps insisting on bandages for face wounds.)
Alrik was not shy about showing off his new look.
A couple more stealth shots as Mikko helped us navigate Ikea.
Still two cute boys!
