|Check out that hairdo, would you? My mom insisted I have a pixie cut for much of my childhood. And, like most kids, I wanted exactly what I didn’t have: long hair and brown eyes. Why the short hair? Well, I was quite good at sniffing out hidden shears. On one occasion, I snipped a chunk of hair off the top of my head. I have no doubt I was using Westcott scissors. The company dates back to the 1800s, and those scissors cut like a dream! Because I was quite crafty, I hid the snipped hair behind the couch so no one would know. Hello! Would no one notice that a big hunk of hair was missing from the top of my head? Yes, my mom was mortified. In my defense, I was simply curious. After all, I’d watched my mom get her hair cut plenty of times!

PS: Just to clarify, the scissors I used were from the 1900s! 🙂
