I have two kids, Son 19 months, and daughter 3 1/2 yrs. While my daughter was eatting breakfast my son had a diaper emergancy, so I had to rush to clean him in the bathroom. Now, my kitchen is off limits, and the doorway has a extra high baby gate. There is a breakfast bar, but I dont keep stools or anything near it because my daughter is a climber. About 3 ft from the bar is the table, and some how she probably climbed on it, scrambled to the bar, and got out my scissors from behind the drinking glasses. She is WAY too observant. I cut my sons hair last night and she must have seen where I put the scissors, and decided to cute her hair!!!
I was almost crying when I came in to put clothes on my son (was gone MAYBE 5 minutes at most) I saw her and was freaked out she could have cut herself!! I didnt see any blood, so after throwing the scissors on top of the fridge (seriously THREW them… I am under 5′, and freaked) I started combing my hands through her hair looking at the damage. All the while my daughter is telling me sad “but Im pretty now!” She cut off a whole side of her bangs and even a couple locks of hair behind it. It almost looks like she buzzed a chunk out. Now that the inital worry and seeing she is fine, I realize, my weddin gis in 5 weeks!! I have been combing her hair and found a few okayish styles to cover it, but what about the wedding?? SHe has BEAUTIFUL long curly blonde locks, that she hates anything clipping or messing with it, other than pony tail holders.
I am personally againct hair extensions, but they have clip extensions I might be okay with for just the one day if need be, but I have no idea if it damages the real hair or scalp.

How about a cute wide head band? I don’t think it’s a big enough deal to actually get clip on extensions. She’s a little kid, and little kids do these things. Plus, for the rest of her life you’ll have a funny story about her – you can show your wedding album to all her friends and boyfriends. LOL.

I also vote for wide head band.
As terrible as this sounds…I would welcome an unexpected hair cut! My daughter has WAY too much hair!

Oh you poor thing! I think every parent has had to deal with an unexpected haircut at some point. I recall giving myself and my brother a haircut once when I was 5, and I think it traumatized my mother for years. Here is a possible solution. I see etsy seller, punkymonkeygifts made this. You may be able to come up with one that matches her flower girl outfit.

I agree with BackyardLoveBird! It will not be anything more than a cute and funny story.

I agree with the headband

Hat? Bonnet? Kerchief? Flowers?

all these options are great! the headband would be very cute as long as she kept it on and extensions would be cute but more pricey. is run to sally’s and see what they have up there for clip on hair. maybe you could do the band and extension and give her a curly bang thing.

Maybe I should start practicing with headbands… humm… she usually pulls them off with in seconds. She hates all girly things other than tutus (couple days ago she had her “cars” t-shirt and a tutu on at the same time while playing with her boy cousins.)
With the extensions, I agree, but Fiance said it was a back up idea. His sister gets them, so I dont think he realizes why I think its odd for my 3 yr old. Her plus, you cant see it well because of how light her hair is (thank goodness) but the bald patch is about 3″ but 3″ circle. I dont even think if I wanted to, I could clip them TO anything. Right now a little gel, and a side pony is covering it well enough. Its just hard with all the ideas in my head of her looking like a little princess (At lest until she finds a mud puddle)

First things first, you or a professional need to get her hair evened out, even a headband will fall out of her hair at your wedding, so her hair needs to be tidy for the eventuality.
a common bang style in the 50s was super short, I say go for a 1950’s style!
As for what it would look like:

I know it’s a disaster for right now, but if it helps, you and your daugher will probably find this very funny when she’s older (or around her wedding!!) <3
Good luck. I like the idea of the short bangs, 1950s style!

OMG! You must be going nuts! Pretty little thing!
Maybe a feather headband, or wide headband, a sash in her hair? Bow? Ribbon?
I hope you find something that helps!! xo

HA HA – sorry, I know it’s probably not funny to you, but I had to laugh because I (like others) cut my own hair when I was like 4.
I did it at night and my dad came in to wake me up and found hair all over the floor. He asked a few questions, then ran out of the room to call my mom to find out what to do. I thought I had done a great job! My parents on the other hand, did not. They rushed me in for an emergency appointment with the hair stylist.
I’d say take her into the stylist and see what she suggests. A cute headband or something might cover it up and she may be able to cut it into a cute style that will work.

I had to laugh. My son cut my daughter’s hair years ago. (They were playing barbershop. : ( Pre-school picture day was the next day! The pre-k teachers just laughed and told me it was common for preschoolers to cut their hair. I had to do a combover style. I didn’t pre order pics. I was so upset. But… the proof turned out niceley. The photogs don’t get a close up like you did. From a distance people will hardly be able to tell your daughter’s hair is cut. Just do something simple and something that she will keep on her head (or she won’t notice) because if she pulls it off, it will defeat the purpose. If I were you I’d do some sort of combover and hold it with a pretty (and very lightweight, hardly noticable to her) clip or bow. (Hopefully she won’t pull off the clip.)

I feel like you will look back on this memory and love it later on. This is pure photo gold.
So there is a weird haircut on the flower girl/your daughter, what really matters is that you are Fiance are getting married.
Personally, I want to remember the day exactly how it happens. Not just a perfect rendition of it. Remember this time. It will be the best.
