Perhaps I didn't make my self clear on the issue of my daughter cutting her hair which has been going on since she was 3. I might not be the brightest bulb in the box but I know enough to keep the scissors out of reach. DUH! When it became obvious that she would use anything, we began watching her every move. The last time, It stayed that way and we waited for it to grow out so we could have it professionally done. The salon was a reward for it being over six months since the last time she cut it. However, as some suggested so frankly that I should watch my child better, I thought I might point out that it happened at school this time. This is the first time she has cut it anywhere but home. Could this be a sign that because we were watching her she had to do it at school? Should I be concerned about supervision at school? Should I allow her to use scissors when supervised, or cut off the privilege all together?

Just supervise her, don't take them away completely. Yes, you should be somewhat concerned about it at school too.

Read books about haircuts (which sets the tone for letting her see that the characters in the book let a beautician do it) and encourage her to grow her hair out by getting a new hairbursh/hairbow/clips etc. Go out of of your way to tell her how pretty her hair now that she is not cutting it.. You can see the books/hairbrushes (there are some really cute ones!) and other hair stuff here. http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=10
