Haircut help! For a 2 year old girl

My daughter is 2.5 and her hair is still quite thin.  It's very hard to manage, it tangles easily and is always in her face(won't keep barettes or hairties in) and she ends up wiping food and junk in it.  It often seems dry, I've tried a few kid shampoos and they make it look and feel very straw-like so I use adult shampoo/conditioner on her to try to make it easier but it is still difficult.

Anyway, I want to cut her hair but I'm not sure how. I see some really cute short styles on girls but they often have much thicker hair or curly hair.  I don't want to give her a terrible haircut but I need to do something!  Any advice?

Here are some pics of her hair now.

Here is one from last year when it was shorter.


I'm thinking maybe like a bob, shorter in the back and maybe thin bangs?  Before when her bangs were cut they were cut wrong and the hair was cut all the way to the back of her head(if that makes sense) and I definitely want to avoid that again!

Light layers are supposed to be good for thin hair. It helps control it better.

I have to say, I HATE the bob with bangs that everyone gives to toddlers because they don't want to deal w/ hair issues. I call it the Dora haircut. lol

My kids have crazy hair for a while that ends up w/ food in it and in their faces. I wait until their hair fills in more and we see what it's going to "do" before we do any cuts.  My oldest had the Dora haircut  and i look back at the pictures and cringe.

For a haircut, I would not recommend that you do it yourself. For boys, shaving their hand always comes out with even ends. Try to consult a professional. The less you have to come in for a haircut, the more you save. My rule of thumb is to go to a hair saloon no more than 2x a year. For me, that means to get a haircut that is easy manageable and low maintanence. Just a thought. Another thought is to try to outgrow her bands so that they'd be part of the rest of the hair rather than being in her face, especially if she is trying to eat. Just a suggestion. Whatever you decide to do, she'd be cute no matter what.
