    Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many options out there
    that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thank you!

    Any length longer than the hair on top of the head qualifies as a mullet.
    And with younger children, avoid using the term "haircut"-the idea of cutting may be
    distressing to them. It is better to choose the jewelry which fits your face shape
    and hairstyle.
