Carlin and Josie Chop Their Hair Off

Josie Bates, who turns 18 in August, is currently in cosmetology school. Did you know that she is the only Bates with naturally curly hair? When you see her with straight hair, it is because she has straightened it.

Both Carlin and Josie recently made major changes to their hair. These photos were taken just a couple months ago:

And here they are now, with their hair chopped off. The photos aren't that great, but you will see more of the girls' new hairstyles in the future. :)

  1. What cosmetology school is Josie attending? I hope it's a real one..accredited..not online. I hope she works in the "world". It's so encouraging to see these changes in the Bates Family. Jesus never isolated himself from the "world". He was/is right there with us and everyone who is needing him. He didn't just speak "church". Being in the world but not of it did not mean ostracize anyone who thinks differently than you. Good job Josie!!

    1. She's at The Crown College of The Bible in Knoxville, TN. It is a real, physical, accredited school and the school is advancing rapidly. They are wanting to add more skill degrees in the near future. :) I actually attend college with her. :)

    2. That's Fantastic!! Esther from the Bible won the King through a beauty pageant. I always liked that for some reason--LOL!!

    3. Maegan- This school's historical job placement and in-field placement rates are extremely low, according to the data shown on the TN Higher Ed Commission website. I hope you are able to find a job when you are done.

  5. Cute for both,and i'm sure less heavy and a bit cooler for summer temps. It must be over hot for the long thick hair that the older girls have like Michaela and Erin and Whitney.

  6. Cosmetology is just a fancy word for hairdresser/beautician and I'm pretty sure she's prob doing lots of hands on training no other way to do it, maybe she wants to set up her own salon someday

    1. If you attend a licensed school of cosmetology, you learn about more than just cutting hair, like applying make-up and doing manicures. And yes, it is very much hand's on.

  7. I love those promo pics you have of Josie & Carlin!! Why don't you post ALL of the promo pics?

  8. Chop their hair off? I don't think it's much of a change at all, just a really good trim. I thought they'd have cute shorter, bobbed hair from the headline.

    1. I was expecting the same thing!

  9. That is not chopped off. It is trimmed. Chopped would be a crew cut or a bob

    1. Josie clearly had several inches taken off. Can't tell from Carlin's picture. The hair is still long on Josie but looks great with a good chunk taken off.

  10. I hope they donated their cut locks to LOCKS OF LOVE - a wonderful cause to have wigs made for needy/cancer patients. If not I hope they keep it in mind for the future.
    Best of luck to Josie in a career in the field of cosmotology.

    1. Better check out locks of love was a fan until i found out they CHARGE the cancer patients for the wigs

    2. My friend was going to donate last week but found out that Locks of Love charged for wigs. Are you absolutely sure that's true?? My granddaughter donated 3 times a few years & more ago & we never heard that. Sad if true. I think there are a couple other places to send donated hair.

    3. Insurance pays for cancer wigs.

    4. I've donated my hair in Canada for cancer wigs. Each province has a place where you mail at least one foot of hair, uncoloured & not grey, and the wigs are provided for free. It's a fun challenge to grow your hair long enough to donate 12 inches of hair. I even know a teenage guy who did it on a dare lol.

    5. Carlin probably didn't cut enough off. I donated a couple of years ago and you had to cut off at least 10 inches.

      They use to or charge for the wigs. They recently did in the past two years or so.

  14. Their hair isn't considered a short haircut. It is still a long style.
