O.K. whenever you read Old Testament prohibitions against things there is often a reason God gave those commands. The people of Israel lived amongst pagan cultures. By that I mean paganism was dominant and often inforced by governmental measures. This is a hard concept for us because our society is very diverse religiously and mostly free to practice or not practice religion. There isn't a formal religion of the government. So God put laws in place to keep them from following the customs of the pagan people of that time. They were called to be set apart for God. So since we no longer have these issues we have to look at why God might see this as sin. Are you trying to make your little girl fit in? Is it a vanity issue? If not then I don't see the sin.
