  • I let my boys chose their own hairstyle. My oldest likes his longer and the younger two don't care yet. As long as he take good care of his hair he can keep it as long as he wants.

  • My oldest two boys have almost shoulder length hair and I love it! As long as they keep it cleaned and brushed I'm ok with it. I used to have my second to youngest son's hair long and when my ex and I went into a custody battle that was the first thing he did was cut his hair. It was horrible because he loved it long, I love it, and it was bonding time when we would brush it and put it up.

  • I think it is great, I married my husband cause I fell in love with his long hair lol. I think if it is kept neat and clean and styled to suit the legnth then why not.

  • well, my son isn't even a year old yet, and I haven't cut it, but it is super long, lol!! It's so funny. He has as much hair as some 5 year olds, lol. I'll probably be cut it after his first birthday. I'd wait, but it's at the point where it's getting into his eyes. :)

  • I think if it has good style it's fine to leave it long, But you little boy should never look like a little girl
