Did/do you cut your son's hair?

My SO has long hair and doesn't want to cut our son's hair. His dad has long hair too.

I would rather him not be mistaken for a girl and don't mind if he keeps his hair long when he is older and can decide for himself.

Did you or do you cut your son's hair?
Is it wierd not to? Do you think it is trashy looking not to?

  • My husband and his dad, and all of dh's uncles all have long hair. I cut my son's hair because he asked for a hair cut. We left it longer for a long time, but when he was in kindergarten, he asked for a cut.
    My husband has recently started cutting his hair for work, so now it is short.

  • I started trimming my son's hair at a year. He's had it clippered ever since,and he's 9.
    IMO boys with long shaggy hair are trashy. A cut that is styled longer is fine.

  • I always cut my son's hair. Also my daughters' hair. It is too expensive to get little kids' hair cut at a salon. And I did a good job.

    Long hair is NOT a good look on a boy. nope.

  • my dh wears his hair pretty short and has taught himself to cut it (because he couldnt find a barber that he found to be consistent) so now he just give ds the same haircut as daddy - i do think it is normal of your dh and mine to want their sons to be like them. long hair is okay as long as it is trimmed into some style.
