Boys with long hair

my 5yr old has never had a haircut, first it was because I couldnt bear to part with his curls, then when I got the courage when he was three he said he liked his hair and didnt want it cut. I decided it was his hair, let him cut it when he wants, well, at 5 he told me he NEVER wants his hair cut, only his bangs. We are Hindu, and lots of men that follow Lord Shiva never cut theirhair. How many others out there have long haired bots?

  • Well, my son's hair has never been that long but he usually grows it out in the winter and then I buzz it all off in the summer because he sweats so much.

    This was him at 5 after the first time he chose to grow it out.  I thought he looked adorable.

    This was him last month at 9.  This is how his hair normally is in the winter.  He usually waits until it gets to his collar to cut it but wanted it done a couple weeks ago so it's short now.  Most of the boys in his class have buzzed hair.

  • My ds's hair grows like a weed and I have it cut about once a month. He has a standard boy cut.

  • My oldest has long hair. I have always believed that it is their hair and they can do what they want with it. My oldest has had a mohawk, shaved head, and now it is long. My middle child also hair on the longer side although he likes to get his cut.

    I think it is great that you let him do what he wants with his hair.

    Good Luck!

  • I have three friends that have boys with long hair, I think it's great! :) Personally, my son has short hair (he's three), he asked for haircuts, probably because his sister do. However, it is still his choice, if he wanted it long, would let him.

    Btw, your son is adorable!

  • I say good on you Momma for not giving in to the typical boy cut. As long as it is taken good care of then great.
    My 5 year old get a shorter cut that his dad maintains for him.....deciding when and how to get it cut. If I had it my way it would be longer.
    Its not worth fighting over so I let him do his thing.
    Your boy is handsome!
