Should I cut my son's hair?

My one and only son is about to be 3 years old in July. I put locks in his hair and it is really long for his age. I keep it neat and clean but everyone said I should cut it off. I don't want to and my husband doesn't care.

  • Boys look soooo cute with long hair. What's the length of the hair?

  • Don't do it if u don't want to. Who cares what they think! If i were u i would only be worrying about if he hated it.

  • And wanted to get rid of the locks.

  • This was on Easter Sunday. He has locks but still put them into two cornrows with rubberbands to keep them from flying everywhere. @Princessbeth I just asked him and he said "Noah hair is fine" I never thought to just ask him. If he can tell what kind of happy meal he wants I guess he can tell me about his hair :)

  • The locks are cute, so cut it if he asks you to if not just keep the locks.

  • How long is the hair? If people make comments about him being a girl, then I would get it cut. Otherwise, it's your choice.
