Do your sons have long hair?

My 4 year old son has never had a haircut. He has long, red, ringlets. He is gorgeous, simply stunning! : ) He is a little rock star, too! He loves his hair. I wash it every night, use curling cream, anti-friz stuff and really take care of it. It isn't messy or yucky.

  • My nephew had long hair until he entered kindergarten, my sister was worried he's get it caught while playing and such. He was adorable with long hair and very few people mistook him for a girl. We are part Native American and in our culture looks at the act of not cutting a child's hair as an honor. If your son lets you comb it and his hair is healthy, I say let it grow :-)

  • I gave my 4yo son a mowhawk! And he has his ear peirced! You are the parent and until your child can tell you otherwise, you can pretty much do what you want. You don't have to listen to what other people say.

  • My son is 13 and has hair down to the middle of his back. My mom and inlaws want him to cut it. My husband and I say it is his hair. We feel there are more important things in his life to focus on. We won't borrow rebellion by saying no to something that inconsequential.

  • It's just hair. Have at it. People will judge you no matter what, unfortunately!. My husband took 3 of kids to get mohawks one day. They begged him to, so he did. One was our 16 year old daughter, the other 2 were our sons, in elementary school. The oldest son got upset at the fear of getting in trouble the next morning, at school, with some play coming up. But he didn't. But oh th e church ladies! One attacked me in front of everyone, includig my daughter: "You wouldn't have let her do that if you didn't have so many children." I laughed, and said "It's just hair!" And I did hold my ground on body piercings and tatoos as long as I could. but that's another story...

  • I think long hair on boys is really cute. As in I don't see why some people are so touchy about boys being nothing like girls. There was a woman at my church a while back who was convinced that it was practically sin for a boy to have long hair, it's all just stupid in my opinion, you should do whatever you want with your little boys hair providing that they're comfortable with it! and ringlets are so cuteee!
