My 5 y/o wants a mohawk WWYD?*ETA* *ETA2*how wholesome were the 80s REALLY!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
And he wants to have it be red/white/blue... Im ok with the mohawk not sure on the coloring part. He has dark hair so I would have to bleach it... Thoughts? What would you do?


ETA: thanks for the ideas for the color ladies! My hair was pink when he was born and I have had various colors since so I am ok with him expressing himself that way. And like some other moms have said its just hair. Its going to get cut at the end of summer anyway.

ETA2: what started as a care free convo about hair coloring products has turned into a debate about how wholesome the 80's were... I feel a title change coming on...

This. My son has really dark hair and wanted a color Mohawk so we bought the colored hair gel. That worked. I don't know if they have white but they do have red and blue. That way you don't have to bleach his hair.

Quoting rokai:

I'd say yes on the Mohawk no on the colors.

he's young, mohawks on little boys are adorable imo and if you bought cheap spray in colors you could just wash it out

I'd say yes to the mohawk, no to the colors. My son has a little faux-hawk every once in a while, it's great because when it's not spiked up it just looks like a "normal" haircut.

I would use hair DYE I would use hair stain. There is this called Manic Panic. It's a hair stain. They sell it at Sallys and hot topic. Works pretty good. I have dark red hair and I use the blue without bleaching.

If he really wants the colors go and get the colored gel for his hair, this way it isnt permanent.
