If you have joint legal custody then it probably has to be discussed, its not a big deal though, hair grows back so I would pick my battles

I generally side with the custodial parent. But if they had joint custody (and both parents were regulars in the child's life) then either one I suppose. It's hair, it'll grow back hopefully. As long as they aren't shaving the child's head as punishment to the other parent or the child is so young they can't tell you what they want.

I've never even considered asking my ex so much as his opinion about our son's hair or anything else for that matter.  But I have sole custody and he only has visitation and pays minimal support.  I would consider my husband to have more authority on the subject than my ex.
