My daughter has asked if she can get her hair highlighted.

What age do you think is appropraite for this. She is a real girly girl. She recently started wearing a training bra, she has asked to get her eyebrows waxed, she wants her hair highlighted, and she wants to go get her nails done. What age do you think this is appropriate? She is 6, she will be 7 the first week of May.

I would let her do it now. If it gives her self confidence. My 13 year old sister committed suicide from strict parents. Id rather have a kid with high lights than a dead child. Its not going to hurt anything. So I say go for it!!!

I agree. I really do not want to let her do it at all. She does not get any of this from me. I do not wear make up, do my hair or nails. I am not sure where she gets it from. I do not want to limit her decision making but she is only 6.

I would take her for mani/pedis but leave it at that. Once she hits high school I'd consider nails, haircolor, whatever.

High school would be my minimum age, but I would hope she would wait longer.

Thanks ladies, that was what I was thinking in my head but I told her to ask daddy because I didnt want to be the bad guy. I thought he would say no. Well he told her yes. So now I have a six year old that wants to already color her hair.

I would prefer to get her clip ons or a wig rather than ruin the natural beauty of her hair.  I started letting dd decide her hair style  at age 5.  Nails we do any time at home so she has a pretty deep pink on her fingers. Eyebrows I have not touched and may not until closer to 11.  She will be 7 next month.
