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

Posted by   + Show Post

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'm not familiar with the chalk/streak what is it?


Quoting Lurion:

My 7yo likes to come along when I get my nails done and they'll paint hers too. No big deal for me. Fun mommy time. Or we'll paint them at home. 

I wouldn't let her do permanent highlights, but those hair chalk/streak things are ok by me. 

I'd say high school on highlights or hair color.

They put colored streaks in their hair--blue, purple, etc.. Washes right out. Get them at Justice, Urban Outfitters.

Why are you okay with this? Why are you letting her have a training bra? My dd is almost 5 and you should see the look on my husband and my face while we are reading this thread.

You do not want your child growing up way to fast. 6 years old.. she just hit first grade, she should be worrying about having nails painted and cute shoes


Oh she does. Her shoes have to match her outfit, her nails have to match her clothes. Her hair needs to be perfect. She is a very girly girl. And I dont want her growing up to fast. She got a training bra the other day because she thinks it is cool. I am having a hard time adjusting to that.

I don't see the huge deal. It's just hair, and it grows back!

Her hair is still to young..it shouldn't be process ed much like her it is still maturing. No good hairstylist should touch that.

I don't see the big deal with the training bra. It is under her shirt, no one knows she has it and it makes her feel older.

Inappropriate, take the mom stance and say "no"
She's trying to grow up too fast ( sexualizing to fast) and what attention do we know that brings?

If it's a few highlights it shouldn't be that bad. It's up to her mom. That's just my opinion.
