I am seriously mourning my sons haircut.

I asked for a few weeks off the length and they’ve cut off about 3 months worth. It’s so much shorter and I’ve been crying my eyes out. sad

I know that may not sound like a lot but it is. He looks like a different boy.

I’ve been awake all night and feel sick about it.

He’s 6 by the way.

Mmmm that’s quite an extreme reaction

It’ll grow back!

This is an over reaction. It will grow very quickly at that age and look great in a few weeks.

What does your son think?

DownUdderer Sun 19-May-19 10:20:49

This seems like an over reaction

You've been awake all night and feeling sick about it? Are there other things in your day to day life that make you feel that way?

His hair will grow back in a few weeks.

It's hair, just hair! Hair grows for goodness sake. Using time as a measurement for hair length is quite unusual though. Quirky!

Being awake all night seems a bit of an overreaction! It'll grow back again in a few months. Maybe be a bit more specific next time as 'a few weeks' growth is pretty open to interpretation. Ask for cm amounts instead or show them where you want it cut to.

When he is 13+ he will have all sorts of silky haircuts and you wont really be able to stop him. Plus he will look very different during/after puberty. Get used to his appearance changing now would be my advice. They dont and cant stay adorable, chubby, cute little boys forever, unfortunately, and not much beyond 7/8 anyway.

This can't be a serious post? You've been awake all night over a boy's haircut?

I mean this kindly OP but get a grip!

FrancisCrawford Sun 19-May-19 10:22:48

So about 1.5 inches shorter?

That will grow back in no time.

NeverTalksToStrangers Sun 19-May-19 10:22:50

Did you really ask the barber/hairdresser for 3 weeks worth of cut?? That is very random. confused

DrinkSangriaInThePark Sun 19-May-19 10:22:53

Massive irrational overreaction.

Is there something else going on? Not normal or acceptable really -think of all the parents who are going through hell with serious problems with their children. I don't usually say things like that but really, count your blessings. It's a haircut.

Is there something else going on in your life, as this seems like a over-reaction. Staying awake all night and feeling sick are not normal reactions to something like this. Mild disappointment and annoyance yes, but saying your son looks like a different boy is a bit concerning. Do you have someone in real life you can talk to about this?

Parker231 Sun 19-May-19 10:23:13

Over reacting? It’s hair, it will grow back. Why would it make you feel sick and keep you awake at night?

This is a very extreme, borderline hysterical, reaction. It's a hair cut. He didn't get his ears chopped off.

LoafofSellotape Sun 19-May-19 10:23:28

It'll grow,it's not permanent,does he like it?

Singlenotsingle Sun 19-May-19 10:23:44

Haven't you got anything more important to worry about? In a couple of weeks it'll all be back to normal.

calpop Sun 19-May-19 10:24:00

silly not silky (looking at you 15y old ds, with last year's "I must have curtains"

PortiaCastis Sun 19-May-19 10:24:28

What does your ds think as it's his hair ?

alwaysreadthelabel Sun 19-May-19 10:24:49

Who asks for a haircut in weeks?????? Surely its cm or inches.

Stiffasaboard Sun 19-May-19 10:25:05

I only hope this is all you ever have to keep you up all night in tears OP

Absolutely ridiculous

BuildABridgeAndGetOverIt Sun 19-May-19 10:25:05

Oh for fucks sake get a grip.

What a ridiculous response to a hair cut. Also stupid to have tried to measure a length by using a unit of time. Jeez.
