If your 6 month old ds had hair down to his shoulders, would you have it cut off?

Because I reeeeally dont want to but dh thinks he looks like a girl.

I was going for the surfer boy look

personally yes, I would. I like boys to be boys!!less chance of catching nits too I believe.

My ds has always had long blond surfer hair and he's 12 now!I love it and so does he.We had it cut about 6 months ago as I had a headlice fit and couldn't cope with the combibng but he is growing it back he just wasn't the same without it!Leave it alone

Its all dark and it spikes up on top. Looks like its been styled, lol.

god my nephew is 7 and he has really long hair

he has been encouraged by his mother

he is wanting to look like legolas from Lord of the Rings

he just looks like a hippy fool

you need to grow out of this now before you go down this road

listen to your dh

they are always right about childrens hair (not blinded by maternalism)

Oh god, dont want the Legolas look.

Was thinking more along the lines of Mr Depp length.

oh can't we see pics.

I love boys with long hair.
Is it all wavy and tousled looking (is that a word?!)

NbgsYellowFeathers Thu 22-Feb-07 12:04:24

hang on I'll link...

Loads of boys round here have long hair, I like it. One of mine has long, one short, their choice. I think an issue for you might be if your dh will feel proud of your ds, though. If he's uncomfortable with it , your ds may pick up on it, which would be a shame. Think I'd try talking to dh about his feelings, personally!

NbgsYellowFeathers Thu 22-Feb-07 12:08:01

here but its longer than that now

itsmeNDaveP Thu 22-Feb-07 12:09:06

I like it that length, but I think longer could be a bit, ummmmm, too much

itsmeNDaveP Thu 22-Feb-07 12:09:39

You don't have to give him a crew cut or anything so drastic

Jessajam Thu 22-Feb-07 12:10:33


IF you do get it cut...only a little trim to get it back under control, ok?

Aloha Thu 22-Feb-07 12:10:37

Yes, I would.

Aloha Thu 22-Feb-07 12:11:04

Cute baby btw! Just as cute with shorter hair.

NbgsYellowFeathers Thu 22-Feb-07 12:12:48

Yeah, i think its more the back thats the problem, although the top isnt as spiky now because its got longer so it pulls it down.

Should I do it myself or is that a recipe for disaster?

I wouldnt mind but dd's hair didnt start growing until she was over a year old!

FrannyandZooey Thu 22-Feb-07 12:13:26

It's up to you

My ds has preposterous hair and I love it

Maybe it is a bit startling on so young a baby? However I am of the opinion that if they can't have long daft hairstyles now, when can they?

noddyholder Thu 22-Feb-07 12:15:19

He is gorgeous!Leave his lovely hair with short he will look like every other baby He is very unusual looking as he is So cuddly!

lemonaid Thu 22-Feb-07 12:16:01

That photo is very cute! I might trim it a bit back to roughly the length it was there, because it looks so good like that.

IntergalacticDave Thu 22-Feb-07 12:16:26

Agree Franny.
DS1 is often mistaken for a girl, but he has such gorgeous soft curly blonde hair, I can't bear to cut it (although, I do sometimes trim it mo make it look a littl less mullety)

It wont be long before he is sporting ridiculous hairstyles in an assortment of horrenous colours, so I'm making the most of it while I can!

NbgsYellowFeathers Thu 22-Feb-07 12:17:35

awww thanks

have just realised, can you see all the other pics in my album?

Your wee boy is gooooorgeous! Cut his hair back to that length again - it's so cute!
