Do boys have to have fringes?!

I cut a fringe into my DD's hair when she was little and have regretted it ever since as I hate trimming it every few weeks. DS (only 10 months but we seem to have made another hairy baby!) has his hair down into his eyes already and I'm wondering what to do. I'd love to lave it and not have to trim it like I do his sister, but would that look weird? With a girl you can grow a fringe longer and tuck it behind her ears/sweep to one side etc., but is this an option for boys? I quite like longish hair on boys (he's currently sporting a lovely 1970s look ) and I'm not at all one of those 'pink for girls, blue for boys' people, but I can't help thinking that boys would look weird and just too girly without fringes - what do you think? Does anyone have a son without a fringe and it looks ok? His hair is fairly fine and straight, btw, so we can't do the lovely curly surfer-dude look which is fine without a fringe...

Hmmm..not to sure....what I mean to say is Im not to sure what you mean by fringe..?

Ds (16 months) has got very curly hair so its got a bit of length to it iykwim..Its not long and the curls are prob to the top/back of his neck. He has a side parten (sp..?) and his fringe is swept to one side...So yes I guess he does have a fringe although its not cut across his forhead iykwim..

Is this what you were wondering..? hmm.

All of our friends with ds's tend to clip their hair v short iykwim...BUT we prefer a bit of length and so love ds's curls. grin

Boys don't need to have fringes. Mine does and i think its fine. He has fine straight hair too. but I know boys with centre partings in straight hair, and it can look quite funky.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just don't do a number 2 all over grin

Thanks both of you. I think I'll leave it for now then and see if I can grow it long enough to sweep out of his eyes, then if it looks daft I'll just cut a fringe in then. I just didn't want to go to the bother of trying to grow it long if it's going to look daft and I end up cutting a fringe in straightaway so all the growing would've been for nothing, iyswim

Sssh, by a fringe I mean a section of hair which covers the forehead and if not kept trimmed would cover your eyes.

Actually, everyone agrees that DS is the spitting image of Richard Hammond (that's why he's so cute ) so maybe I ought to Google some images of him and see if he's ever not had a fringe

don't worry tinkjon grin
imo I would grow the fringe and let it swep to the side..quite funky imo and if not..cut it. Yeah I know growing for nothing BUT it doesn't take so long for it to grow iykwim..
