TOPIC
Boys With Long Hair:  Yay or Nay? What do YOU say?

I say it depends….. but actually lean more towards yay.

About eight years ago or so I worked at a daycare center and there was a little boy named River (loved his name too) who had the most adorable shaggy cut shoulder length hair.  He was such a sweet, laid back, well behaved little boy and ever since then I have had a fondness for little boys with long locks.  I just think their so stinkin cute.  Just check out these adorable boys of celeb mommies – I just love it.

IF we were ever to have a little boy I am almost positive during his toddler years I would keep his hair long…  but I wouldn’t force him keep his hair long.  Once he would be old enough to communicate his own opinion on the length of his hair if he asked to have it cut shorter I would definitely do that too.  I think the length of a child’s hair isn’t really something worth battling over.  If my son wanted his hair long – that’s great.  Short?  Great too.  Shaved?  Fine by me.  Mohawk?  Go for it little man.

The only argument I could even see someone making against a little boy having long hair is that people might mistake them for a girl, but if their wearing boy clothes I don’t see that being a problem.  And as a mom I wouldn’t have a problem correcting people either – so no biggie.  I don’t even know how many times people have referred to my baby girls as boys and I really could have cared less.

So what are your thoughts?  Do you have a son with long hair?  Just think boys with long hair are stinkin cute like me?  Or the complete opposite?  Leave me a comment or link up and let me know!

    I didn’t cut my sons hair until he turned 2. BUT, he actually didn’t have a whole lot of hair and it was really cute, curly. When I did get it cut it was not yet hitting his shoulders even when straightened. And it bugged me to no end when people would mistake him for a girl, and yes it happened more than once. A lot of people don’t even look at their clothes, my son is always dressed like a boys boy (if that makes sense, I am not a fan of pink and purple shirts on my boys, just my opinion for my kids I don’t care what others do). He loves cars and trucks and all things boy so he usually ends up with something like that on his clothes somewhere. Anyways, from those experiences there is no way I would have a 5 or 6 year old with long hair like those pictures. If my son is 14 years old and wants long hair, well then he is old enough to decide for himself but before then, no way.

    We finally cut Corbin’s hair last month. He didn’t have a ton of hair due to his head being shaved at birth except the back which made him look like he had a mullet. I tried to trim the back to even it up but his hair is so fine and his head sweats so terrible when he plays hard that his hair always looked like a mess. So my husband was the one who suggested it was time for a hair cut. It was hard for me to do since we do our own hair cuts at home but I must say he looks totally cute with a buzz cut 🙂 Until I cut his hair people would ask me whether he was a boy or girl and he was always wearing dark blue or another boy color with cars or something else very boy on the outfit. People dont look at the clothes only the hair and faces.

    my son is 7 and has shoulder length hair. it’s so beautiful and shiny! i ask him every now and then if he wants to cut it but he always says,”not today”.he has had a mohawk and also shaved in the past but he always ends up growing it back out. i like to let him experiment a little and figure out what he likes.

  4. Marlene says:

    Boys with long hair I do not find cute and actually find it creepy. However, I am in favor of letting the child decide.

  5. Sarah says:

    I decided that my young boys won’t have long hair. We let one of our sons’ hair grow until he was 2.5 and then people started asking what “her” name was. Yep, that was that..

    All our boys have a similar haircut. A classic haircut. Nothing trendy, but nothing too uptight either. They are not allowed mohawks, long hair, or buzzed heads…. simply because I feel that image is important. Once they are old enough to make an educated decision (and understand the consequences of their actions) they can wear their hair how they like it, though.

    Right now all my littles are under 9 years old. I honestly can’t stand seeing little boys portrayed in certain ways (or little girl’s either)… think “gangsta” “biker” “punk” “goth” and “hoochie”. I just try to instill self-respect in my children, and having that type of style really doesn’t lead to much self respect.

    I think it looks cute on some kids, all depends on the kid. All of my boys have short hair, although the oldest has asked to grow his hair out…but then decided it took too long. I like the ease of care with short hair on boys- and I can cut it myself.

    We didn’t cut Liam’s hair until he was over 2, and it was pretty long…he was mistaken for a girl many times. Dad said that’s it, time for a cut. lol.
