As long as they take care of it, then yes to all. Even the mullet *shudder*

Hair colour in a younger child would not be permanent though. They can destroy their hair with permanent colour when they're teenagers.

Yes, as long as it is kept up and cleaned. When they start neglecting personal grooming, mom gets to intervene.

Re: S/O kids hair

DS 2 was born with a mullet and it's come and gone as he and his hair have grown. It's to curly in the back to do it anymore but I thought it was cute. Now, I would not purposefully cut a mullet. No mohawks or dyes as long as they are going to schools that don't allow them. A good education is more important than hair. As for length, totally up to them.

Re: S/O kids hair

Would you let your child:

Have long hair (boy) yes
Have short hair (girl) yes
Have no hair? yes (boy)
Have blue hair? Nope
Have a mohawk? Nope
Have dreads? Nope
Have a mullet? Nope

I should say that until they are old enough to pay for it and take care of it then the above would be my answers. After they can pay for it, etc then fine it's their dime and their hair.

I've got to agree on the hair color. I'm not big on the idea of permanent color on young 'uns...but DD is asking for "purple hair" for her 3rd birthday pics. I'm going to try for clip-ins, but I'd be okay with wash-out stuff, too.

Re: S/O kids hair

Have long hair (boy) If he wanted it
Have short hair (girl) If she wanted it
Have no hair? For a girl I'd be a little selfish and want to say no BUT if they showed it was what they actually wanted than yes.
Have blue hair? Yup
Have a mohawk? Sure
Have dreads?For sure
Have a mullet?lol no way

Re: S/O kids hair

my son and future children can do whatever they want to their hair. though if their young and want to dye it, i'd encourage a less permanent and damaging option like spray color or kool aid.
