Re: Youth and their appearances

See, that's why I'm confused by it.  At first I thought they were showing off how much they paid, but the one on the bus the other day said $3  Hahahaha!

Re: Youth and their appearances

[quote]Has it gone too far[/quote] i wanted to revisit this thread as today, i was approached by a parent asking where i had my mini me's hair weaved. inside of me there was an inferno raging. not just an inferno....add my PMS to the equation to cop a visual of how mad i was. so i took a moment to gather my thoughts and my reply was, "oh how sweet, thank you! and i would love to validate your assumption of such with a name and number of a good stylist. however, my daughter's hair is naturally blonde and the streaks you refer to as "weaved" is from the sun. i cannot fathom why any parent would tell or send a message to their child that their hair color isn't right or that their hair is not good enough as it is so let's go dye it honey so i can make you the child i really want that you are not."  - - then i stepped back a bit just in case she decided to clock me one. i was pleasantly surprised however, when she decided to get a closer look at mini me's hair, then apologized. i did feel bad for her child....she was present the entire time. 

love your child for who they are. let them evolve into who they will be naturally. if it is a situation whereas the child is an actor, model, or equivalent and the script or photo shoot calls for a change in length, color, or style, then the dynamics change of course.

Re: Youth and their appearances

Oh 2na I can totally relate to this. My daughter has some real blonde natural highlights in her very dark brown hair. And it would always amaze when I would take her places as young as 6 and people would ask me if I highlighted her hair. I was not as diplomatic as you were however, I would give them my "Are you F*ng Nuts Look" and tell them "Their nautral she's only 6 I wouldn't have her hair colored! Of course I did let her get pink highlights this year (age 12 3/4......lol) And after literally a week or two she wanted them to be gone! I told her she had to wait a few weeks before we could have them re-done or it would ruin her hair. Besides this will make her think harder before her next "wild" hair decision. (And the pink did look cute though not too over the top....lol)

Re: Youth and their appearances

How about my daughter when she was 4 up until now is being told that her hair should be straight. That would be her mom's parents. Awesome. So her mom even plays into it by straightening her hair. Then she comes tome ands asks me to straighten her hair and I then try to reinforce some sense of self worth by telling her that her curly hair is beautiful and she should love her hair the way it is. I mean damn, some women pay good money to curl their hair. (I'm on an anti-mom kick right now for lots of reasons) 

"I'm just like you only shorter."

Don't worry it's just one mom in particular not all moms.

LMAO, that's how it goes with hair, P.  Mine is pin straight, I'd almost give my left thumb for it to have some wave or body to it.  I spent years sitting in salon chairs shelling out money to make it wavy, curly, anything other than ____________.  Boyfriend has curls.  LOTS of curls.   He offers to trade every day.

LOL....LadyC!!!  You are so right isn't that always the way.  People always want the hair they don't have.  My daughter has the thickest hair  imaginable.  It is so difficult to brush the knots out.  She just wants silky straight hair....lol

Aaaahaha. I read this only minutes after calling my stylist to ask how much it would cost to get my hair permanently straightened. LOL!
