These dudes are adorable!

 

My 9 year old son has longish hair and doesn't want it cut. My 21 month old daughter, even though she has a decent amount of hair and it curls out from her hat, often gets mistaken for a boy...maybe because she usually has a boyish jacket on...

So glad to see other long haired boys on here, so cute! This is my 5 1/2 year old son Nathan or Natedog as we lovingly call him. He's always had long hair, the way people act around us as if they've never seen a boy with long hair before. I refuse to conform, LOL!  Pictures are right above this post, still trying to figure this site out!

i LOVE seeing pics of other long haired boys.

We've left it up to DS when and how he wants his hair cut.  His first hair cut was at 4.5.  It was waist length by that time.

Before the haircut

After the Haircut

(personally i thought he looked more feminine after the cut then before)

Now:

Yes, he's got some attitude.  LOL

He does want his hair cut again, short.  He also wants some red, gold, and black streaks added.  

(sorry for the multitude of photos, i can't really help myself)

 

Styles: when he was younger, i'd give him a Pebble's style pony on top of his head with just his top hair.  OR I'd clip it to the side with a brown or black clip or bobby pin. He'll wear hats, but not all the time.  He does use his hand to push it out of his eye, it doesn't seem to phase him at all.  I don't brush his hair very often.  Usually for big events (piano recital)  He doesn't get tangles very often, i do work 'em out.  We wash with Burts Bees (for now, almost out, but will get a different kind when that happens) when his hair gets dirty.

 

I can post younger pics if anyone wants, for the hair styles.  :)  

LOVE seeing all the boys with long hair.  Awesome!

Ahhhh I love the long-haired boys!!! They are all so beautiful! Our Izzy Rae is 2.5 and has never had a haircut (but I trim him bangs). My husband has long hair too.

Both of my boys have had long hair, but one has always kept his long.  Here he is at 3-ish:

Here's a pic of him (on the far right) at 7:

His hair has been the same style all along, long and loose.  When he was in karate he would have to wear it in a ponytail, but for the most part I can't even get him to tuck it behind his ears.  He likes it to flow. :)

 

It gets so hot here in southern OK because he has SO MUCH HAIR.  A tight ponytail is almost 2 inches thick!

I LOVE this thread!!! So adorable! We had to cut our sons hair recently becuase he would throw a HUGE fit everyday when I would comb it. Now we are hoping to grow it out, its RED! Didn't see any red heads on here!

This thread is seriously making me feel SO MUCH BETTER. Jewish tradition says 3 years they get their hair cut. 

Here's a pic at our wedding. (Civilly married 2006, had a Jewish wedding this May.)

I get SO SICK of people thinking he's a girl. Yes, his hair is long, yes he's wearing a necklace, but DUDE, he's in camo pants most of the time (I like to be deliciously ironic and put him in a Dr Seuss shirt with camo pants LOL). But not sick enough to cut it. 

Once he's 3 we'll cut it, but not short short, it'll just be a trim, IF he lets us. I asked him today "do you want your hair short? ' he yelled "NO MAMA"

This was the day my DS got his first (and only) haircut to date.  He loves to help his Papa use the clippers on his head and really wanted a haircut to get his bangs out of his face.  I was getting sick of using barrettes and ponytails to keep it all out of his face through the windy desert spring here.  It was down past his shoulder blades when wet, and just everywhere otherwise.  We cut it, thought it was adorable, then wanted to undo it and have his curls back!  That was about four months ago and we are well on our way back to the long curls (although now it is less flyaway and thicker).  We'll see how it grows in!

I love this thread, it is great to see other boys who are so adorable with long hair.  DS is 5 (almost 6) and we trimmed his bangs when he was 20 months and regretted it!  No haircuts since then!  He wants it to grow to the floor.  He gets called a girl a lot, but I just correct them if I will ever see the person again or ignore if it is just a stranger.  DH thinks it will start affecting him adversely if he keeps getting called a girl.  I think he will just learn how close minded people are and that will make him a more open minded person.  We do have combing issues, but if I time it right, not a big deal.  Just can't wait until the last minute and get in a rush to go somewhere.  Works fine if he is busy doing something and I just brush as he plays or sometimes I tell him a story while I am brushing.  Here is his pic - don't know how to embed a pic so here is  link:

We've had a LOT of luck with combing issues  by mixing his baby shampoo with some conditioner. Its gone from toddler dread locks daily to I can finger comb it and he's good. Also,  you can make "no more tangles" by mixing a couple of TBS of conditioner in water, shaking it up in a spray bottle. 


And seriously? it'll affect him a LOT more adversely if you cut it against his wishes. Trust me. i STILL resent my mother for not letting me keep my hair longer than chin length as a kid. And I'm a chick! Just tell people if they make ignorant statements "ask him when he wants to get his hair cut. Its his hair, his choice"

Long hair on little boys can be so dang cute! My son always hated hair in his face, so his never got more than shaggy with some curls around the neck. But it does bother me when parents keep their boy's hair long after the boy repeatedly requests a shorter style. My son just finished up his year of preschool at a play-based school with a really great mix of parenting and family styles. One 4 yr old boy had gorgeous blond curly waist length hair. His mom LOVED his hair and it did look cute when it was maintained. Thing is, she almost never ran a comb through it and rarely pulled it back. It was usually a tangled mess, which is understandable because he's 4 and didn't want to sit to have it combed. The boy hated his hair, repeatedly begged his mom to please bring him to cut it, and once tried to cut it himself causing the teachers a small amount of panic lol. He felt it was constantly getting in the way, making him hot and sweaty, it would get accidentally pulled throughout the day, and the maintenance aspect drove him to tears. The mom refused and basically gave him a guilt complex about it, that he would be so disappointed if he cut it, that it looked so cute, that she liked it that way and he'd make her sad if he cut it, etc. Our boys played together a lot, so I saw this interaction first hand many times. I felt so bad for him. I tried to talk sense into the mom who was a good friend of mine at the school, but she was taking a very selfish stance on the issue (it should be mentioned that she has a bit of an anxiety disorder and I almost felt like she kept his hair long because she couldn't handle the change). On the flip side though, if you have a little girl with long hair who begs for it to be short, I say "why not?" It's only hair, it will grow back, and it's important to allow kids some level of control over their own appearance.

Once kids are old enough, probably close to 3, I totally agree let them chose. If they don't like it its easy (though may take time) to change. My childhood my hair went from long to short and back again! And I still do it as an adult! My son right now is too young to chose, so we've kept is mostly short, but are hoping to grow it out. I hope he likes it and wants to keep it!
