I LOVE boys with long, golden curls. But I am obviously biased, (see my DSs hair in my profile pic )
Yeah, its in his eyes now, but I'm holding out cutting it until it gets to his shoulders, and we can tuck it behind his ears. We use hats a lot to keep it out of his eyes, and he just started to let me put clips in it when we are in the house.
I have trimmed the back a few times, because it starts to look like a mullet! Thankfully, my husbands only complaint about his hair, is the in the eyes thing.. but we solve it like I said. Yeah, sometimes people think he is a girl. Sometimes I ignore it, sometimes I politely correct them. I dont think its a big deal.
I love his curls too much to cut them. And I love the color of his hair, I have NO idea how he ended up with this hair. I have stick straight dark hair, and so does my DH. Not that you can tell from my DS, but my DH is part Japanese, and had coarse textured hair on top of it being really dark. So I dont think DS is going to have these amazing blonde curls for very long, and I'm going to let them be while he still does!
Edit to add a very recent photo of my DS's curls. I am trying to 'train' the front to eventually tuck behind his ears, and you can see how different his hair is from mine!
