DH really wants me to keep DS1's hair long. I love boys with long curls, but have not seen a lot of styles that look great for little boys with long, straight hair. I bet there are plenty of people with examples here on MDC! Show me your pictures to give me ideas!!

 

Thanks!

This is a great thread!! Everyone wants me to cut DS's hair but it's so beautiful that the though makes me want to cry. I'd post a pic of his hair for you but I'm on my iPhone, plus his haisis very shaggy.

I can't wait to see what others post!

How long is "long?"  I think the back of DS's hair is about to the tops of his shoulders, kinda like a long bowl cut (or surfer cut, as a friend so nicely put it).  It's longer than the hair of any of his male buddies (all around 2.5 yrs old), but it's not super long.  I've trimmed it a few times because I trim the front/bangs from time to time so he can see (!) and I wanted to avoid having super short front vs super long back.

 

ETA: Not quite to top of shoulders.

I'm not sure what your definition of long is... I don't think my DS's hair is that long, but my DH thinks it's too long, and he gets mistaken for a girl often by strangers (LOL) It's sort of like a bowl cut with layers and longer wispier bangs. I hate cutting his hair and I think it looks cute this way.

Momo123 -- that does look cute! My sons is growing out, I had to trim the bangs on the top, and last night, the part which would be side-burns, because they were so much longer than the rest. We'll see how this plays out!

 

Keep the ideas coming!

I don't have a toddler anymore.  Or a long haired boy for that matter, but my youngest didn't get his cut until he was 3.5. 

 

This is how he typically looked everyday.

love it! i love little boys with long hair! 

i tried to grow out my ds but we ended up shaving his head last summer because his hair was fine, thin and unruly. i told ex that i needed to use clips and ties and he said no, so i shaved it into a hawk. its back to its original length and we are excited to try growing it long now that ex understands the need for clips, he says to just use blue ones.

I loved picking up my son from daycare because the girls would all do his hair (and he'd sit for it) so he always had random hair clips and barrettes.  It was so cute!

not sure how to imbed those pesky photos.. sorry for the links!

do the rest of you get people endlessly calling your boy "she"? He can be all decked out in "boy" clothes.. one day he even had a shirt on that said something about being a boy.. and people STILL say "how old is she?" actually that time it was an old man and he was like "She's a girl, right?" I said, nope he's a boy.. and he said "Oh, how old is she? She's really cute!"
oh well, i just correct them and try not to make a big deal of it.

Ahhh!  I lurve long hair on boys! DS had beeeeyouuuuuuuuutifyl long hair until he got it all tangled in a toy last spring and we had to cut it.  We're growing it out again because I just hate short hair.  We're about half way back to long hair again.  It takes a long time!  I'll post pics when I'm on my other computer next time.

He is about 2.5 in the first having only ever had a trim of the initial mullet.  He's about 3.5 in the second... we started to keep it trimmed after it got so long.  He has an awesome natural part that we just went with. 

 

And then there is the sad tragic super short hair pic, just for comparison.  So sad.  We're about 6 months out from the short hair.  He still looks kind of goofy with in betweener hair.

Cute pics! My DS's hair looks a lot like your son's. It was a couple inches longer but then he asked for a haircut. (I always said I'd cut it when he asked, but was so bummed that he wasn't even 2yrs old when he did ask! But I just trimmed it a bit & he was happy, and we'll let it grow until he asks again.)

 

Anyway, yes, my DS is almost always mistaken for a girl (even when he's wearing typical 'boy' clothes)... I don't even bother correcting them unless it's someone we're likely to see again. It's the hair, apparently, according to what people have told me. Also if I put him in pigtails, he looks like a girl even to me, so maybe it's his baby face too. Oh well. I don't care, but I did care when an uncle who hadn't seen DS in a while sarcastically said, "Who's this GIRL? Tell Mommy to cut your hair so you can look like a boy." irked.gif

MadiMamacita, DS does get mistaken for a girl often by strangers even if he is wearing "boyish" clothes. I correct, but I personally don't care. But I do wonder if there will come a time when DS will want to have his hair short? My mom kept my hair short when I was little and I started to get self conscious around age 5 or 6 when people would still mistake me for a boy and I remember REALLY wanting to grow my hair long. As much as I love his longer hair, I don't want to force him. I guess I still have a few years left!

So cute!!  Before ds was even born I *knew* I was going to let his hair grow long!  BUT, my baby was born bald and now at 2 he still barely has any hair lol!  I still plan on growing it out but he'll probably be in high school before it's long and then he'll have his own opinions about how to style it :P 

 

Oh, and my bald baby has also been referred to as girl, some people are just clueless!

People always call my boys girls.  When ds1 was a baby, somebody told me he was too pretty to be a boy.  Like that changes his gender.  He was even mistaken for a girl a year ago because he (along with his entire class) had on a purple tie dyed shirt on a field trip.  People are just strange.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this thread!

 

We have been asked so much if our DS is a girl or boy.  I have been contemplating trimming his bangs due to his own frustration.  DH said he'd have a baby mullet so we let it ride and that lasted about a week.  Now he just pushes this bangs to the side.  DH hasn't cut his hair since DS was born... not sure when the boys will cut their hair.  DH cuts it when he is able to donate 14 inches!  I considered using some sort of product then decided I don't use any... why should he.

Do any of you use styling products on your little boys? My son has straight thick hair (or it seems like it will be thick). I like his hair long and shaggy but I hate the way his bangs hang straight down in his face. They're so cute when they're brushed out of his eyes but they won't stay that way. Just wondering if I could add some body to it somehow without it looking "styled."

same! with a pony tail I think he DOES look like a girl! and most people I dont bother correcting. I cant see how it makes a big deal if a stranger thinks he is a girl..

no, its in his eyes and i want to trim it sometimes but in DHs culture the godmother has to be the first to trim his hair, and she lives clear across the country so I think its going to be a while!

OT, but your son looks a lot like my daughter.  maybe you can't tell so much in this picture because they are smiling silly.  Lol.  Seriously handsome fellow.  He will be breaking hearts as they say.  Anyway, I dress DD in boy's clothes (what I would call gender neutral) when we go out, and i am always surprised by how everyone just assumes she is a girl with this hair style. 

 

Carry on with the cuteness.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the ideas!! There are so many great hairstyles. I'm feeling inspired!

 

Newmothermary, do you cut that style yourselves? Or go to a stylist? Looks hard to get all those wisps, but awesome!
