Mom Caves to Daughter's Desire for a 'Fauxhawk' | Video - ABC News
By Tenisha Mercer
After watching the story of the 6-year old who cut her hair off in a fauxhawk-- and some of the backlash that was later directed at her mom -- I wondered: Would you let your daughter cut her hair off? Dye it? Shave it one-sided?
Sure, hair grows back. But when it comes to black hair and little girls, that's as sacred as a cow as you are gonna get. You will get crucified when it comes to those topics; just look at Willow Smith and some of the comments she gets about her hair.
Without a doubt, we absolutely do project our hair perceptions onto our daughters. And often times, that means, telling them what to do with their hair -- whether that's slapping a relaxer in or not putting a relaxer in.
But, as easy as this may sound, hair does grow back. And, while this is definitely an age-old debate, what better time to experiment with hair than when they are young? It's not like they have a job where they can't wear purple hair. What's the worst that can happen?
Would you allow your daughter to cut her hair or do a "controversial" style?
