I was very worried when I had Macey that I would be tempted to give her the classic baby girl hairstyle. When I was pregnant there wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t see a baby with the fountain of hair coming straight out of the middle of her head. I have yet to see more than a handful of these babies on whom this style looks cute. I was left to wonder, what possess moms to do this to their child’s hair? Is baby hair so unmanageable that this is the only option? Can babies not stand to have hair on their forehead? As I prepared to have a baby girl I hoped that I would be able to withstand the temptation.
I can now proudly say that Macey never had to wear this style (expect for the picture and I did not take her out in public). I was actually never even tempted in the least to do her hair this way. I found a clip, headband, or even nothing at all worked best for Macey’s hair. Maybe moms do it because they just want to pretend their baby has more hair than they actually do. I suppose i’ll never know why so many moms succumb to the temptation, or maybe I’m the only one that feels this way. Am I alone in my opinion, please let me know what your views are on this topic.
Now, I don’t mean to offend any of my readers who have styled their babies hair this way. Your baby is probably in the small handful that actually looks cute with the fountain. = )
