Baby Mullet

Hey, regarding children with long hair: what do you do during the growing-out phase?

I mean, I expected the straggly bangs,

even the wispy over-the-ear goofiness,

but I did not plan on the back growing much faster than the front.

Lula is sporting a serious baby mullet. Do I let it go, or do something to address it?

I'd let it go a while longer so you can see how it behaves and design the haircut accordingly.

Then again, my child has no hair so... [shrug].

I don't think it looks bad, but then Lucy had the same hairdo as Carol Brady for quite awhile and I just let it go.

I suppose you could have the back hacked off giving her more of an intentionally short cut. Just a thought.

that depends - have you any large rice bowls around the size of Lula's head?

Eh, we've had way worse baby mullets than that around here. I don't know what to do with them. Big shiny Christmas-present-type bow on top to distract?

You eventually have to cut off that layer because the shorter hair doesn't ever catch up, but... I don't know, I hate to make my baby balder than she already is. But that my be my own neurosis.

When in doubt gel or mousse the hell out of it. Make it spikey and punk.
