My four year old son has decided he wants to be a long haired hippie child. How do I help him grow out his hair, while keeping it out of his eyes? Is there an intermediate haircut between a bowl cut and a long bob-type cut?
My son has fine, straight hair, with no discernable part. He would like to have long hair, down to his shoulders or beyond, like this
. His hair is currently growing out from a bowl cut, kind of like this
, but longer, actually in his eyes. I think he will get a part once his hair has enough length to have weight, but is there anything I can do in the meantime to help keep it out of his eyes?
We have tried barrettes and ponytail holders, both of which he loves, but they get lost on the playground almost immediately upon arrival at school. I have tried blowdrying to create a part, but I haven't been successful. I don't really want to put product in his hair, because I'm worried it will end up in his eyes or his mouth.
Is there an intermediate haircut I should give him? Is there a trick to growing your hair out without covering up your eyes or creating a mullet? If so, please send pictures.
