I'm always in a twist over this one. I have two boys who's hair grows faster than you can say "boo". I invested in one of those clippers and I give a mean buzz cut - I mean, it's CUTE - I only use the 1 inch one too so it's not like they're in the military either.....but the cowlicks - OMG. About four weeks into it, they looked like they got electrically charged! I could spike it with gel or I could just let it grow long, but I went to a birthday party recently where it seemed like all the boys had that 70's long hair - and I was like "eh...I don't know." What do you like? Long hair for little boys (ages 4-7) or do you like a cute crew?
