Picture this: your ex-husband comes to pick up your daughter around 12 pm for a day of bonding. You figure everything will be normal as usual. He comes to drop her off around 8 pm. You meet your daughter at the door, and turn on the big light to see her smiling face when you end up seeing something totally opposite.
Two things are drastically different about her: her facial expression and her long, beautiful hair is HALF the length it was before she left this house. You call your ex-husband to ask why her hair was shorter, and he says his new girlfriend “cut and styled” her hair. Yes folks, your read that right – HIS NEW GIRL CUT HIS DAUGHTER’S HAIR?
What exactly would you do next?
I am actually shocked that this kind of thing happens a lot. There are loads of forums and Facebook discussions with furious parents who have sent their child away with the mother or father and the child comes back with a new, drastic ‘do’.
I remember MTV star from Teen Mom, Jenelle Evans freaking out when her ex’s new girlfriend cutting her son’s hair. Her ex’s only excuse was his girlfriend is a hairstylist. Is that an excuse, though? Let alone, that was her son’s first haircut, which is a moment the mother should have been a part of.
In this case, this true story is all over Facebook with a before and after picture of the daughter’s hair. Mom sent her daughter away with long, curly hair and got her back with half the length. The picture and story went viral within a matter of days.
So with that said what would you do if you were in this predicament? Should there be consent from both mom and dad before a child’s hair is cut or styled in any way? Comment below!
