Tia Mowry has a gorgeous little boy, and much like other celebrity children, he has been through his share of critique and his parents do not like it because it has not always been positive.
If I were to be brutally honest on this one, I like to see little boys with a traditional low cut – as a parent, that is just my preference. Is Cree’s hair beautiful? Of course it is. Do I like the top knot style? Not on my son.
Tia Mowry’s followers on social media are pretty split: some are singing praises to Cree’s hair, whilst others are throwing out #shade and ridicule. On one hand I sympathize with Tia, but on the other end of the scale if you can’t take the heat, then get your behind out of the kitchen. Do not put your children on the internet and subject them to ridicule, especially when you as a parent are making the decisions.
After a few days of craziness, Tia finally responded with the following:
I am proud to have a SON that embraces his natural hair :). Hair length does not define your sex. Last I checked a penis and a vagina does. Pick up a book, educate yourself, and embrace cultures outside of your own and maybe you will see that there are PLENTY of MEN wearing top knots and MEN with long hair. Here’s a shout out to all the moms who have boys and girls with natural hair! Live ON!”
I understand Tia’s frustration; nobody likes to see their baby subject to ridicule. I don’t think the issue is about him having natural hair, but rather how it is styled. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but when it comes to children, I have the same response – leave them alone. Moreover, I have an even stronger feeling: don’t put your children out there to be judged.
Let us know your thoughts – please comment below.
Sevy James says
Lolol. So many issues in the world and people are focusing on his hair. He’s cute and his hair is gorgeous. #theend
Gabrielle Monique says

Pattie Armstead says
Cute kid but the style is girly.
Tarin Cee says
it’s her child. is anyone aside her and the father going to pay any of this child’s bills or pay for college or braces or soccer. Nope, so our opinion doesn’t better.
Deneen Majette says
NO need to defend.
Stacey Lawrence says
It’s not like little boys with long hair haven’t worn their hair similar to this before now. Anyway that’s her child and his hair isn’t hurting anybody and I promise you he could care less!
Taryna Alexandre says
Why is this even an issue? First it was Blue Ivy and now this. Why are people trying to tell children how to look and dress at such a young age? Leave them be.
Shearer Bridges says
TIA!!!!!!! You better tell them fools! Love your baby’s hair. #stylesforboys #naturalhair
Lyia Lynell says
Man if ppl dont leave her alone & worry about what is on their own kids head…we grow are boys hair like girls we put them in braids,twists,singles,put beads in them like little girls i seen little boys with 2 braided piggy tail but she put 2 buns & ppl get upset…its hair & she is doin his hair like a good mother wld
Hana Cheatom says
She don’t have to defend anything, it’s her child. People really need to get a life and stop trying to live those taken by others.
Natasha NaturallyBeautiful Thomas says
Wow, people have became so damn extra these days. My parents did this to my little brothers hair and this was the 1980s and they still looked like boys. It ain’t like they’re putting a dress or anything pink on him. Sad that people let hair define them who they are.
Debbie Parker says
Ppl just messy
Candice Bryant says
What’s understood between her and her household doesn’t need to be explained to anybody else period
Tara Anthony says
I put my son’s hair in a pony tail all the time. People are so critical.
Donna Chesser says
I think it looks stupid personalty but so the fucked what. Why does it matter what we say. Your baby I’d beauitful, are you that weak to be depressed over a comment. Are you that weak! ! You child will grow up and have lots of hair styles, some nice, some not soo nice. Does your baby have cancer? Is he healthy.?,
Tiffany Allen Kendall says
How is it anyone’s concern how she styles HER child’s hair? People need to find some business, quickly!
Monica Bradley says
People always trying to put people in a box. I love her response.
Donna Chesser says
I alway knew she was weak minded, when I saw her acting skills.
Shermaine Sweetpea Perdue says
Ppl need to grow up and get out there feeling I do it to my son all the time he don’t want a hair cut and he hate when its real hot to get his hair braided. Find something better to come at her with
Jamillah Birleast says
Who cares!! It looks nice and neat!! All that matters. These critics are full of shit!!
Shawnta Coleman says
No I dont care how she does HER childs hair. Thats her and hers alone to decide. People need to growup and mind their own business and stop feeding their need for drama. Heck half the damn people worrying about this cant even buy pampers for their kids, how about you focus on that.
Kay McLean says
What exactly is she defending ? I dnt see anything wrong with his hair. Its normal to see lil boys like this. We dnt know if its wash day or braid day or braids just came out day. Ppl need to mind their own business.
Erin Green says
Smh ppl need a life. I style my 6 yr old son hair like this. He has to much hair to manage. I like easy days.
Lorenza Jackson says
Aisha Simons says
She can style her child’s hair as she pleases, who are we to criticize ?
Jay Nette says

DA White says

Idella Grays Pollard says
Shut up and leave her alone!!
Reeree SweetTeezie ThaSwaggbabomb says
Ok we mad beyonce don’t comb her baby hair, we mad cuz Tia do comb her baby hair… you know what comb Yo hair and cut it out.
Princess Johnson says
When we post photos of our children on social media sites it’s expected that individuals will find negative things to speak of about our children, it’s a risk we take as parents! However, as mother I personally wouldn’t explain nothing. My child, my business period!
Shirley Noelcin says
And this is why I don’t put my kids pics on social media sites
Haniece Fearon says
My son had Plaits when he was younger, everyone called him a girl. Oh well.
Natalie Mamarazzi Collins says
I got my own kids hair to worry about, why should I or anyone else spend time worrying about how she does her child’s hair?
Krista Bella Thurman Hopper says
They didn’t see it coming
Regina Camille Devine says
That is what you got to do with little boys with a lot of hair!! They act like he has pink curly weave with glitter bows !!!
Vanessa Walker-Lee says
Who cares, it’s her son…
Kendra Maybe says
Omg his hair is super cute! I love it!
March Blackdiamond Ryans says
As a mother with a son with long hair you do get tired of people saying cut that boys hair or he is a girl, I salute her!! Boys have long hair too, and as long as you keep it neat, I see no problem, and it’s not just a social media problem, you can go any where and people voice their opinions , but ask me do I care noooo because he is my child
Nahla Rae says
People are so opinionated about the wrong things . . .Find yourself because obviously you lost yourself in someone elses business. . .
Pamela Felder Satterwhite says
Lets stop judging little children like this he is a baby at leas his hair is done an not nappy an not all over the place Jesus ! Let examine our own self
Alisha Peele says
Thats her CHILD!!! If she want to put ribbons in his hair, who baby that belong 2??? Tia!!!
Billysfirstlove Anderson says
It’s her child so let her do cree hair how she wants, ,, none of us supply for her or her baby,,,,,,, if she wants to grow it to the ground and put mickey mouse ponytails its her baby,,, dang its way more serious things going on in this world besides cree’s hair do let’s focus on why these cops are on these power trips
Nicole Thompson says
Why ppl always wanna tell someone else how and what to do with their child ?
Wendy Jean-Louis says
My god people these days. As long as they paying for this child then they can open their useless trap doors. Other than that go away
Kashmere Noel says
It’s easy to say leave the child off the internet and out of the limelight so they’re not ridiculed, but Tia is a celebrity, she’s in the limelight whether she likes it or not and therefore so is her son. Just like Beyoncé and Blue Ivy. I believe they have a right to share their pride and joy with the world if they wish and also have a right to defend them. A lot of people seem to think they should just keep quiet and “deal” because they chose the spotlight and all, but to me that’s like saying someone should accept criticism from people on the street because they chose to leave to house and be seen! I think Tia’s right to put closed-minded people in their place! Good on her
Ruth Seaton says
People are dying and all people can talk about is her baby hair???
Shimon McLean says
Ok. Isn’t it the norm for people to be opinionated about things that are nontraditional? To each her own but I would expect people to say things is I had my sons hair in two ponytails. I would expect then to look twice. So what? I’ve had my hair in a natural fro for over a year and people still give me looks. I’m only saying that Tia has posted her son’s pic all over the internet for millions to see. Of course she’s going to get negative comments with all of those pics out there in cyber world. Celebs need to think about this when they post pics if their child all over the place.
DerrickJoanna Polk says
Y does it matter. He is HER son and SHE IS MOM. Mind ur bizz or get sum
Maureen Queen says
You go tia
Jestina Campbell says
What was the issue dang it’s always that dumb ass person ain’t no one concerned about that boy hair other than a jackass… #ICANT
Deborah Bogie says
Her son her business
Erica Holloway MrsNewsome says
I read the original post from her page on this. The majority of ppl talking about his hair were not black. So, it’s not all us as the media will have you believe. I don’t care what she does or anyone else. We have so much more mess going on.
Lamara Robinson Grant says
Her child,her hair ppl fi loe ppl damn business
There is no need for her to defend her childs hairdo. His hair looks good that way. That is his mom’s decision, so let it be.
Michel Barnes says
The boy is the cutest lil thing ever. His mama can do his hair anyway she feels….. HECK IT’s HER CHILD !!!!! Dang !!!!!!!
Rochelle Corilette Liyah Warner says
Can someone tell me what the fking issue is.
The boys hair is done. Who cares if it’s in a top knot are not.
You celeb watchers are never HAPPY ABOUT CHILDREN’S HAIR A CHILD WHO ISN’T YOURS! Flip!
He is happy and tbh has better hair (in terms of health) than most women who be bitching about it.
Look after your own child.
Lynnette Holley says
Pause… why does she even have to defend this?
Burned Lesson Learned says
Nothing to defend it’s her damn son!!!
Johnna Williams Nash says
Does he have a decent place of rest,has both parents around, college fund, clothes and food…. What is the concern again… I think it’s cute and cool for the weather.. Even if I didn’t think it was cute.. Not my child and he’s not in danger
Calmenita Iamenough Browne-Gay says
I use to do my boys hair like that and?
Laine Jordan says
I do not see nothing wrong with his hair it is gorgeous, love it be bless.
Cherry Francis says
People need to shut up he has very nice hair and it’s super cute. I really dont get it. Blue Ivy yesssss I agree but cree is all good.
Crimson Beretta says
It’s ridiculous but some of these celebrities feed into it. WHY are you defending to anyone what you do to YOUR child’s hair (or your own for that matter)? Sometimes, the best way to tell others to go screw themselves is to say nothing and keep doing what you’re doing.
Chanelle Wilkerson says
Looks like a girl. Ijs
Shareen Douglas says
She did nothing wrong with styling her son’s hair people need to mind their own business. She should not have to defend herself against stupidity like this, but unfortunately she is in the spotlight and by default her child is too. She did not put bows or ribbons in his hair she simply took it off of his face and neck. Not everyone can canerow/cornrow and she did what she could or felt like at the moment. She’s not gender bending him, he is dressed in boy’s clothes. Leave her well enough alone and mind your own children/business. There are way more important issues going on in the world today that require people’s focus and attention than how a mother styles her child’s hair.
Khalilah Memyselfandi says
Carol Miller says
Really??? Get a life!
Gloria Pringle-Kincaide says
It don’t matter what I think
Joanna Youngjanet says
I agree with her… Y? That is her son, he has beautiful hair, it’s well groomed and there is nothing at all wrong with boys/men having long hair.. Samson had long hair, so many male stars have long hair… come on ppl there are so many other things dat need our attention…. Ok.
Jennifer Derima says
So its not the issue that his hair wasn’t done, i.e Blue Ivy. It’s that it wasn’t done how YOU would like it done.
Marcia Merriweather says
Why is this an issue? We have other issues far greater than what an innocent child looks like. She shouldn’t have to defend anything.
Lauraine Braithwaite says
Give me a break!!! Why should she have to defend her decision on Instagram or anywhere else!!!
Shawntel Singletary says
Omg he is so adorable
Dee Collins says
It is comb.
Myz F Alecia Smith says
ITS HER SON , ONCE U R HAPPY TIA THATS ALL THAT MATTERS.
Doris Hines Yamini says
All these problems in the world and people are worried about how she did HER son’s hair……really?
Pamela Traeye says
I have bigger fish to fry and so does she. I can’t believe she even responded. Smh
MizTrie Glin says
Smdh there is nothing wrong with this boys hair, he’s A gorgeous child people suck
Everyone seems to have an opinion on everything, just because you see something you don’t like or wouldn’t do ; it doesn’t mean you have to comment on it. I didn’t cut my sons hair until he was 3 so if it wasn’t plaited sometimes it was in a top knot, in a bun or left out . I personally think its weird to cut a young child’s hair off, but I do not ask anyone to conform to what/how I like things to be. Focus on the really important things in life and leave a parent to care for their child’s hair the way they want to. Also stop using your right to free speech to denigrate someone’s child.
Iamdabonifideone Yup says
At least it’s neater than Blue Ivy’s hair
Carol Jones says
I really don’t see anything wrong with his hair, give me a brake people let’s worry about what is going on with our youth please.
Shannon Thomas says
People need to get some business!
Grace Christine Spurling says
Why is people triping about this child hair go find something eles to complain about it was was hot so she put his hair up get over it get life
Janet Edwards says
She shouldn’t have to defend styling her son’s hair period. “Some” people are do damned quick to criticize before looking at that man/woman in the mirror and evaluating the reflection they see before them. If they did, they would not be so quick to judge others.
Deanna Merritt Ross says
Really?!!! It’s just hair!
Marsha Garcia says
really? poor tia had to explain this? i couldnt be a star cause i would be cussin ppl left n right my PR would quit lol
Hannah Okorafor says
Why do people care?!
My days, some people are just too inna! Mind your business she’s free to do HER SON’S hair how she likes.
Too many control freaks out her…FYI the style is not even new or unseen so why the hype?!
Lamonica Tomlin says
Very nice it not standing on his head look good
Sandra Brooks says
Seems fine to me
Iamdabonifideone Yup says
Dey should go Trinidad…. Lol. I think his hair looks adorable.
Ni-Ni Patterson says
Unlike other parent’s, famous or not, she actually keeps his hair presentable, so I don’t see an issue with it.
Gloria Newsome says
If it was all over his head people would still have something to say #neversatisfied
Erica Boyd says
Hold up yall complain about Blu nappy hair and when you see a baby with his hair done you complain about that too. Yall some bipolar somethings
Danika Harrison says
Y the fuck does it matter how she does or keeps her child’s hair? Ppl seriously get a fuckin life. So much terrible things happening around the world. Nd all these ignorant fools are worried about is SOMEONE else’s child’s hair?! My God!!! smdh… Hair?! Lmao dis is crazy:(
Shanta Mitchell says
Some people love to judge other people’s parenting choices and yet those same (judgmental) people have no idea what their very own children are up to when they’re not around. Smh
JustMs Nolden says
Defends herself for what?!?!?!!!! It’s her damn child!!! Ppl really need to get a life
Tanesha Birmingham-Woods says
I don’t see anything with it!
Natashia Olive says
It’s her kid she can do whatever she choses to do with it!!
Ebony J Jones says
Cree is a child. He’s not trying to impress anyone let him enjoy his childhood and be innocent little person… He’s not into media magazines and how he should look as a child! TIa you did the right thing!!
Nicole Hartley says
Its her kid, her business. People really need to get a friggin life
Carmenita Miamourju says
It amazes me that with all the issues going on in the world people seem to focus on another person’s child. Pick Up a newspaper a book or something and focus on what matters. I’m glad Tia said something because she’s a mother first and a celebrity second. People always seem to think “celebrities” don’t have feelings. NEWS FLASH! SHE’S HUMAN!
Tammie Faulkner Taylor says
She loves to stay in the spotlight. And she definitely ensures that she does.
It’s interesting to read comments about his hair being no big deal, but when Willow Smith cut hers off, most of the sentiment was quite different.
Janika McCreary says
I see nothing wrong with his hair if my sons hair was long and I didn’t feel like twisting it or braiding it-it would be in a knot.
Ava Inara Fraizer says
U don’t understand how she’s putting her son out there? What the fuck does that mean. Should I keep my kids in a closet from the world because people are assholes? She’s a parent. Parents are proud of their kids.
Kelly Jamila says
well her children are already going to be put out there regardless of if she uses instagram or not. I don’t think Its anyone’s concern really to worry about. ..a kids hair. Do you really have that much time to where you have something to say about a child’s hair style? a hair stYle he didn’t even do himself ?
Mahogony Love says
Really…so? I can think of important issues.
Sandra Haynie says
This cute , I’ve seen boys hair like that before.
Natasha Amos says
I style my two yr old sons hair like this all the time!!!! People are petty he’s a child!!! At least she grooms his hair unlike some hollywood moms
Brandi Reed says
People need to mind there business and worry about there bad ass kids.
Alicia Anderson says
I’m too busy worrying about my own child’s well being
Jameka Benjamin says
Cute to me. But whatever.
Denise Freeman says
Latrice Pruitt says
these celebrities need to stop sharing every little thing they do cuzz people cant stop the world from talking about them weather they like it or not, everyone is free to their own opinions other dont have to like it, it just dont matter people should just voice theirs and stop jumping on everyone that dont agree with them smh….
Kelly White says
Nothing wrong with it
Sandra Sahara says
I see boys in ponytails all the time. Just recently I saw a lil boy with a ponytail on top of his head….I had to ask the mother is he a boy? She just smiled and replied, “Yes” LOL
Tia Hart says
People really need to, “Get them some business”… That is, mind their own!
Tashalynn Campbell says
No one’s business her son his her haters fall back nothing else to do
Jennifer Mcmillion says
People needs to get a life.
Connie Brown says
What difference does it make to any one what she does w/ her sons hair??
Sharon Kilgore says
Some grown men hair don’t look better then that. For instance football player with these fake extensions in their hair. Braids hanging out there helmets like like girls. Come on now.
Deneen Carroll says
That’s her seed she can do what the Hell she wants with him.
Lionessa Phillip says
I did my son hair in pony tail all da time so wat is so wrong bout dat, don’t these Apple have better things to talk about. Plzzzz
My 2 year old son has long hair. People ask me when am I gonna cut it. Or they’ll say you need to cut it. I don’t need to do anything. Mind your own
business. It’s healthy and beautiful. Go Tia!
Nikki Nichelle Wilkins says
Who cares !!! Leave ’em alone… Bigger fish to fry!!
Brazilian GoddessHair says
Maybe she wanted a girl… whats the problem?
Jaymesha Hamilton says
Her son’s hair is fine. Leave Tia alone, y’all some bitter haters.
Kizzy Bartley-Squires says
Take your kid off social network if you don’t want him to be ridiculed
Acreativemind Creative says
Why should she have to defend doing anything to her child’s hair? It’s ridiculous to say the least.
Vivian Miller says
This is her child, she’s minding her business in her own home.
Risha NoneyaBuzinezz Robinson says
I think its cute
J.l. Neil says
oh I thought that was a girl. hahaha
Candice Dollface Lewis says
Ok if she didn’t comb his hair it would be a problem like Blu Ivy. Leave it alone that’s her child!
Laurie Ferguson says
That’s her child she do whatever with his she wants what hell is wrong with people OMG
Maggie Tony says
People will judge no matter what, ignore the haters and move on.
Karen Nolen says
That’s her child get a life
Crystene Thomas says
Nothing we have more pressing matters like ,black men getting shot in the street like savage dogs. Back to you in the studio
Terri Woods says
Blk people can rock that §tyle and still look like a boy people should know that’s a boy its her son
Theresa Wilson says
And rightfully so! People have some nerve…..take care of your own household ,teach your kid to pull their pants up, go to school and help with problems instead of being the problem!
Yvonne Lee says
Get his hair cut. Don’t get mad if someone thinks he is a girl
Sharon King says
Let them talk it makes you popular.
Rosalind Dillard says
This is so dumb,if I was her I wouldn’t even respond to this foolishness.
Rolanda Finch says
Killing of young black ALL over the US and y’all worried about hair WTH? Stand for someone or fall for everything!
Kasie Releford says
This is news because???? Last time I check that’s her baby at least he looks decent people really be tryna find stuff to be mad about
Buddy Rock says
Who Cares it’s her baby people need to worry about their own kid hair n if u don’t have any than worry about ur own dam hair
Charlene Cha LaBranche says
Hair in a knot ughhh okay lol sighs
Linda D Thomas says
Learn what’s your business and what is not. That is her baby and if she likes it I love it!
Dee Dee Priscilla Martin says
Okay who cares her son’s hair is so cute. At least its combed and looks so nice.
Ashley Iainttakinnoshit Plummer says
Not a good move. He will be confused in a few
Kym Fedee says
I think it looks nice a quick and easy style, when my son was small with that hair length i would put it in puffs, he looked fine, so who cares there are so much more important things to be worrying about in life.
Nicola Taylor says
Alot of u have men who comb their hair like women and u go out in public with them..and u don’t think they are confused. Let them be and mind your own business
Jeaneen Alise says
Seriously who cares… This child has more hair than the idiots complaining.. Get a life and mind your own tresses
Mary Howard says
I would ignore all of the naysayers. Whether she has her baby in front of the camera is no cause for the harsh critique. In Tia’s place I would ignore all of the stupid comments because for some reason the rest of the world seem to think they and their children are perfect. Get a life.
I think it looks cute! Gender assignations of things like hair length and style, colors or toys are annoying! That’s why it’s called “personal style”. Because each person is entitled to have theirs. As a parent Tia is entitled to do as she wishes with her boy’s hair. Men have been wearing long hair since before Moses. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure Adam didn’t hit the barber shop on the reg either… Sex is between your legs, gender is between your ears and everything else is free for all. Everybody’s so worried about somebody else’s child’s hair when there are matter so much more pertinent and relevant to our people right now. That’s the saddest thing.
Sherry Miles says
I like unconventional styles, because it’s unique. He looks handsome with a top knot.
Latesa Arnold says
MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!!!
Why do people feel they get to pass judgment on this? Her baby so she gets to decide how to groom him.
Nagadya Nsub says
We have our children been killed and left in the road like animals to die ..and some of u are worrying ur self abt how ppl are combing there kids hair ….stop with the nonsense .. Judging is ((GOD JOB ))NOT in perfect humans …
Jus Jenae says
He could have braids or dreads looking like a chief keef mug shot… leave her alone!
Regina Stevenson says
Moniesa Fuller says
Nothings wrong with it.its cute
Linda Burnett says
Seriously – We are talking about Tia Mowry son’s hair and we have aother black young man gunned down in the streets and another set of parents grieving the loss of a child – and the conversation is about a little chid’s hairstyle………seriously!!!!!!
