    Default Mother / Daughter hair cutting conversation

    So, I'm sitting at Whole Foods having lunch - easily the greatest place to have lunch because they have a bar right smack in the middle of the store so it feels like you're doing something good and organic for you liver.

    Anyway, a women and her daughter sit down and the mother continues what sound like a long conversation with (TO) her daughter.

    The mother is probably in her early 40's and the daughter is probably 15 - 16 years old. The daughter, a cute girl has noticeably long, healthy, well kept long hair - I can never remember the length distinctions but I would say right above her waist - very thick hair.

    So, ...

    Mother '.... just look around, do you see other girls with long hair, look at how they keep it.'
    Girl - munching on sandwich...
    Mother 'It's just that, you know, I think you might want a more big girl style (she said 'style' like it was ketchup slowly flowing out of a bottle), you know, something that shows your face more, that makes you look more pretty...'.
    Girl - munch, munch, looking around, munch munch
    Mother (somewhat exasperated at her daughter's lack of attention) 'C, can we talk about this, you need a style that let's the boys know you are not a little girl, with braids and long hair, serious, you know, more like a young women, C, are you listening to me, we can go after lunch, I can make an appointment at my salon, I know they will take you right in....'.
    Girl -munch, wonder, munch, wonder.
    Mother 'C!'.
    Girl - puts her sandwich down, wipes her mouth and says 'Mother, long hair is a style!'. Picks up sandwich...
    Mother '......'

    God I love strong willed girls! Mostly because they become kick ass women.

    Colorado is my physical home but I spend a lot of time in my mind. It's safer that way.

    Right on! The mom sounds likely mom. When she was dying my hair she would buy me dye when she quit dye she would fuss about me dying. Obviously this girl is way ahead of me in the tell mom to back off thing then I am even now as an adult with kids of her own

    That is great she was so firm on it.

    It saddens me though that A mother would be encouraging her young daughter (sorry, 16 IS YOUNG.) to try to show herself off to boys, As well as the "look more pretty" and "big girl" thing.

    Generally, from what I have learned from my own mom, moms never want their baby girls to grow up although inevitable, and especially DON'T want boys looking at her like that, or to "let them know shes not a little girl" And I am sure a mother thinks her children are the most beautiful thing in the world...so its sad that she is telling her daughter that she needs to do something to be more pretty.
    It saddens me, but its not my life so its whatever.

    Yeaaah, that seemed a little odd to me as well. But hey, there are all kinds of moms out there.

    When I was that age, there wouldn't have been any discussion on the matter. My mom would have simply said, "This is what I have chosen will be done with your hair. No arguments." Then I would have been required to comply, no matter how much I whined and moaned that it wasn't what I wanted.

    You are right..there are all sorts out there, and that is okay. I feel really lucky that I was always encouraged to do my own thing when it came to hair and clothing and the aesthetics in general.

    Parents can be overbearing about their kids' hairstyles. It's a shame in this case the mom is encouraging the daughter to follow the herd.

    when I was in junior high, I had a friend who had ashy roots growing out of her blond hair. I asked her how that was possible (I didn't know girls dyed their hair), she told me that it had to be colored and that her 'gray' roots are her natural color. I asked her why not just keep the color, and she said she wanted to, it's just that her mom forced her to color her hair. She was scared of her mom, go figure.

    The same here Although I do try (all the time), but she only takes everything like that as a huge offense to her...

    That does sound scary - dying a child's hair is very unhealthy for them, and I would say unnatural too...

    Good for that young lady! I have a 16 close to 17 year old who has waist length hair(wetrim to waist because it is soo heavy!) and she likes her hair long I do have issues with trying to get her to do any braiding(she says it hurts fater a while) and keeping it clean looking but I amin no rush for her to worry about reltionships she tends to be asexual as it is. Her sister was obsessed with boys so itis kind of nice she is only interested n things she wants to do(read, play games) Most people think she is much younger than her age ecauseof her hair and lack of makeup but that is their problem!
