David Beckham refuses to cut his daughter’s hair
She’s the daughter of mega-star David Beckham, so we’ve always assumed Harper Beckham doesn’t miss out on much.
But the four-year-old is still yet to receive one thing – a haircut.
Apparently, her father point-blank refuses to let his little one cut her locks. In a recent interview with Yahoo, he came across as extremely protective of his daughter’s ‘do.
"About a year ago, my wife said, 'maybe we should cut Harper’s hair.' And I was like, 'No! We need to grow it. Do. Not. Touch,'" David said.
"Since she was born, we haven’t cut it. That’s why it’s pretty much down to her knees," he said.
In response, the interviewer joked: "You saved Harper's hair!" to which Beckham replied: "I had to. It's just so good, isn't it?"
I have to agree with David here – the toddler’s long, honey locks are pretty gorgeous.
Even so, considering he’s cut and styled his own hair in so many ways over the years, his approach to his daughter’s mane is quite surprising (but we kind of love him for it)!
Interestingly, celebs like the Beckhams aren’t the only ones skipping kiddie cuts.
Earlier this year, The New York Times reported more and more parents are letting their sons' hair grow long – some to the shoulders, others long enough to be pulled back into mini man buns!
Surprisingly, it’s often not about making a statement, but rather, based on big love for the child’s hair.
The debate about whether children should have haircuts makes me think of my own dad, who always tried to stop my sisters and I from getting our hair cut short.
Sorry for the current asymmetrical bob, Pete – I know it’s not your fave!
In any case, even if she’s in love with her long locks now, my guess is Harper will be begging her dad for a haircut sooner or later.
And why shouldn’t she? After all, it’ll definitely grow back!
In the meantime, David should invest in one of these de-tangling must-haves:
