All summer, I saw the cutest little boys walking around with their hair like miniature Odell Beckham, Jr’s. OBJ is the wide receiver for the New York Giants, and he is recognized by his signature blonde ombre hair.
MJ has been asking us, rather relentlessly, to dye his hair, but I was hesitant. First, it’s a permanent process, and I already struggle with people thinking I color P’s naturally blonde curls. Second, he is only eight years old and while he has a great sense of style, I was on the fence about how it would look. The reality is, MJ is very confident in who he is. It’s never bothered him that 60% of people refer to him as “she”, or that people tell him he’s beautiful. He loves every bit of his curly hair and has never been afraid to experiment with haircuts. So I made an appointment with Patricia of Lynn Styles, and she made his wish come true! Ahhh!
I wasn’t ready for the responsibility of completely blonde hair on top like Odell’s, but we came up with a happy medium — for now. Patricia lightened up his strands, toned them down, and the result was golden highlights. My baby had the biggest smile on my his face and I loved seeing him own his look. I filmed the process and I will posting the video soon on our You Tube Channel.
