Hairdo has become an important part of today’s lifestyle. We try to be trendy all the times by following our favorite celebrity hairstyle, or just our personal curiosity to get a good hairstyle.
Some of us stick to one forever while some try experimenting. Following the latest insane and even weird hair trends, people get themselves some pretty bizarre hairstyles like pastel hair colors, side cuts, etc. Sometimes, it is a risky business because you may not like the outcome of your ‘experiment.’
This little girl has taken the internet by storm with her unusual hairstyle. A mother, who understood her daughter’s wish, took the matters in her hand by transforming the kid’s hair with ‘teal’ unicorn hues with yellow and purple patches.
Unfortunately, she faced heavy criticism on social media.
This 6-year-old wanted a different hairstyle
Lyra, a 6-year-old girl, asked her mother to fulfill an unusual wish of hers. She must have some crazy fantasies of unicorns which inspired her to this look.
Lyra’s mom is perfect for her daughter’s wishes
Besides caretaking, Mary Thomaston is a professional hair stylist and colorist from Panama City Beach, Florida. Luckily, she specializes in magical unicorn, mermaid and rainbow hair dye techniques. So it is almost like a cakewalk for the girl to achieve her look.
Very persistent girl, though
Initially, Mary was hesitant about this strange wish of her daughter. But Lyra had her determination and was equally adamant about the decision to don the look.
So momma puts a condition
As Lyra was stubborn, Mary accepted her wish on a condition that Lyra gets permission from the school to proceed. So being a responsible mother she asked the school and then she went ahead only when they allowed Lyra to have the look.
A whole new level of experimenting
The coloring part was fine, but there were concerns Mary had that the girl would not like the shaved head and later regret her decision. Soon she was proven wrong as her daughter not only liked it but loved her new hairstyle. She was more than excited about her new look.
Then comes the social media
The response on social media was quite disappointing. Some criticized while others appreciated.
Some went far ahead with opposition
One woman wrote, “Why would you do that? I don’t get it. She had such beautiful hair. I would never do that to my daughter’s hair.”
The social media dwelling ‘haters’ called Mary irresponsible. Unfortunately, a mother’s ego can take a little bruising. But it was only a matter of time before she bounced back. After all, she did allow her daughter to live life on her own terms. Pretty simple.
So the response she gave was perfect
She said, “Really? Because when you’re a grown up with crazy-colored hair, people say that such things are for kids. It’s a contradiction. I say why not let them have fun while they’re young? Who knows what type of job she may end up with? A lot of them won’t allow unnatural colors. When you think about it that way, it’s actually the perfect time to let them experiment with color.”
Please note that Mary paid special attention to the chemicals she used on her daughter
This is what mothers do. They care. A lot. Mary used non-permanent, non-toxic and 100% natural hair dye on her daughter. It has been a great inspiration to all the parents to let their children try new things and teach them that it’s okay to be themselves.
Lyra, the trendsetter!
This coloring requires a lot of care and maintenance. But Lyra is happy! Through social media, her creative look has become a fashion trend. Now several mothers and their daughters have even requested Mary for the same look.
So don’t hesitate to try what you wanted to!
