What Your Kids’ Hair Says About You

Think a cut's just a cut?  Not so says New York based Psychotherapist, Robi Ludwig, contributor to the Today Show and Care.com.  " [A child’s hairstyle] is a statement about who the parent is and how they want both themselves and their kid/kids to be seen by the world. Kids don’t have a distinct separate psychological or stylistic identity from their parents, until they’re older.”

So what does your kids cut says about you?  Cozy Friedman, owner of Cozy’s Cuts for Kids salons in NYC, has devised a reference guide.  See if your child's cut is a fit or whether you're in need of a quick run to the salon.
