Do you think children should be able to choose their own hair styles? TikToker @jmzf does! That’s why, when she caught her little sister pretending to have shorter hair, she decided to take action and give her a haircut. There was just one problem: The TikToker’s mom didn’t approve. In a viral video that has racked up more than 16 million views, the TikToker shares the story of how she decided to go ahead and give her little sister the haircut she wanted.
“My little sister loves to put her hair in her shirt and act like she has short hair,” the TikToker explains in a caption. “I caught her looking at herself today. She looked so happy.”
The little girl continues to turn her head in different directions, checking out her imaginary short hair at different angles.
“I texted my sisters for some reassurance because I was about to go against my mom,” the TikToker explains, showing a screenshot of a text conversation between herself and her sisters.
“Do it!” one sister writes.
“It’s just hair,” another sister reassures her.
Then the video cuts back to her little sister. The TikToker shows the little girl with long hair, then cuts to her sister after she got her haircut. The little girl now has shoulder-length hair and looks so happy. She smiles and even begins to tear up, overcome with positive emotions.
“She loved it!” the TikToker writes as the video ends. “Her little reaction was so worth it! But mom still got us in trouble.”
TikTokers showed support for her sister’s haircut
Viewers chimed in to support the TikToker and her sister.
“The haircut is perfect on her!” one viewer wrote.
“Normalize letting kids pick their own cuts and choosing when it happens. It looks so precious on her,” commented another viewer.
“She’s definitely trying to be like her big sister! I see you have short hair too. So precious,” observed another TikToker.
