This tiny tyke knows the meaning of edgy! But is it bad for a 4-year-old boy to be getting beauty treatments like a mani/pedi? We asked an expert.
At the ripe age of 4, Kingston Rossdale is already a punk rocker! We know he inherited his style from his rock star parents Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, but this tiny tyke knows how to edge it up all on his own! On his way to Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, Kingston sported a hip new hairdo that would make anyone do a double-take — a half-shaven bleached Mohawk! But if that wasn’t rebellious enough, he showed off his new multicolored mani/pedi on the way out of the nail salon with Mom! Would you take your little boy for a manicure?
Kingston getting his nails done at a salon may seem a little off-kilter, and it’s likely that Gwen is encouraging it, but it’s not harmful for the 4-year-old. “At this age, the parents of these children are making the decisions for them,” child psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere tells HollyBaby.com. “But as children grow up and ask for treatments such as manicures, even if they’re male, parents should allow them to do it.”
Although some people might see Kingston’s day of beauty as a bad thing, the tiny tyke should be able to enjoy the experience — and he obviously does! “There’s no reason to hurry the gender role process along,” says Dr. Gardere. “It only creates confusion in the child’s mind and adds unnecessary pressure at a young age.”
The totally rad tot is usually seen wearing the trendiest clothes alongside his little brother Zuma, 2, and now he’s showing off his super cool hair and nail style! We wish we had his rock star vibe!
