Even before I had kids, I vowed that I wouldn’t be the kind of mom who freaks out when her darlings show up with a bizarre hair color or style. It’s one thing to put 12g gauges in your ears or tattoo your entire back in unicorns, barbed wire and your high-school boyfriend’s name. But dyes grow out and buzz cuts grow back.
So I think it’s pretty cool that a certain Oscar-winning actress let her young daughter put a couple of pink streaks in her hair. It may have been a special birthday treat – this girl just turned 8 the other day – or perhaps Mom was prepping her older child for an awesome concert.
The family – mom, daughter and younger brother – went to the Jay-Z and Kanye West concert at London’s O2 arena. The actress/author tweeted this shot of her children signaling their “Uncle Jay” with the symbol of the Roc-a-Fella label.
Guessed it yet?
Would it help if we said that this stylish young lady might have used some “goop” on her hair?
Of course, it’s Gwyneth Paltrow‘s daughter Apple Martin, the older of her two children with husband Chris Martin. Brother Moses is on her left.
The Martins are besties with Jay and wife Beyonce, so of course they wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to see a show like this.
So say what you will about Gwyneth’s cleanses, bee pollen supplements and willingness to put her career second to her husband and kids. When it comes to parenting, she clearly knows not to sweat the small stuff.
