A video of a little girl with a curled coif dyed pink hair has ended up in the cross hairs of the internet.
Makeup artist and beauty blogger Charity Grace LeBlanc shared a video with her 313,000 Instagram followers in which she curled and styled her daughter’s pink hair.
In the video, three-year-old City sits in a chair as her mum uses a hot iron to curl her thin rose locks. She then combs out the Shirley Temple curls and styles them. City flips her hairs and blows a kiss to the camera.
“When you get curls and suddenly your sass factor goes through the roof,” Charity captioned the post.
The video now has over 89,000 views and has sparked a serious debate. Most of Charity’s fans think the video is adorable.
“She looks just like a fairy princess,” one wrote.
“She is the cutest lil fairy princess and you are an inspiration as a woman and mother Always love your posts,” one fan gushed.

“Dude you’re like the best mum I’ve ever seen!!!” another echoed.
However, a few are questioning her decision to dye and style City’s hair at such a young age.
“You are the [stupidest] mum I have ever seen,” one commenter exclaimed.
“Aren’t you worried about ruining her hair? (Not hating),” another asked, referring to the heat of the curling iron.
“She’s so adorable I’m totally in love w her and her cuteness, but aren’t you damaging her hair that way?? She’s still very young for hair dyes,” someone wrote.
Her fans are used to this sort of stuff, though, which is probably why the reaction was relatively mild. Charity dyed City’s hair this summer, when she was still two years old.
The response to that was very aggressive, with many calling Charity “irresponsible” and said they felt bad for her daughter, while others justified her actions because the product used was “vegan and natural” and washes out, and “it’s only a bit of fun!”
Funnily enough, in the beginning of this video, City says, “I’m a human,” while her mum plays with her hair like she’s a doll.
