This year for Halloween, Jessica Simpson’s 5-year-old daughter, Maxwell Drew, dressed up as Belle from “Beauty and the Beast.”
The young fashionista donned a pair of Chucks and a bright yellow dress. She proudly stood with the rest of her family for a picture Jessica posted on Instagram.jessicasimpson/Instagram
As Cafe Mom reports, some of Jessica’s followers flipped when they realized Maxi’s hair is normally blonde.jessicasimpson/Instagram
A few people were quick to point out that the brown hair was likely just a temporary spray for Maxwell to match her costume.jessicasimpson/Instagram
And who even knows if this was Jessica’s idea? According to ET Online, Maxwell found a pair of scissors and cut off a piece of her own hair in September 2016.jessicasimpson/Instagram
Jessica told People magazine last year that her daughter is creative and “better at putting together outfits” than she is. “She’s a new inspiration,” she told the publication.
As for whether real dye would be problematic, dermatologist Dr. Sejal Shah told Good Housekeeping that she recommends waiting until a child is in her or his teens before using permanent hair dye:
“I really don’t think it’s safe to dye or bleach a child’s hair until after puberty, and ideally not until their late teens — at least 16.”
Of course, there are always exceptions. She noted that if a parent is going to dye his or her child’s hair, to use a nonpermanent solution:
“These temporary colors just coat the hair shaft and do not penetrate it as a dye would.”
As previously reported by Dearly, Jessica was criticized a few weeks ago for allowing her son’s hair to get too long.
It appears that the pop star is constantly finding herself in hairy parenting situations.
