Lol - how very weird.....
What's wrong with a head band itself as well? Like if it's to avoid that gender confusion why not just chuck a frilly pink headband - done! It's a girl!
Plus how awkward when it gets dirty or vomited on or tatty and you take it off to wash it - people will be like ' OMG why on earth did you shave her????'
Or be like 'thank goodness that wig was weird! '

But it was NOT uncommon to see parents dolling up their kids, dressing them about eight years too old, and trowelling on the make up. There's very little more disturbing than a mother trying to teach her (very young) daughter how to do "smouldering eyes" for the camera. Talk about sending shivers up the spine...
When it comes to adults, I'm a bit more flexible. I won't take kilos off, for example (too bloody time consuming) but if the client wants I'll zap out the odd laugh line or whatnot, and I'll smooth the skin simply because high-resolution is no one's friend.
With corporate head shots, I get why they want it done. The internet is a permanent medium, and there's nothing wrong with people wanting to look their best. Also, cameras don't "see" the same way we do, so most of the retouching I do is to de-emphasise the things that you just don't notice when you're looking at them, but that stick out like dogs' proverbials in a photo.

Way too odd... This looks like something a pageant parent may use....
It's a shame because, to me, it sends the wrong message to the child - that from the outset you are not what we want / expect you to look like.

"I'm not a boy"
It's very important you ensure everyone your baby could posibly come into contact with is 100% certain of your childs genitals. You wouldn't want anyone accidently not influencing the childs own ideals of what gender means to their sex.
Same with the baby headbands, yk the ones you only ever put on bald baby girls that someone might mistake as having a penis and random strangers not getting the opportunity to act in a gendering appropriate manner.

Hahaha, bit bizarre, but it's cute. It would be good for a dress up party or something...
DD2 was born with full head of hair. She's 9 months and looks like she could have one of these wigs on.
