You guys, Tia Mowry-Hardrict has some serious feels about internet trolls hating on 3-year-old son Cree’s locks of curly love. Via this stylish mama’s Instagram account, she recently posted photos of her little kiddo sporting his long hair (like he don’t care) loose or tied up in not one but two chic top knots.

While we think he looks insanely adorable, there are a lot of haters who think otherwise. Plus, they feel that Tia should actually cut her son’s hair. So how has the former Sister, Sister actress responded?

The 36-year-old took to Insta on August 13 to address her critics, saying, “I am proud to have a SON that embraces his natural hair :). Hair length does not define your sex. Last I checked, a penis and a vagina does,” Tia wrote, along with a photo of herself with Cree.

“Pick up a book, educate yourself, and embrace cultures outside of your own, and maybe you will see that there are PLENTY of MEN wearing top knots and MEN with long hair. Here's a shout-out to all the moms who have boys and girls with natural hair! Live ON!”

To that we say, preach, girl.


This proud mama has long been embracing her natural tresses, much like her twin sister, Tamera Mowry-Housley. Just this past February, Tia took to social media to reveal both her and Cree’s natural looks and even claimed that her son’s hair was her “inspiration.”

All we have to say is, keep doing you, mama! And Cree? Wear those top knots like nobody’s business.
