Heidi Klum Writes About Styling Her Kids’ Hair

Bringing up four children with husband Seal has some hair-raising moments. In an article Heidi Klum has written for The Huffington Post, the model mom dishes on how she cares for her children’s locks.

Referring to her youngest kids Henry, 5, Johan, 4, and Lou, 1 1/2, she writes: “Henry, Johan and Lou — my three youngest — have super beautiful locks. Their hair definitely requires a different kind of care than my daughter Leni’s hair. I’ve learned to never brush their curly hair when it’s dry because then it’ll frizz. I use lots of conditioner and detangler, and only go to hairdressers who really KNOW how to cut and style curly hair.”

She adds, “I’ve let my boys’ hair grow really really long, and just recently they asked me to cut off their beautiful hair! It was funny because it was definitely harder for ME in some ways, as I absolutely love their hair! I’m their Mom — I’ve been the one to carefully brush and help them care for it all these years, but I do want them to be who they want to be. I think that’s really important, to allow kids to express themselves — everything from the way they dress to how they want their hair. And now, that meant short.”

Not only did her sons wanted their hair short, they wanted some style too.

And of course, it was not just simple short! They wanted mohawks with special designs to them, so I asked Lamar Odom who did his cool star-design buzz, and then contacted his stylist. He gave my kids these buzz cuts with amazing individual designs… great for the summer because they’re COOL, in both senses of the word!”

    Well done Heidi! It’s nice to see a parent with bi-racial children take care of their hair…It isn’t easy, so I’m impressed by your efforts.

    I noticed the designs on the side of Henry’s and back of Johan’s heads a while back. Nice to see a white mother discussing the differences in caring for their non-white children’s hair.

      Huh? “Non white” children with a “white” mother?

      I would say they are bi-racial and beautiful.

    I’m the only one that has ever cut my bi-racial son’s hair because nobody in the suburbs knows how.
