Long hair. Blue hair. The parent police always seem to point out when they aren’t too thrilled with our children’s hair.

Well, Kourtney Kardashian isn’t having it.

The famous mom posted photos of two of her kids, daughter Penelope, 7, and son Reign, 4, from a weekend getaway.

Someone was quick to to say: “She really need to cut his hair.”

The reality TV star clapped back.

“She really need to not worry about kids that aren’t her own,” Kardashian wrote. “He is a happy boy.” Kardashian included a praying hands emoji.

Luckily, there seemed to be only one critic amid a flood of supporters.

“His hair is gorgeous and I’m a little envious to be honest,” wrote another fan.

“My son had long hair until he was 15 and then decided it was time to chop it off!” shared one mom, adding that she doesn’t know why people “think children should all be little cookie cutters.”

Instagram recently faced some backlash from parents for deleting topless photos of their young boys with long hair, BuzzFeed News reported.

Per the social media platform’s guidelines, it notes that “there are times when we may remove images that show nude or partially-nude children.”

One mom’s mission got others sharing photos of their long-haired boys, and asking Instagram to stop deleting their photos.

Help us share this message to get @instagram attention! Who’s with me?! Im tired of having Parkers shirtless pictures get deleted because IG think he’s a girl for having long hair! It’s happened so many times that they will delete all my accounts if it happens again and I’ll lose all my pictures. There is no way to contact them either. This happens to thousands of other little long haired boys too, not just us. There has to be a way to get @instagram attention. JOIN IN AND MAKE A SIGN and tag #longhairedboyrevolution @mosseri

Pink, blue and ‘punk rock’ hair

Long hair isn’t the only target. Critics have also come after celebrity parents for allowing their daughters to dye their hair.

Tori Spelling and Jessica Simpson were criticized after they shared photos of their daughters with brightly colored hair.

Spelling’s daughters, Stella, 11, and Hattie, 7, were pictured wearing reddish hair dye and pink makeup on their eyelids. One user chimed in, saying the girls were “too young” for that. But Spelling explained that the dye was washable and added, “screw the shamers.”

Simpson’s daughter Maxwell Drew, 7, rocked purple highlights in her long blonde locks – a look is inspired by Disney Channel’s “Descendants” film franchise.

While Simpson kept quiet about the critics, fellow mom and singer Pink stepped in to defend Simpson with her own Instagram post.

“I heard people were bummed on Jessica Simpson for letting her seven year old get her hair colored. So we thought we’d share what we did yesterday,” Pink wrote alongside a picture of the singer dyeing her 8-year-old daughter Willow’s hair blue.

Willow definitely has the support of her parents when it comes to her creative style.

Her dad and Pink’s husband, Carey Hart, shared a photo of his daughter getting her hair cut with one side of her head completely shaved while the rest of her blonde locks fall across one cheek.

“Loving my punk rock daughter,” Hart wrote.

“Remember everyone, fly your own flag. There is no box to be put in. 

“Own it, and love it. And if anyone has a problem with it, tell them (politely) to move on.”

Loving my punk rock daughter. Remember everyone, fly your own flag. There is no box to be put in. Its better to be your own self. Own it, and love it. And if anyone has a problem with it, tell them (politely) to move on. Cant wait to see the woman you grow up to be. I have a feeling you are gonna be strong, fierce, companionate, and caring. I’m so proud of you, willow.
