A 12-week-old baby has become quite the sensation thanks to her incredible head of hair. Watch the adorable video below:
Mum Kiaya Leach, 21, gets stopped in the street by strangers who simply ‘can't believe how much hair her baby has’.
The stay-at-home mum insists her daughter's hair has a ‘mind of its own’ and rejects any attempts to flatten it - so she has decided to 'embrace' the ‘do.
“Everyone compares her hair to Elvis Presley,” Kiaya said. “It’s naturally gone into this cute little quiff – just like [Elvis's] hair. I’m always stopped in the street by people who can’t believe how much hair she has.
“We’ve done everything to try and flatten and brush it, but it does what it wants.
“I’ve stopped trying to style it now and just let it do its own thing.”
After five hours in labour, Kiaya welcomed baby Hallie on 5 July, weighing 9lb 7oz and full head of thick black locks.
In fact the first thing medics commented on was Hallie’s incredible mop of hair, which has now reached a length of 3in.
“The first thing the doctors said was how much of a big baby she was and how much hair she had,” Kiaya said.
“It never stops growing – I can’t believe how long it is already.”
She added: “It gets greasy quite quickly, so we have a dedicated hair wash day for her.
“I’ve combed it back, to the sides, but it always sticks up again.
Hallie’s big brother, three-year-old Hunter, affectionately calls her ‘Hulk’ comparing her unique hair to his favourite superhero.
Mum-of-two Kiaya had tried everything to ‘tame’ the mane but despite all the washing, brushing and styling, the luscious locks always spring back to an upright position.
Unsurprisingly, Hallie isn’t the only member of the family with show-stopping hair;. Hunter has been given the nickname 'Thor' because of his own barnet which also turns heads.
“He’s got this thick long blonde hair – they’re quite the pair,” the proud mum said. “Hunter absolutely adores his little sister - he's really obsessed with her. He calls 'Hulk' because she's he's also got thick, black hair.
"He's nicknamed 'Thor' because of his hair so we have a pair of superheroes. I don't plan to get it cut anytime soon. I love seeing how long it gets."
