This adorable baby boy's bouffant is turning heads

So amazing is Junior Cox-Noon’s hair that passers-by stop on the street to stare.

The baby boy is only nine weeks old, but he was born with a full head of lustrous hair – that isn’t showing any signs of disappearing.

Junior, from Brighton in the UK, had the internet abuzz after his mom, Chelsea Noon (32), shared pictures of him with The Mirror.

Chelsea, a mom of three, never expected her baby’s hair to be so spectacular. “When he was born it was quite thick but everybody said it would stop and that a lot of it would fall out,” Chelsea says.

“He hasn’t lost any – there’s none in the cot, none in his little chair or the pram. It’s literally just growing and it grows out not down so it sticks up.”

Errands now take a lot longer. She used to do all her grocery shopping in 40 minutes, but now it easily takes up to two hours because so many people stop her when they see her son and want to know more.

But Chelsea, who used to be a hairdresser, doesn’t plan on cutting her son’s hair. “I definitely don’t want to cut it. I want to see how long it actually does grow out.”

She has to blow-dry Junior’s hair because it takes too long to dry naturally. She has no idea why her youngest has so much hair – her other sons, Mitchell (4) and Preston (6), don’t have nearly as much. But the older boys love their baby brother’s hair and calls him “Baby Bear”, she says.

Chelsea doesn’t plan on have any more kids – she says the heartburn during this last pregnancy was particularly bad. So maybe there’s some truth to the old wives’ tale that the more heartburn a mother has during pregnancy, the more hair her baby will have.
