    Five-year-old schoolboy Rean Carter has never had his hair cut since the day he was born.

    The youngster's flaxen curls are so long they tumble below the line of his belt and must be tied up at school.

    But his locks are set for the chop after Rean, sick of being mistaken for a girl, demanded a trip to the barber.

    Heartbroken mother Leeanne Smith said the haircut would be sponsored for charity.

    The 30-year-old, of Hylton Castle, Sunderland, said: "When Rean was born he had a lovely little curl of golden hair at the back of his head.

    "I just could never bear to get it cut, not even his fringe.

    "Now it flows all the way down his back to his bum and is very beautiful and soft.

    "When we go out he is often mistaken for a little girl - people say 'Isn't she gorgeous' - but it has never bothered him; he just laughs.

    "It was only when he joined school and had to have it tied back in a ponytail, for health and safety, that some of the other little boys began to make fun.

    "They said he could not play with them because he looked like a girl.

    "I've already cried at the thought of him having it cut, and will cry again when it actually happens."

    The youngster has raised £82 in sponsorship for the stunt, from friends, relatives, and classmates in his reception class at Grange Park Primary school, in Sunderland.

    The money will be donated to Sunderland Royal Hospital children's unit, where Ryan was admitted for a week-and-a-half in 2010, suffering from impetigo.

    Mother-of-two Leeanne, who works as a party organiser for Ann Summers, said the shorn locks would then be donated to a cancer charity.

    She and partner Neil Carter, 48, a painter and decorator, have never measured exactly how long the golden tresses are.

    She said: "Rean gets his curly hair from Neil's side of the family.

    "He said he wants it shorter, and spiky on top, like his friend Joseph.

    "The barber will be under strict instructions not to take too much off. There will be no use of clippers.

    "I've told him that he will have it cut by Easter or if not by then during the Easter holidays when he's off.

    "I don't wish he was a little girl and I don't see him that way, though I would love a daughter.

    "He is a proper little boy who likes Scooby Doo and cars and is getting into football.

    "His little brother Regan, who is two, has the same hair. I'll let his grow and then when he gets to Rean's age we can auction his off too."

    You shouldn't really grow long hair until you're adolescent anyways. Because you can't tell genders from prepubescent faces.

    Oh yeah, 1980th post. You know, because 80's.

    I did this a few years back with Locks-Of-Love. My hair had also gotten past my belt when I cut it off.

    It's always been tradition with my family to shave the son's hair when he's a baby or toddler. Something about the hair coming back stronger and thicker or some shit.

    Must've worked for me, because my hair is just voluptuous and volumetric.

    So his mother would rather cry at the fact that he wants he his hair cut, yet it doesn't bother her that he get bullied at school and has no friends because of it? Sounds like she's using her own child

    She did mention she would love a daughter, but doesn't want him to be a girl. I think she's just covering her ass (or stupid as fuck) and secretly does for some reason.

    Then again, I'm paranoid.

    I don't know who cries about having her son's hair cut. It would be better for her son to have it cut, rather than getting picked on at school.

    I can confirm this.

    Was around 9 and out swimming with my sister during the summer, and a guy passed us and said "Enjoy swimming, girls?".

    It would've been really funny if you had an announcers voice or some really low voice and said, "yes."

    I envy anyone who has long hair. I'd love to have it, but the work that comes with keeping it clean is insane. And for some reason my hair stops growing downwards after about 5cm and just kinda starts to defy gravity and angles upward.

    Might not sound like much but thanks to the coalition's NHS reforms this is actually triple the hospital's usual budget

    I am currently doing this, but not for charity. I'm selling it to the less-than-legal "Godfather Hair-Trades" where I sell my hair to the local mob.

    If you have really thick hair, it gets dirty fast. And it quickly gathers dandruff.

    This is to make wigs for children with hair loss due to a medical issue. Usually chemo. I've actually donated my hair to this charity twice.

    Its not really that hard, I only have to wash mine at least once a week, I do however spray conditioner on it every two days to keep it soft.
    If I straighten mine it'll be just below my shoulder blades.

    Its hardly any effort in it.

    Well, sprays and gels are expensive. I really don't want to spend money into making my hair look decent.
