A baby has become a tiny celebrity thanks to her thick hair, which makes her look like Despicable Me’s Agnes.
Primrose Autumn Loveridge has a full head of hair which is already six inches long – and it’s still growing.
29-year-old mum Beccy May Cooper says she’d never expected her eight-month-old would have so much hair.
She said: ‘The first thing my mum said when she was born was “I can’t believe her hair”. It was jet black and there was so much of it.
‘We don’t know where she got it from because I had very little when we were younger and my fiancée already has a receding hair line.
‘We weren’t expecting it at all.’
Beccy says that even leaving the house with her daughter can be overwhelming, because a quick trip to the shops turns into an hour-long affair with people constantly stopping Beccy and Primrose to compliment her hair.
Beccy said: ‘She gets so much attention when we go out.
‘If you just nip to the shop you end up being there for an hour because people just stop and start talking about it.
‘They say they’ve never seen a baby with so much hair. Especially the older generation – they can’t believe it.
‘We joke that she looks like Agnes from Despicable Me. She’s so like her in personality as well.
‘She’s so squeaky and excitable all the time, she’s such a happy, bubbly baby and she’s so talkative.
‘People also say she looks like a Cabbage Patch doll, which makes me laugh.’
According to Beccy, her daughter’s favourite thing is a blow dry, which causes her to get the giggles.
Beccy said: ‘When I’ve washed it I try to flick it up but it’s so long now it won’t stand up anymore, it just falls down.
‘I used to use a soft brush but now I’m using a comb because it gets quite knotty when she’s sleeping.
‘When I brush it she has to hold her own brush in her hands, she’s such a character. Every couple of weeks we give her a cool blow dry.
‘She absolutely loves it, as soon as the hairdryer is switched on she starts bouncing up and down and giggling – it’s hilarious.
‘When she sits watching telly she curls her hair around her tiny little fingers. I think it’s a comfort for her.
‘I like to put it up in little pigtails or a pony tail so it looks like a pineapple.
‘We’ve not taken her to the hairdressers yet. When she turns one we’re planning on taking her for her first trim.’
Though her hair is still growing, Primrose has already landed work thanks to her locks.
She’s been working with hair companies and many more brands are hoping to work with her too.
Beccy said: ‘I put some pictures up and was contacted by a couple of brands who asked if she could model their clothes.
‘It started from there and now she’s a brand rep for around 20 companies.’
She’s now a rep for brands such as Too Much Cute UK, Baby Haute Couture, 4 Trendy Kids and Eco Brat.
Already described as a ‘diva’ by her mum, Beccy added: ‘I think she’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
‘I wake up every day and stare at her thinking ‘I can’t believe she’s mine’.
‘I’d always dreamed of having a little girl and being able to dress her up. She’s just perfect.’
