Believe it or not Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West's daughter North just turned five. The first child for the couple is celebrating her birthday with Mom and Dad in NYC, where she's been seen strolling and enjoying ice cream.
One thing was different about little North though and fans of the family are not happy with Kim. Instead of rocking her natural curls, North can be seen wearing her hair in a sleek high pony where her hair has obviously been straightened.

Now that you’re 5, don’t you think it’s the mature thing to try to be nice to your brother!?! pic.twitter.com/5TYpDX1tAe— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 15, 2018
While this is the first time that North was seen with straight hair, it's not the first time Kim's been criticized for her parenting.
Fans reacted with mixed emotions after seeing the recent photos, some felt it was unfair to straighten a "baby's" hair while others understood that North had probably made the request herself. When your mom and the whole family are major celebrities it's not at all surprising that North would be inspired by all the glam she sees.
North West is still a baby and has straight hair. I know we all had straight hair too at that age but it’s 2018! The enlightened YouTube era! Come on KimberYe get it together— Tiss’Challa (@NaturallyTiss) June 15, 2018
If I see one more tweet about North West's hair being straight I'm gonna fucking deck someone. Stop worrying about heat damage before she's 10 n shit, she obviously must like her hair that way. Let her live ffuckk. Y'all always say bleach will kill my hair guess what SOFT ASFUCK— Caitlin |-/ ♓🐙 (@BluryFacedfreak) June 15, 2018
I love North West's hair! Whether it's naturally curly or straighten hairstyle. She's a cutie pie whose curious and eager to try new things. Most children at her age begin to develop greater independence and creativity. 🦋— Beauty B♡X by Monique (@encour_11) June 15, 2018
Kim has taken such good care of North’s curls over the years. The comments about North’s hair being straightened is tired. First of all, mind your own children 🙄😑— KIM WEST SOURCE (@KIMWESTSOURCE_) June 15, 2018
Y’all stop talking about North West hair cause y’all know when y’all were her age y’all begged to have your hair straight on birthday’s and Christmas— 9/26 ♎ (@That_GirlLauren) June 15, 2018
It doesn't look like North is unhappy about her hair. She actually can be seen serving up some smiles and real attitude, as her Mom pointed out in her tweets.
Fans may be stressing about heat damage but with all the money the Kardashians pay for top-notch hair stylists, we doubt they'll ruin North's beautiful curls. Happy 5th birthday North West!
