Is curling or dying a child’s hair really “sexualizing” them?

I’ve heard of a celebrity who dyed her grade school child’s hair and people thought she sexualized the little girl. Their welfare seems more than fine. She is homeschooled, plays sports, and her parents can afford the best resources.

Their welfare seems more than fine. She is homeschooled, plays sports, and her parents can afford the best resources. But for some reason people thought this hair dying (later on curling) business will make her vulnerable to pedophiles. The ONLY thing that can possibly make her at the slightest risk is being in spotlight or the media showing their lives. Even then, this child seems to have adults to protect her IMO. She’s safer than most kids today with all the resources provided. Anyways, it was just some blonde highlights that the kid asked for. Is it sexualizing them if you alter your child’s hair for aesthetic purposes?
