Fame at a young age

Sporting bouffant hair at just nine weeks old, Junior Cox-Noon turns heads wherever he goes.His mother says it now takes her two hours to do the weekly supermarket shop instead of 40 minutes because so many people stop to say hello to him.But the strapping infant enjoys the fringe benefits of being the centre of attention – and cries if she tries to put a hat on him to speed things up.Most newborn babies have little more than a wisp of feathery hair on their head.

But Junior, born at Brighton General Hospital weighing 10lb on July 30, has so much he has been nicknamed ‘Baby Bear’.All the midwives and health visitors said it would fall out because baby hair usually comes out when they rub their head on the back of the cot, but he hasn’t lost any of it and it has grown.

When I take him with me on the weekly shop in Asda everyone does a double-take and says, “Oh my God, look at the baby’s hair,” and they have to touch it. He doesn’t seem to mind and gets a little a smirk on his face.

‘People say to me are you going to cut it, but it’s too unique so I’m going to leave it as it is.’

She does, however, blow-dry his hair because it would take too long naturally.

Her other sons, Mitchell, six, and Preston, four, did not share Junior’s hairiness at birth.
