Farouk James - The 5-Year-Old Internet Sensation with a Whole Lotta HAIR

Viral Randomness...

Meet Farouk James. Over 158K followers on Instagram already have.



As his mom, Bonnie, told Tech Insider, “We hope to show the world that it's okay for boys to have a long curly crown.”

Yes, he's a HE and not a SHE as so many have mistakenly assumed - us included. With all that cuteness and hair, is it any wonder?

He's not only cute but he has style....

“When Farouk James was a baby, we knew that he was a special child,” Bonnie told Tech Insider. “[He] caught everyone's attention.”

Farouk has been modelling since he was nine months old. His mother started his Instagram when he was two years old.

“Farouk always got a lot of attention even before he became [popular on Instagram],” Bonnie told TI. “It would literally take me an hour for a 15-minute walk since I would get stopped over and over again with the same questions and compliments.”

Sometimes, Bonnie says it can become overwhelming, recalling a time people chased them trying to get a picture.

It can also become uncomfortable when strangers try to touch Farouk's hair.

"They fail to recognize that it's a part of his body," Bonnie said. "I have taught him to say, 'Thanks for the compliment, but please don't touch my hair.'"
