It is never too early to start thinking about your kid’s next hair style. The key to a great look for kids is not to make any abrupt changes… Unless this is something specific that you are looking to achieve. Adding layers or bangs is a great way to make an old style new again, for a special reason, or a change in season.

For boys you can give them a spiky or longer messy looking haircut with nicely cleaned up edges or a choppy crop is perfect for boys with a little bit of natural wave in their hair. Another low maintenance yet trendy style is “spikes.”  If your kid wants to keep his hair long then you can apply it with soft spikes.  Your son will surely be the coolest little guy in his school or in the playground. If you’re looking to go completely military on him them then the classic clean cut or undercut is your best bet!


Girls that wish to have longer hair need a haircut that can be easily donned into a pony tail or braid. Unless the hair can be easily tie into a neat pony tail, kids will tend to look messy all the times. A Bob haircut is a preferred choice for little girls. Similarly pixie haircuts are equally good with little girls who cannot manage their own hair.


Fun styling tips:  Don’t worry about blow drying this hairstyle flat or straight. Let it dry naturally or tousle while blow drying for a textured effect. You can finish the look off with wax for a piecey look or just leave as is. If your child has curly hair, opt for longer hair that can be placed in a single or multiple ponytails if need be. Layers may also help with combing. Such hairstyles for girls look good with frills, bows, pins, rubber bands.


If your girl is a little grown up, she can have bangs with a blunt cut in the back. The length will depend on the child’s facial features.


Trust your stylist’s advice about fall styles, and work with them to develop a personalized look to maximize the hair’s best impression. Kids are so irresistible because they are so cute even if they have the tendency to be mischievous sometimes.  We can’t help but admire their cute smiles, sparkling eyes and chubby cheeks.  When choosing kids haircuts be sure that it will not hinder their fun and enjoyment.
