Embrace your boy’s active lifestyle with a haircut that suits his boundless energy. Remember that kids have soft feature and so it’s important that they have a hairstyle that brings out their soft and innocent look.

Well, boys will always be boys.  They’ll always go to the most exciting – dangerous in parent lingo – of places and do cartwheels and crawl while they’re at it.  They really are an active lot and that’s what they’re made for – to move.

 I bet you’d rather have a kid who runs and yells at the playground than someone who spends hours and hours in front of a video game.  So embrace your boy’s active lifestyle with a haircut that suits his boundless energy.

You can save the layered cuts and side-swept styles for the tween set.  But now that he’s in the early grades, short haircuts best suit him.  Besides, what looks great on that pop star won’t necessarily look good on your kid.  Remember that kids have soft feature and so it’s important that they have a hairstyle that brings out their soft and innocent look.

Short Buzz Haircuts

A lot of parents don’t actually gravitate to the buzz cut for their kids.  That’s because they think it’s synonymous to a total shave.  But the buzz cut doesn’t have to be an almost-bald look.  You can have your boy’s hair cut from ¾ of an inch to an inch if you don’t like it too short.  The best thing about this cut?  It’s definitely low maintenance.  Do I need to say more?

If the buzz cut still doesn’t appeal to you, then the next option would be to get him a cut where the hair is short on the top and then tapered on the sides, ears and back of neck.  You can either have the classic crew cut or the trendier fade cut.  What’s the difference?  Look for fade lines in the latter.  Fade lines determine where the hair transitions from one length to another.  It usually wraps all the way around the back of the head, essentially going from ear to ear.   There are usually one to two fade lines in this particular cut: 

CREW CUT  and Fade cut.

The crew cut and the fade cut can be very versatile.  With a little bit of gel or styling mousse, these cuts can be transformed into those hip spikey boys hairstyles.

  CAESAR CUT

If you still find the Crew cut or the Fade cut a little bit on the short side, then you’d probably go for the Caesar cut.  The hair is layered to a length of 1- 2 inches and then brushed forward to form a short fringe.  Alternatively, the front can be feathered which will lead to a French Crop hairstyle that’s guaranteed to make your little one extra-adorable.

So take your pick among these short haircuts.  Choices may be limited but they’re perfect for that little bundle of energy you’ve got in there.
