There’s only a month before school starts again. “Back to school” kids haircuts need not be boring. Choose a salon specialised in kids’ haircuts or at least one that does kids haircuts decently. Haircuts for kids should be low maintenance because, unlike those for adults, they shouldn’t need much styling every day. Here are the top haircuts for kids for when they go back to school:
Kids Haircuts For Girls
1. Bob Haircut
Hair, either chin or shoulder-length, is practical for girls since shorter hair lengths don’t tend to become ratted or messy. Because it would be difficult to tie your little girl’s hair back, her hair needs a shortened length in fronts like a fringe or bangs. If you want to style a bob haircut, you can pull side sections back for braiding and then pinning them together at the back.
2. Hair With Bangs
Girls almost always have bangs cut straight and across the forehead above the eyebrows. Bangs are more suitable for girls with straight hair because curly or wavy hair will find it difficult to lie flat against a forehead and therefore need some styling. Whether a girl’s hair is long or short at the back, bangs are to trim regularly to prevent hair from getting into her eyes.
3. Layered Haircut
A layered haircut is ideal if your little girl has long hair that extends to her shoulder blades. If she has wavy hair to boot, the layers can reduce the frizz found at the hair ends. Layers make the hair easier to brush since it’s less thick. You can style this haircut with pigtails, braids, or a ponytail.
4. Side-swept Bangs Kids Haircuts
This haircut is suitable for girls older than seven since they don’t generally play as hard as the younger ones. Your older girls’ bangs can be swept off to either side or parted neatly in the middle, and then you sweep off to the sides. Also, you can pin off the longer-cut bangs to one side with a barrette.
5. Curly Haircut
Cutting your girl’s hair in shallow layers and then drying it with some mild styling product can keep this haircut unique. Scrunch your girl’s hair to get maximum volume from her natural curls. The point is to get that tousled look by defining her curls.
Kids Haircuts For Boys
1. The Spike
This is one of the kids haircuts for a little boy whose buzz cut has grown out. Gel works through your little boy’s hair, then spike up at the top and smooth out at the sides. This will add texture to the overall look.
2. The Buzz Cut
This is ideal for sporty, non-stop action little men. It doesn’t require styling here, although some styling cream can give this haircut an edgy but fun look.
3. The Surfer Kids Haircuts
Long layers are now trendy in boys’ kids haircuts, and this one is no exception. Think California surfers! Styling cream in a small amount – about the size of a quarter – is run through your little boy’s hair in several directions to acquire that certain “piece-y” appeal. The styling cream provides a natural hold while leaving the hair with a perfectly styled look the whole day.
4. The Mad Men Haircut
Sleek, sophisticated, and chic, your boy can have the Don Draper look in “Mad Men.” You apply styling cream throughout your boy’s hair to reduce the amount of frizz. A side part is created with a comb, after which a small amount of styling cream brushes throughout his hair for a polished, even finish. Comb hair from the straight down part to the shorter side. The longer side can create the “sweep” by combing hair in a downward direction until the forehead’s middle and then combing upwards to place all hair behind his ears.
The sides are shortened so as not to cover the neck and ears. The top remains longer at length, just below the eyebrows in the front and the ears’ tips on the sides. The fringe kids haircuts bring attention to your little boy’s eyes, and the curve at the tips make this cut trendy.
