Choosing from the Many Haircuts for Children?
In the past, haircuts for children were a relatively straightforward affair. Boys got short cuts or military cuts, and girls had straight, long hair. But over the years, different fashion trends have come and gone, leaving their mark on the types of haircuts now available to children - and there are a dizzying array of styles from which to choose.
Part of the reason for this is simply the intensity of the search for new styles. The fashion industry (and celebrity brands) depend on being able to continually churn out new looks (even if they’re a rehashing of something that has come before). Over time, these styles work their way down into the market for children’s haircuts, making life a bit more complicated for parents.
Which style should they choose for their little boy or girl? What is trendy right now? And will things change in the future? Here are some suggestions for hairstyles we offer at Fantastic Sams on Sahara that can look great on your children!
The Caesar Cut
The Layered Cut
Although the “bowl cut” was the go-to haircut for a generation of young boys growing up in the 1980s and 1990s, today’s aesthetic standards are a little more rigorous. The layered cut is the modern-day equivalent to the bowl cut, giving young boys a flowing appearance to their hair, rather than the static look of the bowl. This sophisticated haircut looks great all year round.
The Pixie Cut
The pixie cut was first used by women in the fashion industry with fine hair. But it’s since become a go-to for young girls for whom flowing hair doesn’t suit. Pixie cuts involve leaving the hair on the top of the head relatively long while cutting back the hair at the back and sides. Most pixie cuts leave an extended portion of hair at the front which can be swept either side of the forehead, or just left dangling like a fringe.
The Afro Puff
Afro puffs can look great for children of African-American ethnicity. The natural qualities of the hair allow it to be bunched in different ways on the scalp, either as a single Afro or as a series of bunched Afros, usually two near to the back of the head.
Remember, when choosing from the many children haircuts for your child, it’s best to pick one that helps to hide their flaws and accentuate their strengths. A great hairstyle can work wonders for your child’s sense of confidence and self-worth so making the right choice of haircut for children is essential. Need to setup an appointment for your child?
