It is common knowledge that a good hair day is a good day in general. This applies to not only adults, but kids as well. So why not make every day a good one for your kids by giving them a fresh new look?
A good cut and well-groomed hair will go a long way. So if you are looking for a way to boost your child’s self esteem, talk to them about what their preferences are and what they might want to try. After all, if your child is going to experiment with anything why not try the hair? Tattoos and piercings are permanent, but hair can always be dyed back or grown out, so give your children the freedom they might want to take and find the new style that works for them.
Haircuts for the boys:
For the boys there are a variety of haircuts to choose from that suit their specific personalities and their everyday activities.
For an energetic one who loves to run around and play all day, go for a cut with slightly shaved hair for both the sides and the back. This helps to reduce volume and airs the head, helping your child keep cool.
For a relatively calm boy who would rather spend the day reading books or doing homework, go for a cut with a bang element. The short bangs can easily be swooped to the side or styled in order to prevent any botheration to your little genius.
For the boys who love playing with dinosaurs or those little chemistry sets, go for a short cut that amplifies the volume of the hair and then style it up with a side part, giving your child the most adorable look ever.
Parents with boys who have curly hair may like to experiment with Afro looks or go for cuts that reduce volume and carefully frame the face with the naturally curly strands.
If your son is really adventurous and would like to do something daring with his hair, a bold choice can be going with side designs. Start by doing a buzz cut to the sides of the head, and then any designs or even logos can be shaved in! This can also be done at the back of the head, near the nape of the neck for a less obvious yet visible cut. A popular choice for the design can be the logo of your kids favorite superhero! That is bound to make them feel super every day!
Haircuts for the girls:
For girls there are also many options to choose from. Every day can lead to a new hairstyle.
For girls who like to play dress up or have tea parties with their friends, go for a longer cut. This allows there to be more hair that can be done up and styled in many ways. Perfect for those fancy tea parties.
For girls who would much rather do their homework than play with toys, go for a shorter length cut. Hair cut in layers can be a good choice in these situations as it reduces volume while giving a lovely look on its own.
Girls who would rather have their hair out of the way, can go for a straight and medium cut that can easily be pulled into a ponytail or a cute little bun. No fuss, no muss.
For those girls who like to put on the red lipstick and dress up as a supermodel or a princess, go for a longer cut with the front strands relatively short. This opens up a world of new hairstyles to go with every new look.
For girls with curly locks there is a range of haircut lengths, varying from short and bouncy to long and wavy that will help flaunt those beautiful curls.
