My son knows how much I like to hear your alls opinion so will you answer this for me?

Would you let a 10 year old boy cut his own hair with clippers?
Thanks. He's waiting for some answers.

  • He's the one who has to walk around with the haircut he created. I'd be interested in seeing what he would come up with. I choose my battles... it'll grow back.

  • I'm saying no, and he's saying yes by the way.

  • No, I would think that is too dangerous, even supervised. It may also lead him to think that he can do it unsupervised.

  • Thank you lilbit. I am thinking the same thing. I also think that it is hard for an adult to do a good job, much less a 10 year old. Guess he just thinks I am being over protective.

  • There is a very good chance the results would be less than what he'd be comfortable with. I don't think a skilled barber does his own hair. Now a buzz cut is a different IF your aim is to take off all the hair..

  • No.

    And that would pretty much be the end of the discussion.

  • Only if you are going for the complete bald look!. I let my son do his job, then I cleaned it up.

  • I would help him let him hold the clippers and you help hold them also, also it all depends on what kind of hair cut? if he is shaving his hair short i would let him his hair will grow back if he messes it up.

  • Yes, my son loves his head shaved. He cuts them with the clippers and we go back and make sure it's even. :-) Sorry, if it's not what you wanted to hear! LOL

  • Lol, Caoimhe_Oona. That is exactly what I am telling him. One mistake and we'll have to shave it all off. Thanks ladies for your answers.
