  • I'd say cut it really short; crew cut is always cute on little guys!

  • I agree a nice short cut will be easy to take care of

  • take him to a barber and ask them what to do with a little boy, its better than a salon for boys

  • Can't go wrong with a crew cut on a little boy.

  • I think in the warmer months hair cut short is great but in the winter not so much. My son had hair like your sons and if you get it cut a certain way you can train the hair to be combed back in a certain way that you like provided it's been cut to grown that way.

  • Very cute boy! I would ask them to cut it a little shorter around the sides (and around the ears) while leaving it a little longer on the top, ask them to texturize the bangs a little too. They can leave some sideburns, if you like them. This is a haircut that doesn't look long, shaggy and wild, but not as close as a crew cut either. Good luck!

    I wouldn't take him to a barber, they tend to know one or two ways to cut. Take him to a childs place like kidsnips or snippets, if you have one, with these directions. They should know just what to do!

  • oops, meant to add that my child has done a few commercials and he has some crazy blond hair too. This is the cut I usually ask for, it always turns out well. Good luck!!!
