The weather has turned warm and humid, so it's a great time to take off all your boy's hair. I've got the clippers oiled up and ready to go. When son gets home from school today, I will sit him down and shave off that winter mop-top. I use a number 1 blade on top, which takes the hair down to 1/8 inch. I use a bare clipper on the back and sides, which literally shaves the hair down to the skin. You may have heard this haircut called a "fade." This is such a great summer haircut for boys. It is maintenance free. A quick wipe with a washcloth is all that's needed to care for it. I encourage you to try this haircut on your boy. You'll both love it!
Please let me know if you need any tips on clippers, haircuts, techniques, etc. I've given my boy this haircut every summer since he was three (he's now 12), so I'm an expert. Have a great summer, everyone!
