We can all agree – being a Mom is a full-time job. We tend to carry a lot of responsibility when it comes to the smooth running and maintenance of a home. Now, during this pandemic, many moms haven’t been comfortable taking kids to public places including barbershops.
And while social distancing has been effective in slowing the spread, it has left our little boys looking a bit shaggy. But. The good news is that you don’t have to wait for the COVID-19 pandemic to end for you to take your son(s) to the barbershop.
Instead, you can do it yourself at home. It’s quite easy. All you need is a little bit of skill, patience, and the right tools; some of which can be found on this informative post about 2021’s top-rated clippers. Anyway, here are five of the easiest kid haircuts to try at home:
1. Buzzcut Haircut
This is probably the easiest and fastest DIY haircut that can be done by just about anyone. A buzz cut is often a bit plain and evenly sized; it doesn’t require styling, won’t need frequent maintenance, plus, it won’t cost you much to maintain. And the best part is that it can be good for all kinds of events including Prom.
However, as good as it may sound, this haircut tends to look and feel unadorned sometimes. It’s not something you’d call fashionable or in-fashion. Moreover, seeing as there may be a little bit of scalp exposure, it isn’t ideal for cold winter weather.
But, as I said, it’s quite easy to pull off and works great for any occasion.
2. A Taper Fade Haircut
If you’re looking for a short yet stylish summer haircut, consider doing a Taper Fade. For those familiar with Tapers, a fade is almost the same; just a bit shorter or closer to the skin (i.e. hair gradually shortens as you move from the top to back/sides of the head).
Now, there are different types of fades available; e.g. high, medium, and low fades. However, the best results are often from pairing another hairstyle with a fade. For example, you can do a Pompadour Fade or a Mohawk Fade. The resulting haircut will definitely be brag-worthy.
3. A Pompadour Haircut
The Pompadour is a great choice for anyone looking for a stylish, easy-to-do, and trendy haircut. This classic hairstyle is best suited for kids with voluminous hair. Plus, it’s ideal for the winter weather.
However, note that a Pomp is a high-maintenance style; that requires constant attention. Moreover, you’ll have to spend more on hair care products like pomade to maintain a neat and good-looking Pompadour.
4. A Side-Part Haircut
The Side Part is just as stylish and trendy as the Pomp. The only difference is that this haircut is much easier to style and maintain. Basically, all you have to do is:
- Trim your kid’s hair to a desirable length.
- Apply some pomade or styling gel to it and then create a part on either side of their head as shown at the end of the video.
Simple, fast, and easy, right? However, you should note that – much like the Pompadour – Side Parts need some TLC and can also be a bit costly to maintain.
5. A Quiff Haircut
Lastly, you can never go wrong with a Quiff. It always looks fresh, in-season, classy, and charming on little kids. Plus, you can couple this hairstyle with a taper or fade for an improved look. And the best part is that it’s easy to pull off.
The only thing you need to note about the Quiff is that it requires a lot of attention (and haircare products). So, are you ready and confident enough to give it a try? If so, go for it. Remember, practice makes perfect. Therefore, the more you cut your kid’s hair the easier it will be for you to do an awesome job. Good luck!
