How to do a boy haircut?

Even if you screw it up, it will grow back. I think it’s only fair to start by saying that. So as long as you understand that practice takes time…you can start. You could be one of the lucky ones and nail it right from the start, which would be great. But more often than not, you’ll need a few trials and errors to get to perfection.

So the “how to cut a boy’s hair” answer, if you’re not a hairstylist, just put your scissors in… cut.

After working as my son’s personal hairstylist for the past few months, I have a piece of personal advice – use a hair cutting kit similar to what you’d find in a professional hair salon. It really helps to make crisp cuts instead of mutilated ones.
