How to Style and Maintain

Step 1 – Pick based on facial shape

Those with round faces should choose thinner haircuts or short sides. If your son has a square face, a haircut that can add volume is a good choice. Oval faces seem to fit almost all haircuts—styles based on your child’s comfort level and personality.

Make sure that they will not feel uncomfortable with the way you have their hair styled or cut.

Step 2 – Wash and brush regularly

If you have a child who seems to be not up to doing too many hair maintenance tasks, choose a shorter hairstyle or haircut so they can easily air-dry it.

Step 3 – Use a hair gel

Whether you go for a messy and curly style, like the curly undercut, or a neater and more polished look, a good hair relaxer and the best hair cream can make your little boy’s hair more manageable.
