Haircuts for Boys

A lot of you asked for this one, so I waited until my nephew needed a haircut and then begged my sister to do a video tutorial.  Here you go! 

Hopefully you'll now be saving lots of money on haircuts.  Don't worry if the first haircut isn't perfect.  You'll get better and better and pretty soon no one will be asking if he cut his own hair :)  Just kidding.  It's not that hard and you can totally do it!

Thanks for stopping by!  See you tomorrow!

Thanks so much! My sister in law does hair and showed me how to, but it's nice to have it on video to refer to again. : )

Myra said...

By the way, he is so cute!

Cari said...

OMGosh!! Could he be any more adorable?!

I have been cutting my sons hair for a while and still haven't gotten the hang of it. This is going to help a lot. Hopefully no more lines! Thx so much for sharing.

that was great. Cam is quite the comedian! We buzz cut my son's hair all summer but needed this tutorial for something different for winter!

Saura said...

This is great! Your nephew is super cute. I was just wondering - my son has curly hair - do you think it makes a difference when cutting it?

The Wifeyness said...

I might just try this for my husband! Thanks for posting this tutorial!!

Brie said...

Thanks for posting this video. Your nephew is so cute! Don't have any boys of my own, but I will send this to my sister who cuts my two nephews' hair.

Wendy Leow said...

This is SO great!!! I love the styling tip at the end! And Cam is seriously cute!! Thanks!!

Erica @ Acire Adventures said...

Thanks for the awesome video! This will be super helpful. I've cut my sons hair terribly a couple times, so I just take him to a salon. This just might convince me to try again. :)

I thought this was so useful and so cute. Frank did a great job sitting ~! He is so funny.
I used to cut my boys hair with this kind of clippers and ended up with them looking like they had bowls on top of their heads..
My father-in-law took over and the boys were much happier.. This video would of been really helpful back then..Thanks

Thanks so much for sharing! My MIL and I take turns cutting my 3 year old's hair after he SCREAMED BLOODY MURDER the first and only time we took him to an actual salon. LOL

Thanks for this! I cut my boys hair (except the last time for pictures) and man, it is not easy! This will help me!

Taylor Swim said...

Cam is the cutest! I love the haircut tutorial. I do it pretty much the same but you added a few things that I don't do. Good thing you posted today because tonight is haircut night for us. Thanks ladies.

Leigh Anne said...

Thanks so much for this video tutorial! I learned alot, but am still a chicken. Maybe when they get a bit older, I will get up the nerve to try it myself. Your sister's tips helped alot :)

Jody said...

Thanks!!! You are awesome!!

Celeste Lux said...

This was extrordinarily helpful! Thanks for posting!

Candace Staheli said...

Holy. He is the cutest boy ever. I do hair and this was a great tutorial!

Justine said...

He is super cute! Great job!

When I was younger I HATED haircuts. And to this day, I still do. I think it is because my mom ALWAYS cut too much off. So now whenever I go to get a "trim" I still panic.


Just Better Together

What a cute model!

I tried once with my son & my husband made fun of it, haven't tried again.

Finnskimo said...

Thanks! My poor 14 year old son has only ever had ONE haircut. And that's because I am good at that ONE haircut! The short fade to a 1" guard on top.

Anyone who was married to someone in the Navy will know exactly what I mean!!!!

Thanks for the Tute!

Tiffany West said...

Cute boy! And thank you! I just started cutting my boys hair, and this answered all of my questions! I will be refering to it more than once I can assure you!

The Lassie & Laddie said...

He's sooo adorable!!

D & H said...

My haircut for boys is similar. When I'm doing the back, I start with the bigger clippers first and then the smaller--I think it's easier to blend in that way. On the top of his head I go over it in both directions, front to back and left to right, and that usually keeps it from having ridges.

Tonya said...

Thank you for this! I hope I can be brave enough to try this and save us $11 - $12 on haircuts (per head). Your nephew is SUPER cute! What a great model he was. Lots of personality. Loved it.

Kris @ everywhereorange.com said...

Another great video!! Thanks soooo much!!!! Cant wait to get those scissors out and cut some hair! Great tip on the rounded scissors, that was what was stopping me before!!

The Smith Family said...

He is so cute! And I totally think I could do this! Seriously! I am going to try here in a few days because my sons hair is about there....I'm nervous, but I'll just keep it fairly long so if I have to have it fixed they can fix it short! Tell your sister thanks!!!

Verenice said...

He was the cutest little boy! Now, if I can only get my husband to trust me to cut my son's hair. First time around with my daughter I cut her bangs a little too short. Whoops! Thanks for sharing.

Jonathan and Raechel said...

What a sweet little boy! Ahhhh! I am excited to be able to cut my boy's hair - he is 7 months so it's still just whispies, but thanks for the video!

Melinda said...

Thank you! I will definitely be giving this a try when my boys are due for haircuts.

Tori said...

Thank you. My hubby usually buzzes my son's hair. Now I might try cutting it sometime. Do you think you could give one of these tutorials for girls?

Bri Sin said...

I have been cutting my hubby's and kiddo's hair for as long as little man has been alive. This has helped with some of those little things I wasn't so sure about. Thanks a mil! And yeah, he's SUPER adorable!

Kira said...

Okay, girlies, I'm goin' for it. I have three boys to cut, so with the money I would have spent at Great Clips I'm heading to walmart for the kit. Thanks SO MUCH!!!!

Aunt Mary said...

I had a real flash back (and with my Grey hair it is way back) to before the days of Dipity-doo, they had this white gooey stuff my Father affectionally called "Camel Snot" that he put in my brother's hair to get their flat tops to stand up. Then they came out with butch wax and the boys didn't mind wearing that instead of the C.S.!!! I had a good laugh. watching the demo. Thanks!

Alisonswhim said...

That was awesome! Just what I needed. Thank you so much!

Oh my goodness - he is way too cute!! Thanks for the tutorial :) When my little guy is old enough for his hair cut, I am sure I will be referring to this!!

Mari J said...

I want him, how much?

The Mom of 'em said...

I JUST cut my son's hair for the first time on my own last weekend. I could have SERIOUSLY used this tutorial before-hand! Oh well...I've bookmarked it for next time! thanks!!!

L said...

Thanks so much for this! I have a little guy who has hair that grows fast like mine. It's nice to see how you cut it with the clippers - I'd been doing the whole head by hand. This will be very useful!

Emily said...

Thanks I've been doing my son's hair every since he was 5 mnths since it grows so crazy fast. I'm excited to try and do the spiked hair. I usually just cut his hair short short but this seems fun. I guess I'll let his hair grow out a bit and then take him somewhere and tell them to spike cut it and then do it from then on once its achieved by looking back at this video. Thanks again to you and sis!

Tasha said...

Okay, that was awesome. Love you for this one!! I cut all 3 of my boys hair, but I have the hardest time with the longer hair. I have been trying to find a good video on it. Thank you, thank you!! And that little boys was adorable :) I think I need to have my boys watch how good he sat the whole time :)

Unknown said...

Thank you for this! Just watched the video with my son. He is TERRIFIED of haircuts and won't let anyone cut it! So I have to sneak in 3 and 4 cuts a day so he can see. The problem is that I never get them straight and he looks a little crazy. He loved watching Cam and promised he's let me cut his hair like that. I replayed the part where you asked him if it hurt and Cam said "no" like 5 times so he could really grasp the idea that there isn't anything to be afraid of. Fingers crossed he makes good on his promise! I soo appreciate this wonderful tutorial!!

Delia said...

This was great. It is nice to learn from a DIY mom instead of a professional. I understood this much better than when I have watched my cosmetologist friends. :) Thanks!

Anel said...

thanks i've been wanting to cut my son's hair but the first try was a disaster i'm glad you posted this i watched it a couple of times to get it right, hope i do well

Lady Winterhart said...

thanks for posting this! i've just been buzzing my kids heads to 3/4". so nice to have something else to try.

Mika said...

Hey Cheri, I featured this post on "5 Great Finds" this week!

Thanks so much for putting up the video for our benefit!

I told my son I was going to give him a haircut...but I must have taken too long to get started, because he got a pair of scissors and got started on his fringe! Whoops!

Heather at Happy Chippy Junk said...

One word.. Flowbee!!! Google it! Watch it on You Tube! Then buy one!! SOO FUN! I got mine at DI for 5 bucks!

I can't thank you enough for that video! I have been using the clippers to cut my boy's hair on the sides and back, but have been terrified to cut the top. I'm so ready to try this next haircut and keep that $30 (for two cuts) in my wallet.
