I don’t understand boys hair.

I have recently started a new collection of photos of Ben, they are names random hair style of the day.

About a year ago I chopped lots of his hair off as it was still so thin but had grown in weird waves and sticky out bits, it has now got a good bit thicker but it grows in lots of different directions.  And I just have no idea what you are meant to do with it.

One answer is cut it short, but I love the longer style and I may have cried a bit last time I cut it short.

It is the front bit especially that I struggle with as I don;t really like the fringe on boys look and his hair isn’t actually that straight and thick for it anyway.  I am terrified og giving him a mullet too!

But it is completely random every morning


So at the moment I am doing the responsable mature thing and ignoring the issue.


The nursery photos came home this week and some are lovely but in every single one all I can see is the flick of hair to the left, I can’t focus on anything else at all!

So what do you do to your boy’s hair?

Do you go to a barber or hairdressers or do the attack with scissors thing?

    Fraser is 15 months old. We took him to the barbers on his 1st birthday and he went again about a month ago. His hair looks really smart now. Another plus is that it gets him used to going. The barber has a board he puts across the arms of the chair and Fraser sits on that. Last time he refused to have the cloak thing put on so his clothes got very hairy. See if you can find a traditional Italian barbers – usually called Tony’s or Mario’s. But be clear if you don’t want it too short!

    I took my son in to the barber when he was about 16 months old. He didn’t like it at all the first time but got comfortable with it pretty quickly. was much better from there on out.

    My son’s hair is the exact same! If left to its own devices, I’d say it would grow nice and curly (which isn’t that much of a surprise considering the mop of curls on my own head). But I hate chasing him around the place with the hair dryer after a bath, so I prefer to keep it short. I wouldn’t trust myself to cut it, and the one and only time we tried to go to a normal hairdresser was a disaster, so instead we find ourselves forking out a fortune for hair cuts at Kiddie Kuts in our local mothercare. The distraction of the car or aeroplane seat, and Barney on the TV is enough to get him to sit still while his hair is cut.
