A classic and easy-to-style comb-over is always the go-to style for young boys, featuring complex parts shaved into the sides to bring out natural volume and texture on top. Add color with pomade or gel designed for kids to add sculpting elements or add pop to this dapper look.
High Top Fade
Modern and professional, hairstyles for boys featuring a high top fade are stylish yet practical. This style pairs beautifully with comb-over, quiff, or man bun looks; it looks fantastic when combined with French crop or slick back haircuts. To achieve this look, ask your barber to shave down the sides and back of your hair to short levels before combing your top hair upward to form a pompadour style that will draw plenty of compliments from those around. It will look fashionable!
The Ivy League hairstyle is a highly versatile crew cut that works at short and longer lengths. This look features a complex part with a fade on either side and a natural top, which is then brushed forward with a light styling product for an attractive effect. Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory, is a big fan of this look. This version of Ivy League hair is easy to maintain and only needs minimal gel for a sleek, professional appearance. It makes an ideal look for school or college environments, especially when uniforms are mandatory.
A textured crop haircut looks fantastic on boys of all ages and requires little styling and maintenance. Additionally, this style works exceptionally well if your hair falls more towards thinner ends. For this look, add texture with hair spray or pomade. Comb through the top section while tousling longer strands to achieve either a messy or neat style. Try this style to showcase your individuality and show it off. It combines elements of both casual and high-fashion men’s styles.
Faux Hawk Fade
Faux hawks are an exciting way for boys who want to add an edge to their style. This haircut features a low side fade and longer hair to create an authentic mohawk effect. If you’re not quite ready for a full Mohawk, this style may be just what’s needed to give a casual yet chic look that’s easy to style – the spiky texture and hard part create an effortlessly cool everyday style that requires only minimal styling tools like hair cream or wax to achieve.
Mohawk with Shaved Sides
Short, top haircuts for boys are one of the best styles to opt for because they never become dull or plain, providing room for stylish texture experiments on top. Have your stylist shave or taper the sides of your son’s hair while leaving more length on top for a classic swept-back style with short bangs. Finish it with some hair gel for an instant style upgrade, and your son is ready. This daring and modern style is ideal for active children who excel at academics. Combining elements from the faux hawk and quiff styles, it works on all hair types.
A textured quiff is one of the most fabulous styles for boys with long hair, featuring a choppy fringe and tapered sides for maximum volume. Finish this look off with light pomade to add shape and hold to its spiky finish. To achieve this look, begin by towel drying your hair, pre-styling with sea salt spray, and using Regal Gentleman Matte Clay as a finishing touch for an undisrupted, natural finish that can easily be reworked throughout the day.
Boys’ haircuts have become more stylized. Gone are yesteryear’s dorky mullets and rat tails; today’s barber-skilled cuts offer a sleek, modern take on masculinity. A taper fade is a close-cropped haircut that reduces the length of hair on the back and sides of your head, helping to play up proportions and create balance in men with fuller faces. Be sure to understand the distinction between fade and taper to effectively communicate with your barber.
One of the top styles for boys with wavy hair, this boyish haircut offers an alternative take on faux hawk and quiff styles. Pair this haircut with a low taper fade with a hard part for a dapper finish, or leave both sides unshaven for an eye-catching style. If your son sports naturally straight fringe, consider adding texture with light pomade for an eye-catching and casual finish, or use medium-hold pomade to achieve low-key yet stylish spikes that still look polished and sharp.
