I cut my toddler's hair and he has good hair with just enough body. I want some toddler boy hair cutting tips.
I am going to school right now for cutting hair. So I thought that I would just reply to your question . If you are using a clippers then lay a comb on the side of his head that is were a bone lies and where the comb leaves the head that is where you want to stop going up with the clippers. I'm not sure if this is going to help not but thought that i would just put that out there.
When my now 13 yr old son was a toddler I always used the clippers (or buzzers as we call them) on his hair. It's just about fool-proof and he looked so handsome with a tight cut. (05/29/2005)
Go around the head... cut the bangs the length you would like them to be. Cut the neckhair../ back of the head... the length and shape that you would like. Then... Of course, he will be ready to run... let him take a break and then... give him a toy and this time... with the comb in your right hand comb up some hair. Using your left middle finger and index finger grab the hair with those fingers. Pull up with those fingers until you have the desired length you need and then cut above your left fingers. Doing this all around the head will give you hair that is all the same length.
I usually go a little shorter by the sideburn area and at the base of the neck. Setting them on the bathroom counter looking into the mirror might help keep them still longer. Might take you all day the first time, until you are done cutting his hair. I told my DH that if I could cut my boys hair then... I could cut his. Since then, yes, I cut his too. You do not need to take a course in haircutting, just trim a little here and there, just to keep it under control and hey, if you make a mistake, it will grow back and you can try again. At the age of your toddler, he won't care what his hair looks like (wait until they are teenagers!).
My 17 and 18 year old boys have had short hair and long hair but always I comb evenly with the right hand and grab between the left fingers and then cut at the length they want it to be. Mom's haircuts are able to be done...now! and can be just a trim or a major cut...plus they are free and you don't have to wait for an appointment.
If he is a toddler, hair that is a little longer is cute on them... as long as it is not too long... then he might be called a girl.
I never liked the look of a "buzz" cut on kids. I like the look of hair on a child in a nice cut. Shorter around the ears and not long at the neck, and all the same length over the head. The natural body he has (like my boys have...not curly though) gives a fullness and doesn't look flat or stringy like some hair can be. Hey, once you cut it, maybe it even has a slight wave?
