How to Do a Boy Haircut?
Even if you screw up, it grows back. I think it’s only fair to start by saying this. So as long as you understand that it takes time to practice … you’re good to go. You could be one of the lucky ones and nail it from the beginning, which would be great. But more often than not, you’ll need to trial and error a few times before it’s perfect.
So the answer to “How to doa boy haircut”, if you’re not a hairstylist, just get your scissors in and … cut.
A piece of personal advice after being my son’s personal hairstylist for the last many months — use a haircut kit that is similar to what you see in a professional hair salon. It really helps making crisp cuts rather than crippled cuts.
