Cute Haircuts For Toddler Boys

By Rich Krafting


Whether it’s the first haircut or one of many, these cuts make the most of fine, curly and thick hair types. Whether your kid is 2-, 3- or 4-years old, these are some super cute haircuts for toddler boys.

While you can still choose their outfits and haircuts, have fun with your favorite styles. For some that is cutting edge trends while others prefer classic looks. We’ve got you covered for both.

Many kids are averse to brushing and styling but that’s fine. A quality haircut helps ensure that hair looks great in any state. Just like adults, kids don’t need to wash hair every day. This is an age when many kids boycott hair washing or the bath altogether but at this age, too much soap can be drying for skin and hair.

So where do you take kids to get these cute cuts? It depends on the kid. If you’re confident that your boy can sit still, with or without some bribery, most stylists will be happy to help. However, for the many boys that don’t enjoy haircuts, a kid-specific salon can be the best. Another option is a barber, assuming they are okay with working on kids. Barbers can provide speedy haircuts that are complete in 15-30 minutes before the squirming starts.

Now on to the boys haircuts.

1. Toddler Boy Haircut for Fine or Thin Hair

It can take a long time for boys with light-colored locks to grow enough hair to cut. In that case, it’s all about clean up rather than going short. This combed over side part haircut keeps enough fine and/or thin hair to cover the scalp without any scraggly edges. It is adorable styled like this or with a case of bed head.

2. Crop Fade Haircut for Toddler Boys
