30 Brand New Haircuts For Toddler Boys

By Rich Krafting


Whether it’s the first haircut or one of many, these toddler boy haircuts are cute and cool. While you can still choose their outfits and haircuts, have fun with your favorite hairstyles. That can be the latest short trends, longer classic styles, or something that suits your boy’s unique personality. We’ve got you covered for all kinds of styles for fine, curly, and thick hair.

At this age, many little boys fight hair brushing and washing but that’s fine. A great haircut will look as good with bedhead as it does when it is freshly washed. And if bathtime and shampoo are a struggle, that’s okay too. Just like adults, kids don’t need to wash their hair every day.

So, where do you get these cute cuts? It depends on the kid. If you’re confident that your child 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 with interesting chairs and TV can be the best choice. Another option is a barber, assuming they are okay with working on kids. Barbers can provide speedy haircuts that are complete before the squirming starts. If you’re confident, hair can also be cut at home with the right type of scissors.

Check out these pictures of 30 toddler boy haircuts for 2-, 3-, and 4-year old boys.
