My son's hair is starting to get fluffy and curly... I'm not really a fan of the side curls but not quite ready to get rid of all his soft, original "virgin hair" lol


So... I was thinking a mohawk would be perfect, but how do you plot out where to buzz? There is still not enough hair to pin up yet... any suggestions?

My DS doesn't really have a "mohawk" but he has what we call a "curly top". Since his hair tends to be nice and curly on the top but frizzy and wild on the sides and back. The cut ends up being a little bit wider than a mohawk would be but it looks super cute on him and he's always getting compliments. We just use hair clippers to trim the sides up to where a natural side part would be on each side and then up the back to where the swirly centre of his hair is (I have no idea what this is called, lol). It's easy and cute. When the top gets long and the curls are falling into his eyes, we just snip them with the scissors. A friend is always telling me that DS's haircut looks like Nicole Richie's son's haircut, but I haven't seen I don't know. Maybe look that up?


Nice to see someone else from Toronto! wave.gif
