When it was first growing out long it looked like a little surfer dude's hair style, kind of wispy and layered along his face. I tried once to trim it that way my self, but it looked eh.
Any tips on how to cut it myself or do you think if I take him to a cheap place like The Hair Cuttery..that they'll know what I mean? i am so afraid someone will just chop it all off into the typical "little boy" haircut.

Here is a pic of some surfer cuts if thats what you were thinking.
I think it's $16 for a child cut. They do a good job with the shaggy cuts. Perhaps a barbershop is an option?

i have been considering taking him to one of those hip places, we have Pigtails and Crewcuts around here. Problem is funds are tight and I don't know if i can justify it!!
i am really uptight about my own hair too. it's long, wavy and thick and i don't trust just anyone...i guess it's transferred to my kids now.
both DH and i have long thick hair, and DS at 2 years still hasn't even come close to NEEDING his hair cut. the longest it has grown is 2 inches. funny.
good luck with your hair (i'd stick to doing it my self - cheapest - and it always grows out so you can try again!)
My son was getting similar comments about his surfer-like hair when it started getting "too long" (referring to him as her or she). We were in luck when we spent 2 weeks on Long Beach Island in Surf City, New Jersey and went to the SURF BARBER for the best surf style haircut (approved by all the local surf shops)! The funny thing is that they were all these old dudes and it was a regular old barber shop except for the big surfboard hanging up and all of the surf posters. I highly recommend visiting your local shore or like someone else recommended a "hipster" type barber and definitely bring GOOD surf pictures.. pick up a surf magazine for more options.
