While children’s hairstyles were once as simple and easy as gelling hair and combing it to the side, modern kids' haircut styles have become just as trendy and fashionable as men’s hair. To help moms and little boys get the best hairstyles, we’ve compiled a gallery of cool haircuts for boys, from kids to high school students to try right now.
If you’d like a stylish new haircut for your boy, you should try disconnected undercut hairstyles. The boys’ disconnected undercut style is one of the most versatile and functional hair cut options. Just one undercut can often open up a gamut of options and help them adopt a trendy and stylish haircut suitable for any type of occasion.
The clean-cut appearance and the functional approach of the undercut make it a hugely popular one. It gives youngsters that necessary dose of style without crossing that fine line of discipline and order. The flexibility of the undercut also improves the possibilities of alternatives. That also goes a long way in breaking the monotony.
The disconnected undercut involves keeping long hair on the top and suddenly transiting to shorter hair at a particular point, which makes the portion of the head on the top disconnected with both the sides. It is because of the absence of the smooth transition from long to short hair the name is given. The blending of the hair is perfect in the connected style, whereas in disconnected hairstyles the blend is uneven. The hair on the sides is completely different in length, which is noticeable in the disconnected hair cut styles.
How to Get the Disconnected Undercut
To get the disconnected haircut, you will need to grow your son's hair to a length of about 2 inches. The contrast is actually created with long hair on the top just brushed back without cutting. Atoz Hairstyles recommends shampoo your hair for better control.

One of the most iconic haircuts to have ever graced men’s heads, the quiff has been big (and big news) since the 1950s, earning it a place in the follicular hall of fame alongside other icons of the barber’s chair including the French crop, buzz cut, and short back and sides.
This is another hot favorite amongst little boy’s hairstyles. Naughty, impish, and stylish, this is an option that works with a wide variety of face shapes. The overall style has a classy appeal and gives your boys that much-needed fashion edge. The good part about the quiff is that it will look good on almost any face shape. Quiffs also work with most hair types, except those that are very curly, excessively frizzy, or very fine.
How to Style a Quiff
There's one drawback of the quiff. And that is it takes time to maintain and style this hairstyle. But, it's the final outcome that is worth the efforts. Styling a quiff will require fresh towel-dried hair. You will also need strong hold hair gel or hair wax and a blow dryer. To get the perfect quiff to apply the wax evenly and simultaneously blow-dry and brush back your hair. Comb with your fingers to get the perfect messy look.

The fade is the most popular teen boy haircut around the world because it works with and elevates any guy’s hairstyle. There are many types of fade haircuts to choose from so talk to your barber about the right faded cuts for you. For a classy look that is clean-cut and fashionable, get a low taper fade. For a bold cut, a mid or high skin fade will create plenty of contrast and focus the eyes on your styling above. With short hair on the sides and back and longer hair on top, your style will be modern, versatile, and trendy. From tween boys to young men, fade haircuts will always look good.
How To Maintain A Properly Trimmed Fade Cut
Low fade, high fade, or mid fade, a fade haircut never goes out of style. They look equally good on boys, young guys, and older men. However, fades need a little extra attention to stay sharp and have that clean, fresh finish for a long time. Sharpening the predefined lines by using a razor or with a barber’s help is the best way to maintain a properly trimmed fade cut, but if you haven’t been able to do that lately, have no fear. Using a straight razor often to sharpen the edges, buying the right hair products, and getting a proper haircut every two to three weeks are a few things boys can start doing right away to maintain their fade haircut properly.

If you like the look of long hair but want something that also works well for the school, the bro flow is your ideal option. The haircut, which projects a rugged yet sophisticated appearance, is a seriously stylish choice for gents of all ages. While long flow hairstyles look care-free and are often worn by those with laid-back personalities, flow and comb hair itself is actually rather high-maintenance because it requires boys to grow their hair out to a medium or long hair length.
How To Grow A Flow
The best flow hair is all about using good hair products for long hair. To grow a flow, you’ll need the patience to let your son's hair grow out. For a medium-length look, you’ll need at least 5 to 6 inches of hair. For men who want a long bro flow, wait till your hair reaches shoulder length. In the meantime, you can style any number of trendy hairstyles, ranging from the quiff to the comb-over, man bun, and top knot.
How To Get The Flow Hairstyle
With patience, determination, and the best products for your hair type, all boys can get the flow hairstyle. Here’s what you need to do to get the flow hair.
(1) After a warm shower, towel dry the hair and leave it slightly damp.
(2) Use a high-quality boar bristle brush to comb the hair from the front to the back and sides.
(3) To create the wings, apply a light hold styling clay or cream. Use fingers to work the hair product from root to tip, emphasizing the longer hair on the sides and toward the back of your head.
(4) Continue to run hands and fingers through the hair all day. With the help of styling products, this will train the hair.
|Crew Cut (Photo: Hairstyle Camp)|
The crew cut has always been one of the best haircuts for boys, especially if you want easy-to-maintain short hair. While some crew cuts are the same length all around, the modern crew cut fade delivers more contrast for an edgy style. With faded sides and slightly longer hair on top, the crew cut hairstyle offers a masculine and athletic cut for active teens. Add a line up to create a sharp trim along the hairline. Fresh and stylish, it’s a good haircut for school and the summer months. To change things up, guys can sweep the front to the sides or comb it down to create a short fringe.
Since this haircut is so short, styling is purely optional. Instead, the maintenance comes with getting frequent haircuts to maintain the look because a haircut this short can lose its shape quickly. Birchbox recommends you book appointments with your barber every two to three weeks.
How to Style a Crew Cut
There is one product you’ll want to keep handy with a buzz or crew cut: sunscreen. The shorter the hair, the more your son will need it when he’s headed outdoors, and if you’ve ever seen a burn on your son's scalp, you know it’s definitely worth protecting. Look for a sunscreen that’s specific to hair and scalp, or something in a lighter formulation—we like mattifying moisturizer with SPF—so it doesn’t risk clogging up the hair follicle, and remember to reapply frequently.

If you love a Harry Potter look, messy fringe is your perfect choice. From French crops to long bangs, there is a fringe style that perfectly matches your son. Bangs are on-trend once again for boys and look great when worn messily with plenty of texture. A fringe is a so versatile cut that you will surely find a style that will be flattering for your son's facial features and suitable for your preferences. From tousled and effortless to refined and polished, the range of styling options is endless.
With messy texture being one of the biggest trends for guys’ haircuts, a messy fringe could be a good option. Messy hair makes boys look more laidback and relaxed than blunt or smooth bangs, meaning it's perfect for all situations, from school or uni to a night out.
How to cut fashionable Fringe?
There are quite a lot of different types of bangs out there. To choose the right look, you need to consider such factors as the type of your hair, its texture, and your personal style. If you are considering side swept bangs hairstyles or straight ones, the hair should be between 2 and 4 inches long. Ask your barber to give you an angular fringe in the front and any kind of a fade or undercut on the sides. Curly guys with bangs should do even less to style their locks. In most cases, you just need to allow the front bangs to fall freely. In case you need the hairstyle to look appropriate for a formal ambiance, apply a bit of hair wax or gel and you will get textured bangs.
|Kid pompadour (Photo: Men's Hairstyles Today)|
The kid's pompadour is a modern take on a retro style. The pompadour fade starts with tapered sides that accentuate the styling on top. Primarily a women’s hairstyle until the 1950s, the pompadour’s first great male ambassador was a man who liked his hair as greasy as his diet: Elvis Presley. The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll was one of a new generation of male stars, along with actor James Dean and fellow musician Little Richard who, from the 1950s and 1960s onward, proved that this heightened hairdo wasn’t just for girls, said Fashion Beans.
Guys with straight, finer hair will find it easier to create a finely sculpted classic pompadour, whereas boys with thick and curly or wavy hair will find this natural kink lends itself to more textured variations. For longer faces, slightly more hair should be left at the sides, clipped up to a point just below the crown of the head to soften the dramatic contrast of the hair on the top of the head.
How to style perfect pompadour?
The pomp in the front is styled by lifting the hair up and back. Use a good kid's hair gel or pomade to keep the hair in place with a healthy shine. Trendy and class, the boy's pompadour look best on kids with straight, thick hair.
|Mullet (Photo: Men's Hairstyles Today)|
With the pandemic leaving hairdressers closed for most of the year, 2020 has brought many unexpected hair trends. The mullet is indeed coming back in 2020 and continues to rock in 2021, however, with a modern twist. This time around, it’s all about embracing natural texture, adding fun colors, and rocking more structured yet alternative shapes. More hair is being kept on top than in the 80s, and the length at the back is not as extreme. This gives the modern mullet a more rounded yet still distinctive style.
The mullet is one of the most iconic men’s hairstyles of the ’80s. While this short at the front, long at the back haircut has had its fair share of jokes, it’s making its way back into fashion. Football players, musicians, and fashion tastemakers have all begun to embrace the mullet for its eye-catching shape and laidback vibe. The mullet is business at the front, party at the back! It is a haircut for men who aren’t afraid to stray from the crowd and don’t take themselves too seriously. It’s also a surprisingly flattering look, suiting a wide variety of face shapes.
The modern mullet doesn’t have as abrupt a transition from short front section to long back section. Instead, the style is more graduated and soft. It’s a flattering look if you have naturally thick and wavy hair; your locks will be on show without getting out of control.
How do you give a mullet haircut?
It’s best to head to your preferred barber for a mullet cut, as it can be a bit trickier than other styles to get correct. Your barber will section out your hair and create a short crop on top. The sides from the ear forward are generally kept shorter and can even feature a fade. Then, from behind the ear, the hair is layered, getting progressively longer the further back you move.
