Hairstyles for boys are numerous and varied. Each style has its own characteristics and there are many factors that can influence a decision on what hairstyle is right for each person. Cost, maintenance, convenience, and fashion are all things that can influence a decision. Also important is each individual's hair type and face shape.

I will discuss in detail the various factors that can affect a hairstyle decision. I will also look closely at some of the most popular boys hairstyles that are still being used today. Hopefully this can help parents and boys alike in finding the best cut.

Things to Consider

Face shape - For each face shape there are styles that work best. For example, those with high foreheads might try a messy, spiky style to minimize their exaggerated features.

Fashion- Choice of cut can depend on the fashion of the day. For different generations, hair length can be associated with different lifestyles.

Hair type - This factor enters into a decision on cut because different types of hair work best with different cuts. For example, someone with thick unruly hair might want to wear it short.

Convenience - Many cuts can be done by a parent, while others require more skilled hands. Also, depending on the cut, there is a great different in the amount of time one should expect to spend on daily styling.

Maintenance - Maintaining short hair is fairly effortless, and long hair can be easily tied back. Medium lengths need to be styled daily and cut often, in addition to other cares, such as shampooing and conditioning.

Cost - Long hair requires little cutting and minimal styling product purchases. Short cuts can be done at home, saving money. Medium cuts are the most costly because of the constant maintenance required to achieve the desired look.

Different Hairstyles For Boys

Bowl cut - Done by placing a bowl on the head and cutting the hair that shows beneath, this cut allows more length on the top of the head.

Classic cut - This easy to maintain cut is short on the sides and layered on the top. Also, this cut is short in the back and around the ears. A great clean look.

Novelties - Other options include colored dyes and the cutting of shapes into the hair.

Buzz cut - Simple and easy, this military style can be done at home with a set of clippers and requires no styling at all.

Caesar cut - Cutting the hair to a length of one to two inches and brushing it forward creates this look. This style can be done with clippers and provides short bangs.
