5 Top Boys’ Hairstyles NOW

As a mother of two boys myself, I know sometimes styling boys hair is simply getting them to brush it!  For the boys who have little concern for hair styling, or ability, it is important to choose a haircut that requires little maintenance.

Here are the top trends in boys’ hairstyles:

1. The Soccer Style

This style is a true expression of individuality and creativity, that’s great for all hair types and textures. The basic premise behind this cut is that it’s long on top and short on the sides, usually with a side part or no part at all. This style is also called The Quiff, which refers to the longer front locks being brushed up and back.


2. The Classic Gentleman Cut (or Classic School Boy Cut)

This never goes out of style and always looks good. It’s a great choice for most hair types and easy to maintain.


3. Curly Tousled Top with Short Sides

This is a great option for curly hair and similar to the Soccer Style, there are no rules for this style. You can go as long or as short as you’d like and it’s great for all curl types.


4. The Long Layered Cut (a.k.a “The Surfer)

This is great for boys who don’t like getting their haircut or for mom’s that aren’t ready to part with their boy’s sweet locks yet. Long layers are a great option—think fresh-from-the-beach California surfer.

5. The Basic Buzz

Short hair is much easier to take care of; making a buzz cut the ideal solution for non-stop, sporty boys or for kids that just don’t have any interest in brushing their hair. Easy to get out of the house in the morning and always look great!
