Choosing a short hairstyle for your child can be an enjoyable task, but it also requires careful consideration based on factors such as hair texture, face shape, and personal style. Let Linda Miller, a seasoned hairstylist, guide you through the process of selecting and maintaining a short haircut for your little one.

Understanding Hair Texture

“Children’s hair can vary greatly in texture,” says Linda. “From fine and straight to thick and curly, it’s essential to consider your child’s natural hair type when choosing a short haircut.” For fine hair, a layered pixie cut can add volume and movement. On the other hand, thick hair may benefit from a classic bob with blunt lines to control the volume.

Considering Face Shape

“To complement your child’s unique facial features, take their face shape into account,” advises Linda. For example, a long bob with side-swept bangs can flatter a round face by creating the illusion of length. For those with an oval or heart-shaped face, a textured pixie cut can accentuate their features.
