It might be time for your son’s first haircut or it could be one of many for your baby boy. Toddler boy haircuts are cute yet practical cuts that will look as good fully styled as well as disheveled. As we all know, toddlers are particularly reluctant to have their hair brushed or even baths at this age so it might only look like it should some of the time and that’s totally fine! These hairstyles are bed-head approved.
Today, toddler boy haircuts have been trending toward the shorter styles (which is also easy on you as that’s less maintenance). However, longer styles and special cuts that fit your toddler’s personal style are distinct possibilities as well. Take a look at some of the best cuts to find the right one for you boy!
Check Out the Best Toddler Boy Haircut Ideas Below!
A Short, Cropped Fringe
A nice, blunt, little bang looks very cute and slightly butch for a young boy which is just so fun for the little ones. At this age, boys’ hair naturally wants to fall forward so it wants to naturally fall into place. It also looks great messed up!
Short, Cropped Curls with a Fade
Here’s a great cut for curls that you can request with or without the fade on the sides. Curls are agony and ecstasy but cropping them short makes them much more manageable.
A Little More Curl
For looser curls, you can keep some texture on top and go short on the sides. This sort of toddler boy haircut practically styles itself but you can fuss and fluff up the curls should the need arise.
Pushed Back with Gentle Taper
We find a gentle taper down the sides in the back with a longer top. The whole thing gets the pushed back and up treatment which only requires you to do the movement with the hair wet and it should dry in pretty much in place. If your boys’ hair wants to fall forward use a small amount of pomade.
A Fade and a Hard Part
Again, you can do this classic toddler boy haircut look with or without the fade on the sides but what you want is shorter sides and then part the hair to one side. It’s an easy look that looks equally good messed up.
On Longer Locks
We advise shorter cuts for their ease but longer styles are totally doable. A middle part is the easiest and you can just let things fall into place.
A short crop with tons of texture is an excellent option as it is essentially meant to look a bit chaotic after the cut’s done. You can just let it go or add some product for more texture and more spiking.
The Super Short Crop
If your son is not having any of it, a super short crop like this one is going to be the best toddler boy haircut for your needs. Once the cut’s been completed, that’s all. This hair is good to go right after a wash with no extra attention.
A Little Bit of Bang
For smooth and straight hair textures, you can get away with a little bang in your toddler boy haircut. A medium length with a side part is great. If you’re worried about bangs in the eyes, asked the stylist to go a bit shorter in the front.
If your kid has magnificent curls and they will let you wash and condition them on the semi-regular, you can get the hair cut a little more than an inch in length and just let it go wild. It might look like a mess to you somedays but all the other parents will be secretly jealous of those wild curls.

On Thin Hair
Not all toddler boys have a thick head of hair. It takes time for some! But, there’s plenty you can do with a thin head of hair. A nice little short crop on the sides with a slightly longer one on top can be pushed to the side for a cleaner look.
Sort of Undercut
For natural curls, you can get more shape with a short crop around the ears so the curls form a pseudo-mohawk. Honestly, if your kid has hair like the child above, it’s going to look great no matter what toddler boy haircut you choose.
Buzzed and Accented
If you’re after the easiest toddler boy haircut, get it buzzed down and ask for a little shape to be shaved in like this. We imagine most little boys would like that little element.
Some Textured and Wispy Bits
Most young boys’ hair will want to fall forward. Let it happen naturally with a slightly longer cut that frames the face and adds some texture. It’s a more maintenance-free toddler boy haircut than you think.
Like it or not, the mullet is back. It’s a surprisingly easy toddler boy haircut that is fairly maintenance-free. What makes mullets so appealing is that they grow out easily and are meant to look messy and feathery.
As you can see on these little boys, little faux-hawks are really cute. They are easy to style when your boy will let you but also look just fine laying flat and falling forward.
Medium Length Side-Part
If your kid does not like the buzz of clippers, you can request a longer cut that requires very little if any use of them. A side part with a bit of a bang is one way to go with your toddler boy haircut.
Medium Sides and Long on Top
if your toddler has a lot of hair, you can choose to go slightly shorter on the sides with some length on the top for a little bang action. This textured style will look great after being washed with no need for styling.
Little Curls Falling Forward
For curls in fine hair, let them do their thing on top with a medium crop on the sides for an effortless toddler boy haircut.

For toddlers with not a lot to work with, you can request a short clipper cut that will result in little spikes on the top (and potentially all around). It’s a fun toddler boy haircut that is the epitome of the word ease.

We tried to bring you practical styles that grow out well and that don’t take match effort on your part. Now, go make your little fella look dapper as can be.
