When it comes to kid’s hair, sometimes it’s easy just to cut their hair at home if it’s a simple trim. But sometimes having a professional do the work is necessary and maybe a fun splurge or even a back-to-school look. Without being over the top, here are some cute inspirational cuts for kids that set the tone for a fun, fresh look for the kiddos.

What’s more classic than some curls. This cutie looks ready for her first day back to school with her hair color and beautiful curls on point. It’s not too short but not super long either. This is a great look for any little girl.




A simple bob is always in style. Sometimes a little girl just doesn’t want to fuss with long hair. With a one length pretty bob that’s curled at the end, this little girl is rockin’ it. It’s low maintenance, can be styled in various ways and shows off her youthful, feminine energy.




Adorable, trendy and cute. This little girl has got it going on in a stylish, fun way. The small details like the gold crown trinkets and gold coil around the braid make any little girl look and feel like a princess.




Say yes to the curtain bang. Simple curtain bangs that frame the face add some style and depth to long straight hair. Part the hair down the middle for curtain bangs or style them for a side swept bang with a side part to change it up. The curtain bang is versatile!




This little girl is beyond her years with this asymmetrical bob that is to die for. And with straight one length bangs, her look is sassy and fun. It’s sure to catch a lot of adoring attention…from the parents.

A heavy chunky bang is always super cute on little girls. They can somehow pull it off much better than adults. Why is that? Combine it with some waves and you’ve got a feminine, sweet look. It’s easy to maintain and very versatile.




Is she growing up too fast? This little girl looks like she has an adult haircut. With a cute French bob, highlights and slight wave, she’s letting everyone know she’s the queen of trending hair. Maybe not easy to maintain, but it sure is cute!






Doesn’t he look sweet? This gentleman’s…or should we say gentleboy’s haircut is clean, classic and tidy. It’s short on the sides with a little length on top and combed to the side. This little man is ready for school.

This little guy is just cool. While it’s temporary, a little hair art shows off his creative side. This kid has great hair so having his hair very short on the sides but longer on top makes his look more edgy and stylish. It’s a bit higher maintenance, but it’s fun!

Can we say mullet? It’s not for every little boy, but they sure look cute with one, much cuter than adult males. This kind of cut looks best when the hair is naturally a bit textured. He’s pulls it off well.

How cute is this little boy? That smile is adorable and the precise and clean lines of his haircut are on point. The extra design at the top just set this hairstyle off. A bit high maintenance, but it’s mainly just the outlining that needs regular attention.

Scroll through all the images and you’ll see this haircut is more than it seems. At first it looks like a pompadour, but when you look at the back, it’s a whole other story. This look works well on a boy with a great head of hair. It’s edgy, relatively easy to maintain and stylish.

This little boy looks so happy and he should be! This haircut fits him perfectly. It’s clean and stylish at the same time. He definitely looks school ready with his perfectly razored outlined hairline and simple hair design in the back.



For a more tidy, classy look, try a side hard part. It’s easy for any barber to create with a razor and it gives an extra pop to any boy’s hairstyle. Comb the top of the hair to the opposite direction of the part and use a little product. He’s ready to go!
