    Please spam me with your pics of how you've cut your curly haired boys hair please.

    Fin was bald as a coot til 16 months so is only now, at 3, starting to need a proper cut.

    I do NOT want to cut of off or cut it short.... He has BEAUTIFUL tight spiral curls and I love them. I like it really as long as it can be before it gets in his eyes and he really needs length it help tame it a bit as it curls neater. So far I have just got by by snipping each curl a little when wet when it has got in his eyes etc but certainly at the back it is getting a bit longer than it needs be and I'm at a loss as to what sort of style to try or how to shape it.

    I would rather do it myself, I'm not a hairdresser but I do Ian's hair and have done my sisters etc. I know how Fins hair is and wouldn't be confident of any regular hairdresser really having the recent experience to deal with kids hair as curly as his is.

    So yeah, just some pictures of other boys with curly hair who have had it cut and managed a bit would be helpful please... Or advice from anyone used to curls? I want really the mop of curls on top and to the sides to stay as is but just lose the extra length from the back but how I do that without making it look dumb is beyond me. Thanks xx

    I can't find any from the back but should give an idea of what I'm working with.

    Also... Hats? What do you do about winter hats? Hats flatten his curls which means his hair (down to his mouth or further when not tight) gets in his eyes etc and then I have to clip it. But I can't cut it to prevent that as it's just unmanageable without length. Is there a secret I don't know of to keeping them warm but not making their hair impossible?

    Thanks

    Curly hair is so much more forgiving to cut that straight hair. Any unevenness is hidden by the texture of the curls. Do you cut the back of your husbands hair with scissors or do you use clippers? It isn't actually that hard to cut the back of their hair, just hold the hair between your fingers a few inches out from the hair keeping your fingers angled so that it follows the angle of their head. I'm sure there's a YouTube video that will show you exactly how to do this. I'd just cut the back 3ish inches long and leave the top if that is the length you like it.
