Make sure you have the right type of scissors

Cutting boys hair with scissors can be a bit tricky, but with the right type of scissors it can be a lot easier. There are two main types of scissors that can be used for cutting boys hair, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Regular scissors are the most common type of scissors that people use for cutting hair. They are easy to find and relatively inexpensive, making them a good option for those on a budget. However, regular scissors can be difficult to use on boys hair, as they often struggle to cut through thicker strands.

Thinning scissors are a great option for cutting boys hair, as they are designed to easily cut through thicker strands. Thinning scissors can be more expensive than regular scissors, but they will save you a lot of time and frustration in the long run.

Cutting the Hair

You will need to know how to cut boys hair with scissors before you can attempt this at home. You will also need to have the proper supplies on hand. You will need sharp scissors, a comb, and some patience. Cutting the hair may take some time, but it will be worth it in the end.

Start with clean, dry, and styled hair

Start with clean, dry, and styled hair. If your son’s hair is already wet or damp, you’ll find it much more difficult to get an even, clean cut. And if it’s not styled, it will be harder to see what you’re doing and where you need to cut. Comb the hair straight back from the forehead. You can use a little bit of gel or pomade to help keep the hair in place if needed.

Decide on the length you want to cut

Before you start cutting, it’s important to decide on the length you want to cut. You may want to use a comb to help measure the length. A good rule of thumb is to comb the hair straight back from the forehead and then cut off the ends at the desired length. For most boys, this will be somewhere between 1 and 2 inches.

Begin cutting the hair

Start with clean, dry, and styled hair. It’s best to cut hair when it’s clean because you can see the natural fall of the hair and where it lies. If the hair is wet, it will lay flatter and you may end up cutting more than you intended. It’s also easier to see the hairline when the hair is styled how it will be worn most often.

Before you start cutting, comb the hair in the direction you want it to lay. This will help ensure that you are cutting evenly. If the hair is particularly long, you may want to start with thinning shears to take out some of the bulk before using scissors.

When you are ready to start cutting, take small sections of hair and hold them taut between your fingers. Using small, snipping motions, cut vertically into the section of hair, following your fingers as a guide. Work slowly and carefully until you have achieved the desired length.

Styling the Hair

Before you start cutting the hair, you will want to make sure that you have the right tools. You will need a good pair of scissors, clippers, and comb. You will also need to have a styling product like gel or pomade. In this section, we will cover how to cut boys hair with scissors.

Style the hair after it has been cut

It is important to style the hair after it has been cut. Boys hair is usually styled in a crew cut, which is a simple and easy style to maintain. The hair is cut short on the sides and back, and the top is usually left a little longer. To style the hair, first comb it into place. Then, use scissors to trim the hair along the temples and neckline. Finally, use a razor to shave any remaining hair away.
