Hairstyles for black boys

| July 19, 2010 | 0 Comments

There are some very cute hairstyles for black boys that are very easy to complete. When choosing hairstyles for children it is important to include them in the decision. You want them to feel comfortable with whatever hairstyle is chosen, because they are the ones who have to sport the hairstyle. This article will feature a handful of the many hairstyles for young boys.

The fade is one of the most popular styles for any young child, especially African American children. African hair can be hard to manage if left to grow too long. That is one of the reasons that this style is so popular. It eliminates the need for maintenance, which is extremely appealing to children because they do not want to fuss with their hair every morning.

The fade is a hairstyle that is shaved close to the head. The hairstyle is short all over, but gets even shorter closer to the nape of the neck. Creating a fade hairstyle is simple and the only tools required are a set of clippers and different size guards. You would first start with the largest of the guards and shave the entire head. Then drop down an inch or so and shave with the second largest guard. Continue this step along the entire head, getting closer to the head each layer.

If you do not want to shave your kids head, but would like them to display their hair instead, the afro would be a good style for you. This hairstyle displays the natural beauty of African American hair. It is a simple style as well and only requires a comb to complete. First, backcomb all of the hair and then shape the afro to the desired shape. The afro is usually worn in a circular rounded shape.

Therefore, we have looked at super short styles, and styles that require hair to be a bit longer. What about long hair? Dreadlocks are becoming a popular kid’s hairstyle. They do not have to be a foot or two long; they can be as short as a couple of inches long.

There are several methods to creating dread locks and they are extremely easy to maintain. This hairstyle is ideal for children who do not want to spend a large amount of time worrying about their hair.

Braids are a great hairstyle for children who do not want to spend hours on their hair as well. However, a child would have to be patient to sit through the initial styling. Cornrows are extremely popular in the African American culture, and many celebrities can be seen promoting this style. Kids enjoy it because of its easy maintenance and the fact that they can relate to many different celebrities.
