Having a good hairstyle gives kids confidence, and there are several great choices available for today's modern youngster. Here is a collection of kid-friendly cuts that look fantastic without being too hard to manage.

Cute Bobs for Girls

One of the most flattering styles on young girls is the bob. It's short, cute and works for active lifestyles. This look works best on girls with straight or wavy hair. Parents should use caution when having curly hair cut short. If your daughter's hair is very curly she may end up looking like a poodle if you're not careful.

Long Styles for Girls

Long hair can look adorable on young girls if taken care properly. If your child has straight hair, this isn't usually a problem, but make sure that it's evenly cut, or even layered with fringe. If she has curly hair, make sure that you know how to take care of it.

A mistake that parents often make is sending their daughters out with long, curly hair that looks terrible. Keep it conditioned, don't comb it when dry, and find the right combination of products to keep frizzies in check. If your child's curly locks look good, they'll feel better about showing them off. Avoid fringe with curly hair unless you have time to help your daughter straighten them each morning.

Long styles on girls give them more options for their daily look. You can leave their hair down, throw it into pigtails, or style it into a classy updo for a formal occasion.

Shaggy Cut for Boys

With the rising popularity of teen heartthrobs the Jonas Brothers, this cut is getting more and more popular. It looks fantastic on little skater boys and rising sports stars without looking too messy. Just make sure to keep it clean and don't let it get too out of control, otherwise your son's stylish hairdo will start resembling a retro hair don't.

Buzz Cut for Boys

This classic works on a lot of boys, especially if they love playing and getting dirty. It's the simplest hairstyle to maintain and the easiest to cut at home. Please note that the buzz cut is a simple solution that works for many boys, but it doesn't always fit everyone. If your child looks great with a longer head of hair, leave it that way.

Short and Curly Boy Cut

Most parents struggle when trying to deal with curly hair for boys. It can be difficult to manage, but with the proper cut your child's messy curls can be transformed into a handsome and youthful style. A popular cut is leaving the hair a bit longer in the front so it can delicately fall on your boy's forehead, framing his face.
