Crew cuts are such a classic look for any age, and they’re easy to style, which is great for a little guy who’s constantly on the move. With a crew cut, the sides are short with the hair on top a little longer.
This is a great style for little guys with thicker hair, as you won’t need to use any product to make it look good. It works well for thinner hair, though – just use a natural pomade or wax to get a perfectly styled look. This is a great option for a two-year-old boy hairstyle.

If you want to give your little guy a bit of an adorable edge, go for a faux hawk. It will make your toddler stand out, and will make him feel so cool, plus if he has a cowlick it’s an easy way to hid it.
It’s a lot like an adult mohawk, except that the sides are buzzed short instead of shaved, and the central section is left longer. Use a natural pomade or wax to get the spiky look of a mohawk.
The buzz cut is the easiest of all of the toddler boy haircut styles, and it looks good on a wide variety of face shapes and hair types. The buzz cut is easy to maintain and doesn’t require much styling, but you can use some gel to give it a little texture.
There are many different lengths of buzz cuts, so it just depends on how close of a cut you want. Buzz cuts can be close to the head with a number one clipper, or you can go a little longer with a two or three. This is one of the best boy hairstyles for baby’s first haircut.
