The good thing about cutting your child’s hair at home is that you get to save both money and the troubles of dragging him into a salon. But grooming children’s hair is an extra task to add to the never-ending list. Kids generally don’t always have the composure of an adult and may find it hard to stay put throughout the process. And as you probably know, one wrong turn of the clippers can cause a hair disaster. This is something to be worried about especially when recreating one of the stylish and easy boys haircuts on your child. Luckily, I have brought to you this list from WiseBarber that will show you exactly the hair grooming tools you need to cut boys’ hair at home successfully.
1. Clippers Set
Using the right hair-cutting tools for the job is the first step to easing your process and achieving professional-level success. The perfect hair clippers for kids are low-vibration clippers that have sharp blades, a lightweight body, and a lasting battery.
Lightweight clippers are gentle on children, sharp clipper blades are easy to cut with, and lasting batteries give you all the time you need to trim carefully. With that in mind, ensure that the clippers you opt for come with all sizes of clipper guards from number 1 guard to number 8 guard.
2. Combing And Brushing Devices
You’ll always need to comb and brush the hair as you trim it. For a kid’s hair, you should use a combing device with a low profile and medium size tooth. Combs in this category are easy to handle and they brush through the hair without pulling at it. For your child, this translates to comfort and quality hair trimming.
3. Barber Cape
Ensure that your boy wears a cape throughout the process. This will save you the headache of removing hair from every nook and cranny at the end of the day. But when buying one, buy a children-branded cape and make sure it’s in the perfect size for your kid. Ultimately, the cape should cover the child’s body effectively and conveniently. The neck fastener of the cape should also offer a comfy grip. Finally, the cape should be made of quality stain-proof, waterproof material that does not trap heat.
4. Hair Scissors
Children’s fragile hair is susceptible to split ends. This is why you need to always aim for a sharp clean cut when grooming their hair with scissors. And there’s no way to achieve this without sharp scissors. But just as with buying a cape, always opt for kid-branded hair shears.
5. Spray Bottle
Another must-have hair grooming gear for children is a spray bottle. Most hair spray products come in bottles that do not distribute their content in the right proportion. And because children’s scalp and hair are sensitive, applying hairspray in heavy amounts can be damaging. This is why you need special spray bottles to pour hair products in and apply with precision.
We parents are multitaskers for our children. One second, you are a cook, and the next you are a barber. Shapeshifting between tasks is both fun and challenging. But in the end, it’s all about doing things right. In this article, I have shared with you the list of hair grooming tools you need to cut hair for your boy child.
