A longer cut with a slightly messy style can work well for many boys. This type of cut tapers around the ears and has a clean, short back with longer thick and textured bangs.
To style this cut, use a comb or fingers to arrange the bangs as desired and let the hair air dry. This cut allows more time between haircuts than shorter styles.
The best haircut for boys who have cowlicks or odd hair growth patterns is a textured cut. This cut is short on the sides and in the back and just a little longer on top and requires little time or product to style.
