Classic Caesar Cut for Little Boy
This is the traditional Caesar haircut. It features a short, even length all around the head, with a slightly longer fringe combed forward.
How to: Using a number 3 guard, clip the hair on the sides and back. For the top, use a number 4 guard to maintain a bit longer hair and then comb it forward to create the fringe.
Suitable for: This timeless style is suitable for boys of all ages due to its simplicity and easy maintenance.
Caesar Cut with Faded Sides
This variation adds a modern twist with faded sides while keeping the top similar to the classic Caesar.
How to: You’ll need to use a lower guard number (like a 1 or 2) on the sides, gradually increasing the guard number as you go up to create a fade. The top remains the same as the classic Caesar cut.
Suitable for: This style might be best for slightly older boys (6-12 years), who can carry off the fashionable fade.
Textured Caesar Cut
This style gives the traditional Caesar cut a textured look, making it appear more voluminous and dynamic.
How to: Cut the hair as in a classic Caesar, but use texturizing scissors or point-cutting techniques on top to create a textured look.
Suitable for: This is suitable for boys of all ages, especially those with naturally thick or wavy hair.
Caesar Cut with Side-Swept Fringe
A subtle twist to the classic Caesar, the fringe in this version is swept to one side for a different look.
How to: Follow the steps of the classic Caesar cut but instead of combing the fringe forward, sweep it to one side.
Suitable for: This style might be preferred by boys aged 6 and above who are looking for a bit of stylish flair while keeping the easy maintenance of the Caesar cut.
Caesar Cut with Design
This creative variation incorporates hair design or patterns shaved into the shorter hair on the sides.
How to: After cutting the hair into a standard Caesar cut, use a trimmer to carefully create a design of choice on the sides of the head.
