A blunt cut with bangs is a classic style for little girls. Whether the hair is long or short, cutting a straight bang just above the eyebrows will provide a perfect frame for her eyes. Bangs can be used with a causal style when her hair is allowed to fall naturally around her shoulders, or fancied-up as hair is swept up.

The layers should not be longer than 2 inches each. Pixie cuts are good because they work with almost all hair types.

A spike haircut for boys is versatile and popular. Keeping the spikes relatively short works best, because it gives several options for wear. Spikes can be made to stand straight up using hair gel. If he is going somewhere more subdued in tone, the spikes can be made to lay down flat, and the hair can be parted on the side and combed. Spikes can be made to look stiff with enough gel, or relaxed and tousled with a reduced amount of gel.
