Those of you with boys who have poker straight hair what do you ask the barber for to stop the straight across bowl haircut look?
I also have a DS with this issue - haven't solved it yet. We don't have the bowl cut look because DSs hair is this and poker straight so looks a bit more like Joey from friends, whatever he does. (DH still works this look much to the DCs horror) According to the hairdresser whatever they do still requires some work from the child / me in terms of wax / other product, and to be fair she can make it look good, we can just never reproduce it.
I like the Joey from friends look and have suggested it to my son's hairdresser, otherwise I just ask for very short at the sides but with a little more fullness at the top. Or take a picture you like?
My son had such straight hair that you could see every single cut in it. He had long and shaggy for a while, done by hairdresser. If you want short and spiky he goes to a barber. Now he is 17 he goes to a male hairdresser who was given a haircut like Kim jong ill and he seems to be very pleased with that
I take DS to a decentish barber and instruct them to take the bare minimum off. Tbh, it's got a kink to it but he's cursed with my fine but lots of it hair. I have enough trouble stopping it from just hanging around my face after spending a bloody fortune! When he goes to school next year it'll have to be short I think to prevent the dreaded nits, poor kid!
