Do-It-Yourself Boy’s Haircut: Mohawk

I’ve been meaning to do this post since last month but I never got around to doing it. So I guess if you see Jack Jack now, he might not look as close. But I’m planning to do the same cut for him before Christmas.

For the skin head cut, it was fairly easy. I can do it with my eyes closed. But with the Mohawk style, I needed to make it straight. And if you do try to create a Mohawk style on any head, you are going to break your own head to make it straight because it’s no joke. So without further ado, I’ll show you how I did it.

As what I did with the Skinhead style, almost the same materials were used:

  • Hair clipper
  • Hair brush
  • Big shirt
  • Clip
  • Masking tape (my secret weapon!)

Here are the steps:

  1. Have the kid sit in his high chair or any chair where he will stay for the next hour.
    Place the chair in front of TV with the favorite program or place favorite toy in front of him. This will make him busy, I hope.
  2. Use a big shirt and clip to wrap around kid’s neck and body. Not too tight though!
  3. Use the masking tape on kid’s head to protect the hair that you don’t want to cut. Make sure that this is straight for the Mohawk style.
  4. Clip away!
  5. Brush any stray hairs so you can be sure that only the hair in the middle is left.
  6. Clip more hairs that you don’t want.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 as needed for best results.
  8. Remove masking tape. Do not skip the last step!
  9. Give lots of kisses and hugs to reward kid of his good behavior during the process.


Side view.

So what’s with the hair? I find it pretty cute and in the hopes that since he did have that haircut now that he’s a little kid, he won’t be using the same style 15 years from now. Or so I hope. What do you think?

    He’s so cute… He looks like small version of Puck in the TV series Glee.

      Thanks! I don’t watch Glee so I don’t know Puck. Guess I’ll look him up now – out of curiosity! :D

    How cute! :D You just made a huge task of cutting a little boy’s hair (a huge task, from what I’ve seen on my cousins’ kids) that much easy and fun. And the little guy actually looks real cool in his new ‘do to boot. Kudos! :D

    When I read the title, I thought it would look inappropriate(sorry for lack of a better term)on young boys but looking at your results it looks sleek, neat and bagay to your kid. :)

      Thanks Madz & Nathalie!

    Mohawk! Reminds me of Puck (from Glee)! Cute! ;)

      Thanks! You’re actually the second person who said that. XD

    That is really a cool idea. Now, you don’t have to spend lots of shampoo nor money to pair for the hairdresser.

      That’s what’s really nice about having a boy. You can do the easy haircuts. And the shampoo – I never thought that I’m saving on that as well! Thanks!
