When your kid has the time of his life, you can’t go wrong with a ponytail.
But sometimes, it’s the best way to express your feelings.
We asked our experts for tips on how to get the most out of your kids pixie haircut.
Here’s what they had to say.
The Cut Should Be Simple and Clean This is where a pony tail comes in handy.
If you have kids with any kind of special needs, you’ll want to make sure they’re fully covered in hair.
“The cut should be simple and clean,” said Tricia Kieltys, a hairstylist and mom of a 5-year-old girl.
“It should be the easiest cut for a kid to make.”
The Pixie Shave Should Be Long and Deep The Pincha Cut is a traditional cut that’s been used for decades in many European countries.
But now it’s getting some love from the youth of today.
“You can do it shorter or longer, and you can do more or less depending on the kid,” said Kiel.
“If you’re short with a kid, you should get a shorter ponytail, which is a little bit more manageable.
If your kid is tall, you’re going to want a longer ponytail.”
The Shave Need to Be Long, Thick, and Strong You want to keep your hair as thick as possible, so if you want to go all-in, a thicker ponytail is definitely in order.
“I’m not saying you should go crazy with length, but you should really go all in,” said Lora Eller, owner of the salon and salon assistant in New York City.
“A thicker pony tail is better for a younger kid.”
The Ponytail Should Be the Best for a Child With Down Syndrome “If your child has a developmental disorder, they’re more prone to hair growth problems,” said Michelle DeHaan, owner and founder of salon DeHaans Hair Studio in Dallas.
“That’s why it’s important to give them a pony-tail that’s thicker and more defined.”
Make Sure to Get the Most Out of the Haircut This is a great time to start a pixie shave.
“There are a lot of pixie cuts out there,” said Kristi Tarrant, who also runs salon Tarrants Hair and Beauty and has worked with her kids for almost 15 years.
“Some kids want a shorter haircut or a longer cut.
You can get a longer haircut if your child is taller, and a shorter one if they’re shorter.”
Keep the Ponytail Clean After the pixie cut, the hair is cut with a sharp knife, which you can clean with a tissue.
You don’t want to cut into the hair, but if you’re working on a longer hair, the scissors are the best option for the job.
Take Care of Your Hair After the ponytail hair is done, you need to give it some attention.
“Make sure you shampoo it,” said Eller.
“But also, wash your hair with shampoo, condition it with a conditioner, and blow dry your hair.”
Make It a Trend Before the hair cut, it can look pretty messy, so make sure it’s not too messy.
“Keep it neat and neat,” said Tarrance.
“Take care of it and you’re done.”
Make the Pixie Scarf a Style That’s Easy to Get Rid of The pixie scarf has become a staple in many families.
“My kids love it,” Eller said.
“And now they get to dress up in their pixie shorts and dresses and hair.”
Take Advantage of the PinchA Cut If you want something a little different, opt for a thicker pixie.
“Kids will love a thicker hair cut,” said DeHaes Hair Studio owner Lora Tarrante.
“They’ll want more volume, so a thicker one is a good fit for them.”
