i went with my son when he was 12 mo. he watched his dad get his haircut. and when it was his turn, he held him in his lap, while i kinda kept him busy.. honostly, its gonna be rough especially if he is really active. there is no easy way, except if you put a towel down when he takes his nap, and trim it while hes asleep.

I have to go with the clippers too. That way you don't have to worry about getting it even or hurting them or anything. Just get some cheap clippers, put it the right guard on and that's it. I even cut my husbands hair sometimes too. It's the easiest and safest solution.
I've got a son who has lots of hair and this is how to cut toddler boy hair - cut it in the tub while he pours water from cup to cup. Just wet it and comb the long pieces out and trim while he's not looking. If he sees the scissors he might freak out, so hide them. Maybe just comb his hair a few bathtimes to get him used to you messing with it first. Last time I just got the clippers and put on a #6 guard and buzzed him. I let him turn it on and off and talked about it sounding like a motorcycle or airplane...it wasn't the cutest cut or happiest time, but it was even all over!!!

Ive always used clippers on my little boys hair, from when he was about 6 months old, he was fine with it until one day when my partner was doing it caught the clippers in his hair (thanks to some sticky jam) and now he freaks when he even sees the clippers so not sure what to do now! Before 6 months I took him to the hairdressers loads, but I think he will still freak out there too!
