Hey I would go with the traditional look first cause u can always put alittel baby oil and shape the hair in to a mohawk to see how cute he would look...LOL

He's 12 then let him express himself in a simple haircut and not by some other means of rebelian. There are to be more small battles and disagreements in the next few teenage years. And like another poster said the hair is always easy to cut off to a more traditional hair cut.

ask him what kind of haircut he wants.....a mohawk can always be cut off if it doesnt work out but you cant put one on after a regular cut. lol. self expression is a good thing save the battle for the older years, letting them do these simple expressions now could avoid scary ones later on. just a thought.

I just got my son's hair cut for the first time last week - he's 20 months. We went to a kids salon...he got to sit in a jeep while his hair was cut...and they gave us a certificate and an envelope with some of his hair in it (for in his baby book). I just had the stylist trim up the hair he had (it was growing longer on one side and his bangs were uneven) which left him with a more traditional look. I want him to still look like a little boy, he can have the mohawk/fauxhawk when he's a little older.

i would definitely go with a cut that you can style in a mohawk but also looks normal when its not done up. thats what we did with my son. he loves his "tohawks". lol. and so does his dad. but i have known younger kids who got mohawks and were self conscious about them...

Hello Jami! I am a hair stylest for children! First I would go to a child friendly salon! And as for the hair cut it depends on how much hair that he has! If he has baby fine hair I would trim untill all his hair comes in and then cut it into a "style"! If he has a lot of hair I would cut it into a lil boys haircut (thats what they call it) becuase you can style it any way you perfer! Good Luck! And tell boyfriend that mohawk is for when they are older!!!! He is still your lil boy!!

Aww Michelle, he sounds adorable. People have said mine looks like a girl too. lol

I would wait till hes older for the hawk, you could get them to cut it so u can spike it up to look like a hawk, thats what my boys like to do so they can wear it normal to school.But if u have the time to train it and do it every day I'd say go 4 it, my neighbors 6 yr old has a mo hawk and it looks fine.

We just got a new haircut the other day!!! I went with short in the back and around the ears but I can spike up or mohawk the top. I like to just gel the bangs up a bit, he looks so cute but he likes mohawks (he calls them moohawks) so I made sure I could still do that too. It's short enough that if I don't do anything to it at all (no gel or mouse) it still looks nice and clean cut.

I had big time issues with cutting it because he has the nicest hair when it's long. He's got just the perfect amount of curls that his hair didn't look messy. My husband took him to the store though and someone told him he had a cute little girl... poor guy, he was mortified so he took him to cut it all off!!! I'm still sad but I'll get over it, he's still so cute!!

Good luck!

Mohawks are the thing for boys now! At some point, they all want one....heck...my daughter wanted on last year....just like the guitar player on guitar hero. We got her a shorter hair cut, where we could spike her hair up...but still look like a girl, when she didn't have it spiked!

I gave both of my boys mohawks over the summer and everyone loved them! It was cute to hear other little boys say they wanted their hair cut like my boys! :)

Don't let your boyfriend take him, LOL. Just take him yourself for his haircut!! And show boyfriend the finished product. He'll get over it.

For one how old is your son? and two well I think your son has plenty of time to go crazy with his hair when he is old enough to actually decide what kind of fad he wants to try out.

I think with you being his mother you can decide what would best suit your child,you don't want to have him centered out with already starting with the wild do's.JMO
