How to Cut Your Kids Hair to have a Long Sports Cut

You don’t have to wear a helmet, swing a bat or bounce a ball for a living to appreciate this athletic hairstyle. While longer than most styles, it’s still short enough to be manageable and easy to maintain.

What you will need:

  • Wahl clipper
  • Wahl trimmer
  • #3 (3/8") guide comb attachment
  • #4 (1/2") guide comb attachment
  • #8 (1") guide comb attachment

How to Do a Kids Long Sports Haircut Step-by-Step

  • 1

    You will need the #3 (3/8"), #4 (1/2") and #8 (1") attachment guards of your Lithium Ion Clipper. Start with the #3 guard for the lower sections of hair—mainly on the back and sides of the head.

  • 2

    Use the #4 (1/2") guard to cut and blend hair higher on the head.

  • 3

    To cut the top of the head, use the #8 (1") guard, which will leave one inch of length on the top of the head.

  • 4

    Comb the bangs into their natural fall and use the inverted-clipper technique to trim to desired length.

  • 5

    Add styling product to add a personal touch, if desired.
