A fauxhawk haircut is similar to a mohawk, but with the sides are clipped short. The hair is longer at the top where it is usually spiked to form into a point. It does require a bit of maintenance with regular visits to the salon so as to maintain the look, and daily styling is necessary for the hairstyle to look it's ultimate best. However, it does grow out pretty alright so you don't have to worry about an awkward growth stage and can simply opt for the fauxhawk haircut as a one-time look for CNY.

A throwback to Justin Bieber in his younger days, the full long fringe cut is still a popular hairstyle even today. Always a classic, front fringe makes daily styling a breeze. As it does not require any special styling products, this haircut is one of the most popular little boy haircuts. In addition, it works great with straight or fine hair. Simply comb and go!

Getting a fringe is an instant hairstyle enhancement. You may, however, have to style it a little to keep it looking good. It's also one of the more popular hairstyles so you are likely to sport your other young male nephews or young male adults sporting this look. That said, it's a versatile look ad suits almost all face shapes.

6. Spiky Bowl Cut

The bowl cut may be a little outdated but you can give it a cute upgrade by adding layers. Daily styling is not necessary so it's not a high maintenance look. That said, not everyone can pull off this hairstyle. It's more suited for those with a sharp chin or V-shaped faces. Nevertheless, it's still a super cute look on a kid!

7.  Good Boy Cut

Not keen on a particularly stylish cut? Go for the basic good boy cut. Needless to say, this hairstyle has been around for a long time and is typically worn by school kids. If your son is already sporting this look, add an air of coolness to it on CNY by simply using wax to style the look, giving it a trendy edge.

8. Top Knot

Bet you thought a shaved undercut was only for the faint-hearted? Well, you’re wrong! David Beckham once rocked a similar look! The hair on top has to be long enough to pull back into a ponytail look or just short enough to flip back. No matter your choice, this is a hassle-free hairstyle as minimal maintenance is required, except frequent salon visits to keep the sides shaved (alternatively, you can do it yourself!).

9. Textured Hair with Taper Fade

Don't mind putting in a little extra effort? With this fresh haircut, extra work is required to keep the hairstyle looking this smart. If you are not a fan of hair products, then this look will not suit your little boy as you can notice that quite a fair bit of product is used to achieve the style. Hence, probably not a viable choice for a long-term hairstyle but no harm trying it out just for CNY.

10. Flat Top Hairstyle

The hipster cut, a flat top hairstyle is a short haircut where the hair on the top of the head is cut into a box shape and stands upright, often with faded sides and back. There are several variations to this hairstyle but do keep in mind, they all require a fair bit of upkeep. Nevertheless, your boy will look dashingly handsome with a flat top hairstyle!

For the Girls

1. Neat Bob

Your sweet little girl will look even sweeter with luscious curls! And yes, you can consider giving them a perm if they can last through sitting on the chair for 3-4 hours. 

Curls instantly glam up a look but if you are worried about heat damage, you can always braid your child's hair and let her sleep in it overnight. 

Alternatively, you can curl her hair to give her that glam for a day!

3. Barbie Doll Hairstyle

Cute Barbie Doll Hairstyle Kids

How ridiculously cute is this look? There's really not much styling needed as the hair is worn straight, and the straight bangs add even more cuteness and demure to the whole look, which leaves your little one looking doll-like. When the heat gets in the way, simply tie two ponytails and each side, another adorable alternative to pulling off this haircut.

4. Double Bun

Double buns are another cute style that brings out the fun and innocence. It's relatively simple to do and a great way to keep hair off the face when your kid will be busy running around. You might need a donut bun shaper to create two perfect round buns. However, this is not necessary if you don't mind the buns looking a little less round.

5. Topknot

Go for a top knot instead of a double bun for a more demure look. A half bun also changes things up while allowing some hair to frame your face. It's a great way to keep your hair out of your face (and neck) while having some of it down.

6. Double Pigtails

Another hairstyle that is common during CNY is the double pigtails. If you are worried that the double buns might come loose and fall out when your kids are running about, do a simple double braid instead. Quick and easy, yet still pretty and cute looking!

7. Kitty Ears 

Don't mind spending an extra few minutes on your kid's hair? Try out this kitty ears hairstyle! You are going to need a few bobby pins and hair ties to recreate this look. Do try out this hairstyle if you are up for the DIY and extra effort because it's simply too cute to give it a miss!
