If your kiddo has kinky locks, they can also pull off a mohawk. Yet, because of the spiral texture, it may take their hair a little more time to grow long enough for a decent crest. But no worries. There are multiple variations of a mohawk haircut kids with curly hair can get. Even if it is just an inch long, you can already try to shape up a mohawk. Simply trim the hair on the sides short so it creates a contrast with the top. For a bolder look, get an undercut haircut, whereas, for a smoother transition, you may want to complement the mohawk with a taper or a fade.

So, if you are not planning to pay frequent visits to your kid’s barber, then opt for plain line hair designs, which you will be able to maintain yourself. Looking for something more intricate?
