I have six year old twin boys. One wants a shorter cut and the other wants longer hair. They have had some horrendous haircuts. The most notable:

1. The Family Cut: Grandma and I trying to cut hair while the two year olds watch Elmo and eat pizza. (This was NOT a good idea.)

2. The Old School Classic: Wandered by an straight up barber shop in Manhattan—very cheap—but they used gel and a hairdryer on my four year olds.

3. The Park Slope Special: Have fallen into these several times. Easy, but your kid walks out with the same hair cut as every other 3, 4, 5 year old boy in the neighborhood.

Which brings me to Bruce Weber. Years as a photo editor have led me to resort to Bruce once again for inspiration.. Bruce’s website is incredible to look at for the photography alone. Little does he know that he has inspired the haircuts for twin boys in Brooklyn. I now bring reference images to their haircuts and it has made all the difference.

For Max, the classic Abercrombie & Fitch cut…

Emmett prefers the shaggier surfer look…

    Oh the strange world of boy hair cuts. I have an 11 year old boy with curly hair and an 8 year old boy with crazy hair. No other way to put it. He often looks like he is in an Andy Warhol wig. Growing up with all sisters I have no idea how to tell the hair stylest what to do. The stylest kept asking me what number do i want?!?! it took me years to figure out they wanted to know a clipper number. Often I bring pictures from Crewcuts or Mini Boden as their boys have cool hair. I will need to check out this. Thanks for the heads up.

    Same problem here. Lately, we have been bringing in a picture of David Beckham’s son Romeo.
