The first cut may be the deepest, but it doesn't have to be painful for mother or child. Taking the plunge and giving your lil one their first haircut is a momentous occasion for new parents. Though tradition says to wait until the first year before snipping away the baby curls, 22 percent of lilsugar readers clipped before their child's birthday. While moms may book a salon appointment for the perfect photo opp, a baby's cut can be done at home for those on a budget. And, we promise, no bowl is involved! To check out our tips, read more
For the Beckham boys, grooming is a family affair. Sugardaddy David and his lil cutie, Cruz, rocked awesome matching haircuts today. The father and son showed off their new alternative 'dos while shopping in Hollywood with Brooklyn and Romeo, who sported ball caps. We're not sure if we like the style better on the older, more chiseled Beckham or his adorable, chubby-cheeked mini me. If the twosome really want to look like twins, David should have Cruz teach him some break-dancing moves and the tot should slap on a few temporary tattoos.
My daughter has a fluffy head of super fine hair that still has a bit of baby curl so I can't bring myself to cut it. On the other hand, we've had my son's strands sheared since he was ten-months-old and as a result he looked a lot less like a baby and more like a big boy.
Some mamas cannot bear to trim their lil one's locks — when did you give clipper consent?
You may covet your favorite celeb's hairstyle, but if the 'do doesn't fit your face shape, you're likely to be disappointed. Hence, our four-part series on the haircuts that best flatter your face. Welcome back for our third installment: oval faces. To read last week's advice on round faces, click here.
If you were born with an oblong or oval-shaped face, you share your facial structure with Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, and Jada Pinkett Smith. This extremely versatile face shape allows you to pull off almost any look: short, long, straight or wavy. It's not so much the length you choose that matters; it's more about the feature you want to emphasize. If it's your cheekbones, for instance, try layering chin-length hair so that it falls right at your cheeks and chin, like SJP's at left. This will create the illusion of width, which waves and curls will only emphasize.
If you want to draw attention to your lips and chin, try a choppy bob or a shoulder-skimming straight shag. For other styling ideas, read more
You may covet your favorite celeb's hairstyle, but if the 'do doesn't fit your face shape, you're likely to be disappointed. Hence, FABSUGAR's four-part series on the haircuts that best flatter your face. Welcome back for our second installment: round faces. (To read last week's advice on heart-shaped faces, click here.)
If you have a full, round face, you share your facial structure with Gwyneth Paltrow, Oprah Winfrey, Kate Bosworth, Cameron Diaz, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The shape is characterized by a round chin and lack of sharp angles. Round faces tend to be wider at the cheeks, with softer shaping along the jawline and forehead. Round faces need balance, which can be achieved with hairstyles that make the face appear longer.
The best styles for your face shape are ones that drape below your jawline and add a little volume on top of the head, like Gwyneth's above. For more coifs most likely to complement your face, read more
