Young boys do not have too many options for changing their hair for formal occasions. If your boy usually wears his hair in a spiky style, you can go for a smoother, more polished effect by wearing them down.

The slight sweeping hairstyle with parting on one side and uniform length hair is also known as the classic school boy hairstyle. The hair is combed on one side in this looks great on special and formaloccasions.

Another variation of this hairstyle can be achieved if the boy has a hairstyle in which hair is cropped close with just a pinch of more length on top than on the sides. The hair on the top is combed diagonally across his head forming the dynamic fringe and giving him a subtle stylish appearance.
