Hi guys.

I've got two little children. Boys. One 3 and one 5 years. I cut their hair. Because they won't sit still for anyone else to do it.

And it is getting to where I like it. I find myself always looking with pride at their heads, at their hair.

I hope that qualifies me as a sort of wanna-be hairdresser and eligible to ask questions on this forum.

And the question is about cutting the hair around the crown of the head. One of the children has a 'crown' ( i think you call it) that is a definite 'swirl', like a whirlpool, on the top of his head.  I've been cutting his hair by placing my hand on his head and catching the hair between my first and second fingers and snipping it off there.

that keeps him calm and avoids the danger of waving scissors around and enables me to cut with more control than snipping with scissors and comb - that often created a ledge, this finger style doesn't, well, not so easily anyway.

And I did that around the 'crown'.  And now the bit of the swirl that points forwards, to the front of his face, is too short and it sticks up.

So I reckon this must be a 'basic hairdressing' standard, how to deal with this.

And it looks to me like you have to allow the hair that points forwards to always be long enough to sit down.

Is that right?

Is there any online course of basics I can look at (preferably free) to gain a little skill and understanding in basic hairdressing?  That's like barbershop stuff, I'm not into styling, you can see that, and don't ever look like being.

I think you should buy a book or a DVD.  Have a look at http://www.hairdressingbooks.com for some of the latest books for hairdressers
