It’s back-to-school season and moms across the country are scrambling to scoop up glue sticks, tissue boxes and anything else on the List before the bus pulls up for the first day of school. If only there was a supply list of things that could make the morning rush easier, right?
Busy moms, we’ve got your back! Here’s a list of adorable, achievable hairstyles to boost your daughter’s confidence and send her out the door with a smile on those hectic mornings. These quick, cute hairstyles take advantage of pre-braided headband braids to save you time and energy while still delighting your daughter. Check them out:
When you picture a young, fresh-faced schoolgirl, there’s a good chance you imagine her with two tight braids. Elevate this classic look by adding a headband braid to twin pigtail braids. For her headband braid, we recommend sticking with a traditional, simple style to match her double braids. Try the best-selling Lulu Two Strand, or the Halo for girls with thicker hair.
Here’s a back-to-school fact to memorize: space buns are always cute. They’re easy, too: just make a pair of pigtails high on your daughter’s head, then twist them into buns. You can mix it up by adding a headband braid, leaving the back section of her hair loose, or braiding her pigtails before you twist them up.
The quick, convenient bun is great for rushed mornings, but it gets a bad rap for being boring. You can add interest without adding much prep time by throwing a headband braid into the mix. Contrast her bun’s simplicity with a bold braid like the ethereal Butterfly or beribboned Lacey.
Nothing’s easier than a ponytail! You can save time in the mornings and still win over even the pickiest princess by pairing ponytails with braids. Each morning, have her choose a headband braid, then help her slide it on and pull her hair back. Honestly, this style is so simple, only the youngest girls will need your help.
When she wants to let her hair down but doesn’t want it falling in her face, go for a half-up style. Slip on a headband braid and gather hair from her temples into a small bun at the back of her head. If she wants a fuller bun, you can always add the Top Knot Ponytail Holder for extra volume.
Transform a typical bun into a braided masterpiece in seconds! Twist your daughter’s hair into a neat bun and secure it with an elastic. Next, wrap a headband braid around the base of her bun, doubling it over until it fits snugly. For best results, stick with one of our more understated styles, like the Olivia or the Junie Twist.
