Mommy-and-I Hairstyles: Tips for Matching Happily – Madison Braids
Skip to content
Matching mommy-daughter hairstyles are ridiculously adorable, but they’re so much more than that. Kids love to feel grown-up and copy their heroes, and a just-like-her hairstyle can be just the thing to make her glow. Plus, the time you spend doing your daughter’s hair can become a special bonding session. Here are a few things to keep in mind before you start styling:
Choose Your ‘Do Carefully
If you’re going to match your daughter, it’s important to pick a style that looks cute on both grown women and little girls. Pigtails might be adorable on her, but you probably don’t want a pair of your own. Instead, choose something timeless like loose locks held back with a headband braid (you can cheat and buy one ready-made), high ponytails, half-back styles, or high buns. There are also a few “kiddy” styles that are making a comeback with adults: think space buns and double Dutch braids. If that sounds cool to you, go for it!
Keep It Simple
It’s tempting to go all-out and plan elaborate up-dos for two, but please remember that your kid is just that: a kid. When you choose your hairstyles, keep her age and personality in mind. Is she ready and willing to sit still for hours of curling, pinning, and spraying? If it’s not going to be fun for both of you, don’t do it. Pick something simpler and let her smile complete the look.
If you have your heart set on an intricate hairstyle but don’t want to torture your kid to make it happen, Madison Braids headband braids are a smart choice. These pre-braided bands look lovely and take only a few seconds to slip on. Choose from a wide range of styles and shades, all sized to fit girls and women aged three and up.
Head-to-toe matching outfits are cute, but you can pull off an amazing mommy-and-me look without them. Pick one matching item, like a pair of sneakers, or focus on coordinating colors rather than styles. Or wear what you want and complement your matching hairdos with matching scrunchies, clips, or headbands. If you’re worried about looking too childish, aim for coordinating rather than matching. You can tie your kid’s hair up in a big blue bow, for example, and choose a blue bandana for yourself.
Make a Memory
We love those mommy-and-me pics! Dress in matching outfits and snap a photo (or ten). Whether you share it with everyone you know on social media or just make it your phone’s wallpaper, you’ll love looking back at this sweet mommy-daughter moment. How cute would it be if you took matching pictures every year and saved them in a special album? Matching styles also look great in family pictures, whether you’re posing with just your kids or all the cousins.
Whatever you choose, we’d love to see your mommy-and-me look!
