Little girls...they’re adorable with their hair all done up, but pity the woman who accidentally pulls her kid’s hair when she’s trying to style it. Here are some easy, kid-friendly hairstyles your daughter can wear comfortably and confidently—without being forced to sit still while you tug at her hair for hours.
A pre-braided headband braid is your secret weapon! Make a basic bun on top of your daughter’s head and secure it with a ponytail holder. Next, wrap any style headband braid around the base of the bun to create a look that’s as impressive as it is easy.
Pull her hair into a ponytail, then take the look to another level by adding a headband braid. You can switch up this simple go-to style by alternating between high, low, and side ponies, or by swapping out different headband braids. Why not let her pick her favorite braid every day? It’s a fun, low-stakes way to let her make her own fashion choices.
Starting at her temples, take a section of hair from each side of your daughter’s face and braid it, then pull the two braids together to meet behind her head. You can secure the braids with an elastic band and be done, or go all out and add a big bow with trailing ribbons for maximum princess magic.
The Basic Band
For a cute, quick hairstyle on a busy day, just brush out her hair and slip on a headband. Pick a headband to match her outfit or let her express her developing style by choosing one herself. You can also try pre-braided headband braids—they’re a busy mom’s shortcut to gorgeous braided hairstyles. Long after they’ve outgrown cutesy headbands, tons of tweens and teens love ready-made braids that blend into their own hair.
These buns will always be cute! Part your daughter’s hair down the middle and make a pigtail high on each side of her head. Twist each pigtail into a bun and pin flyaways into place. For a slightly fancier version of the same look, try braiding her pigtails before you twist them into buns.
