These Easy Kids’ Hairstyles Are So In Right Now
With some kids, it’s a struggle just to get them to sit still while you comb the knots out of their hair. With others, they want a new braid or barrette every other day. Which is why a parent needs options. From the simple to the slightly more advanced, here are 15 styles to keep in your back pocket.
Whereas a center part highlights any bumps or flyaways, a side part is more forgiving.
A Smooth Topknot
A sleek topknot works on all hair textures (and takes all of three minutes to do).
The Messy Topknot
Aka mommy’s go-to look on most days. (Hey, the fruit didn’t fall far from the tree.)
The Pop Star Swoop
We call this the Bieber (back when he was just a baby-faced kid with a squeaky voice).
The GQ Spikes
Perfect for when you haven’t had time to take your kid for a cut. (Why does hair grow so fast anyway?)
The Crown Braid
The best thing about this guy is that it keeps everything out of your child’s face. (Here's a cute tutorial if you, like us, need a refresher on braiding.)
The High Pony
The higher the better, y’all.
The Dapper Comb Over
For your perfect little gentleman.
The Pixie and the Plait
To each their own.
The Flower Crown
Let the headpiece do the talking (and the mom do the resting).
The Head Wrap
Another case for a statement hair accessory.
The Faux Hawk
A quick (and foolproof) fix for bedhead.
The Polished Side Part
For the old soul in your fam.
The Double Buns
The '90s are making a comeback after all.
The Bubble Braid
It looks more complicated than it actually is, but a bubble braid is basically a bunch of interlaced ponytails punctuated with colorful hair ties.
