Hair styling has not been a chief concern for kids for a few months now especially because they have not been attending school in person. Well, with schools starting to reopen the kids are not going to relish going to school looking anything less than awesome. They have, after all, most likely not seen their friends for quite some time. I always color hair at home for my girls but they were looking for something more. So here are a few ideas of easy, quick styles that can be done from home as the new school season starts.
This one does require a little preparation with either the use of a curling iron in the morning or braiding the hair overnight. This will add pleasing waves which will accent an Irish style knot, simply by pulling back the front pieces of hair to tie in a small braid that can be bobby pinned in place.
This one is fast and easy, perfect for younger girls. Separate the hair into two sections as if making pigtails. Fold up each section to make a messy bun and secure it with an elastic band or hair tie. Cover the elastic band or hair tie with a cute bow. Simple and adorable.
Twist Wrap Ponytail
This one looks very cool and complicated but in fact is actually not that hard to accomplish. You start off with a standard high ponytail, securing it with an elastic band or hair tie. Separate out a small section and make a simple rope-twist braid. Wrap the braid around the body of the ponytail and secure it to the end with an elastic band or hair tie. Very simple but looks intricate.
Yes, standard pigtails are cute and of course a classic, but wrapped pigtails give a smoother more grown up look. Start out making the standard pigtails high or low on the head, either style works. Once secured, separate out a small section from each pigtail and wrap them around the base to cover the method of tying. Secure in place with bobby pins and a little hairspray.
High Looped Ponytail
Nothing is quicker than a ponytail and this version really doesn’t take much longer than the standard but it looks oh-so cool. Create a standard high ponytail and secure in place as you normally would. Two inches down the ponytail wrap an elastic band and pull the hair up through to create a puffed effect. Move down two more inches and repeat, continuing as far as you can go. The longer the hair the more sections and the cooler it will look.
Double Braid Ponytail
Throw together two classics for a tidy yet simple back-to-school style. Braid two small sections of hair from the front and secure them before tying them together in a simple knot. Finally, pull the double braid with the remaining loose hair into a ponytail and secure. This one is adorable, fun and easy to pull off.
A true classic and a real time saver, the double bun is both cute and practical. Part the hair straight down the middle and separate into two equal sections. Secure the two sections into standard, top-of-the-head ponytails. Wrap each ponytail around itself and tuck the ends underneath, securing them in place with bobby pins. The addition of cute bows will complete this sweet style.
