Toddler Braids and Twists

Finding a cute, stylish hairdo for your toddler girl can be challenging, and is by far the most popular on my blog. So I thought I would post some new styles, featuring toddler’s fine, wispy hair pulled back into adorable twists and braids. The trick is to start with wet hair, and have lots of hair gel (not spray gel) on hand. 

If your little girl has a hard time sitting still, like mine, I would gather snacks and put on a movie or favorite tv show to distract her and help her hold still. These styles are nice because they don’t involve any heat, like curling irons or flat irons. 

Styles tend to look cleaner if you take the time to get parts very straight, which is also much easier with wet hair and gel or pomade. Note: If using pomade, a tiny bit goes a very long way!

Braid Hairstyle for Little Girls

Hair Tutorial: Romantic Braid Hairstyle For Girls

This romantic hairstyle is perfect for a whimsical outdoor wedding. This look pulls out all the lovely tones and highlights in this little one’s naturally golden locks. The tonged sections bring out the luminosity in her hair when caught by the light.

Step one
For this look let the hair fall into a natural centre parting. Celebrity stylist Kota explains how centre partings tend to suit girlish styles whereas side partings give an instantly more mature feel. Always start by tonged styles by brushing the hair out with a soft bristle Mason and Pearson brush. Work out stubborn knots at the end of strands by gently working at them with a fine toothed comb.
Step two
To begin tonging, twist and pin the top section of hair using a sectioning comb. Each section should match the width of the tong. Twist before tonging each section to produce a looser and more natural curl, leaving the end free. Work your way through four layers of hair from bottom layer through to the top layer using the sectioning clip.
Step three
Lightly brush out the curls to make them look softer and more natural. Backcomb the crown of the hair, this will give the style volume and allow it to hold for longer. Height gives this hairstyle the ‘extra special’ quality for a more formal wedding occasion. Use the brush to backcomb over these sections.
Step four
Just above the ears start French braiding by pulling sections from the front and the top of the head finishing just beyond the half-way point secure with an elastic band. Repeat this on the other side of the head, keep the braid loose and deconstructed. When the two braids meet fasten with the elastic. Hide the band with a section of hair and fasten with a bobby pin.
Step 5
Pull some sections from the front free to frame the face. Don’t spray hairspray directly onto sensitive little faces when styling at the front, rub hairspray onto fingers and work it in with your hands.
Step 6 – Finishing touches
You can personalize look by gently loosening the braid all around the head. This gives a more natural feel and would look lovely finished with a fine gold clip or piece of lace.

Back to School Style

Sweet Buns

Send your kids off to class in style. Whether it’s a charming braid or a handmade bracelet or jean embellishment, these sartorial projects are inexpensive and a fun way to get back-to-school fabulous.
New school year? Why not try a charming new hair style? Rolling their hair into buns didn’t leave these girls tied up in knots. Simply part hair into two sections. Starting at or just below the ear, twist one section and wrap it around itself into a snail-shell shape. Put an elastic band around bun to keep it in place. Repeat on the other side. Use a bobby pin to secure any stray hairs. The buns can be tight (as seen on the left) or more loose and casual (right).

Crown Braids

Give a young girl a look that’s fit for a princess. Part hair down the middle. Braid each section, starting at the ear. Secure the ends with elastics. Bring the braids to the top of the head and pin close to scalp. Tuck the ends underneath the braids.

Bohemian Braids

No fancy finger work was needed for this side braid. Braid two small sections of hair on the same side of head, stopping about halfway down. Combine the strands by pairing up the pieces of each braid. Braid new pieces together and secure end.

Twist and Tie

For this style, twist a small section of hair at one side of forehead, gradually adding in more strands as you move toward the back of the head. Clip that side and repeat with the other. Fasten both pieces together with an elastic, then tie with a ribbon.

Rope Braid

A spiraled ponytail is a twist on the basic braid. Divide hair into two equal pieces and hold in each hand. Twist hair in your right hand in a clockwise direction; repeat with the hair in your left hand. Wrap the two twisted pieces around each other in the opposite direction. Secure with an elastic band.

Ribbon Braids

Use ribbons to dress tresses in colorful finery. Tie three narrow ribbons to an elastic band. Wrap elastic around a ponytail (or use two for pigtails). Divide hair, along with ribbons, into three equal parts. Braid hair using the basic technique, and secure near the end with another elastic band. The ribbon ends can be tied into bows.
