Hairstyles for Kids: Part 2 – Preschoolers
I’ll admit it, when my kids started getting older I was ecstatic to try out all these cute hairstyles, but I quickly found out it was not easy! When it comes to preschoolers, you get to have a little more fun with the hairstyles. Most preschoolers aren’t as frustrated and upset about having their hair done but don’t expect them to keep it looking great all day. Preschoolers are notorious for running and playing constantly., which means a lovely half-braided rat’s nest by the end of the evening. Here are some no-fail, fun hairstyles for your preschoolers.
One simple go-to hairstyle I use all the time is the waterfall braid. To get started, brush out your preschooler's hair so its soft and doesn’t have any tangles. Part the hair down the middle and then start on either side of the head with two sections of hair. Now you will cross one section of hair over another, moving it away from the face. Next, take a new section of hair and have it “fall” over the piece you just pulled from the face. That piece is essentially done as it’s not falling through your first twist. You want to take the bottom section of hair and take it over the waterfall hair. Next, grab another section of hair and repeat the over/under process until you are half-way around the head. You should be around the end of the hair you started with, just make an easy three section braid to tie off this section. Pin up this hair with a couple bobby pins and have it cross under the hair on the other side of the head. You want to take the hair on the left side and repeat this same process. Drop those layers and look at how adorable the hair turned out!
Want to know one of my favorite hairstyles for my daughter? I love hot curlers and Velcro curlers, they make it incredibly easy to add some curl to her hair. You can do the Velcro curlers or foam curlers at night after a bath, they are soft and easy to sleep on. Hot curlers work great on second-day hair. Use a little mouse to give the curlers something to help hold the curl and place the hot curlers in the hair for about ten minutes or so, it depends on the body of her hair. Take them out, tug a little to give it a cute, stylish curl and she’s ready to hit the town! Don’t forget to accessorize with some of our favorite bracelets and necklaces.
