If you are like many moms, you want your tot’s tresses to look polished and put together, but your rambunctious ragamuffin fights you when you try to put the finishing touches on her styled hair. When planning a style for your little diva, pick something that is quick and easy. You want to ensure that you don’t get tired of detangling and that her exuberance doesn’t leave her trying to escape the styling seat before the hairdo is done.
Get your daughter’s locks up and out of the way to allow her freedom to play. After brushing your daughter’s hair, gather her locks in the back or at the top of her head. Secure the bundle of hair with a ponytail holder. Not only is this style utilitarian, but it is also simple and ensures that your daughter always looks put-together, even after hours on the playground.
Make your tiny tot look adorable with pigtails. Divide your daughter’s hair down the center using a comb to create a crisp part. Pull the hair on each side of her head into a bundle, and secure it with a hair tie. Give the hairdo a quick once over to ensure that her pigtails are even, then send your little princess off to play.
Create a polished look with little effort, using simple sponge rollers. After your daughter’s bath, section her hair using a comb and wrap each section around a sponge roller. Don’t stress too much about creating even sections, as you will not be able to distinguish the sections once the rollers are out. Send your tot to bed, and let her sleep on her curlers. If her locks are still damp in the morning, finish the drying process with a warm blow dryer. Take out the curlers and you will find tight, bouncy curls covering your cutie’s head.
Short and Sassy Bob
If your daughter pouts at the prospect of getting her hair brushed, make your job easier by cutting her coif. Get her locks trimmed into a short bob. This style looks great on any girl; it requires only a brushing to maintain. Skip the moans and groans of tending to your kiddo’s hair with this simple style.
Give your little boy’s hair some style by creating a rock-ready set of spikes. Take hair paste and rub it into your little man’s hair. Pull chunks of hair away from the scalp, using the paste to secure them and cause them to stick out in a spiky array around his head. Your little guy will likely adore this punk-rock look.
Make hair styling–and cutting–a breeze with a buzz cut. Take your son to the area barber shop and ask your barber to buzz his locks. This short, simple look requires no preparation and leaves your little man free to run and play with his new, maintenance-free, look.
