5 Easy Hairstyles for Little Girls
I’m crap at doing my daughter’s hair and it often resembles a burst mattress! For the last two years running I’ve forgotten to even brush her hair on school photo day. I wouldn’t have bought the photos but parental guilt kicked in.
During the school year I don’t have time to be faffing around with hairstyles in the morning, getting dressed in time is challenging enough. My repertoire didn’t go beyond putting it in a knotted ponytail.
As it’s the long weekend and as predicted it’s raining so we thought we’d spend a few minutes playing hairdresser trying out quick and easy hairstyles for little girls.
I don’t want her to get hung up on her hair but was looking for quick and easy ways to keep it out of her eyes when she is running around playing.
Please be gentle, as it was my first attempt but with a bit of practice, I reckon they would work but most importantly she loved them.
The pictures on the left are the inspiration and my daughter is on the right.
This one is dead easy. Simply twist the hair and clip into place. Thanks to Girly Do‘s for the inspiration.
Classic Plaited Pigtails
I love the simplicity and innocence of this one. She still looks like a little girl. Simply put hair into two ponytails and then plait. Found at I know hair!
High Ponytail with Hairband
Clip her fringe back. Then using fingers, messily gather hair on top of her head and put in a ponytail. Finish with a colourful hairband. Perfect for keeping her hair out of her face while she is playing and learning. Check out Latest Hairstyles for some fab inspiration.
Bunches of Colour
This one probably made her yelp the most. Simply start with one pigtail on her forehead and then progressively, in section, add more bunches. Using multi-coloured elastics makes more dramatic.
I can’t believe after all the time I spend trying to get the knots out of her hair I voluntarily put some more in??? Unfortunately, I ran out of little elastics, but as you can see if I carried on it would have been very effective. There is a video tutorial at Girly Do’s Hairstyles.
I hope to slowly add more easy hairstyles. Which one do you like best? Do you have any suggestions?

I was always forgetting to brush hair, dress kids in their best for picture day, I definitely should win bad mother of the year award.
Hi Chrissie, I love this post so much. Just like you always make sure that I do different hairstyle on my daughter’s hair before going to school, I’ve done most of the hairstyles that you shared here except for the knotted hair, and I would like to try that on my daughter’s hair. Any suggestion for a nice hairstyle for graduation? I forgot to mention that she has curly, thin hair.
This hairstyles tutorial very cute, I have straight hair and I have been looking for a way to get natural waves. I love this hairstyle! Thanks so much!
