When choosing a hairstyle for your toddler, there are a few things to keep in mind. The style should be comfortable, safe, appropriate for your child's hair type, and easy to do.
If your little girl has longer hair, try considering a few different styles that will secure her hair and keep it out of harm's way. A ponytail is a classic choice, and keeps all of her locks at bay. If you are worried about flyaway hairs, try french braiding her hair so that it will hold more tightly all along her head. For even more security, two french braids are a great option. Try brushing your child's hair back when it is still wet, then parting it along her natural part; this will make things easier for the braiding process.
Other accessories may be helpful in managing her hair. Headbands are a great choice and offer a lot of stylistic options, coming in a variety of colors, sizes, and styles. They are also a great option in case your youngster decides to play hairdresser on herself! Chunky 'dos can be tamed until they grow out with the help of a headband.
The bob has made a comeback on little ones, even being worn by Michelle Williams’ daughter Matilda Ledger and Heidi Klum's daughter, Leni Klum. Try this look on girls with finer hair that is looking for volume, or just for an easier alternative to longer locks.
If you think that boys don't have many options for hairdos, think again! There are plenty of options for your toddler son, ranging from classic 'dos to edgy looks. If you're looking to keep things simple, try a shorter cut; parting on the side is an easy way to tame shorter hair, or in the case of a buzz cut, no combing or parting is required.
Longer boys' hairdos include the shaggy look, also known as the surfer hairstyle. Let your boy's hair grow out and go natural in this carefree style. If you're thinking punk rock is more his style, a Mohawk could be a fun and daring choice. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, is a great example of this stylish and edgy look. For less of a commitment, medium-short cuts can go "faux-hawk" on occasion, and always have the option of a more classic style.
Whatever you choose, have fun and let your toddler's personality show with these fun hairstyle options!
