Cute Hairstyles For Little Girls
Simple and Easy Hairstyles
I love trying new braids, ponytails and updos on my two little girls, especially now that they have a little more hair. Cute hairstyles for little girls don't have to be complicated or require a lot of styling products and tools.
The styles I have featured take a minute or less because these two little ladies are always on the go and have much more important things to do than to sit still and have their hair styled!
These are hairstyles that any mom can do.
I've also included a few links to pageant hair tutorials.

My Bald Little Girls
I was so excited to find out I was going to be the mother of two little girls. I couldn't wait to put their hair in cute little pig tails with ribbons and bows. My little girls weren't born completely bald but the little hair they did have fell out before they were six months old. It fell out from the front to the back and grew back in from the back to the front so they have been sporting mullets for the past year.
Our girls have finally grown enough hair for me to be a little creative. I am so excited to be able to share these cute little girl hairstyles!
Small Rubber Bands
I use small rubber bands almost everyday. I like them because they don't slip out and they are available in a variety of colors.
I use small elastic rubber bands in my daughters' hair. They come in a variety of colors, do not slip out and remove easily without pulling out hair.

I am still learning to French braid my daughters' hair. It takes a lot of practice and patience. These are cute and easy braids that only takes a few minutes and looks very cute. Simply make two braids, cross them and secure with bobby pins or barrettes. My girls still have very short hair but this hairstyle would look really cute if you poofed out the hair on the ends.

Instructions for Netted Overlay Hairstyle
Here is my attempt at cornrows. My daughter was wiggling a little too much for me to roll the strands of hair but it still came out really cute. I added a little barrette to each little pigtail. She looked like a little lion when I was finished.

Side Pony Tail
The side pony tail is a favorite in our house. I didn't realize there was a problem with the classic ponytail until my daughters were old enough to start complaining about it. My girls are just ending the potty training stage. Placing a ponytail in the center of the back of their heads just isn't practical. It irritates them when I lay them down to change diapers. They also take naps in the middle of the day and sometimes prefer I leave their hair alone. The side ponytail allows them to sleep more comfortably without taking out the hairstyle.
Cute Variation Of The Pony Tail - Perfect Little Girls Hairstyle For Sports Events
This is the perfect little girl's hairstyle if your child plays a sport that requires a helmet or other type of headgear. The pony tails keep the hair nice and it also lie flat enough on the head to slip on a helmet.
This is also a unique hairstyle for a special event such as a holiday party or wedding. You can up the "wow" factor of this hairstyle by simply adding a cute bow or barrette to each ponytail before gathering the hair for the next rubber band

Pig tail - Great for Toddlers
My little girls had really short hair for a very long time. This pig tail hairstyle was one of the first hairstyles they were able to wear. You can see in the picture that I wet her hair a little bit to make the part a little neater. I use a comb with a pointy handle to make the part.
Don't underestimate the cuteness of simple pigtails. This hairstyle is so easy and versatile, add a couple of cute hair bows and you have a hairstyle for any occasion.

Pigtails With Small Rubberbands
How To Remove The Small Rubberbands
I have had several e-mails asking how to remove the small rubber bands with out pulling out hair. We have really been experimenting with the best solution for this problem. Initially, the girls had really short thin hair so the rubber bands would easily slide right out.
The rubber bands getting tangled and pulling hair has only recently become a problem. Here are the two best solutions we came up with.
1. Olive Oil works well and is a great conditioner. simply coat your fingers and rub a little bit of oil around the rubber band and it should slide right out.
2. Unfortunately, the small rubber bands we use usually are not salvageable. They are only good for a one time use so I have been using a small seam ripper to cut the rubber band. This obviously won't work if you plan to save the rubber bands but I love this solution. It's fast, easy.
I would love to hear some new tips. Feel free to leave a comment in the guestbook if you have a better solution. The comments usually takes about a day to appear in the guestbook.

Fun and Funky Cute Hairstyle For Little Girls
My daughter was wearing a bright colorful outfit today and she needed a hip, funky hairdo to match.
I wasn't sure what to do with her hair so I decided to make her a cute faux hawk with small rubber bands.
I started at the top and gathered the hair into a small ponytail. I did not pull the hair out completely when I wrapped the rubber band the last time. I did this four times creating a faux hawk of small loops. I finished it off with different colored barrettes. This hairstyle was fun, funky, fast and easy.

How To Do A Sock Bun on Toddlers
The sock bun is an easy up do for little girls with very short hair.Cut the toes off a sock and roll into a donut. Pull ponytail through the center of the donut and wrap hair around the sock. Secure bun with rubber band or bobby pins. Click on tutorial below to see pictures and step by step instructions.
My little girls' hair is still a little too short for messy buns instead; I make little fans out of pigtails. Make to little pigtails on top of the head but don't pull the hair all the way out when you wrap the rubber band for the last time than simply fan out the little bun.
Cool Hairstyles For Girls
This is a really easy hairdo but it does take a little time if you want to do all of your little girl's hair. I simply started on the left side and connected the little pigtails. I would have loved to do her entire head but she would only sit still long enough for one row.
Remember to have fun styling your little girl's hair. I choose not to use styling products or hair tools on my girls.They are still a little too young and I am sure they will be using hairspray and lipstick before I know it. None of the hairstyles you see on this website are perfect, they are simply cute and practical hairstyles that we use every day.
Some little girls prefer hairstyles that look more like mommy. They want something sleek, fashionable and stylish. These are a few of our day to day hairstyles but you can see a variety of cute styles haircuts on my website Cute Haircuts for Girls . It includes haircuts for girls with short medium and long hair. I've also recently added a few virtual makeover websites so you can upload you and your daughter's photos. Try on a few new hairstyles, cut and colors.
Try on a super short haircut or see your little girl with amazing long flowing hair. Don't forget to save your photos and share them with a friend.
