Getting kids ready in the morning for school is no easy task; I have gathered 15 EASY little girl hairstyles just for you. Especially when they aren’t quite old enough to do their own hair. I’m a psycho about my kids hair so I’d love to do their hair until high school, but I’m fully aware that will never happen!

I love little girl hairstyles that are quick, easy, cute and that will last ALL DAY LONG even during recess at school. Kids are movin’ and a groovin’ so I prefer most of my kids hairstyles up and out of their face. I hate to see kids hair in their eyes all day long. It drives me crazy!

I’ve rounded up my most favorite and easy hairstyles for your little girls. Seriously ANYONE can do these!!! These are SO EASY and CUTE!

Hopefully this makes your mornings run a little smoother and your daughter will feel like a million bucks walking out the door with her fancy new!

Braid Hairstyles for Kids

Hairstyle #1: The Heidi

A video tutorial for this hairstyle is linked HERE. This is one of my all time favorites.

Hairstyle #2: Two Braided Twist

Part hair down the center and put each half into pony tails. Braid each pony tail and secure with elastic. Take one braid and wrap it around the other pony tail and back over. Secure with bobby pins. Do the same thing with the other side. It doesn’t have to look perfect. It will all just mesh together. This would look even cuter with fish tail braids.

Hairstyle #3: Triple Braid

You can also switch this up by doing fish tail braids instead. Fishtail braids just take a little longer. You can part the hair in the center or a little off to the side.

Hairstyle #4: Half Up Half Down Braids

I love to do this hairstyle the day after I do #6 because the hair looks like it’s curled from the braid the day before.

Hairstyle #5: French Braid into Messy Bun

The first picture is the side view (girl on left) and the next is the front view. Part hair on side. Start french braiding (or dutch braid) on the parted side. Continue along the head until you reach above the other ear. Gather remaining hair and secure with an elastic. Then grab another elastic and do a messy bun or whatever type of bun you prefer! Top it off with a cute bow to finish the look!

Bun Hairstyles

Hairstyle #6: Messy Bun

We have mastered the messy bun. Head here for How to do a messy bun tutorial and tips.

Hairstyle #6: Classic Bun

Use lots of gel and hairspray for this one. You can either twist hair and wrap around or braid it. I also love to switch it up a bit and do the bun on the side of her head.

Hairstyle #8: Rope Twist Bun

View this tutorial HERE. It’s like the classic bun but with a little twist. (Pun intended)

Hairstyle #9: Rolled Over Bun

Secure hair in a pony tail. Gather all the hair and start rolling the hair from the end of the pony tail towards her face. Once you get to her head, spread out bun a little and secure with A LOT of bobby pins. I love adding the bow to the back for this hairstyle.

Hairstyle #11: 3 Braided Buns

I love this one. It looks difficult but it’s not one bit. Check out the hair tutorial HERE.

Hairstyle #12: 3 Twisted Buns

This hairstyle is a little edgy and rocker girl-ish. Check out the tutorial HERE.

Bubble Ponytail

Hairstyle #13: Bubble Pony

French braid or Dutch braid the top section of hair and secure with elastic. Part another section an inch above ear and add in the section above. Continue down the hair repeating steps. Pull hair out a little between each elastic to make it look like a bubble. Really cute and easy!

Half Up Half Down Hairstyle

Hairstyle #14: Twisted Hair Down

This is way easy and perfect if your girl wants to wear her hair down but not in her face. All you do is twist the section of hair in front back towards you. Secure with a bobby pin.

This is also a cute idea if you’re wanting her to wear her hair down but out of her face.

This is a darling half up half down hairstyle. Put a side part in your daughter’s hair. Then divide the one side into three sections. Take each section and topsy tail it. Wala! I would either straighten the hair left down or you could curl it to dress it up more.


Hairstyle #15: Pigtails with Bows

Now this is probably the easiest one of all, but I love it and they look ADORABLE! You’ve got to add the bows or ribbons or it’s just not as cute!
