Looking for some fun and different ways to style your daughters' hair for back-to-school? While we love creating new styles, it can be challenging with little ones who have tangles and knots. My youngest is super fussy when we have to brush her curly locks where I have been using the classic JOHNSON'S® NO MORE TANGLES® Detangling Spray. Great on wet or dry hair, this innovative formula works to unlock knots and tangles in wet or dry hair so that it becomes manageable and easy to style. Another favorite is the JOHNSON'S® NO MORE TANGLES® Leave-in Conditioner, a fantastic formula that detangles and conditions in one-step. This is great for after you shampoo your child's hair as it unlocks the toughest knots and tangles for shiny, comb-friendly hair. Once the tangles are out you can easily get your daughter ready for back-to-school with some of these fun hairstyles. Here are just a few of our favorites.
- Make a deep part section.
- Connect deep part section to the left ear.
- Part out small sections.
- Make another ponytail.
- Continue parting out small sections of hair and joining the other ponies into them. You can do as few or as many of these as you want.
- Secure the last section of hair into a ponytail behind the left ear.
- Connect remaining hair to the left ponytail making it into one big side ponytail.
- Add a bow for a fun, girly look.
Two Ponytail Twist
- For a more fun look, part the hair vertically from right to left right down the middle of the head and then from ear to ear.
- With the hair sectioned out on the left side, make a small ponytail and secure with a rubber band.
- Repeat on the right side.
- Make a rope braid on each section, twisting all the way to the bottom.
- Secure each rope braid with a rubber band.
- Now you can add two bows at the beginning of each twist, and Voila!
The Bow Bun
Pull the hair back into a ponytail creating a loop using about half to three quarters of the hair in the ponytail, leaving a long loose end.
- Tuck the loose end into the elastic to keep the loop in place.
- Divide the looped hair into evenly distributed sections.
- Clip one loop off to the side using a bobby pin.
- Do the same with the other loop.
- Create the middle piece of the bow by taking the lose strand of hair in front of the bow and pull it back and through the middle of your bow sections.
- Tuck the strand securely into the hair tie and use bobby pins to secure it.
- Fluff out the bow for a fuller look.
- Start off by parting hair down the middle.
- Next begin at the temple and divide out small section of hair.
- Divide that section of hair in two pieces.
- Take those two pieces and cross bottom piece over the top piece.
- Add hair into bottom piece and cross it over the top piece.
- Continue adding hair & crossing it.
- Stop once you reach the nape of the neck.
- Make a rope braid with remaining hair & secure end with elastic.
- Repeat on the opposite side.
- Wind each rope braid up into a loose bun & secure with bobby pins as needed.
- Add a bow for a finishing touch.
Messy Side Fishtail Braid
- Divide your hair into two large sections, leave it messy for an even more perfect look.
- Pull out a thin strand from the first section and pass it on to the second section. Like cross stranding. The skinnier your strand is, the better your fishtail is going to look.
- Pull out a thin strand from the second section and mix it with the first section. Do it just how you did it before.
- Repeat the steps till you reach to the very end of it.
