With summer winding down, we are excited to get into the groove of back-to-school. This includes finding the latest deals and stocking up on all of our essentials. Another way we are getting ready is by checking out new hair trends for our kids. For inspiration we have been checking out the trends from Cozy Friedman, kids’ hair authority and owner of Cozy's Cuts for Kids salons in New York City, who has so many practical and effortless hairstyles for kids. As the author of Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair, we are sharing her styles for a basic bun, looped pigtails, and loose braid that provides parents with hairstyle ideas for their kids to for any occasion, especially for back to school.
Check out some of these stylish looks from Cozy’s book to create the ultimate look for back-to-school.
The Basic Bun
This simple way of scooping hair up always makes girls feel grown-up, and most importantly, getting hair off of her face and neck during the hot summer months!
Don’t make the bun too tight or severe; a softer style is not only prettier, but also more comfy.
Step 1: Starting with damp hair, comb through to smooth and remove tangles.
Step 2: Gather hair in a loose ponytail. Position the ponytail where you want the bun to be on the head: low at the nape, middle of the head, or high on the crown. Secure with a ponytail holder.
Step 3: Twist the ponytail into a tight rope, coiling it around itself at the base.
Step 4: Tuck the ends of the coil into the ponytail holder at the base. Then secure the bun by pushing bobby pins into the hair at the bun’s base on all sides. The thicker the hair, the more pins you’ll need. Lightly spritz the bun with hair spray to lock in the style.
Super-simple and super-cute –the looped pigtails shows off your little one’s cute face while keeping them cool!
Step 1: Starting with dry hair, comb or brush the hair to smooth and detangle it. Part the hair down the middle of the head.
Step 2: Hold the hair from one side of the part and make a low ponytail below the ear on that side, using a cute ponytail holder. When you pull the hair through the holder for the final time, don't pull it all the way through: Leave the ends stuck in the holder to form a loose loop below. The longer the hair, the larger the loop will be.
Step 3: Repeat on the other side of the part. Use your fingers to make the loops about the same size on both sides.
Braids are not going anywhere! An easy but chic style for longer hair, and so on-trend!
Step 1: Starting with dry hair, brush it smooth and detangle it.
Step 2: Using a fine-tooth comb, divide the hair into three equal sections: right, left and middle.
Step 3: Hold the right section in your right hand and the other two sections separately in your left. Cross the right section over the middle section and hold with your left hand. The original right section is not the middle section.
Step 4: Now cross the left section over the middle section. The original left-hand section is now the middle section.
Step 5: Continuing alternating right and left sections over the middle, until you reach the end of the hair. Secure with a ponytail holder.
