Both of my daughters have long hair, which they love!
When the warm days get even hotter towards the end of summer, long hair can be a nuisance. That’s why they’ve perfected a couple of quick and easy hairdos that are cute, a bit messy (so playtime doesn’t cause too much damage), and that keep their hair up and out of the way.
Kylie’s go-to hairdo is this simple modified pony tail. Just place the hairband around your daughter’s pony tail like you normally would. Pull all the hair through the band a couple times, and on the last pass through, only pull the hair half way through. Separate the end sticking out, and spread it around in a fan-like fashion. Ta-da! Easy-peasy!
Caitlyn has become quite obsessed with the messy bun, and it’s perfect for her long thick hair. Here’s her six second messy bun demonstration:
Once you’ve got your daughter’s hair in an easy and quick updo, add a bit of flair with a headband, barrette or bow!
Even when hair is simply pulled back, bits of color can look super cute. We created these headbands and feather hair clips ourselves with ALEX craft kits.
