July 10 2023

As the back-to-school season approaches, it's time to start thinking about the perfect hairstyle that keeps your little girl looking stylish while providing the necessary protection for her hair. At Just For Girls Salon, we understand the importance of a practical yet trendy hairstyle for the school routine. Today we'll explore a variety of protective hairstyles that will not only make your daughter feel confident but also keep her hair healthy and manageable throughout the school year.

Box Braids

Box braids are a classic and versatile hairstyle that offers both protection and style. These braids involve sectioning the hair into neat squares and braiding them from the root to the ends. Box braids not only protect your daughter's natural hair from daily wear and tear but also minimize the need for frequent styling, saving you time during hectic school mornings. Choose the length and thickness that suits her and let her rock this timeless and protective hairstyle.

Scalp Braids

Scalp braids are another fantastic option for back-to-school hairstyles. These braids involve weaving the hair close to the scalp in a neat and organized pattern. Scalp braids provide excellent protection against tangles, frizz, and breakage, making them a popular choice for active little girls. Plus, they can be styled in various designs and patterns, adding a touch of creativity and individuality to her look. Get ready to make a statement with stylish and practical Scalp braids.


Twists are a versatile and low-maintenance hairstyle that keeps your daughter's hair protected while allowing her to embrace her natural texture. Whether she prefers two-strand twists or flat twists, this style offers a cute and trendy look for the school year. Twists can be left loose or styled into updos or ponytails, making them perfect for any occasion. Let your little girl show off her twist game and stay stylish throughout the school day.

Protective Ponytail

A protective ponytail is a simple yet effective hairstyle that keeps your daughter's hair off her face and minimizes damage caused by constant manipulation. To achieve this look, gather her hair into a high or low ponytail, securing it with a gentle hair tie. You can add braids, twists, or hair accessories for a personalized touch. A protective ponytail ensures that her hair stays intact and protected, allowing her to focus on her studies with confidence.

Buns and Updos

Buns and updos are sophisticated and practical hairstyles that offer excellent protection for your daughter's hair. Whether it's a sleek top knot, a low bun, or a creative braided updo, these styles keep her hair neatly tucked away and shielded from external elements. Buns and updos also minimize friction and breakage, making them ideal for long school hours. Let your little girl stand out with elegant and protective hairstyles that are perfect for any school event.

Halo Braid

The halo braid is a beautiful and trendy hairstyle that frames your daughter's face while keeping her hair protected. This style involves creating a crown-like braid around the head, offering a whimsical and ethereal look. The halo braid keeps her hair out of her face, making it ideal for focusing on her studies and participating in school activities. Embrace the back-to-school season with a heavenly and protective halo braid.

Two Strand Twists with Beads

Add some fun and flair to your daughter's back-to-school hairstyle with two-strand twists adorned with colorful beads. This style combines the benefits of protective twists with a playful touch. By adding beads to the ends of each twist, you not only protect her hair from damage but also create a vibrant and eye-catching look. Let her express her individuality and make a statement with this stylish and protective hairstyle.


Locs, also known as dreadlocks, are a fantastic option for back-to-school hairstyles that provide both protection and style. These natural, low-maintenance locks are created by allowing hair to coil and intertwine over time. With locs, your little girl can embrace her unique texture and express her individuality. They require minimal daily maintenance, making them perfect for busy school days. Let her rock her locs with confidence and stand out as she embraces the beauty of her natural hair.
