The Best Choices For Back-To-School Hairstyles For Your Daughter

July 25 2022

With school right around the corner, you want to make sure your daughter has a hairstyle that is both protective for her hair and stylish so she can feel her best. And there are plenty of trendy, protective styles to go around for every little girl to have a unique look. Here we list just a few of the available styles that you can request to have done at Just 4 Girls Salon.

The Classic Twist

Getting some pretty and cute twists to go back to school can be a simple, stylish, easy way to give your little girl the perfect first-day hairstyle. Twisting strands of hair together and adding cute clips and colorful, gentle hair ties to her hairdo will be just what she needs to keep her hair healthy and pretty.

Trendy Lemonade Braids

Lemonade braids are the hairstyle you get when box braids meet cornrows. Often swept to the side of the head, this protective style is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for the little lady in your life- especially if she has longer hair. This style can be paired with decorative braid rings as well, which can be a fun opportunity for your child’s self-expression. Even if she does not like the idea of braid rings, they are often styled and braided in a way that appears in a lovely and elegant pattern- which is not only great for a first day back at school but provides an opportunity to keep the hairstyle when it needs to be redone while letting the scalp rest, because the braiding patterns can be changed to meet the needs of your daughter.

Bantu Knots

If you find yourself pressed for time with day-to-day styling and want to give yourself a break, Bantu knots are a great way to keep your daughter's hair protected and stylish, as well as give yourself a week free of worry about your child’s hair. Bantu knots typically last for about a week, creating a variety of cute spiral knots across her head, resembling a crown.

Protective Braids + Top Knot

Have you ever tried putting your daughter’s gorgeous braids into a bun? Gathering a portion on top of her head will give her a new hairstyle to wear alongside her longer lasting protective style. She will look adorable with her top knot and braids.

Give It A Rest

Sometimes, it can be nice to just let your hair down and not worry about styling. And it is good for the scalp as well. Giving your daughter’s hair a rest will help prevent hair thinning in the future from the stress of tight styles, as well as give her a chance to show off her hair as it is.

The Bubble Braid

Bubble braiding your daughter's hair is a simple, five-minute hairstyle for when you are on the go that can help make sure it stays out of her face and free of tangles throughout the day. You can spice up her look with extra color by choosing colorful hair ties and clips at the end of the braids to personalize the look.

Protective styles and natural hair often benefit from being accompanied by a silk-lined bonnet or scarf around bedtime. Sleeping with unprotected hair can make it look worn, instead of keeping a sleek, fresh look. You can also make sure her hair stays moisturized throughout the day with leave-in conditioners.
