Parents have a lot of leeway when it comes to girls’ hairstyles; because girls can wear their hair short, medium or long, there are lots of options for them to choose from. Selecting girls hairstyles is relatively easy; first you need to decide what is most important to you. Do you need something low maintenance for an active or busy girl? Do you want something that's versatile and can be styled in many different ways? What kind of texture does your child's hair have and how can you best take advantage of it?
Short Hairstyles for Girls
For low maintenance girls hairstyles, short and long cuts are the best. Short cuts are wash and wear, and long hair can be easily tied back out of the way for girls on the go. If you want hair that you can wash quickly and don't have to worry about blow-drying, a short hairstyle is best.
There are many different hairstyles for young girls with medium length hair. Because hairstyles here are between long and short, proper washing and brushing is required as well as being more careful of tangle ups in situations like swings and other playtime activities. Medium hairstyles make up for this, by providing an abundance of cute hairstyles. From braids, to cute tiebacks, to slight curls and the ends, there are a lot to chose from. Two of our favorites are Dakota Fanning and back in '7th Heavens' beginning days, Ruthie Camden's cute look with her curly hair.
Any hair length longer than the shoulders is usually not recommended for young girls unless you take the time to take care of their hair. If you have seen the movie 'Curly Sue', the little girl's hair is very long and curly, but what many parents need to understand is that it can get tangled, knotted up, and very dirty. Thus, just like adult hair, a lot more care is needed for girls with longer length hair. If you decide to go with longer length hairstyles, there are some cute hairstyles. Cute braids are probably the best everyday option, but more time consuming, as they are less likely to get tangled up. Other than that, just letting the hair fall straight down will be the best look. For special occasions, adding slight curls or waves, or even putting their hair in cute updos can be very cute.
