  • Check with the school’s dress code policy before deciding on elaborate hairstyles for school.
  • A hairdo for school needs to stay in place for 6-8 hours. Plan the hairstyle accordingly.
  • Medium-length hair is always easier to manage for school hairstyles. Short hair is always untamed and long hair takes time and effort.

I know you have those days when you don’t feel like getting out of bed to send your kid to school. What makes it worse is the thought of going through all the motions of dressing her up. On those lazy days, here’s a simple hairstyle for school girls that will take less than 5 minutes to do and still make your daughter look presentable at school.

What You Need

Hair elastics

How To Style
  1. Divide all of your daughter’s hair into 3 sections.
  2. Individually braid these 3 sections and secure the ends with hair elastics. You should end up with 3 braids lying right next to each other.
  3. With these three braids acting as individual strands, braid them into one giant braid and secure it at the end with a hair elastic.
Stylecraze Says
This hairstyle is a savior if your daughter’s hair is thin and lacks volume. It will help the hair thicker.

Here’s a hairstyle that will be perfect for your little angel when she has any kind of sports class or tournaments. Besides looking oh-so-trendy, Dutch pigtails can work great to keep all of her hair neatly off of her face. Another bonus for you is that it will be super easy to brush out her hair after untying these braids as they will prevent knots and tangles from forming in her hair.

What You Need

Hair elastics

How To Style
  1. Part your little one’s hair slightly off-center.
  2. Continue parting till the nape of her neck to divide all her hair into 2 sections.
  3. From the very front of the left section of her hair, pick up a 3 inch section of hair and divide it into 3 sections.
  4. Start Dutch braiding these 3 sections by alternately flipping the side strands under the middle strand and adding more hair into the braid from both sides with each stitch of braiding.
  5. Once the Dutch braid has reached the nape of her neck and you’ve run out of hair to add into it, simply braid the rest of the way down and secure the ends with a hair elastic.
  6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 on the right section of her head to complete the look.
