As part of our Hairdorables week on UKMums.tv, we are aiming to inspire you with these Back to School hairstyles that the kids are sure to love. Whether you’re a new mum who is daunted by the prospect of styling your little one’s hair for the very first time or you simply just want to try a new hairstyle out on your child then why not give one of these hairstyles a go?

We’ve scouted the internet for some hairstyles that are ideal for Back to School and if you’re feeling a bit rusty, why not try them out first with your little one on a Hairdorables doll?

A ponytail is a relaxed hairstyle and it’s the basis for a lot of other hairstyles such as braids, a bun, double-twist ponytails and more.

Space buns aka double buns
Space buns otherwise known as double buns look really fun and futuristic! We love this snap from braidheaven16 but just make sure that you have plenty of grips to hand!

From Dutch braids to French and fishtail braids, there are oodles of braids to master that require time, practice and patience. For beginners, start with the simple yet classic three strand braid that are easy for anyone to execute – if you get stuck or want to try a style with more difficulty take a look on YouTube.

You can watch the tutorial here.

Keep it simple
Whether your little one has naturally curly, wavy or straight hair, it should be embraced so why not style their hair down. Plus, hair down styles won’t eat into your morning routine as much! Simply brush out their bed hair and pop in a few cute hair clips or an Alice band to keep hair out of their face. We love the Little Smiths hair accessories for children from Paul Smith that include adorable Alice bands, multi-coloured butterfly clips and bow shaped clips. The range is available in Sainsbury’s stores nationwide with prices starting from £2!

Have you tried out one of these hairstyles on your little one? If so, we’d love to see your snaps over on Facebook and Twitter.
