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 Wiki but just make sure that you have plenty of grips to hand!

From Dutch braids. To French plaits 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.

Keep It Simple

Whether your little one has naturally curly, wavy or straight hair. Embrace it! Why not go ‘au naturel’ and style their hair down.

Plus, hair down styles won’t eat into your morning routine as much!

Simply brush out their bed hair. Then pop in a few cute hair clips or an Alice band to keep hair out of their eyes.
