I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am a CREATURE OF HABIT. Yup. I’m boring as can be. I eat two eggs for breakfast every morning, I always curl my hair, and I have about a dozen striped navy and white shirts. I realized one day that I was doing Tiny’s hair EXACTLY the same every day. I pulled it into a half up side pony and we were good to go for the day. Not only was it easy, it only takes about 30 seconds, which is already an ETERNITY for a toddler who wants to run off and play.

I decided I was going to start trying a different hairstyle every day to expand my very limited hair horizons. I thought I’d share with you a few of the hairstyles I came up with for Tiny in case you struggle with finding ways to do your toddler’s hair as well!

1. Simple Bow

This one doesn’t even need any direction, you pin back the hair to one side with a bow. Ta-dah! This darling bow is from Baby B Bows. Make sure you check them out on etsy.

This is my everyday go to!

  1. Start by wetting the hair (wet hair is easier to work with because you can get all of those little wispy hairs tied back with the rest! I don’t list this step for every hair style, but I ALWAYS START with wet hair!!!!!)
  2. Part the hair on one side and pull together in the middle of the opposite side of the head.
  3. Secure with an elastic.

This hairstyle is even cuter with a bow!

  1. Part the hair on one side and pull together in the middle of the opposite side of the head.
  2. Secure with an elastic.
  3. Feed the hair from the pony tail underneath and through itself. Pull it out the other end all the way until the ponytail looks upsidedown. You can find an inexpensive tool on Amazon that makes this step super easy!

4. Single Tie

This one is also extremely simple. Simple and cute, yet those pesky bangs won’t be in their face all day long.

5. Double Tie

This is an extension of the Single Tie, but it makes it a little more fancy and gets more hair out of the face.

  1. Take a small amount of hair front the front of the forehead in the center and secure it off to the side with an elastic.
  2. Take another section of hair front just behind the first and pull it together with the hair coming out of the first elastic. Secure both together with another elastic.

6. Triple Tie

You guessed it! This is just an extension of the last two. Plus a bow, of course!

  2. Take another section of hair front just behind the first and pull it together with the hair coming out of the first elastic. Secure both together with another elastic.
  3. Do this a third time with an even larger section of hair from behind the second elastic. Securing All three together now with one elastic at the back.

7. Triple Combination

This one is fun and looks intricate, but is actually quite simple.

  1. Divide the hair into two square sections down the center of their head.
  2. Secure each section with an elastic. (I prefer to start with the back because Tiny’s hair falls forward and gets in the way)
  3. Now pull both of the ponies together along with another section of hair just below those two ponies, about the same size in length.
  4. Secure the new section and both of the ponies together with an elastic.

This style looks great with a bow as well!

8. Topsy Turvy Triple Combination

This style is similar to the Triple Combination, but you’ll flip the last pony underneath itself.

  5. Pull the hair from this last pony underneath and through itself. You can find a handy dandy tool to help with this step on Amazon.

9. Front Twist

This one is popular on teens and adults, but is usually secured with a bobby pin… which wouldn’t work on a toddler for obvious reasons!!

  1. Start by taking a small piece of hair from the front and start twisting.
  2. Continue adding hair as you twist to the side and back.
  3. Grab a small amount of hair that is NOT going to get added into the twist. Instead, use this piece of hair as an anchor for the twist.
  4. Secure them together with the elastic.

I like adding a bow to this one as well… Gosh, I’m starting to think I have a bow addiction… nah! This gorgeous bow is also from Baby B Bows!

10. Front Braid

Most Infants/Toddlers won’t have enough hair for a full braid or two french braids, but you won’t need much hair for this cute front braid.
