If you're looking for Easy Girls Hairstyles for back to school then check out a few of my favorites! My little girl is one that doesn't like to get around very early so we are always in a rush to get her hair done quickly on our way out the door.

Here are a few of our favorite quick hairstyles that will help keep you on schedule and ready to go!

Top Twist

This is by far the quickest way to get my little girl’s hair out of her face. You just twist back the top section adding in a little hair as you go back to make it secure, then secure with a ponytail, and add a bow. The twisting actually keeps it from falling down into her face as the day goes on so this one typically stays really well for us.

Topsy Turvy

I’m a 90’s Girl, so that means I grew up in the age of the Topsy Turvy (Anyone else remember these?) You can still get them on Amazon, but you can also do these with your fingers. Just start with a ponytail, place two fingers through the bottom of the ponytail, then Flip the Hair Up into the fingers and pull it through. It works really well and again helps to secure fine hair for longer lengths of time.


Half Braid

My girl loves a side pony tail but the problem we run into is the hair on the opposite side falling down. I finally started french braiding the opposite side of the ponytail to help keep all the smaller hairs up and tight. Start by braiding the Opposite side of the ponytail and then braid out longer than you want the french braid to go and secure with a ponytail holder. Then pull all the hair up on the side of the head and secure with another ponytail (Higher than the end of the braid). Once you have secured all the hair you can remove the first ponytail and add a bow.

I also highly recommend buying a Knot Genie Brush. These are small round brushes with multiple layers of bristles, these are a big lifesaver in our home, they make brushing tear free and less tears means less stress getting out the door!
