For women and little girls all across the world, hair isn’t just something to be simply styled for beautification purposes. For most of them, it is their identity. An integral part of themselves. It is a reflection of their personality and projects an image of each person.
This is why many women go to any lengths to make sure that their hair always looks on point. And when it comes to little girls, mothers always take special care in always dolling them up and putting them presentably.
While most of the beauty industry is concerned about the hairstyles of adult men and women, the options for styling the hair of little girls are also several. Listed below are 60 hairstyles of different hair types and textures which are the most trending hairstyles these days.
1. Cute Braided Hair

4. Long Braided Hair
Long braided hair is a trademark hairstyle of many little African girls as well as women. It is a great way to demonstrate their versatile traditions and practices.

Yet another cute look that shows how extremely adorable small braids look on little cute girls. The hair has been maintained at the length of the shoulder and has been side-parted with tiny little braids that have been bought together and tucked up inside on the front of the hair itself.
This look is likely to suit those girls with thin hair as this hairstyle is not suited for those who have a thick hair structure.

8. Braided Ponytail
I can’t get over the cuteness of this look. It truly is giving off major summer vibes and can be well adapted by hairstylists into the look-book of adult hairstyles for women too. The hair on the front has been divided into many square sections in which each section was then tied into a bun.
The remaining hair below the one has subsequently been made into tiny little braids and along with the rest of the hair on the head, they have been pulled back to form a tight and high ponytail.
9. Braided Curly Afro Hair
Curly African hair locks that have been combined with braids is always a look that slays; be it on little girls and boys or even on adult men and women. The hair on the front has been divided into tiny sections which have been tied up in a bun, and they go behind the hair.
And the hair in the middle, between each of these sections along with the remainder of the hair in the buns, have been tightly tied up into a braid which has been pulled back into a high ponytail.
10. Twisted Hair
Huge applause to whoever styled this hair because this look is pure creativity and truly a work of art. It goes on to show how art isn’t just about drawing or paintings but in the ability to create something very versatile even in the most basic things such as hair as showcased here.
The sectioned hair has been tied up into thin little buns, and then they were twisted from both sides and pulled back into a cute little ponytail.
11. Messy Blonde Hair
This hairstyle looks too adorable on this little bundle of cuteness. Hairstyles like these have always been inspired by the hairstyles that were in practice many years ago and which were most commonly found among old queens and princesses and in other members who belonged to noble families.
The hair on the front has been pulled back in various sections and tied into a beautiful yet subtly messy-looking knot behind. And the rest of the hair has been let down falling loosely all over.
12. Wholly Braided Hair
Most of us have wished to tie up or style our hair like this at least one time in our life. While we can style it to make it that way, not everyone has been blessed with such curly hair that can be styled into braids like this.
This look also reminds me of the time when I wanted to style my hair like Jaden Smith’s hair after watching the movie Karate Kid. While some people opt only to braid part of their hair and leave the rest of the hair as it is, here we can see that all of the long hair on this little girl has been tied into braids that fall long below the shoulders.
13. Cute Messy Bun
This little girl looks too adorable and cute. And her hair? Even cuter. She has been given straight bangs on the front, and the remainder of the hair has been tied into a high bun behind. This look is mostly suited for those who have thin or fine hair.

This is also another example of long braided hair which has been entirely braided and made prettier with tiny hair accessories at the bottom of the hair. The hair at the top has been tied up into a high bun.

15. Classy Hair with A Top Bun
This look is so simple yet manages to look incredibly stylish. This hairstyle has been spotted among many little girls who have long hair, but when they need to take the stress and thoughts about their hair for a moment or two, it can just be pulled together into a round bun at the top of the hair.
You can spice up the look a little bit by adding a cute hair accessory below the bun or simply by choosing a colorful headband on the front.

Oh my god. Wavy hair has never looked better than this hairstyle. I mean, how amazing does this look? Kudos to the brilliant hairstylist who has done a great job at transforming a simple hairstyle into something more than simple and entirely changed the look.

20. Short Bob with Bangs
Bobs always have a way about them that makes them look extremely classy on little girls and adult women alike. Although they are quite different from the normal long hairstyles that people love, bobs are capable of simply changing up the entire look of a person.
This cute little girl has a very short bob, which falls only a little below the ears, and she has paired this look with bangs on the front.
21. High Braided Hair

Here are some commonly asked questions about children’s hair health.
How to keep my little girl’s hair healthy?
To keep your little girl’s hair healthy, clean, moisturize, and style her hair with the best methods. The basic rules for keeping your little girl’s hair healthy are:
- Keep hairstyles loose
- Use covered rubber bands or hair ties for braids or ponytails FAQs
- Avoid heat and chemicals
- Detangle with wide tooth combs
- Always wash hair after a swim
How often should I wash my child’s hair?
Rather than washing the hair every day, wash your child’s hair two or three times a week. Minimal washes allow natural hair oils to hydrate the hair.
If your child has oily hair, you can wash it every other day. Little girls with curly or coarse hair should get their hair washed three times a week.
How to hydrate my daughter’s hair?
Use clarifying shampoos when washing your little girl’s hair. Clarifying shampoos remove dirt and buildup. If your child’s hair is thin or stringy, you can look into using a volumizing shampoo. Little girls with curly or coarse hair should use shampoos with no sulfates.
Conditioners should be applied to the hair whenever it is rinsed out, regardless of if it is washed. Oils can be used on top of the conditioner, hair creams, or butters to seal in the moisture.
Can I use conditioner on my little girl’s hair?
Conditioners can benefit any child over the age of two. Using conditioner is specifically helpful to prevent breakage in the detangling process for little girls.
How can I get my daughter’s hair to grow naturally?
As little girls grow, their hair grows with them. Each hair type and texture grows differently. But rest assured, all hair grows!
To help your little girl’s hair grow healthily and naturally, detangle the hair from the bottom to the top. Starting at the bottom and working your way up prevents large knots and breakage.
Additionally, you should refrain from pulling the hair tight when styling it. And always take out any hair ties before bedtime, so your daughter can sleep with her hair down.
Does cutting a little girl’s hair help it grow?
Yes. Like adult hair, keeping a little girl’s hair trimmed and removing split ends dramatically increases the health of the hair as well as its length. Cutting off the damaged ends allows the hair to grow out without continuous breakage.
About 60 different hairstyles have been listed above, and each of them is quite different from the other. This is a perfect list of hairstyles for little girls. These styles are not only so adorable, but they are also quite easy to style and maintain too.
Mothers love dolling up their daughters, and this list will surely come in handy for those mothers who are looking for many different hairstyles for their little princesses.
