Kids Back to School Hairstyles – 5 Simple Ones for Girls

I’m all about sharing some easy and simple Kids Back to School Hairstyles! It’s that time of year when our kids need to be up and ready for school. Whether they’re heading in school or doing it virtually, this time of year can be a little stressful. My daughter is heading into school, but a little sad that she has to wear a mask all day. It’s the way of the world right now, but it’s tough for the little ones to understand.

It made me start thinking about school and how different it is for everyone this year. Even if you’re home doing school virtually, you still need to be seen from the waist up. Just like I’m prepping for ZOOM calls with some pretty accessories and jewelry and tops, same goes for our kids. I thought it would be fun to share some kids back to school hairstyles. Hair is one thing everyone can rock right now, whether you’re at school or home.

I hadn’t really thought about how important is was to make sure our kids felt back to school ready in terms of their hairstyles until the other night when my daughter asked if I could braid her hair for the first day. Since she knows she will be wearing a mask and sticking with the same small group of kids, she wanted her hair to be fun for the first day!


Kids back to school hairstyles might just be something you need to be better at this year and I’m here to help! I started doing hairstyles with my little girl on TikTok during March because we were home and we just wanted something FUN to do together every single day. It was our “task” of the day, but it was a fun one that we looked forward to together.

I’m going to share with you (5) SIMPLE Hairstyles you can do on your girls. I wanted to make sure they were doable kidsback to school hairstyles because nobody has time in the morning for anything too crazy. I’ve never been good at intricate hairstyles for girls. I’ve always had to do simple and easy, but the good news is that there are SO MANY simple and easy kids back to school hairstyles.

1st Hairstyle: This is a simple ponytail style. All you need to do is take a small section of hair and wrap it around the ponytail. Once it’s secured at the end, it’s so cute. I love this style because it’s quick and easy, but also SUPER CUTE!
