With the school holidays coming to a close, it’s time to start thinking about getting back into the school routine. Yep, it’s time to whip out those lunch boxes, clean out the school bags and buff up the shoes. And after spending the summer holidays letting your daughters hair run free and wild, it’s time to get back into ponytails, braids, buns and twists.
Today we’re sharing our favourite back to school hairstyles. Not only are these perfect for making sure your daughters hair stays out of her face during the day (because we all know how annoying a strand of hair in your eye is!), they’re also super important for reducing the chance of the dreaded head lice coming home!
If your child has spent any time at a child care centre, kindergarten or school, then you’re almost certain to know the dramas that head lice can cause. Let’s face it, having to comb through a full head of hair, strand by strand is not anyones idea of a fun night. Oh and don’t even let us get started on having to wash all of the sheets and pillows in the house.
So the number one most important rule when doing your daughters hair for school is to make sure that it’s tied up. A great trick is to pop an extra packet of hair ties into your little ones bag so that she always has a few emergency ties. Let’s check out some of the most practical (and cutest!) school hairstyles for girls.
