Fun Long Hairstyle Ideas to Keep Hair out of Your Child’s Face

As a parent, keeping your child’s hair out of their face is essential. It is annoying when long hair gets in their eyes, and it can also be a safety hazard. Plus, hair stays cleaner and less tangled when it’s not flying about your child’s face and head. Fortunately, you can use plenty of easy and stylish hairstyles to keep your child’s hair out of their face. This blog post will share some of our favorite long hairstyle ideas for kids.

Pro Tip: Before starting to style your child’s hair, make sure to gather all your supplies (brush, product, ties, etc.) and some activities your daughter can do while you’re working on her hair. I used to read a book while my mom braided my hair. My daughters also sometimes play on their tablet or sketch while I’m doing their hair. Meghan Joy Yancy (whose daughters have amazing hair!) says her daughters usually watch a TV show while she braids their hair (and does squats to keep herself fit at the same time!).

Goddess Braids

Goddess braids (or many small French braids) are a fun and beautiful long hairstyle idea for your child. A bonus is that these braids can last for several days, depending on your daughter’s hair type, so you may only have to braid her hair once or twice a week.

Before starting, make sure you have all the necessary hair supplies close at hand. You’ll need styling gel, a boar bristle brush, hair elastics, and some bobby pins. If you want to make the style more elegant, use some gold or silver cuffs.

Start with clean and damp hair. Apply some styling gel from the roots to the ends of the hair. Then, brush the hair with a boar bristle brush to eliminate any knots or tangles.

Part the hair down the middle or to the side. Then, take a section of hair from each side and braid it back. Secure the braids with a hair elastic. Repeat this process until all of the hair is braided. Wrap each braid around the head and secure it with a bobby pin. You can add gold or silver cuffs to the braids for a more elegant look.

Side Pigtail Braids

This long hairstyle idea is perfect for little girls with long hair. To create this look, part the hair down the middle and make two pigtail braids on each side of the head. You can secure the braids with hair ties or small clips.

Try adding colorful hair accessories or beads to the braids for creativity. This hairstyle is also perfect for active kids as it will keep their hair out of their faces while they play. Placing the hair elastic at the base of the braid helps contain fine or flyaway hair.

Topknot Bun

The classic hairstyle works well for both girls and boys. However, children with long, thick hair may find this hairstyle gives them a headache due to the weight of their hair. When styling the hair, use a soft grip hair tie, so it doesn’t damage their hair.

To create this look, start by gathering the hair into a high ponytail on the top of the head. Then, twist the hair and wrap it around to create a bun shape. Secure the bun in place with a hair tie and some bobby pins.

The great thing about this hairstyle is that it can be as neat or messy as you want it to be. For a neater look, try using a wet brush to smooth the hair before putting it into the bun.

Half-Up, Half-Down

The hairstyle is an attractive and easy option for kids with long hair. Start by parting the hair down the middle or side to create this look. Then, take a section of hair from each side and tie it back with a clip or a hair tie. My oldest likes to pull back the top section of her hair and braid it, leaving the rest loose underneath.

You can leave the rest of the hair loose or put it in a ponytail. This is a perfect hairstyle for kids who have trouble keeping their hair out of their faces. It’s also perfect for kids who are growing out their hair.

Ponytail

This is a timeless hairstyle that works for both girls and boys. To create this look, gather all the hair into a high ponytail on the top of the head. You can add a little hairspray or gel to keep the hair in place.

Try adding braids or twists around the base of the ponytail. Besides, you can also add some colorful hair accessories or beads to the ponytail. Besides, a ponytail is an excellent option for kids involved in sports or other activities.

Faux Hawk

It’s a trendy hairstyle that’s perfect for active kids. First, brush the hair back with a wet brush. Then, use a gel or pomade to style the hair into spikes.

For a more creative look, try adding some color to the spikes. You can also add some beads or other hair accessories. The good thing about the style is that it can be as neat or exaggerated as you want it to be. What you need is just a little bit of gel or pomade to style the hair.

You can try many long hairstyle ideas on your kid to keep their hair out of their face. These are just a few of the most popular and easy-to-do styles. With a bit of practice, you’ll be able to create any hairstyle you want. Just remember to use soft grip hair ties and some bobby pins.
