Fun and Easy Hairstyles for Girls

These simple hairstyles have been lifesavers for our crazy, busy life!

We’ll be packing for another trip, hop into the car, and I’ll realize I didn’t fix someone’s hair.

As soon as we’re all buckled up, I’ll lean over and make one of these hairstyles.

Sometimes I keep a spray bottle of water handy so I can always quickly wet someone’s hair for a braid! :)

First Simple Hairstyle: The “Spring Do”

My nine-year-old daughter actually did this one — it’s that simple!

Use coordinating, colorful rubber bands (grab them here) to put extra bursts of color in this hairdo and top it off with a big flower clip at the bottom.



  1. For best results, thoroughly wet hair.
  2. Then, pull the hair into equal sections starting from the crown.
  3. Brush out any bumps after each small pony-tail.
  4. Be sure to keep hair tightly pulled.
  5. Continue gathering hair and securing with a rubber band.
  6. Five or six bands in coordinating colors work best.
  7. Lastly, attach a large bow at the bottom of the pony-tail.

Next, is a super-fun hairstyle for all American Girl Doll fans!

Second Simple Hairstyle: The “Kirsten Larson.”

We love the doll and the girls wanted to look just like her.

I use this hairstyle for dressier events as well.

You can add rhinestone clips for a nice hairstyle for a wedding or special ceremony.

It’s not as complicated as it looks!



  1. For best results, thoroughly wet hair before styling.
  2. Separate hair into two parts, parting down the middle.
  3. Then, braid each side of hair and secure with rubber band.
  4. Next, tuck braid inside where the top of the braid starts.
  5. Secure with another rubber band. Then use ribbons, clips or barrettes for a perfect finish!

Third Simple Hairstyle: “Piggy Buns”

Easy hairstyles for little girls that are simple to make

My girls have enjoyed this hairstyle since they were two years old.

This works best for shoulder-length or shorter hair.

Long hair tends to make too big of a bun.



  1. For best results, thoroughly wet hair before styling.
  2. Part hair down the middle in one perfect part.
  3. Then, take one side and make it into a pig-tail.
  4. Secure with rubber band.
  5. Next, wrap the pigtail into a bun.
  6. Secure the bun with a rubber band or even two.
  7. Then add a fun scrunchie, barrette or clip. Repeat on the other side.
  8. Add a touch of hair-spray for longer hold.

If you loved that inspiration, we're sure you'll love these too!

    Riley wears “piggy buns” on a regular basis… and that’s exactly what we call them. :) Cute ideas!

  2. Thanks for the cute hair ideas. The piggy buns were quick and easy and even survived a day of outdoor play. :-) My second daughter was thrilled with the curls she discovered when we took the “buns” out. She was a little disappointed when we had to wash them away. Thanks again for your thoughts and ideas. I’ve received much encouragement from this blog. It’s truly been a blessing and help to me. We are praying for you and your family

    1. So glad you got to try the hairstyles, Sarah! I completely forgot about the fun curls it makes:)
