Summer is a fun time for kids. Children will finally be able to spend most of their time outdoors. They can play in their backyards, go on a sleepover, or perhaps spend an afternoon in the pool with their friends. To make the most of the summer, you can give your child a stylish hairstyle so your child won’t be bothered by loose strands and a sweaty head.

Here are kids summer hairstyles you can consider:

For Girls

1. Braided pigtails

2. Messy bun

You can create a loose bun that will make your child look cute and cool all summer. To do this, simply squirt a small amount of hair gel and then slick her hair back. Secure the hair in the middle of your child’s head and blow-dry the ponytail to create a wave. Wind the ponytail around the base and secure using bobby pins. Pill a few strands to give it a messy effect.

3. Ponytail with a twist

Secure the end using a ponytail holder and then twist the ponytail braid around the base of your child’s head in such a way that it covers the ponytail holder. Secure it with some clips.

4. Braided beauty

You can make your princess all glammed up with this kids summer hairstyle. You can opt for a French braid to give it a more classic look. Simply divide the hair into two sections parting from the middle. At the top of the first section, start braiding her hair until above the ear. Hold the rest with elastic band. Do the same for the other side.

5. Classic bob

A classic bob looks great on little girls. Cut right at your child’s jawline and layer slightly so as not to make the hair look heavy. Then using a wide toothed comb, you can brush her hair after she gets out of the shower. Part the hair and let it dry. You can use a flat iron to enhance the look.

For Boys

1. Beach bum

This hairstyle looks great on men but it’s just as adorable on your child. This is excellent for little boys with wavy hair. Simply comb his hair using your fingers to arrange the top hair forward and the side and back going downward. Scrunch curling cream to ensure the hair doesn’t get unruly.

2. Teacher’s pet

3. Little troublemaker

If you have a toddler this is the perfect hairstyle for the summer. Simply brush his hair using your fingers forward while it’s still wet. Add some styling product to add texture.

4. Spiked up

So if you’ve got a son who’s at least 9, he will prefer the spike hairstyle. Simply use your fingers to get his top hair to stand leaning towards his face. Add a strong hold styling gel using your palms and fingers.

5. Low maintenance

Some boys are just too active especially during summer that they always end up with messy and wet hair from the sweat. If you want your child to still look neat even after a full day of playing in your backyard, you can try this particular hairstyle. Just tell your barber to keep your child’s hair as thin and short as possible. No styling needed.
