Children love to express themselves through their clothing and hairstyles. You may notice your child wants to wear interesting outfits to school, and they may
even have expressed the desire to start doing their hair on their own.
No matter what age the child is, expressing their individuality through their hair
is normal and healthy. We put together three easy styles for your child to try
on their hair, whether their hair is long, short, or in-between.
**Braids and Twists**
No matter what the hair type, braids look great on everyone! Even little boys ask
for braids or a single “jedi-braid” to show off on the playground.
Especially if your child has curly hair and has a hard time combing in the morning by themselves, teaching them how to do a simple braid the night before school can help them to have an effortless style ready for the next day.
We also offer styling and braiding services here at Cookie Cutters, so we can help you or your child achieve a certain look or hairstyle for any occasion. Our
stylists are happy to walk you through our process and offer helpful tips for
at-home styling. Some of our locations even offer braiding classes throughout
Hair colors are trending, and your child may be requesting crazy colors for their
hair even long after Halloween or Crazy Hair Day at school!
The good news is, if you feel comfortable with your child rocking a temporary
color, there are many safe products that offer results that are fully wash out
When selecting products, find out in advance how long the color will last. That way, you and your child both feel comfortable and can have fun with color when the time is right.
**Gel and Mousse**
There are endless possibilities when it comes to using gel or hair mousse! Gel and mousse can both have many different uses, including smoothing hair, maintaining curls or combed styling, and even taming fly-aways.
With some practice and the desire to learn, your child may be able to learn how to comb and use a small amount of product on their own hair. Show them how it’s done and offer them help or support until they get a hang of it.
Once they feel confident with their abilities, you’ll be effortlessly saving time
during busy mornings while empowering your child’s independence. Don’t worry – they will always still look to you for help on those bad hair days!
