Without a doubt, boys and girls are getting their fashion vibe on this summer from head to toe. Traditional pigtails are not the only easy to manage and cool hair-do around anymore. These days, thanks to Pinterest, the arbiter of all things trending, moms find easy kids’ hairstyles that will make their children feel like a princess or prince.
Girls with long hair are showing up with braided ponytails, twisted ponytails, French ponytails on the side, and braided double ponytails. All moms know that these easy kids’ braid hairstyles stay beautiful for a few days, making vacation days a bit more relaxing.
Boy’s hairstyles are modern, different, and easy to keep neat. The short side cut with long hair on top that sweeps into a wave-like sculpture is huge for boys these days. Some tweens are going for the asymmetrical cut that has long bangs swept to one side and a buzz-cut on the other side.
Girls with shorter hair are wearing the old standby, the Pixie. The closer to the head cut is shaggy and often spiked. Another version of the Pixie for young girls is smoother but layered. Girls of color have taken to wearing their hair natural, and many girls are using wash-out neon colors in parts of their hair.

The idea is to work with your child to come up with a style you both love and of which they approve. You may even have ideas that other people have never thought of before. You and your kids can have fun together deciding on which of the hairstyles will work best.
