Back to school is an exciting time for the entire family. The kids are excited for another year with new adventures, and most parents are just happy to get back into a normal routine. When it comes to getting back on that routine, hammering down a few of the top curly kids hairstyles for back to school will make things a little easier. Here are a few that are perfect for a new year of learning!
1. Halo Braid
When choosing back to school styles, a protective updo is a great choice. This will give their curls the protection you need during sports or play time to make sure it won’t take on damage. This look is easy to do and perfect for the first day of a new school year. Find out more here.
2. Braid Ponytail
This look is another great updo for a protective approach. It has stylish braids in smaller sections on the crown and a longer braid that hangs down. This look is perfect for the girly-girl that likes to have a ponytail, but still protective enough to keep strands safe. See for yourself here.
