Looking for a stylish and easy natural hairstyle for your daughter? In this post, I have compiled a list of easy cornrow hairstyles that are appropriate for young girls in pre-school and grade school. 

These hairstyles are easy enough to do at home if you have some basic braiding skills. If you don’t know how to braid well, you can get the help of a hairstylist. But before we get to the hairstyle recommendations, I’d first like to answer some frequently asked questions relating to braiding young children’s hair. 

How do I find a hairstylist that does children’s hair in my area?

To find the best hairstylist for your child’s hair, I recommend searching for a hairstylist in your city on Instagram or ask other parents for referrals. After calling up a few and inquiring about their rates, you can then try them out to see who is the best hairstylist for your kids.

How do I maintain my daughters’ hair while in cornrows?

To increase the longevity of your daughter’s hairstyle while also maintaining her natural hair, it’s important to have a basic hair routine that is easy for the both of you to follow on a daily basis. This includes making sure she wears a shower cap when she showers in the morning.

To moisturize her hair during the week, simply spray it with one of these leave-in conditioner sprays or use your own DIY leave-in spritz. To keep her scalp moisturized, use an anti-itch scalp oil that will keep her roots fresh and supple. 

Finally, when she goes to bed at night, be sure she wears a satin bonnet so that her hair is kept in place while she’s sleeps. You can also use a satin pillowcase, in case the bonnet comes off at night. 

How long can these hairstyles last?

I have included an estimated length of days or weeks each hairstyle should last for. Please note that you can take your child’s hairstyle down at any point in time. This means that you can take them out before or after the estimated time. 

You will also notice that I underestimated the length of time each hairstyle should last for. This is mainly because children’s hair gets frizzy much sooner than adults’ hair because kids have a more active lifestyle than adults. Between playing games, running around, extracurricular activities, and being mischievous, most children are too busy being a child and can’t be bothered with how their hair looks. 

Also, kids grow fast biologically, which means that you won’t always have the opportunity to do cute hairstyles on your kids. Very soon, your child will turn 13 and she will not be interested in doing childish hairstyles anymore. So it’s best to take advantage of the time you have right now, by playing around with as many kid-friendly hairstyles as you can and while you can.
