Thinking of a beautiful and cute hairstyle for your daughter this holiday season? In this post, I’ve done all the research to put together a list of 10-holiday hairstyles for your daughter’s natural hair. This list has a few ideas for kids under 12 years old with different hair textures, length and temperament level.
As always, you want to make sure that you’re gentle when styling your daughter’s hair and always apply a leave-in conditioner such as the cantu kids leave-in conditioner for kids before styling her hair.

10 Holiday Hairstyles for Natural Hair Kids
1. Braided Buns
For this hairstyle, you will need to section her hair into four sections. Then, part a small bit from each section to braid the tiny cornrows in between each section. Then, braid each section and if she has long hair, you can just use her hair or hair extensions such as xPressions or any kanekalon hair. Add some hair jewelries and define the edge with an edge control gel.
Products Used: xpressions hair extensions, hair rings, styling gel, edge control gel with an edge control brush.

2. Hot cross buns
This hairstyle is perfect for little girls who can’t sit for up to an hour to get their hair done. You can add some hair jewelries or flowers to this hairstyle to make it look fancier. Hair extensions such as Marley hair can also be added to each bun to give the style more volume.
3. Twisted Quadrants
This hairstyle is perfect for tender-headed kids because it doesn’t require much tension. It’s also a great hairstyle for kids with type 3 or 4a hair whose hair might not hold braids long enough. For this hairstyle, you only need a styling cream or alcohol-free hair gel such as eco styler to do this hairstyle. Then add hair beads of your choice. You can then add a cute headband to match your daughter’s outfit!
4. Chunky cornrows and buns
The strings on the cornrows at the back were added after the hair had already been braided. For the buns, kanekalon hair was added to add some volume. Please note that this hairstyle might be a bit heavy for your daughter, so you can take down the hair extension piece at the end of the night and add it back on the next morning. To protect the hair at night, wrap the hair with a silk or satin scarf and cover with a satin bonnet at night so that the hair is kept smooth.
Products Used: kanekalon hair extensions, leave-in conditioner, hair gel, hair jewelry and colored strings.
