10 Holiday Hairstyles for Natural Hair Kids

  1. Braided Buns

For this hairstyle, you will need to section the 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 depending on your daughter’s hair, you can either use just her hair if she has long hair. If not, you can use hair extensions such as xpressions or any kanekalon hair. Add some hair jewelries and define the edge with an edge control.

Products Used: xpressions hair extensions, hair rings, styling gel, edge control gel with an edge control brush

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.
