I LOVE me some Afro Puffs. On girls, women and even guys and I even had my daughter rock them when she was little. They are easy to install, cute as hell and a highly functioning back to school hairstyle for your little natural lovely.  You can either use her own hair or add pieces to her hair to give her puffs volume too.

Yes, the are even a lasting style if you know how to care for your darling’s hair at night. First off, don’t make them too tight as that can create a negative response from your daughter and can cause too much tension on her edges. Secondly, simply place the puffs in twists the night before (spray each puff lightly with water and some leave-in to keep hair moist), and cover with a satin or silk scarf to keep hair need and protected.

Another way to keep the style for a few days is to incorporate the puffs with some cornrows like in the pic above.  Now, knowing how to cornrow is needed and you can either do it yourself or have someone do it for you like a friend or hairstylist. Low on funds? Hit up a beauty school as they do hairstyles on discounted rates.  You can also find even more back to school hairstyles from the school so remember to always ask!

Time to check out this slightly older but very relevant video by Vicariously Me that will guide you step by step into one of the best uniquely beautiful back to school hairstyles for 2018. This is a great natural hairstyle for your darling.

High Puff / High Bun

A closely related natural hairstyle to Afro Puffs is the classic high puff.  A classier take on the single ponytail, the high puff is an adorable back to school hairstyle for natural hair little girls because it is quick if you are in a hurry.  Hair is collected all together into one high puff and hair can be added for volume or protection.

Just as you need to ensure the hair is not too tight in puffs, you will need to do the same with the high puff.  I would advise gelling hair down to death as some loose hairs are adorable and you should be using gels without alcohol so to not damage her hair.  Also, no rubber bands unless plastic ones!  There are also ouchless hair ties that work better and will decrease the chance of pulling hairs out when removing the buns.

The more intricate the style the more it will last and for many mamas, that’s the way to go.  The high puff and/or bun is a cute style for any age and that even includes preschool.  Care for hair at night is pretty similar and if hair is completely destroyed, redo but if not, simply cover at bedtime.  Don’t forget to use plastic bands instead of regular rubberbands.

Frohawk

Frohawk is simply a mohawk with natural hair.  This style is a classic natural hairstyle that has morphed into several variations so that every natural can partake.  It can be used on braids, on curls on a fro and even relaxed hair and this style is forever being challenged by one’s own creativity.

From toddler to college aged, this style works on any age.  The number of rows is also up to the one doing the hair, so opt on how long your little one will sit still for the style.  Yes, in these pics you see precision parts but stress less on perfection and more on creativity as this style is not about looking like everyone else.

Another style that is protective and long lasting,, the frohawk is an excellent back to school hairstyle for natural hair darlings because it is just so darned cute!  It can be created on short or long hair and every texture available.  No one is limited in this look because there is no hard rules on how to rock it. Also, you can add hair, if you want, and you can leave hair curly, twisted, loose or even bunned. In love with this look and want some help? Check out the video below by @iamawog

As always, you can give natural hairstyle some longevity by caring for the style at night by wearing a satin bonnet or a silk or satin scarf.  A light gelling of the edges on 2nd or 3rd day may aid in keeping the look fresh but remember, this is not supposed to be a masterpiece, but a functioning hairstyles for your cutie.


Braids & Twists

Here we step into the vast world of back to school hairstyles for the braid and twists lovers in the group. From Ghana to crochet to box, braids and twists are big for women and little girls and the styles are endless for both.  Whether you create these styles from added hair or with her own hair, each style is unique, beautiful and long lasting.

You learn something new everyday and I’ve learned that you can use rubber bands in the hair if you use the plastic ones over the regular ones. Here’s a super easy to follow video on getting your darling ready for school with rubberband box braids. The rubberbrand method “allows you to have that tight neat look and while you are braiding you don’t have to worry about other sections getting in your way and messing up your parts.”

How to Remove:

  “To remove the rubberbands without the risk of damage lift the rubberband up with a bobby pin or the end of a rat tail comb, then take some scissors and cut the rubberband off. Take your time throughout the removal process and do it on a day where you don’t have to rush.”

Please know that traditional braiding styles for your back to school hairstyles are always popular and acceptable for back to school, especially with the younger ones. Never feel you must conform to new back to school hairstyles if you are not ready for them or feel they are not right for your child. They will never go out of style and these hairstyles are long lasting and only need a satin or silk scarf at night to protect hair from frizzing up or unraveling.

All types of braiding and twisting styles are popular for back to school hairstyles for little ones but we must discuss the super popular Fulani braids that many often call the Alicia Keys braids.
