2018 is the year we express ourselves and live life to the fullest. We want this for our kids as much as we do for ourselves. If you and your daughter love to channel your self-expression into your personal styles, here are some ideas that will get your creative juices flowing. All these hairdos are quick and easy to achieve, yet will put your style game on point every day of the new year.
Flower Headpieces Are Back!
If they’re good enough for the models on the runways of Dolce and Gabbana, they’re good enough for us and our daughters, right? Big, bold hairbands and headpieces are coming back. So if you agree that bigger is better when it comes to hair, jump on this trend, poof up your volume, and add some flare with the pink glitter bow and headband from our Disney Princess Mega Hair Accessories Set.
The Double Ponytail
Could the very cool and girl-power-positive Hasbro show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic have something to do with the long double-secured pony trend? We’d like to think so. All you need is long hair pulled back and secured with one pretty hair elastic right at the back of the head. Then, travel down the ponytail until you reach a bit below the halfway point and secure the whole ponytail again with another pretty elastic or hair ribbon.
Twin Face-Framing Barrette Clips
Mirroring your clipped-in hairstyle is in fashion right now. Two matching pretty clips holding back loose bits of hair on either side pairs quite well with just about anyone’s face shape. Bonus points in self-expression when the clips in question are the matching happy and laughing face emoji clips from our Emoji Ultimate Cosmetics Set. The possibilities for expressiveness are endless.
Rhinestones and glittery accents are all over the runways and the schoolyards for 2018. If your girl wants to get in on the trend, try a little shake-shake from one of the glitter pots that come with our Trolls Ultimate Glitter Set. Simply style as you wish (this works with a tight up-do, a ball of beautiful frizz, or long, loose locks) and spray a light mist of hairspray over the parts you want to shine. Then, quickly, before hairspray dries, sprinkle a tiny dusting of your chosen glitter over your locks. Your little star will be sparkly and on-trend in no time!
Extra Slick and Smooth Braids
Long hair pulled back into a smooth ponytail is going to be everywhere for 2018. Keep your daughter’s hair looking sleek and shiny with a shampoo that makes bath time fun again. Then blow dry if your daughter doesn’t mind. Air drying is fine otherwise. Teach her to brush her hair into a long, smooth style, and then secure at the base of the head with an elastic. Spritz with a kid-friendly hairspray, and you’re done!
