Toddler Haircuts for Girls

Updated April 17, 2017

Choosing a haircut for your toddler depends on her type of hair. Thick and frizzy hair can be styled really cute, but can be much harder to manage than fine, straight hair. Find a style that suits your child's needs and shows off her pretty little face and young features.

Bob Hairstyle

Chin-length bobs on toddlers look adorable. This hairstyle helps bring out little girls' facial features. The hair should all be cut one length along the jaw line. You can choose a bob hairstyle with our without fringe.

Long, Curly Hairstyle

If your child has curly hair, allow her hair to grow long. The long, beautiful locks can be styled in many different ways, such as with a headband or up in a half-ponytail. Longer hair is harder to maintain than short hair, but you can always braid her hair or put it up in a ponytail if you are in a rush. To keep the hair from frizzing, make sure you use a gentle conditioner that is safe for children to keep your child's hair hydrated.

Neck-Length Haircut

Toddlers often have fine hair that tends to curl. Neck-length haircuts can accentuate the curl while keeping it at a manageable length. The back and sides of the hair are slightly layered to frame the toddler's face. This is also a great haircut for little girls with straight hair.

Short Curly Hair

If your child has thick, curly hair, a short haircut above the shoulders will look great. The hair can be layered to thin out the thickness. There are a lot of adorable options for short, curly hair, such as using a headband or braiding her hair. You can also use barrettes and hair clips to keep the hair out of your child's face.
