Hairstyles for kids with thick hair

The trick to a good hair day is a style that is not only comfortable and practical for your kid's lifestyle, but one she feels good in and is a style that reflects her individuality and personality. Good hair helps children feel better throughout the day and in the long run. Achieving this is not easy, especially with a thick head of hair. Although having a full head of healthy hair is a great thing, you and your child may have difficulty finding the right styles. The best styles show off hair, not inhibit it, allowing you to care for hair in the process.


Nothing says youth and cute more than the classic double ponytails, also known as pigtails. Hair is parted down the centre of the scalp into two even ponytails and secured with a hair band, ribbons or braids. They can be worn high on the head or low, toward the nape of the neck, loosely held. They are low-maintenance and just about anyone can create this style, even the child. Braid the hair for a more controlled, classic look, or leave the strands loose and fluffy for a fun look. Either way, pigtails keep hair out of the face. If hair is frizzy around the hairline or the child has a lot of baby hairs, you can control them and create a smooth surface with a styling cream that is not too greasy or heavy. Use a moisturising curl enhancer on the loose strands, to fluff the hair or create springy curls.


This half ponytail, half loose look is feminine and suits formal or casual occasions well. It is especially flattering on girls with long, thick and extremely curly hair because it not only keeps hair out of their face, but shows off the locks beautifully, because they are loose and unrestricted. You can make the ponytail small or large. A small ponytail is located high on the head, above the crown, held in place with a barrette or hair band. A larger ponytail would take up half of the hair, from above the ears and backward. If she has fringe, just comb them back and work them into the high ponytail, disguising them. If they are too short, comb them back and hold them in place with a clip or hair clips or wear them out over the forehead. This style may require some smoothing products such as a cream or leave-in conditioner to enhance curls and tame flyaways.

Shaggy Look

For boys with thick hair, you are in luck. The shaggy look is in. You can get away with your son wearing his wavy or curly hair free and in longer lengths. The trick to pulling off this hair style without having your kid look neglected or unclean is a good haircut. The stylist needs to cut the hair according to his natural wave pattern, keeping it trimmed above the eyebrows, over the ears and around the nape, otherwise, hair just looks overgrown. With a good cut, little product is needed. Only use products that will enhance hair's health, such as moisturising cremes and pomades. Do not use stiff hairsprays and gels, as this will create a stiff and high maintenance look, which is not condusive to boys' lifestyles.
