Children look cute and put together when they have styled hair. There are many different ways Afro-American children can style their hair that is both fun and fashionable. Afro-American hairstyles are characterised by braids, hair puffs, curls and afros. Decorative accessories, such as colourful beads, add a fun look to the hair.


A fun way to style Afro-American children's hair is in a multitude of tiny braids, and the design options with this style are limitless. The hair is braided against the scalp in any chosen design. The hair is braided all the way down to the ends. The stylist decorates the ends of the hair with colourful beads, ribbons or elastics.

Hair Puffs

A cute way to style Afro American hair is in hair puffs. A stylist slicks the hair against the head and gathers it at the top in two different sections, forming high ponytails. She secures the hair and forms the loose ends into large puffs by combing the hair out briskly. The hair is also often gathered in one large puff at the top or side of the head. The stylist sometimes braids the hair against the scalp up to the hair puffs. Decorative hair accessories such as colourful elastics and ribbons surround the puffs for a cute style.


An afro hairstyle is characterised by puffy hair that is loose, forming a halo around the head. The hair is left either free-flowing or defined into many small, tight spiral curls. Decorative headbands push the hair back and hold it away from the face. An afro is worn either long or short. A short afro gives a refined look while a long, puffy afro gives a fun, untamed look. A stylist may add braids against the scalp on the side, in the front or both, leaving the rest of the hair to form an afro.
