Trendy Hairstyles for Kids

The perfect trendy hairstyle for your kid depends greatly on the child's activity level, age and personality. If your little girl loves sports and the outdoors, a super-trendy short or medium cut may get in her face while playing. Likewise, if your little boy has feminine facial features you may want to stray from longer 'dos, unless you don't mind strangers mistakenly calling him "she." The perfect trendy haircut for a child combines fashion with function, and usually requires little daily styling.

Short Hair for Girls

The bob is both an evergreen and adorable look on young girls, even toddlers. Bobs can be chin-length and angled with short layers in the back, or stretch as long as shoulder length with face-framing fringe or layers. Eye-length fringe can appear stunning on a young girl, accenting her delicate face. Another popular look among celebrities is for young girls to wear the same hairstyle as their mom. This "mini-me" effect can turn an ordinary haircut into a bonding experience between mother and daughter.

Medium to Long Hair for Girls

Medium and long girls' hair is popular for its versatility, especially when it comes to updos for formal events. Unfortunately, it can also get very tangled---so for very long hair, you may want to opt for layers to keep tangles at bay. Long, layered looks are especially good for girls with naturally curly hair, since short curls will often frizz out too much and be disproportionate to the face.


Spikes, streaks of colour and "mini-rockstar" styles are increasingly popular among young boys. With Mohawks and other spiked styles, make sure your child understands the time required to make the hairstyle "stand up" with gel. Since these spiky 'dos don't look so great in their relaxed state, your boy should be absolutely certain he wants this style before you run to get it cut. Another stylish option that requires little work is the "surfer" hairdo, popular with boy stars on Disney. This cut can be anywhere along the length spectrum and usually involves swooping fringe and layers.
