Traditional poof will never go out of style. After all, we each had to wear them when we were little. This is because it is quick, simple and only requires a couple of items. You want to start with fully dry and detangled hair. Apply a light coating of moisturizer to make sure that the hair isn't brittle. Create a french braid starting from the hair line the extends to the crown of the head. Then, begin brushing the remaining hair in an upward motion towards the crown. Apply a generous amount of hair gel for smoothness. Once you have constructed the shape of your ponytail, gather all the hair into a firm elastic and secure! After this, you are done!

Pigtails are cute but they're even cuter when their pinned away to show off your beautiful face! This style is quick and fun for when you are taking your child to school or to an event. Start with dry, detangled hair and part it down the middle. Apply a thin coat of moisturizer to the hair to ensure hydration. 

Then, create two firm ponytails. Braid them to the ends but do not secure with an elastic. The ends are to be loose. Once you do this to both sides, take the loose ends of each pigtail and create a conjoined braid. Pin the pigtails to the back of the head using bobby pins.

The last style is customizable to the fullest extent. It's plain but pretty and works on literally everyone, not just kids! You want to begin with fully detangled hair and moisturize properly. This style is best done on stretched hair so as to achieve the biggest, fullest hair bun. However, it can be completed on shrunken naturally textured hair. Gather the hair into a high, slick ponytail by brushing and adding a holding agent such as gel, hair spray or pomade. Secure with an elastic. Then, taking the ponytail, split it into two sections and wrap them around the base and pin it to the scalp. You may add flowers or other hair accessories for adornment! Now, you are finished.

There you have it! These are your 4 fun kid's hairstyles for those girls in your life with natural hair. Of course you should never be afraid to get creative so you can venture outside of the box when grooming them! Although they are awesome hairdos for kids you can even attempt to create them with your own hair! Many of the looks that we see on younger females can be appropriated for us as grown women!
