8 Natural Hairstyles For Back To School

It’s that time of year again, BACK TO SCHOOL! No more late nights and mornings. No more asking for a snack 15 times a day. We finally get to return our children to the Land of Learning, and our refrigerators will soon thank us.

Back to school also means back to school hairstyles. I usually keep it simple when it comes to my girl’s hair. I shampoo it every two weeks (or once a month depending on the child). I then put it in A LOT of two strand twists, and that lasts for 2-3 weeks, once again depending on the child. I wanted to try something different this year though. Per usual, I went to Youtube for my inspiration. I’m happy to say, I wasn’t disappointed and I can’t wait to try these styles this year.

If it isn’t obvious, I love a good twist/twistout. They’re easy to do, and they don’t take long. When dealing with tiny humans, it’s best to pick hairstyles that don’t take hours to do. You can click here for Youtube channels that specialize in natural kid’s hair care.
