natural hair style ideas for school

Now that summer is over and the kids are going back to school, some parents are pressed for time and do not have such an open schedule for hair anymore. Here are a few styles and tips for back to school.

One quick and simple way is letting them wear their hair out and just dress it up with accessories.
Headbands, barrettes or bows or even out by itself!

I'm pretty sure you all know how much I love protective styles. I know a few do not like to let their child wear their hair out because it becomes a tangled mess by the end of the day. A protective style during school is perfect because it requires less fuss and you can keep it in for days at a time. Even weeks if styles last long on your little one. My favorite types of protective styles are the ones where you can change it after a few days to give it a new look. One I personally love is mohawks! One day you can braid all the braids together like this:
You can portion a few into ponytails or even a braid out before you take it completely out! Possibilities are endless.
Hereis a post of a 4-in-1 style I did recently .Here is another link showing the style switched up many times. You can also add beads or barretes on the end if you dont mind. Check back in a few for some quick and easy styles we come up with!
