Toddler Hairstyles, A Side Ponytail

Cute hairstyle for babies and toddlers - A side ponytail with "connectors."

holiday hairstyles for babiesMany of you have been asking for more toddler and baby hair style ideas. You're in luck! We'll be posting a couple of toddler holiday hairdos this week.... just for you!

We're starting with this fun side ponytail style. Of course, being under 2 yrs old "The Pea's" hair isn't anywhere near long enough to wrap all the way around her head into a side pony. So, I have split the hair into sections. If the hair you are working with is long enough to get into a little ponytail, you are good to go! This technique of "connecting" the ponytails together works great for many styles when working with short and/or fine hair.

cute hairstyles for a babyI started on the side of her head where I had parted her hair on top (the left) and worked my way over to the right. To keep the flyaways down, I recommend using water to wet each section as you're going. And if the hair you are working with is extra fine, a tiny bit of pomade works wonders.

christmas hairstyle for babyI think this would be a cute hairstyle for the upcoming holidays (or really any time.) If you wanted to make a halo or Christmas wreath out of her hair, you could bring the connecting ponytails all the way around her head. That would be adorable!

  2. I just did this on my 2yo daughter and I loved that it was so quick and easy to do on her. I've done a few others as well and turned out pretty good for a first attempt I've never been one to be fussy with doing anything with my own hair but when I had my daughter I wasn't sure how to I'm sure glad I found this site keep it up. Happy Easter to you your 'Princess" and little 'Pea"
