Cute hairstyle for babies and toddlers - A side ponytail with "connectors."
Many 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.
I 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.
When I was adding the hair in for the last ponytail (on the right side) some of the hair from the front was not quite long enough to reach the elastic, so we added a cute little clip to help hold everything in.
We used 4 elastics total. You may need to use a few more if the hair you are working with is super short.
I 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!
