Criss Cross Braids, Toddler Hairstyles

Toddler And Baby Hairstyles
Simple And Quick Criss Cross Braids

cute toddler hairstylesOur Princess likes to call this hairstyle "criss cross applesauce."

This style could work with any hair type, texture, or length (short hair or long hair, curly or straight.) It's a good one for toddlers or babies who have very fine hair and is great for keeping bangs (or fringe) out of the eyes. We actually do this style quite often on our 9 year old Princess as well, so it doesn't have to be just for babies.

This is also a fantastic hair style for gymnastics, sports, and dance. You could make the criss cross braids and bring the rest of her hair back in a ponytail or bun if you wanted. Or, you could add more sections and braids all over her head to form a spiderweb effect.

We love the "lattice" look shown in the photo above with the extra ponytail added in the back. But if you prefer (or if you are working with super short hair that isn't going to make it into one more ponytail) you could leave that out to form one braided X as shown below.....

  2. Very cute! I've been doing little braids on my 11-month old but they just flop around and look unfinished. This will be a great way to complete it - if only she'll be still long enough!

    HI, IM SHAYLA!

    I think those hair styles are so precious. besides, moms can only dress and do their little ones ''up'' once in their life time. Until they're big enough to do it themselves.
    BEAUTIFUL!!!
