A cute and easy hairstyle for girls of all ages.
This style uses tiny rubber bands to form what we call an "elastic braid" or "puff braid." This isn't rocket science, but very quick and fun. I try to keep things fairly uncomplicated and simple while working with toddler hair. (Btw, she is 2 yrs old in case you are wondering.)
This would be a great style for dance, gymnastics, cheer leading, and other sports (as the elastics help to keep the style in place.) If your daughter has a cute short haircut, but wants to put her hair up in a ponytail, pigtails, or bun... adding some sort of elastic design first will really help you.
I have mentioned this before, but our "little Pea" has some shorter pieces of hair on the top of her head. Adding tiny ponytails (or connectors/netting/puff braids) work well to keep these stray hairs in the style and out of her face. If you are trying to grow out your bangs (or fringe) this technique might work for you as well.
One major advantage those of you with short hair have, is how easy it is to make a messy bun with your hair. Making a messy bun on "The Princess" or long hair, can be quite a task sometimes. "Our Pea" has the perfect length and hair texture for the quick and easy bun shown in our video.

Of course, if you are comfortable french braiding or dutch braiding, that is another option with this style. I find french braiding quite difficult on a squirmy toddler with super fine hair, but maybe that's just me!
