African American Kids Hairstyles


This Hairstyle website is dedicated to African American kids hairstyles – for tightly curled hair of every length and texture! And because these styles are just for kids – there will be lots of ribbons and headbands, beads and bows! Depending on the style, the suggested age will range from about five years to ten years, some styles may be a little younger while others perhaps a little older. I will try to post NEW African American Kids Hair Styles every week to ten days, but I am only one person and I only have two hands so please bear with me! Thanks! If you’re enjoying these African American Kids Hair Styles, please like the page here!

As a curly girl myself, I had a chance to explore and test many products for curly hair to help it restore it’s natural look. I prepared and reviewed some of my favorite products for natural curly hair. Make sure to check it, I think you will find it very useful.

Check out my styles and feel free to comment, copy, and share all you want! Happy hair doing!

 African American Kids Hairstyles:


Side iVersion Cornrows to Sistertwists

African American Kids Hairstyles was one of thee most viewed pages on this site of all time! That page has twenty different childrens hairstyles to jump to already, so I wasn’t going to add any more, however, seeing as this is a new year; I figured I would add just one more for old time sake! Cheers to the new year!


iVersion Cornrows with Box Braids Tutorial

As requested, a page on how to do iverson hair braiding styles (also called fishbone cornrows) plus lots of pictures of the process! For more ideas, make sure you check out our cornrow gallery! The trick behind these cornrows designs is to use a rat tail comb, take your time, and keep the hair as neat and sectioned as possible!


Half Cornrows to Box Braids Tutorial

I almost always love my Natural African American Hairstyles, but there is something about this one that I really love! For the past couple of weeks, I wanted to do a hairstyle with yellow beads. I didn’t matter whether it was braids or twists – I just wanted yellow beads and I FINALLY got the chance today!


Flower Girl Hairstyle Tutorial

I proudly present my first ever flower girl hairstyle! The lovely ladies at Diary of a Hair Princess were looking for a special updo that could be worn with halo and this is what I came up with. I think this is the first time that I have ever absolutely hated the finished look but Bunny likes it so we’re gonna keep it for a couple of days before changing the bun in the back.


Mini Buns & Box Braids Tutorial

Bunny surprised this morning by saying she wanted black and blue hair. I just looked at her and was like “O-K” until she clarified that she wanted lots of blue beads to match with her black hair. Yeah so that made a lot more sense. Here’s what I came up with.


Beaded Braided Mohawk Tutorial

Bunny wanted a braided Mohawk (it’s her favorite) for her Labor Day hairstyle and lots and lots of beads. We recently received several sets of SideWinder Hair Holders and today was the first day we got to try them out.


Curlformers & Half Cornrows Tutorial

I was asked to do a few short hairstyles for curly hair and this is the first one of three or four styles. Now, I did this on my younger sister’s hair, which is a bit on the long side, but this style will also work very well on short natural hair. This was the first time I used Curlformers and I LOVE the way this style turned out!


Twist Out Tutorial

There really aren’t that many African American kids hairstyles for weddings out there, so when my cousin’s wedding FINALLY rolled around, I had no idea of what I wanted to do with Bunny’s hair. We bounced around a few different ideas for weeks, everything from a braid out to a twist out to a Bantu knot out (there’s a lot of “outs”) to Curlformers. After talking about it for awhile, we decided on this!


Half Cornrows & Two Strand Twists Tutorial

Style Name: Hair styles long curly hair ‘do. I know that doesn’t make sense, but a nine year old named it so please bear that in mind. Anyway, at first I was going to do another braided Mohawk, then at the last minute, Bunny decided that she wanted side cornrows and two strand twists. I think this is her most favorite hairstyle yet.


Side Cornrows & Twist Out Tutorial

I think that the best hair styles for natural curly hair are the ones that are two in one. The kind that you can wear braided, then a braid or twist out a few days later. Natural hair is very fragile so less is more. The less you manipulate your hair the better.


Braid Out Tutorial

Braid outs make great hairstyles for natural curly hair. It helps further define each curly and can lasts for days! Unfortunately I messed mine up quite a bit. When done correctly, this makes a super cute style for anyone looking for cute African American kids hairstyles!


Breast Cancer Awareness Hairstyle Tutorial

This is my first breast cancer logo hairstyle of about three or four (maybe more, we’ll see). As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I really wanted to do hairstyles to honor that. Once I got the idea in my head, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get it out of my head! Please check out this ‘do and comment below! Thank you!


Bun Mohawk Tutorial

Wondering how to style curly hair when you only have twenty minutes for hair time? This bun Mohawk makes one of my favorite African American kids hairstyles yet! It all happened because Bunny’s freshly washed, conditioned, detangled, and stretched hair was starting to tangle up really badly and I really needed to tie it down somehow or another.


Cornrowed Dutch Braids Tutorial

Awesome medium curly hair styles anyone? I have been really wanting to do a cornrow hairstyle in Bunny’s hair for about a week or so now but between school and music and gymnastics several times I week I just didn’t have enough time until today. I got to use my Royal Curl Soothing Oil on her hair before I cornrowed it and I really liked it.


Crown Braided Cornrows Tutorial

These black hair styles photos (I know that’s not a real sentence but Bunny really likes to get involved with the website which includes the naming of the pages and she’s nine so yeah…) are of the pink styles I did in the month of October.


Ponytailed Curlformers Tutorial

I did this girly girl black hair style (that’s what she named it) because I really needed a hair style that pulled my little sister’s long, thick hair UP off of her shoulders and out of her eyes because she does gymnastics several times a week.


Cornrows, Beads, & Box Braids Tutorial

I did another hairstyle for thick curly hair last night. As you can clearly tell from the sloppy, crazy parts, I was a bit of a rush (I was tired and wanted to go to bed). Bunny and I took her mini braids out – she did most of the work 🙂 – and I am VERY glad to say that’s over. They lasted about twenty days before we both got sick of them.


Cornrows, Rope Twists, & Beads Tutorial

One of the coolest twist hairstyles for black hair, I did this hairstyle because I wanted something with lots of color. I will remember this hair style for the rest of my life, I promise you! While I was braiding and twisting Bunny’s hair, she sat there watching Monsters Vs. Aliens and smacked her gum so loudly!


Woven Box Braids & Cornrows Tutorial

I was asked by J.G. to do a hair style for a medium curly hair length little girl with lots and lots of shrinkage! This lady – J.G. – asked me to do a natural hair style that showed off some length, could last at least two to three weeks, and that could easily be maintained on a daily basis.

Edgy Rock Star Braided Mohawk Tutorial

I hadn’t done a braided Mohawk on Bunny in quite some time, so I wasn’t surprised at all that she asked for one the other night. Does anyone ever have those days/weeks/months when they just can’t do a pretty hair style anymore? I think I’m having one of those months because I’ve pretty much detested all my latest cornrows braids and cornrow styles.


Half Cornrows & Rope Twists

Can you do more African American kids hairstyles? And btw way, I am in LOVE with your website! There ain’t nothing else like it out there 😀 That’s a message that I got a few days ago. Aww, you guys are the greatest. Pictures of African American kids hairstyles coming right up! This page has pictures of kids hairstyles, natural hair tips, and more!


Half Cornrows & Two Strand Twists Tutorial

Lately I haven’t been too creative with my hairstyles for kids (sorry about that, sometimes I just don’t have time for amazing African American kids hairstyles or I’m just not creative). Anyway, so Bunny’s hair was all prepped for a hair style and I had no idea what to do with her hair. A little while later I was surfing the web when I stumbled onto this post on and fell in love with it!

Why Wear Braids Or Twists? Braids and twists can be worn for many reasons: to give your hair a rest from daily wear and tear, as a protective hair style or simply because you enjoy the beauty of the hairstyle. You Don’t Need To Care For Braided Hair! This statement is wrong. Although your hair is braided or twisted, there is still some care you must provide, such as washing and conditioning, which are always required to keep it healthy and strong. How Should I Care For My Childs African American Kids Hairstyles? I strongly recommend washing your braids with a mild shampoo while wearing a stocking cap to preserve your style! If you’d like to send in pictures of your cornrow styles to my site or show how my styles turned out for you, please comment. You can also suggest future African American Kids Hairstyles or just say “Hi” to all the other naturals!
