Looking for cute braids for kids hair styles?

This adorable little cornrows styles incorporates cornrows and two strand twists to form a stylish pompadour, protective hair style.

The best thing about hairstyles with braids is that they give your hair a chance to rest from daily styling.

I hope you enjoy this tutorial!

A pretty updo for a pretty girl!


For styling the hair you’ll need:

Products used:

As always, I started with clean, detangled, stretched hair.

She got so many compliments! =D

Bunny wanted a pompadour hairstyle for her regional competition this past weekend. She asked for it to pull all of her hair back and away from her face.

This is the style that I came up with! It makes a fantastic kiddie style while being cute as well.

Who says protective styling has to be boring??!!

Detailed Braids for Kids Step By Step Instructions:

  • The first thing I did was part B’s hair in half, slightly off centered. I did this because I didn’t want the “pompadour” part to sit directly on top of her head, but be slightly aligned.
  • Next, I clipped the side with less hair out of the way and began cornrowing the thicker side of hair. I cornrowed until I ran out of room to make the braids stick to her head, and then I two strand twisted her hair all the way to the end. I switched from braiding to twisting because twists tend to give more volume than braids do.
  • Once I was done with one side, I did the exact same thing on the other side. I personally don’t like to match sides because, like many artists, I struggle with recreating a piece of work all over again. However, matching the sides is completely up to you, although I choose not to.
  • Once both sides were braided and twisted, I Dutch braided all the twists up to the top of her head and pinned it.
  • Finally, I added a bright yellow flower and called it a day. And that’s it!
