16 Toddler Hairstyles That Are Easy and Adorable

These toddler hairstyles range from simple down styles to complex updos that can be done in two minutes or less.

Simple Bow

The Simple Bow style is an adorable, easy to do, down toddler hairstyle. Simply pin the hair back on one side using a bow and pin it in. It’s that simple; now you’re ready to go!

Half-Up Side Ponytail

Start this style off by wetting your toddler’s hair; this will make it easier to get all of their wispy hairs tied back so that you don’t miss any. Then, part the hair to one side. On the opposite side of your part, pull together the hair in the middle and then secure with an elastic band. A bow can be added to this look in front of the ponytail if so desired.

Topsy Turvy Half-Up Side Ponytail

Like the last toddler hairstyle, start this look off by parting the hair to one side and then pulling it together in the middle of the opposite side and secure with an elastic band. You will then take the hair from underneath the ponytail and feed it through itself.

Then, pull it out on the other end until the ponytail looks upside down. If this style is hard for you to do, there are also tools that can be bought on Amazon to help you with this one. A bow can be added to this toddler hairstyle as well if so desired.

Single Tie

If your toddler has trouble with their bangs being in their face all day, this toddler hairstyle is perfect for you. Start by taking a small amount of hair from the front and center of their forehead. Then, secure it off to the side with an elastic band. Add a bow to this look for another cute touch!

Double Tie

Like the last toddler hairstyle, start by taking a small amount of hair from the front and center of their forehead and secure it off to the side with an elastic band. Then, take another small piece of hair directly behind the first ponytail and combine the two ponytails with an elastic band. If you want to add your own touch to this look, add a bow of any color.

Triple Tie

Like the last toddler hairstyle, start by taking a small amount of hair from the front and center of their forehead and secure it off to the side with an elastic band. Then, take another small piece of hair directly behind the first ponytail and combine the two ponytails with an elastic band. Finally, take a THIRD section of hair behind the others and secure it to the other two using an elastic band. A bow can also be added to this toddler hairstyle if you would like.

Triple Combination

This is one of the toddler hairstyles that looks complicated but is actually pretty simple to do. Down the center of your toddler’s head, divide the hair into two square sections. Then secure each of the sections with an elastic band. Take a third section of hair just below the other two ponytails and pull them together. Finally, secure the three of them together with an elastic band and add a bow for a cute little touch.

Topsy Turvy Triple Combination

Like the previous toddler hairstyle, divide your toddler’s hair into two square sections down the middle of their head. Then, secure each of the sections with an elastic band. Take a third section of hair just below the other two ponytails and pull them together, securing them with an elastic band. Take the hair underneath from the last ponytail and pull it through itself. Like the Topsy Turvy Half-Up Ponytail, a cheap tool from Amazon can be used to assist with this hairstyle. Add a bow if you so desire.

Front Twist

Take a small amount of hair from the front of your toddler’s head and start twisting it. As you twist, continue to add hair to the side and back. Take a piece of hair that you will NOT use as part of the twist, and instead, use it as the anchor. Secure the twist and the piece of hair being used as an anchor together using an elastic band and then add a bow for a bonus touch.

Front Braid

For this toddler hairstyle, take a small section of hair from one side of the front of your toddler’s hair. Begin braiding the section and continue to the side and back while you continue to add hair, then secure with an elastic band. Like the others, a bow can be added to this look if you so please.

Half-Up Double Pigtails

For this look, part the hair down the middle of your toddler’s head and take a small section of hair from one side of their head and secure it with an elastic band. Then, take a larger section of hair from directly behind the first ponytail. This section should start down by the ear and end at the part down the middle. Secure the large section with the first ponytail using an elastic band. Then use the same steps for the other side of the part. Add a bow for a personal touch if you wish.

Full Triple Pig Tails

For this look, part the hair down the middle of your toddler’s head and take a small section of hair from one side of their head and secure it with an elastic band. Then, take a larger section of hair from directly behind the first ponytail. This section should start down by the ear and end at the part down the middle.

Secure the large section with the first ponytail using an elastic band. Then use the same steps for the other side of the part. To get the rest of the hair out of the way, part the hair down the middle for the rest of the hair. From one side of the part, take the remaining hair and secure it with the hair sticking out of the second ponytail. Do the same for the other side of the part.

Side Part Pigtails

Unlike typical pigtails, this toddler hairstyle contains a side part. Take the hair on one side of the part and put it into a ponytail, securing it with an elastic band. Then take the hair from the other side of the part and secure it into a ponytail with an elastic band. Don’t worry if there are bumps or wispy hairs that didn’t make it into either ponytail, as that is the intended aesthetic of this look.

Topsy Tail Pigtails

For this hairstyle, part your toddler’s hair down the middle. Like with a regular pigtail look, take both sides of the part and secure them into ponytails with elastic bands. Then, take each ponytail and twist them into messy buns and secure them with additional elastic bands or pins. If you want, add in a pair of matching bows.

Twistback Flip Under

Start by putting your child’s hair in a regular ponytail. Then, take the hair from underneath the ponytail and feed it through itself. You can use an inexpensive tool that can be found on Amazon to help with this look as well.

Toddler Rolled To Side Ponytail

This style is good for those with toddlers with little hair. Start by wetting your toddler’s hair, as this will help to secure all of their little baby hairs into the look then part their hair to one side. On the opposite side of the part, take a small piece of hair and begin to roll it towards the parted side.

As you roll, continue adding in hair to the roll until it is rolled completely to the opposite side, then secure with an elastic band. If your child desires, you can add in a bow for an additional touch.
