Shine on

The holiday season is a great time to make your children’s hair shine. There are a few different ways to add a little more pizzazz to your kid’s holiday ensemble, so their look doesn’t get left in the cold. 

Bling strands are more than just pieces of hair tinsel. These cute sparkling tresses will add an interesting touch to their hair that sparks conversation. The strands can be coordinated perfectly with an outfit or added for a pop of contrasting color.

Glittery accessories or sparkle gel can also take a hairdo from bland to glam in minutes. Anything gold or silver will add some eye-catching shimmer. Also, don’t forget about Rose Gold! Dive into this new trend by adding clips, head bands, or hair pins in this endearing new color.

It’s all about the face

As a parent, you want to see those beautiful little faces during holiday events and pictures! Holiday hairstyles should always highlight the face with hair styled back (or up) off the face. Incorporate braids, headbands, or barrettes to achieve this cute look. ‘Tis the season to also wear a classic or messy bun. Both styles are always a great choice.

Cue the Curls

Curls add an extra special finishing touch to girl’s hairstyles that are left down. They also can last for days after. Incorporate a few spiral curls to make a look more formal for dressy affairs that require a more glamorous, put-together look. Not to mention, curls always look great in holiday photos.

Handsome for the holidays

For looks that stay put on your little man, use a pomade or a softer styling product for flexibility. With these, it’s easy to re-style the hair when removing hats/toques.

If you need a stronger hold, use a styling gel that is alcohol-free to avoid drying out the scalp and making a flakey mess.

Add temporary color spray or clipper art for a fun festive look. Little guys need to change their look from time to time, too! Try shaving a name initial or favorite sports logo for a cool look they will be proud of. They may not admit it, but they will love the extra attention.

Winter hair care tips for kids

Winter can be tough on hair and sensitive little scalps. Keep tangles, static, frizz, and excess breakage to a minimum using a conditioner after every shampoo. You can also treat your child to a deep conditioner or hair mask. Add a hot towel for better absorption.

Winter is prime time for static and frizzy fly-away hair. Use a spritz leave-in conditioner daily to detangle and repel static. You can also spray into toques/scarves (and even skirts) to eliminate static.
