Back To School: Quick Hairstyles Parents Can Do In Under 5 Minutes

Ahead of the new school year hair experts at Chris & Sons have put together the easiest hairstyles parents can do in under five minutes.

“The back-to-school hustle can be a chaotic time for parents and kids alike. Amidst shopping for supplies and adjusting to new routines, mornings can become a battleground when it comes to styling your child’s hair. But fear not! We’ve curated a list of the easiest and quickest hairstyles for parents to master, ensuring your little one steps into the school day looking effortlessly stylish,” says Andrew Vassiliou, director of Chris & Sons. 

The Classic Ponytail: The ponytail is a timeless go-to hairstyle that takes mere seconds to create. Gather your child’s hair at the desired height – high, mid, or low – and secure it with a hairband. For added flair, wrap a small section of hair around the hairband to conceal it.

Half-Up Half-Down Twist: Elevate the basic half-up half-down style by twisting a small section of hair from each side and securing them together at the back with a cute clip or pin. It’s a simple way to add a touch of elegance to your child’s look.

Quick and Chic Bun: A bun is perfect for busy mornings. Gather the hair into a high or low bun and secure it with a hair tie. Don’t worry about perfection – a slightly messy bun adds a trendy touch. Pull out a few strands to frame the face and voila!

The Braid Headband: Frame your child’s face with a braid headband. Simply braid a small section of hair on one side and secure it across the top of the head with a bobby pin. It’s an adorable and functional style that keeps hair out of their face.

Side Swept Curls: For a touch of whimsy, create loose curls using a curling iron or straightener. Sweep the curls to one side for an elegant look. This style is especially great for kids with longer hair.

Double Trouble Buns: Two buns are twice the fun! Part the hair down the middle and create two buns on either side of the head. It’s a playful and quirky look that’s bound to make your child stand out.

Effortless Waves: If your child has natural waves or curls, embrace them! Apply a little leave-in conditioner or curl-enhancing product and scrunch the hair with your hands. This low-maintenance style celebrates their natural beauty.

Pigtails with a Twist: Elevate classic pigtails by twisting each section of hair before securing them with hair ties. This subtle twist adds a touch of uniqueness to an otherwise simple style.
