Short Mixed Baby Girl Hairstyles

For a child, nothing’s as perfect as colorful short hair with box ties or buns interconnected with each other.

This can be your toddlers’ go-to as it takes away the strands from their faces to prevent pain from hair-poking or clear the way for a hairless playtime.

1-Year-Old Mixed Baby Girls Hairstyles

A 1-year-old girl would love a middle part hairstyle with several sections, all linked by single french braids.

Braiding like this is essential for a child’s curly hair as it can protect their fibers by locking in moisture.

Another cute hairstyle for your kids’ special event is a high ponytail with braids.

This style is easy to do and highlights your little one’s look, adding to their happy-go-lucky personality. For this style, all you need are brushes and ties!

Infant Bicultural Baby Girls Hairstyles

Infants’ short hair often gets in the way of their vision, which means this bun-and-clip hairstyle can help them out.

All you have to do is part in the middle, take two tiny portions for the buns, and bind it with your kids’ favorite clip.

Curly Hair Baby Girls Hairstyles

Afro curls are naturally beautiful, more so if it’s in a three-small-knots side-part styling. For your child to sport this hairstyle, make a semi-circle on the middle left head side by combing and separating it.

Then, create three tiny knots, secure them with ties and clips, and let your baby’s curly hair flaunt in style!

Bicultural Baby Hairstyles With Beads

Beads in the head have the power to keep your kids excited for an adorable hairstyle. You can add beads on box braids with middle partings.

In the picture, the girl has several braids sections, and five colored beads are added at the tip to keep them intact and in style.

Mixed Girl Baby Birthday Hairstyles

For a toddler’s birthday, put balloon-inspired ties on lovely braids!

To keep it festive, you can intertwine several sections of the child’s hair using colored rubber bands.

Adorable Two Buns for Baby’s Hair

One bun hairstyle isn’t enough for a special event, so twin buns for your children’s natural curls are to the rescue!

To make it more charming, put zigzag braids in the front and back that connect to each bun before sealing them with soft-cloth ties.

One Braid Baby Girl Easy Hairstyle

You can never go wrong with one-side braiding if you’re in a rush and need to do a hairstyle that’s both presentable and easy to recreate.

To do this, part their hair (straight or curly), intertwine the side, and then secure the style in a low pony with a pretty bow that matches her outfit.

High Ponytails for Little One’s Hair

Make your lasses walk confidently in style by making her an Ariana Grande go-to look — a high ponytail!

Moreover, you can even style the loose long straight hair in waves to create volume and texture for your princess.

Bantu Knot Baby Hairstyles

Bantu curly knots are from the Zulu people of South Africa, and it’s not just culturally significant but also eye-catching for your girlies.

Doing this entails patience as you need to section several curls, twist them, and wrap them in spirals. Your kids can wear this with beads, too! 

The only difference between this and the previous beaded style is the way the strands are tied, with this being on the shorter side.

Tie and Clip Biracial Baby Hairstyles

A usual mixed preschooler’s style, regardless of a straight or curly strand, is parting the hair, tying the roots in two sections, twisting, and clipping the ends with cute bows!

Ringlet Curls Baby Hairstyles

Ringlets complement little girls and boys with curly hair as it recreates an adult version of an Afro.

Aside from that, it’s easy to do; you must comb and twist the hair in coils. You can also add a cherry on top in the form of crossbow clips!
