Want a refreshed look without letting go of those luscious long tresses? Opt for soft layers with a U cut and Birkin bangs grazing the eyes. Leave the tresses loose to sway with the wind or style them in a chic high ponytail or a bun. Your little one’s call!

2. Blunt Cut

Blunt haircuts just look adorable on young girls and can be achieved at home without much effort. Choose a length that suits you the most like a bob, lob, or shoulder-length tresses, and snip straight across. Avoid a boring look by pairing the style with a wispy fringe. Put on a hairband and voila!

3. Layered Curls

African-American little girls can show off their kinky afro curls in various waves. Try space buns, pineapple puffs, or braids instead. But if you have got bored of all that natural fluff, use a good curl-defining product and finger coil the strands tightly or loosely. You won’t regret it!

6. Wavy Lob

Referring to those with a wavy hair texture it would be unfair not to try a lob at least once. Chop off the locks to hang just above the shoulder with or without bangs and ask for subtle layering to create some movement. Simply stylish!

7. Braided Bun

Got a party coming at school? Try braided hairstyles for young girls. Steal the show by plaiting the top into French, Dutch, or fishtail braids. The remaining hair is secured in a high ponytail and knitted down before wrapping it around in a bun. Top off the style with a fancy frock to turn your girl into a princess!

8. Chic Top Knot
