Easy-Back-To-School Hairstyles

It’s back to school season! With so many things to do on the busy mornings before class, it’s hard to find time to do your daughter’s hair. Here are some tips on maximizing your time while stylishly ensuring a comfortable but cute look for your child:

The braid halo is a very sweet hairdo, and super easy to do. Part hair in centre back. Start braiding 2 simple plaits at the back of the head and secure the ends with tiny invisible elastics. Bring them up around the head entwining the ends together as they meet in the front. Pin securly in place with bobby pins and U shaped fine fringe pins.

Perhaps the easiest and least time consuming is the Half Updo. This works quite well, because it provides a margin for being slightly messy while also having some form and style in the hair. Cutting bangs is an excellent way to keep hair out of our children’s eyes at school. Always so cute on any length.

The next super easy trick is to braid the hair after washing it the night before school. After you unwind the hair in the morning, you’ll have beautifully pressed waves! Little girls adore this style.

Don’t forget hair condition is very important. Always use a conditioner on your childs hair especially if its long. The Iles Formula conditioner is perfect for children’s hair since it instantly detangles, knots and tangles immediatly slide away. This will help strengthen your child’s hair, prevent against split ends and breakage while leaving the hair feeling silky smooth for the duration of the school day.

On a daily basis the Iles Formula finishing serum can be applied to dry hair. This formula is a cocktail of  vitamins and virgin raw ingredients especially chosen for excellence in hair care performance. It will protect your child’s hair from harsh sunlight, heated tools and also it helps to seal down split ends.

Here are a few inspirational hairdo’s found on some of our favorite celebrity children:

Topknot loved by North West and Harper Beckham… Choose your hair bands well. Don’t use  rubber bands, as they will break your child’s hair; use elastic that is coated with fabric.

Harper Beckham’s plaits with ribbon or try gigantic ribbons on the ends. A great trick to secure the ends of braids is to use the small elastic bands one has on their teeth with braces …They are an invisible colour and very tiny, making them perfect for the few little ends at the bottom of plaits. The side ribbon can be tied onto a hair pin to secure it in place. I always think home tied ribbons are much more attractive than the commercial ones already made up.


Just love this rather 60’s inspired “Do” with its little bit of volume on crown area. No doubt about Victoria Beckham as a Mum, she knows what works with the right overcoat!


This is a photo of Beattie my daughter dressed to the nines in Grandma’s jewels and ballerina costume. She is all grown up now, but when she was young I loved playing with her hair and especially ribbons. Plaits were my favorite on her. She became quite known for her little english hairdo’s in the French school she attended. Most French children have short cuts, a favorite being the one length bob, so she’s one of few with long hair.
