11 Easy Braid Tutorials That'll Give Your Kid A Cool Back To School 'Do


With the back to school season in full swing, making sure your kids are ready for the first day is of the utmost importance. And, because waking up in the morning and getting out the door on time may be an issue, finding a way to get them excited about heading to school could make all the difference. When I was a kid, having a new hair do to show off occasionally gave me an added incentive to get to school. Since things never really change, it's important to have some easy braid tutorials in your back pocket that will make your kid's 'do the talk of the hallways

Even as an adult, I find it exciting to get my hair done in braids. Wearing braids affords me so many other options of hairstyles that I wouldn't normally have with my hair. And for children, sporting braids can help make the process of getting ready in the morning a little more fun. Even if it takes a little longer, the confidence that a nice and cute hairstyle gives a young girl is totally worth it. (Not to mention, braids can worn a few days in a row, saving you some time during the week.)
