Hairstyles for a 2yr old girl's THIN hair?

She still has that very thin baby hair, about shoulder length. If we leave it down it just looks frizzy and messy. I usually do the typical pony or pigtails, but I'm looking for something different. Ideas??

  • Mayb get her hair trimmed that will get all the split and dead ends off plus help her hair grow. Also I would maybe do a braid? If you can't do that there's a simple hair style that you can do ... You'll need three pony tail holders , take a section like you would to put her hair half up and half down, next take a mid section prob at the round of the head and add the previous section to it, next take the last section and put it in a pony tail and your finish. Google is also a great source for new ideas

  • Just cut it short and put a little clip holding her bangs back.

  • I would cut it short. My stylist swears it will grow out thicker if you keep it well cut.

    Also, since it is so thin, the ponytail holders may be doing damage to it.

  • My Daughter is two & will NOT wear any clips in her hair so I just trimmed her hair in bangs & around her face so her hair does not get caught in her eyes. I wash it, towel dry it & it curls all at the bottom.

  • My 3 yo's hair is very thin too. Hers is all one length, parted on the side and I just got a bunch of cute clips/bows to pull it back to keep it out of her eyes.

  • I'd keep it cut on the short side. It helps it look fuller.
