Toddler hair styling ideas?

My dd (18 mos) has hair just too short to tuck behind her ears and it is in her face all the time. Shes pulls out hair clips and we are afraid the she could swallow them. Any ideas for what to do while her hair is growing and she is maturing. I don't want to cut her hair.

  • You can use mouse or gel to keep it back.

  • the little tiny rubber bands. You can get like 50 of them at wal-mart for 1.99. You pull it back on the side and then pull the band doen slightly. Separate the hair above the band by the scalp and tuck the loose hair in. Then tighten the band up to make a 'topsy tail look. These are harder to take out plus the band are so small they would not be much of a hazard. I will try to find a pick of my DD hair like this. You may need to do this a few times for just a few min each time and really stay on top of her not touching it. She will earn if you stick with it!

  • my dd's hair is super curly and always in her face. I part the hair and pull some back to make pig tails, but the hair in the back i leave so it's curly. it's shows off her curls, but it's out of her face =] it's a mess in this pic, but u get the idea =P
