These are our Top 5 Little Black Girl Hairstyles for the summer. These styles are great because they don’t require daily combing, they are great for swimming, and the style can be easily changed to a different look if you choose.
1. Box Braids
Box braids are great because they can last all summer! You don’t have to worry about combing hair. These are perfect for swimming because you can wash them after pool time. If you like versatility in your style, these are perfect for you because you can change the look by putting them in a ponytail, bun, or even cornrow them! You can see Brown Girl getting them HERE!
Braids can last from 6-8 weeks depending on the size and style. They are also great for swimming and don’t require any combing or styling. If you know how to cornrow, you can follow this easy braids hairstyle tutorial and this 4 in one tutorial to have your girls hair braided in no time!
Cornrows are quick and easy to do! If you child’s hair has to be washed frequently, cornrows are a great option because they can be taken down quickly for wash day. They don’t take long to do over! Depending on the size of cornrows and if hair is added, they can last from 2 to 4 weeks. This quick and easy to follow cornrow tutorial will have you rowed up in no time!
If you haven’t quite mastered braiding, twist are the perfect option for you. Like box braids, this style can be changed up each day from a ponytail, flat twists, pinned up etc. I have several tutorials that will get you all set with perfect twists for the summer HERE and HERE. I even have a video HERE that shows you how to maintain them! Twists can last up to 4 weeks.
I’m sure this post will help you spend more of your summer having fun then worrying about hair!
Enjoy your summer! Happy Styling!
