Grab your brushes and bows, and use these creative hairstyles as an excuse to play with your little girl’s hair.
Tired of trying to tame the tangles in your little girl’s hair? Johnson’s newly reformulated No More Tangles line combined with these fun hairstyles may be your answer. Some extra tips from Johnson’s: When combing your toddler’s hair, try distracting her with a toy or game to help her cooperate. Use a wide-tooth comb and a detangling product, such as Johnson’s No More Tangles Detangling Spray. Compliment your toddler on her appearance and use positive reinforcement to help promote grooming routines. With proper hair care, you can help eliminate those tangles and make combing easy.

Two Ponytail Twist

- Repeat on the right side.
- Make a rope braid on each section, twisting all the way to the bottom.
- Secure each rope braid with a rubber band.
- Now you can add a bow at the beginning of each twist, and voilà!
The Bow Bun
- Pull the hair back into a ponytail and creating a loop using about half to three-quarters of the hair in the ponytail, leaving a long loose end.
- Tuck the loose end of the loop into the elastic to keep the loop in place.
- Divide the looped hair into two evenly distributed sections.
- Clip one loop off to the side using a bobby pin.
- Do the same with the other loop.
- Create the middle piece of the bow by pulling the loose end of the loop in front of the bow. Pull it back and through the middle of your bow sections.
- Tuck the end securely into the hair and use bobby pins to secure it.
- Fluff out the bow for a fuller look.
- Part hair down the middle.
- Begin at the temple and divide out a small section of hair.
- Divide that section of hair into two pieces.
- Take those two pieces and cross the bottom piece over the top piece.
- Add hair into bottom piece and cross it over the top piece.
- Continue adding hair and crossing it.
- Stop once you reach the nape of the neck.
- Make a rope braid with the remaining hair and secure the end with an elastic.
- Repeat on the opposite side.
- Wind each rope braid up into a loose bun and secure with bobby pins as needed.
- Add a bow for a finishing touch.
Messy Side Fishtail Braid
- Divide the hair into two large sections. Leave it messy for a relaxed look.
- Pull out a thin strand from the first section and pass it on to the second section, like cross stranding. The thinner your strand is, the better your fishtail is going to look.
- Pull out a thin strand from the second section and mix it with the first section, just how you did it before.
- Repeat the steps until you reach the very end.
