CHILDPROOF YOUR SUMMER STYLES\nOnce school is out and the summer period has truly begun; every parent is on the clock full time with the kids. This can leave us all with very little time. Suddenly nothing seems to last the day. Whether it’s wiping their faces clean, re-tying their shoelaces or changing their clothes that they get dirty.And there is one thing you can usually count on not looking the same halfway through the day. Yes, you guessed it! Their hair. You can easily spend twenty minutes in the morning meticulously grooming their mane. Only for it to be destroyed in twenty seconds when they practise their headstands on the sofa. However, with some strategically indestructible hairstyles up your sleeve, you can childproof your summer styles.\nTHE BUBBLE PIGTAIL BRAID\n \nThis style works great on relatively short hair and long hair alike. You don’t really need a lot of skill to achieve this look. It doesn’t involve any complicated braiding and is ideal to keep in all day. Great for keeping their way out of the way while still giving some movement.\nTHE 3D PULL THROUGH BRAID\n\nThe fantastic hairstyle was inspired by Australian hair braider; Shelley from Pretty Little Braids. Using nothing more than elastics, this show-stopping hairstyle is ideal for playdates and parties. Although this may take you a little while to put in, a little effort goes a long way.\nTHE PEEKABOO BRAID\n\n We can all remember having the side ponytail. Not as boring as the traditional back in one but just as easy to do. The Peekaboo braid just gives it that little bit of an edge and remakes a classic. It works great on any hair length and is suitable for all hair types. The braid peaks through underneath to give a simple style a striking look.\nTHE CROSSOVER LACE BRAID\n\n When the kids are on their summer break and you need to ensure indestructible hair; two french plaits are a parental favourite. The Crossover is another take on a classic which gives an unusual look to a usual style. It doesn’t take any longer to do and if you’re going out for the day and you want them to look smart, this hairstyle is ideal.\nTHE CROWN BRAID\n\n Often called the Crown or Halo Braid, this quick and easy updo will keep all their hair away. Ideal for very active days, messy days or even party days. Unlike some other styles, this won’t take long to do but still looks intricate. You can even add some accessories to jazz it up a little more.The summer break is a great time to learn new hairstyles for your little ones but not every hairstyle lasts all day. Our pick of indestructible styles will hopefully get them through any bike ride, beach trip or play-date the summer holidays can throw at you.
