This article will focus on cornrow styles for toddlers, from which you can choose the style you think will look good on your toddler.
Cornrow styles for toddlers
Below are elegant cornrow styles you can try on your toddler.
- Cornrow with pigtails
This cornrow style will look cute on your toddler. It starts as if dividing the hair into two at the centre, giving it a two focal point. One side begins in cornrows and forms into a pigtail at the top of the head. The other forms a pigtail behind. You should go for this style of cornrows if your little girl has thick hair that is hard to pack into a single ponytail. Or if she has the kind of hair that doesn’t flow in the same direction.
2. Cornrows with a side pony and beaded ends
This style isn’t as complicated as the name sounds. Have the cornrows flow in one direction, either to the left or to the right. This style is especially recommended if you’re looking to keep things tidy and comfortable for your baby girl. The pony doesn’t come down to her face, so she can freely move her head without having the hair all over her face. Decorate the end of the pony with multicoloured beads to bring style and colour to these cornrows.
3. Cornrow butterflies
If you’re the one plaiting the hair you might have to consider getting a real stylist for this one. Unless of course, you think you can do it, then go for it. This cornrow style is a bit complicated, but if you can get right it will look stunning on your baby girl. It is essentially an art, but this time you use the cornrows to make a butterfly pattern just above the ear, while the rest of the hair converge in a line across her head.
4. Half cornrows
Half cornrows usually don’t need the whole head. This especially great if you’re looking to remain stylish while making sure the hair doesn’t come down to your baby girl’s face. This style allows you to divide the hair into two. Plait the front side into horizontal cornrows and then let the back hair fall to the girl’s nape in coils.
5. Cornrow colour pops and box braids
This is especially popular in these parts for its simplicity and classy looks. These cornrows flow all back, not more than twelve rows, letting the ends fall to the girl’s shoulders neatly. What makes this look classy is the colours you inject into it. Little girls love their colours. In adding colours use chalk or spray. Under no circumstances should you use dye or any chemical on your toddler’s hair.
Avoid making the cornrows too tight. It can cause headaches for your little one. Also, thin cornrows take more time to plait and it can sometimes cause hair breakage. So go for bigger cornrows.
