Back-To-School Hairstyles For Kids

It’s back-to-school time!  Hopefully you finished your clothes and school supplies shopping last weekend during the Missouri Sales Tax Holiday, but now there’s just one more weekend left for back-to-school haircuts.  There are several great options in town, including JCPenney Salon and Sweet & Sassy.  JCPenney Salon is offering free kids (K-6th) haircuts during the month of August.  Call 855-JCP-KIDS to make an appointment while they last!  Locations are at Mid Rivers Mall, St. Clair Square, South County Center and West County Center.  At Sweet & Sassy, located exclusively at West County Center, haircuts for toddles age four and under are $14.95.  Girls age five and up are $19.95 ($24.95 with a shampoo) and boys are $14.95.  Click here for a $3 off any salon service coupon (offer ends 8/31/2012).   Appointments are recommended.

The two main trends in girls hairstyles are either a short bob or long in one-length meant to kept in a ponytail or braid.  Your girl’s hairstyle should be easy.  Be sure to keep her hobbies in mind and the style does not interfere in sports or other activities.  Suri Cruise is the most famous little girl today, and she has the long style.  While I don’t know all of her activities, she’s been photographed in ballet attire, which makes this style a good fit for the “pulled back and up” looks for dancing class and recitals.



For boys, short hair length is obviously the easiest option, however short hairstyles do need a lot more care and require regular upkeep.  Short haircuts are a more athletic look for boys.  You can add some hair product to the short haircut, but keep in mind that less is more.  Medium length hairstyles are also very popular among boys and can be shaped in different ways and styles, and with or without product.  CJ Adams, the star of “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” which opens this weekend, has a medium style with no product.  The medium length offers a more trend look for boys.

Which styles do you choose for your kids?
