Simple School Hairstyles for Girls

1. Fishtail

The first time you try this, it would take you quite some time. It’s fairly easy and quick to do once you have enough practice.

So, make it a mother-daughter bonding on the weekends. Even just for 30 minutes a time would make a difference.

Soon enough, you’d be a fishtail master and it won’t even take you 3 minutes to do it when during a morning rush!

2. Side French Twist

French braids are easy but it’s getting boring. Spice it up by doing a side twist. Simply drag the direction of your braid to whichever side you prefer.

Just make sure you comb the side properly before you continue braiding.

3. Braided Head Band

This may be one of the easiest yet very feminine hairstyles for school girls. I’m in my mid-20s and I still wear my hair like this at times! It keeps all the annoying fringe away from your eyes and gives you a very ladylike look at the same time! Dual-purpose!

4. Double-Flip Accents

What you need is simply a topsy tail tool. It’s the hair tool that has a big loose round tip that allows you to flip a section of hair over. Do this in sections to achieve the look.

Hairstyles for school girls that are of this nature is perfect for girls with wavy hair.

5. Lace Braid

Doesn’t that look elegant? If your girls are the really girly type, they would love this style. Important tip: make sure you thoroughly brush the hair to get a smooth finish.

Have different colored bows in stock so you can change the color from time to time!

6. Chain Link Braid

Now that I’m looking at it more, it does look like a chain of braids. The accents on top of the head are so nice!

I can’t imagine that this hairstyle takes less than 7 minutes to complete. Give it a try and see how quickly you can achieve this!

7. French Back Round Braid

According to the tutorial, this braid will give off a 3D effect. Now, I personally have not tried this but I will make sure to do so.

It does seem like a 3-dimensional braid if you look at it from all sides. Think this can be one of the hairstyles for school girls you can pull off?

8. Double Lace Twist
