Adding a giant bow on a small child is sure to turn up the cuteness meter. Try a premade bow with a clip or barrette attachment or create your own using a stiff ribbon material. Pull hair back into a high ponytail, smooth the baby hairs, and add your bow!

Not all accessories have to be oversized. Barrettes add a touch of girliness to your daughter’s hairstyle. They typically are applied by gliding the open end into hair and then snapping them to close. Try this adorable style that incorporates curly ribbon barrettes on twisted half-up half-down pigtails.

Bubble elastics have been around for ages and many of us may remember them in our own hair at one time. Use them for ponytails, in braids, or try a creative style like this that incorporates a few twisted ponytails crossed over one another.

Headscarves come in a variety of prints and colors and can easily keep hair out of the way during a heatwave. Place hair into a high ponytail or bun then tie one around the perimeters of the head into a bow or knot.

One of the easiest ways to protect your little boy or girl from the sun is to cover up with a hat. Choose a wide-brim, bucket style, or straw for 360 degree coverage or a baseball cap to shade the face and add a touch of swag.

Headbands are another simple accessory that work well on all hair lengths. A cloth material can be wrapped around the head or you can opt for the standard plastic headband that is secure around the top half of the head.

A giant flower (real or faux”> can add a touch of nature to curls or a braid-out. Try a sunflower, peony, or rose placed above the ear to brighten up a simple hairstyle.
