Through primary school and most of secondary school, my mother always did my hair. Braids and pigtails were her strong suit, but sometimes she even helped me curl my locks by placing them in heat rollers. You know, those things that existed before curling irons? You could say she was my personal stylist. So for all you mums and dads out there who are personal stylists for your daughter, here are so many great hairstyles for little girls.

Like the true hair stylist expert you are, you'll absolutely adore these cute dos. They might be difficult to get the hang of at first, but your daughter will appreciate the effort. Plus, doesn't every parent want their child to be the coolest kid on the playground?

From casual braids to some updos that are a little more formal, you'll definitely experience some trial and error by bringing these new hairstyles into your life. Just don't give up! If everyone else can do them, then so can you. Just take a few days to master these awesome hair tutorials and down the road all the other parents in town will be begging you for your secret! Fight through the frustration (trust me, I didn't even know how to do a French braid until last week), because it'll be worth it when you see your little girl smiling.
