Back to School Hairstyles for Little Naturals

Here’s how my Back to School shopping venture goes.

  • Collect all the best deals on clothes, shoes, and school supplies.
  • Hit the stores on one weekend well before the other parents get there.
  • Return half the stuff I’ve bought because the kids either don’t fit them by the time school starts or I just decide that it’s not going to work.
  • Forget to scheduled basic things like haircuts (for my boys), a hair appointment (for my daughter) and a life-saving mani-pedi or a massage for me to have enough motivation to manage it all.

I know you’ve got a million things to check off your Back to School list. Don’t let selecting a cute natural hairstyle for your daughter fall by the wayside when I’ve found an entire gallery for you to choose from.
