  • 11 Back to School Hairstyles Your Girl Will Love

    Easy back to school hairstyles Image credit: Style Interest

    With the new school term now in full swing, your little ones will no doubt be settling into their new routines nicely.

    And a big part of that routine for girls involves - you guessed it - hair styling!

    The right hair style can make all the difference to your little girl's day at school. As well as helping her look smart and presentable, hair styles can also be a form of expression and creativity, and a way to customise an otherwise rigid school uniform.

    Whether you're on hairdresser duty every morning, or your girl likes to do her hair herself, we've got 11 cute, sophisticated back-to-school hairstyles for you to try below. All of them are heatless (so better for her hair), are speedy enough to do in the mornings and easy enough for her to try herself (giving you a little more morning time - win win!).

    Each one will keep her hair tidily out of her face while also allowing her to feel confident heading off to school.

    Check them out below!


    Cute & Easy Back-to-School Hairstyles

    Barette Side Part

    The cheeky barette side part is a relaxed and effortless hairstyle that will make her feel like a tropical princess! The addition of barrettes also adds a classic 90s charm.

    1. Part her hair down the middle and add a little texture or sea salt spray to achieve tousled beachy waves. Run product through hair.
    2. Sweep hair back behind the ear on one or both sides and clip in some shiny barettes down the side, about an inch and a half apart.


    Slicked Back Ponytail

    A high ponytail is always a sleek, sophisticated look, but you can give it a twist by wrapping around hair at the base or adding some ribbon or accessories.

    1. Brush her hair to get rid of any knots and tangles. As an optional step, run some anti-frizz serum through the lengths to add smoothness and shine.
    2. Gather the hair up at the top of the head, brushing to get rid of any bumps, and then secure with a metal-free hair elastic.
    3. Take a half inch width piece of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic tie so that it is covered. Secure with a bobby pin or two.

    This hairstyle also works great with pigtails!


    French Braids

    Ever a classic, French braids allow hair to stay tamed and tangle-free and work in both short and long hair.

    1. Brush hair to get rid of knots and add a bit of anti-frizz serum or hair oil to keep hair nourished and smooth whilst in the braids.
    2. Part hair down the middle. Split each half into three sections and braid, starting from either the top of the head or lower down for casual plaits. Secure each braid with a metal-free hair tie.

    Top tip: Do this hairstyle while hair is slightly damp to enjoy awesome loose mermaid waves the next morning! #twohairstylesinone.


    Braided Low Ponytail

    Can't decide between a braid or a ponytail? Have both!

    This braided low ponytail is the perfect laid-back relaxed style but still impressive enough to turn heads.

    1. Divide hair into three sections and begin braiding from the back of her head.
    2. When enough of the braid has taken shape, secure the rest of the hair in a metal-free hair tie to make a ponytail. Take one section of hair and wrap it around the hair band to disguise it and create a sleek, finished look. Pin to secure.
    3. OPTIONAL: Curl pieces of the ponytail with a curling wand for extra sass and sophistication.


    Top Knot

    The top knot is a classic style which is used by everybody - from busy mums to female CEOs to celebs on the red carpet.

    1. Brush hair to remove all knots and tangles, and if necessary smooth hair with an anti-frizz smoothing serum.
    2. Gather hair at the top of the head and brush into a ponytail. Secure with a metal-free hair tie.
    3. Twist the ponytail and wrap around the base to create a top knot. Secure with a second hair tie.
    4. You can choose to keep this style smooth and sleek, or soften it up a little by leaving some strands loose to frame the face. You can also make the bun a little messier by teasing out strands before and after securing.
    5. OPTIONAL: Accessorise with some ribbon or cute butterfly clips, 90s style.


    Half-up Braided Bun

    The half-up braided bun is a unique twist on the traditional and will definitely have heads at school turning.

    1. Take three small pieces of hair either side of the face and make two thin braids.
    2. Bring both braids round towards the back of the head and either tie together, or twist into a bun (if hair is long enough).

    This hairstyle also looks great when rocking loose, beachy waves.


    Rope Braid Ponytail

    This style adds a great twist on your usual high ponytail - literally! It works best on longer hair that is all the same length.

    1. Brush hair to rid it of knots and tangles and add a little volumising spray if hair is very flat.
    2. Gather hair up at the top of the head and secure with a hair tie to make a high ponytail.
    3. Divide the ponytail into two sections and twist each one so that it is almost like a 'sausage' shape.
    4. Wrap the two hair sausages around each other until you reach the ends of the hair. Secure with a hair tie.


    Space Buns

    Space buns may have been the ultimate 90s style, but luckily they're still just as fashionable today. We also love that they're so easy to recreate!

    1. Part hair down the centre and brush hair to get rid of knots.
    2. Gather each section of hair high up on the head and secure with a hair tie. Then, take each ponytail separately and twist it around the base to create a top knot on each side of the head. Secure each with a hair tie.
    3. OPTIONAL: Accessories each bun with a ribbon or add butterfly clips down the sides.

    Top tip: For extra flare, try braiding each section first for cool braided space buns! You can also blend this with a half-up, half-down style to keep changing things up.


    Side-Parted Low Pony

    A low pony doesn't have to be basic when you simply switch the parting! This side-parted low pony is effortless, elegant and chic.

    1. Brush hair to rid it of any knots. Decide how far over you'd like your side part to be, and starting from there, begin brushing hair over to the opposite side, taking care to get a nice straight line.
    2. Gather hair at the base of the head and secure with a metal-free hair tie. You might decide to take the ponytail to the side or keep it at the back - it's up to you.
    3. Accessorise the ponytail with ribbon or cutesy barettes down the side.


    Milkman Braids

    Milkman braids (also known as the halo braid) are a cute and neat little style that will take her perfectly from lessons to dance class and make her feel like a princess!

    1. Divide hair down the centre into two sections. Braid each section and secure each with a hair tie.
    2. Bring each braid to the top of the head and wrap them around so that they form a halo. Secure them in place with bobby pins.
    3. You can choose to keep this style neat and slick, or soften it by pulling out a few strands to frame the face.
    4. Finish with a spritz of hairspray, if needed.


    Clipped-Back Bob

    Short hair always looks so cute, but what about when your girl wants to grow it out? Luckily, the right accessories can create an adorable, carefree look.

    1. Brush through hair and then comb it to one side to create a side parting.
    2. Using either butterfly clips or pretty barettes, sweep the side with less hair behind the ear and secure so that it stays away from her face.
    3. You can also accessorise this look with a headband or a beautiful statement bow!

  • The Kids Back-to-School Clothes You Need this Term

    Kids back to school kids

    It’s that time of year again – when the kids are going back to school and summer already feels like a distant memory.

    Whether you’re sad to see your little ones go, or are counting down the days (we know you miss those daytime impromptu shopping trips), you’ll no doubt be thinking about what they’re going to wear and all the things you need to buy to make their new school term run smoothly.

    Luckily at Kids Cavern, we know how the right styles can make back-to-school shopping much more fun. We’re excited about our new range of kids back-to-school clothes, from dependable coats and jackets, to stylish school bags, to smart and practical designer school shoes.

    With brands like Gucci, Lelli Kelly, Hugo Boss, Fendi, Moncler, Timberland, DSquared2 and more, you’ll be able to choose a school uniform that’s stylish as well as functional, making the start of a new term a little less scary.


    Your Back to School Checklist

    • Reusable water bottle or flask
