This is one of my most popular hair styles for little girls...they usually love the curls and request this style a lot. As you see, it can also be worn straight.

In society we are accustomed to our little girls hair being done by moms or at least a female figure. However, women of today are career women, or maybe even just a busy mom or wife. Therefore, we are now seeing more cases of fathers that have to step up to the plate to take on parent duties one of the most popular duties is fathers styling their daughter's hair.
Some dads may feel frustrated at the thought of having to do his daughter's hair, while other dads may feel like hey if a woman can do it so can I. When asking around I found that 8 out of 10 dads are left on a regular basis to have to get their children ready. Some dads might just take their daughter to the salon and some may naturally know what to do and go for it. One dad told me that he doesn't mind at all having to style his daughter's hair. He said the easiest hair style to him is two "Minnie Mouse Puffs" as he called them. When asked if he prefer to do it himself or take her to someone he stated that "It's not that difficult, so it's nothing I can't handle on my own." Some dads may have these task down and some may not be so good at it, I am sure their are situations were the daughters hate it, however, little girls don't want to crush their dads feelings, so they just go with the flow.
My suggestion to dads are to try out different techniques and have fun while doing so. Try a simple style such as one ponytail or maybe two and accessorize it with cute hair bows and/or ribbons. Your daughters will get a kick out of the outcome and you can make it fun and exciting for her, but most of all you will be able to prove that their are really dads out here that can handle the task, but most importantly it will be some of the most memorable times you spend with your daughter.

Our children have ways of expressing themselves in many different aspects. One of the most popular ways is by appearance. Appearance is very important to children of all ages and they love to have their own style. Hair, clothing, and accessories all play a major part in this regardless of their age. My daughter is getting older and I am starting to notice that at the age of four years old she wants to make her own style decisions such as clothing, rooms decor and hair.
I believe that the ideas come from our children being around a variety of different peers or it could possibly be a magazine, book, or television show. In today's society kids are sometimes exposed to a lot, so they are learning faster than normal.
Often times I just allow my daughter to be creative with her styles, but with my help though of course, just her ideas. My daughter attends a private daycare were they wear uniforms and have a strict dress code policy, so guess what our only way to spice it up during the week is with her hair, hair accessories, big bows, ribbons, head bands, etc.
The uniforms is also one of the reasons why I let her have her way on the weekends with her fashion. As parents we have to keep in mind that their are always new styles and trends that they want to try. They see their friends trying something new, maybe it was something they saw in a store, magazine, or television show.
We should allow our kids to express themselves through style, because it can have great benefits, such as building their self esteem, creativity, trail and error...certain styles don't work, and simple rules for fashion.
