1Long Bob with Side Swept Bangs

How adorable is this little girl’s lob? The blunt tips and shaping toward the ends of the lob will look wonderful on thin and thicker hair. The side-swept bangs help frame the face and could be styled in a number of ways.

2Cute Flipped Ponytail

For a simple yet beautiful up-do for your little girl’s short hair, try out the flipped ponytail? It is so easy to do yourself at home, and you can even buy special tools for very little money to create the perfect flipped ponytail.

3Pixie Cut with Face-Framing Bangs

If your little one has fine hair, this sweet pixie cut with face-framing bangs is perfect. The layers give the style a lovely shape that is still young, and the layers give some extra texture to thin hair. So adorable!

4Choppy Bob with Short Bangs

This short, choppy bob is the perfect low maintenance hairstyle. It requires minimal styling as it makes the most of the hair’s natural texture. Straight, wavy, or curly hair – this cute little girl’s hairstyle will work with all hair types. And how sweet are those short bangs?

5Mini Space Buns and Natural Curls

This little girl’s natural curls are so beautiful and they really take centre stage in this gorgeous style. The mini space buns are super cute and can be jazzed up for parties or special occasions with pretty bows or other hair accessories.

6Rope Braids and Pigtails

Pigtails are the perfect hairstyle for little girls with short hair and we love the little extra detail of the rope braids. Super pretty and will stay in place during a full day of play and adventures.

7Asymmetric Bob with Layers

The shape of this layered asymmetric bob is great with the flicked out layers through the length and the curled under ends to frame the face. Minimal styling is required, a rough blow-dry and a little shaping should be all it takes.

8Cute Bubble Braid

The bubbe braid (or pull-through braid) is not just for long hair, it looks so pretty on short hair. The mini ponytails of this little girl’s hairstyle are very cute and we love how it has been finished off with a girly pink bow.

9High Ponytail with Bangs and Bow

Sometimes the simple hairstyles are the best. Perfect for a day at school or a day of play, this high ponytail with long bangs is gorgeous and I love the addition of the off-centre over-sized bow.

10Layered Bob with Full Bangs

Oh my gosh! How amazing is this layered bob? The subtle layers through the lengths of the hair are really soft and light and are a great contrast to the sharp, blunt bangs. A perfect short hairstyle if your little girl has thick hair.

11Asymmetric Messy Bun and Bow

If your little one has a party to go to, this asymmetric messy bun is the perfect short hairstyle. Tie the hair up in a high side ponytail and pin the loose ends into a messy bun shape and finish with a decorative hair accessor, like this gorgeous red hair bow.

12Sleek Bob with Mini Pull-Through Braid

I love the mini pull-through braid of this sleek, single-length lob. The sharp ends are super neat and straight for a really polished style for picture day. That is if your little one can keep it looking smart for long enough.

13Cool Asymmetric Pixie Cut

How cool is this asymmetric pixie cut with one super short side? The longer lengths have been given loose curls, which are accentuated by a few blonde highlights. An edgy style that is still age-appropriate.

14Laced Ponytails with Pigtails

If you think these lace ponytails look a little complicated, you’d be wrong. They are actually quite simple to do and there are loads of amazing tutorials on YouTube if you need a little help. Very cute and would look so wonderful with a few daisies or little fresh flowers weaved in for the perfect flower girl hairstyle.

15Mini Braid and High Ponytail

Isn’t this gorgeous high ponytail with beautiful natural curls, the most adorable thing you have ever seen? The little mini braid feeding into the high ponytail adds a lovely detail, for a style that would work for little girls of all ages.
