    11 Back-to-School Hairstyles Worth Stealing

    Hairstyles you should consider for a new back-to-school look

    It’s officially back to school time! With the start of a new school year, it’s time to stock up on school supplies, revamp your wardrobe and most importantly, update your hairstyle!  New clothes are fabulous, don’t get me wrong, but new clothes alone won’t account for a fresh, new look. There is nothing like a new ‘do, or even the subtlest change of hair color, to make a new fashion statement and put you on the “fashion forward” hot list.

    You can take cues from the latest runway shows and adapt them for your favorite everyday back to school look. Or, get inspiration from your favorite celebrities. Either way, great looking hairstyles start with healthy hair. To revive your hair from any damage it acquired throughout the summer, start a great hair care regime that includes using moisturizing hair products, deep conditioning, and getting regular trims to cut off old ends that are weak or ragged.

    A great back to school hairstyle should work with your hair type so it doesn’t require long and grueling work. A new school year means a fresh new start, and we’ve got the inspiration you need. Try out one of these fabulous hairstyles and make a new impression as you head back to school!

    Shoulder length hair mania has not subsided yet. In fact, shoulder length cuts are great for back to school looks because they are easy to manage and provides a lot of room for versatility in style. But one way to easily transition your summer hairstyle for fall and back to school is to add beach waves to your mid-length hair. A light ombre can also give a hint of summer to your hairstyle. However, keep it light and subtle for an updated look.

    Sleek but Sassy

    Ballerina Bun

    Style your hair in a neat and tight bun for your back to school look. This is the perfect choice on busy mornings because you can do it within minutes and don’t have to worry about your hair for the rest of the day! Start by forming your hair into a ponytail and then twisting the ends to form into a bun. Secure with an elastic tie so you can keep the hair off of your face. If you have some extra time on your hands, you can also spice up your regular ballerina bun by adding in some braids. It is also a great hairstyle to transition into the night as you can create lovely waves when you remove the bun.

    Back to School Hair Style Tips

Back to school means you will have less time each morning to fuss over hair styling. You’ll need quick easy, no fuss hairstyle that hopefully will look great and be flattering.

    So here are my tips for making the transition from easy-living summer hair, to back to school hairstyles.

    Keep it simple

    Your hairstyle should work with your hair type not against it . . . end the battles and go with the natural grain of your hair. Unless you are very talented with styling your hair, you will find any big change will mean more time upfront on your hair styling routine each morning. When you’re pressed for time, this is stress you can do without. Save the new back to school hairstyle change till after you are into your new routine and are settled in. If you want to make a change, remember less-is-more. A small change can do wonders! Cut in bangs, grow out bangs, partial foil hair color, semi-permanent hair color.

    Get it Healthy

    Summer can leave your hair, dry, split ends and faded from the sun. If you swim in salt water or a pool you need some TLC to get back to healthy, shiny, and more vibrant hair. If your hair is damaged looking, it won’t look good, no matter how much you spend for the right hairstyle.

    Try this Routine!

    • Use a clarifying shampoo, once a week if needed to rid your hair of product buildup.
    • Do a deep hair conditioning treatment, once a week, after clarifying. Use a shower cap or Saran wrap and towel to generate heat, leave it in your hair for at least 20 minutes in order to penetrate the hair shaft deeper.
    • Add moisture if you have dry hair, by using a good hair moisturizing conditioner or moisturizing leave-in hair conditioner.
    • Add protein if your hair is lifeless. That is a hair conditioner with collagen and elastin which adds a slight feel of thickness to the hair.

    Learn 3 different ways to style your back to school hair style

    By spending a little time spent up front learning just a couple new hair styling techniques, you will give your hair a break, save yourself time every day and get a reputation as being fashionable too! Too many women I see, assume the part of being hair styling impaired or just can’t visualize a different way of styling hair.

    You will probably have a favorite way of hair styling, but by changing it around a bit, it won’t get old and tired looking. You will be seen as more creative too! At every haircut appointment you have, ask your hairdresser to show you a new way of styling your hair. Make sure to get the styling hair care product recommendations at the same time. You don’t need to buy the hair salon product, however, you will need the same type of product to achieve that particular look for your hair type.

    • Learn how to use one new hair styling tool. Try a flat iron, different size curling iron, velcro rollers, hot rollers, rag rollers, bendy rollers, pin curls, roller brush iron, blow dryer with round brush attached, diffuser.

    Learn to style with a product only and give your hair a break.

    Try one of these: gel, spray gel, mousse, pomade, serum, curl enhancer, shine product, smoothing product, styling cream, root lifter, sculpting lotion, thermal spray, volumizer.

    • Learn an updo. If your hair is long enough, learn one new way to get a classic, casual, contemporary or elegant look and change your look totally and quickly. A hairdresser, who is into their trade, can help you out here. Your hair doesn’t need to be as long as you may think to do some of these hairstyles for school girls.
    • Learn to braid, they are back. Classes are given at my local Community Education, check it out in your area. The library is another source for learning to braid. Grab any teenage girl with long hair, she can probably WOW you with the back to school hairstyle possibilities.

    Hair Stylists Share School Hairstyles Tips

    Learn how to communicate with your hairdresser. A hair stylist cutting a clients hair.

    Styling school hairstyles is a whole different profession

    Hairdressers who give haircuts to kids are under appreciated and underpaid. I admit it publicly, that I do not give this part of the hair business its due. I rarely write about kids hair, mostly because I didn’t take on kids as my clientele. It requires different skills, mind set and last but not least, lots of patience, to get these little moving targets styled quickly and quietly to every ones satisfaction.

    But if you’re finding it a little bit more difficult to get that hairdresser appointment in the past couple of weeks for your kids, its because it’s the busiest time of year at these hair salons. Back to school and hairstyles are synonymous.

    I know many of you who read my articles have kids of your own to be concerned about so when I spotted this piece from the The Charlotte Observer, I just had to pass it along. It really does have some good school hairstyles tips.

    Best Tip Advice: Leave your child and hairstylist alone if you want the job done right. Young kids act up and move around much more if a parent is standing by. Unless you come armed with a bank of the best videos of kids on YouTube to keep them occupied. Older kids feel especially doted over and controlled. Every styles I know GREATLY prefers you out of the surrounding area and may not know how to tell you this in a polite way.

    It’s also excellent for them to bond with a hairdresser and create their own relationship with them. They won’t mind getting their next haircut if they have an experience that isn’t a “push and pull” type of memory.

    It is well worth the read, especially for those moms out their who are trying to get the brood off to school without spending a bloody fortune.

    School Hairstyles Tips
    The Charlotte Observer


    Experts’ tips help take the snags out of children’s hair care, for both parents and youngsters Here are suggestions for taming younger kids’ hair: As small children head to the classroom, they’re jamming hair salons and barber shops, accompanied by their parents.

    ‘It’s our busiest time of the year,’ said Amy Marszalek, co-owner of Doolittle’s, a children’s hair salon in south Charlotte. ‘We’re swamped.’

    As parents try to tame the tangles of summer play or send their children to school with a new hairstyle hair-care experts have advice on caring for kids’ hair — and how to teach the kids to do the same.

    Earlier this month at the Supercuts on Providence Road, Elizabeth Holtz clutched her stuffed Dalmatian dog and grinned into the mirror.

    Snip, snip, snip went the scissors through the strawberry blond strands.

    It was the 5-year-old’s first haircut. She was unflappable.

    It was mom who was having a hard time.

    ‘Oh!’ said Cameron Blake Holtz as Supercuts hair stylist Angie Ayers cut Elizabeth’s to-the-waist ponytail. (Was it the hair salon lights or did her eyes suddenly tear up?)

    The dramatic change wasn’t a rash decision. It had been months in the making. Elizabeth wanted to follow her mom’s example and donate her hair to Locks of Love, a group that makes wigs for children suffering from medical hair loss.

    And it was time for another reason: Elizabeth is entering kindergarten and her long hair ‘is a little much to manage,’ Blake Holtz said.

    The first haircut

    When it’s time for a child’s first professional haircut, there are ways to make it easier on everyone.

    Talk it up at home, said Patsy Cannon, general manager of Supercuts of Charlotte. ‘Have a parent or sibling get their hair cut at the same time,’ she said. ‘And give them something to hold.’

    Some salons, such as Doolittle’s, cater to the youngest kids by stocking toys in the waiting area and providing salon chairs that are shaped like cars.

    Damian Johnson, owner of No Grease! Barber College in east Charlotte, suggests that parents stand back a little and let the hairdresser take over.

    ‘We tell the parents to let them be with us,’ he said. ‘Go take a seat, read a magazine, let us kind of introduce them into boyhood. (Mom’s) baby is now going into another stage.’

    All experts interviewed said it’s a good idea to take the child to the same hairdresser each time, so a bond can develop.

    As with adults, how often kids should have their hair cut depends on the hairstyle. In Charlotte, kids’ cuts tend to range from about $10 to $20.

    Generally a short cut and bangs will start looking ragged after about six weeks, several hairdressers said. Longer, unlayered hair needs to be trimmed less frequently, about every eight to 12 weeks, depending on rate of growth and split ends. Some stylists offer free bang trims.
