School's (almost) out for Summer, and soon kids will be enjoying a slew of seasonable activities [1]. Of course, it's hard for kids to enjoy the great outdoors when hair is falling in front of their face. While you could throw it into a ponytail and call it a day, you can just as easily create a cute look for your daughter's locks [2]. From braids to buns, these Summer hairstyles are a great way to keep her cool — literally and figuratively — over the next few months! We even have one made especially for your little man.
