Girls of all ages, are quite particular with their physical appearances. In fact some girls cannot go outside their homes without combing their hair or wearing a hair accessory such as a head band or a pin. However there are times when a younger girl is confused as to what accessory to use and ends up looking silly with the wrong choice of hair accessories.
One rule in fashion that most of us practice is to use and wear something that is just appropriate and proper for our age and personality. Same common rule applies to the selection of hair accessories for young girls.
Some girls have short hair while others sport a long hair style. Bows, headbands and clips are ideal for short hair styles while elastic holders of ponytails like scrunchies are good to use on long hair. Scrunchies are also good for a sporty girl to wear when she's participating in sports events in school so her hair will be kept neat and in control.
These hair accessories, conversely, are not just limited to a particular hair style. In fact each accessory may be tried on several other hair dos. For instance a ponytail elastic may be used for a single ponytail or for pigtails on one or both sides of the head. Bright colors of hair accessories are most fitting for the young girls. Also, hair accessories with designs like butterflies, flowers and hearts are appropriate for the girls.
Moms may choose to buy some plainly designed hair accessories and decorate the accessories as preferred by the daughters. There are readily available craft items like small flowers and beads that may be glued to the hair accessory like head bands. In addition, young girls together with their mothers can spend a bonding moment while making the young girl's hair accessories of ribbons, beads, pins and bows.
If there is anyone who can coach a girl in creating a good image for herself during the pre-teen years, then it is likely to be her mom. No mom would like her young daughter to look disheveled especially when going to school. Some moms even do the hairstyle of their teenage daughters just to make sure she will look presentable.
Part of the grooming lesson that must be taught to young girls is to keep the hair in place. Yet, it is not just limited to a simple combing or tying of hair. Aside from being neat, a girl can also be fashionable with the proper choice of hair accessories. Clips, pins and barrettes can be placed on properly combed hair either at the sides or at the top back. Headbands too can help keep the hair away from the face. There are bands and elastics that can secure a ponytail or a braid.
At a young age, girls must also be taught of what hair products to use. These hair products should not be causing damage to the young girl's hair but only to enhance the hair's good looks like hair mousse and hair conditioning leave ons.
