Have you ever had crochet braids so lovely that your child begged to get the same hairstyle? Well, we tell you about the latest crochet hair styles for kids! Check out our selection of crochet hair styles pictures and find the perfect style for your child.
We have separated our picks of the latest crochet styles for kids into three distinct categories: crochet braids styles, twist styles and all the other styles that do not fit into either category. Without further ado, let’s get to it!
Crochet braids hairstyles for kids
Let’s start off this category with the simplest and most recognizable braid hairstyle. Here, we have regular box braids, but they are made special with the lovely hair accessories. Taking into account that the child is still quite small, it is a good idea to keep the hairstyle short, otherwise it might get too heavy, especially if your kid loves to swim. But with a bob like this, there should be no issues with that.

Now, if your child is older, you can go all in with the braids and make them waist-long. If you want to add a little something extra, you can use different colours of hair to make the hairstyle look more interesting. Braids like these can be worn in a variety of ways, the simplest one being down, and you can add accessories, such as a lovely hairband.
Not all kids want straight braids. Some might want to stand out and have some curly braids. With this hairstyle, you can give your child what they want. Unlike most other crochet hairstyles, this one features thinner braids, which will definitely take more time to get done, but the result (and the happy expression on your kid’s face) is worth it.
We have had a bob at the beginning of this section, but this is another way you can go with it. Instead of attaching the braids at the roots, you can start with cornrows and make your way to the ends. Moreover, instead of using heat to seal the braids, you can use rubber bands or string. While it is less secure, if you are working with longer hair, you do not want to ruin it with heat.
Sometimes you just want to have the longest braids you can get, and your child is no different. If they want to get long braids, why not give it to them? One of the most convenient hairstyles for long braids like these ones is a high ponytail braids.
Twist crochet hairstyles for children

There are many ways you can go about getting your child crochet twists, one of them being twists that are a little on the shorter side. As we have said before, it is best not to give your gill hair that is too long or too heavy, as it might put unnecessary strain on your kid’s developing body. Instead, you should go for shoulder-length and choose hair that is lighter and less dense.
Here is another way to do crochet twists. It is slightly more subtle, and the twists are much tighter, although there are still two different colours of hair involved, so it is not too formal-looking.
If you (or your child) do not want the twists that start with the cornrows, you can always start right at the roots. And in order to avoid loose strands getting in the face, you can clip some of them at the back of the head, at the same time creating a cool look.
All that said, if they do want longer twists, do not overdo it; the argument for the lighter hair still stands. At the same time, you can think of some fun ways to style it, so that it is not just down all the time. For instance, you can make knots and bows out of the twists that would look adorable on any child.
One of the best ways to go with crochet twists is using the lightest hair possible and making the twists very loose. It will be much easier on your child’s head and hair, and the large loose twists will look very pretty. Besides, if you go for Kanekalon, the twists will also be shiny.
