MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--From the dreaded bowl cut to mullets and perms, we all remember the terrible hairstyles of our childhood. The good news for today’s kids is that these styles have come and gone and are now replaced with much more stylish choices. In an effort to make sure kids across the country sport the most stylish ‘dos this year, Snip-its, the nation’s leading kid-focused hair salon and entertainment concept, announced today its picks for ‘Top 2017 Hairstyle Trends for Kids.’
With a dedication to making haircuts fun for children and relaxing for parents, Snip-its offers premium kid’s haircuts, kid-friendly spa services, birthday parties and its own line of salon quality haircare products. The brand’s knowledge in children’s haircare makes it the experts on all things related to kid’s hair – styles, cuts, accessories and more.
“At Snip-its, we consider ourselves to be the experts on kids hair – everything from cuts to styles and even accessories,” said Marsha Cole, Director of Artistic Education at Snip-its. “Each year the trends for kids change, and this year there are some super fun, stylish options that we are excited to share with parents and kids alike.”
Below is Snip-its’ break down of the latest styles and trends for little girls and boys this year:
- Bob—Super cute and easy to style, this classic look becomes a trendy disheveled bob when you piece it out, add texture and mess it up. The bob comes in many different hair lengths and is perfect for both school days and playdates.
- Pixie—Mod is back with a 2017 twist. Little girls look adorable in this short, cropped pixie cut with more layering on top.
- Elaborate Braids—Braids are here to stay when it comes to girl styles and trends. Your tiny tots will love looking like their favorite princess or fairy tale character! Many braids and partial braids making an elaborate hairdo are in. Look for lots of Dutch and top knot trends leading the pack this year.
- Undercut—The IT look for 2017 is extra trendy when you add a hard line part! Your little man will look adorable with this short, clipper cut that’s longer in the front. Some Snip-its Funky Spiker and Wacky Wax will keep him dashing and dapper all day.
- Hard Line Part—The hottest kid trend—and adult trend—around! The hard line is versatile, neat and bold. It looks great with a classic pompadour.
- Pompadour—Comes in many shapes and sizes for men, women and children. We love the way the boys are wearing it this year with a tapered clipper cut and some edging, designs or hard lines cut in. It makes for a neat and clean look, even if the top is long and styled high.
Color, Design and Bling Trends:
- Add-On Flair—tinsel strands and glitter roots. Everything’s better with sparkle! The glitter root trend is sweeping high fashion adult trends this year—but we know they’re just reliving their childhood. Our kiddos make this look sweet, charming and irresistible.
- Kid-Friendly Pop of Color—color shots and hair stencils for the little rock star who wants to express some soul. Kid-friendly, temporary color spray, gel and chalk, means you can switch these colors and designs up frequently.
- Cut-in Designs—Lighting bolt, hearts or any other design you can think of. Little ones are jumping at the chance to get their favorite designs cut right in to their haircut this year!
