Taking the classic ponytail to the next level is as easy as adding a cute headband and bow.

What to do:

1. Slick hair back into a ponytail.

Pro tip: If you have thick hair, Hershberger suggests doing multiple ponytails and make the one in the middle the highest. On the model Maxine, she actually did three ponytails.

For the child that hates to sit still, but still wants some extra glam, this hairstyle is so easy to create.

What to do:

1. Curl the hair.

Pro tip: If you don't want to use an curling iron, Hershberger suggests braiding it or putting it in clips before your child goes to sleep and then they'll wake up with gorgeous waves.

2. Pull the hair back into a half ponytail and twist the sides.

6. Make antlers out of pipe cleaners and place in on top of the bun.
