How To Choose The Right Hair Clips For Baby Girls

By Lena Stephenson

If you have a new daughter, niece or cousin you may be looking forward to all of the fun clothing and accessories that you can buy. Often times, you will want to use cute accessories to style your new girl's hair and the right accessories can make a difficult task much easier. Here is what you need to know if you are buying hair clips for baby girls.

The kind of hair a child has will really influence what your options are. You do not want to use very large clips or elastics if a child has very little hair. You may be surprised to learn that some babies will have almost a full head of tresses right from birth while others tend to need to wait to let theirs grow in a little. Some will have strands all over and others may have growth limited to specific parts of their head. All infants tend to have very fine locks which can make it difficult for some accessories to stay in for very long.

It is very important to pick accessories that are easy to use one handed. Even if you are able to open it before you put it in the hair, you may find that it is difficult to close certain barrettes or accessories easily. When you are trying to do so holding hair or a squirmy baby with the other hand it can lead to a frustrating experience that many parents will want to avoid.

You may also want to think about how long the child will be wearing the clip or elastic. Babies will often fall asleep on a frequent basis, especially when they are very young. You may want to make sure that the clip or elastic you are using is soft enough that it will not hurt the baby if she falls asleep with it still in place. The last thing you want to do is to try and remove an accessory from a baby who has fallen asleep.

You may find that a child will be resistant to having anything in their hair. This is more likely if a child has not had their hair handled from a very young age. Being patient and trying a few times with any particular style may mean that you have a more cooperative child to work with. If there is a special event coming up and you want to style your child's locks you might want to consider some practice runs that will let her get a feel for the items you are putting in her hair.

Some babies hate having anyone pull or move their tresses and may kick up a fuss if you try to put in clips or barrettes. They may, however, be willing to accept a headband. By being patient and letting a child get used to having things in their hair, you may find that you have better success later down the road when you may want to try more ambitious hairstyles.

There are many places that you can find options for your little girl. Often, drug and department stores will have a good selection of items. Children's specialty stores will also usually have clips and barrettes that you can choose from.

Once you have a few items the real fun can begin. Try mixing and matching or using several small clips to hold small sections of the hair. This can be great if a child has sparse locks or hairs that are very short. In no time at all, you will be able to create beautiful looks for your new baby girl.
