Looking at pictures of hairstyles with your child is often the best way to find the right look for her; we have many photo galleries that highlight popular styles, both contemporary and classics that never go out of style:

Personal Expression

While it's always a good idea to teach children how to dress appropriately for any given occasion, be sure to recognize the importance of self-expression and the role that clothing, hair, shoes, and accessories can play in this process. Provide guidance for your child, and make sure he is dressed warmly enough and is wearing appropriate clothing to school, but also encourage his freedom of expression by making his closet a place of free choice, within reason.
