Find out why we should embrace our baby hair and how to style your baby hair in 12 different ways.
Some years ago, nobody cared about the growing thin hairs around the forehead. More often than not, they are just swept back together with the rest of the hair strands. Not until A-list celebrities like FKA Twigs, Rihanna and Jeniffer Lopez started making twists and turns to their baby hairs. Baby hairs are the thin and wispy hair strands that grow along the hairline. They are mostly 1 inch in length and are often curled up in different directions making them hard to keep. But with the right baby hair products and styling, you can create art out of these tiny hairs. Use a gel or pomade to hold the baby hairs in place and to keep them in style. Styling your baby hair is another good way to cover a thick forehead. Not that we have a problem with them but it’s like a canvass and the baby hairs are the art!
Here are 12 different ways to style your baby hair.

Baby hairs can be annoying at times. But with proper styling and the use of the right baby hair product, you are on your way to getting that gorgeous edges. Baby hairs like your normal hair also need love and care. Although baby hair styling is fun, always remember to let your baby hairs rest. Too many styling products can harm your edges and can thin them down. After styling, remember to rest your hair and always keep them clean.
