I think about hair often. Mostly because I have three daughters and they all have LONG, THICK, HAIR. I brush A LOT of hair every day!

Three girls in front of a tagged wall.

So, I set out to find great hair-themed picture books. Here are some of my favorites:

HAIR TWINS

“A Sikh father and daughter with a special hair bond.”

THE HAIR BOOK

The Hair Book by Graham Tether. Cover has girl with long hair and dog with fancy hair.

This one is an oldie-but-goodie.

THE HAIR OF ZOE FLEENFENBACHER GOES TO SCHOOL

Picture Book THE HAIR OF ZOE FLEEFENBACHER GOES TO SCHOOL. Girl walking holding books. She has extremely huge hair.

Zoe’s hair is so large and out-of-control, that it literally takes on a life of its own.

THE HAIR BOOK

Picture book cover, THE HAIR BOOK, lots of different hairstyles on heads.

A bold celebration of all kinds of hairstyles.

ON ACCOUNT OF THE GUM

Picture Book ON ACCOUNT OF THE GUM. Cover shows child with hair full of crazy things like a cat, bunny, gum, butter.

Have you read Oliver Jeffer’s book, STUCK? This book is a lot like that book.. but this time it all begins with a piece of gum…

MY HAIR IS MAGIC

Picture book MY HAIR IS MAGIC. Cover shows picture of girl with hands on hips and huge hair.

Some hair is so big and fabulous, it calls for celebration.

HAIR LOVE

Picture Book HAIR LOVE. Cover has picture of Dad and Daughter looking at each other.

Although this story talks a lot about hair, it is really a heartfelt story about family and love.

STEPHANIE’S PONYTAIL

Picture Book STEPHANIE'S PONYTAIL. cover shows mom pulling girl's hair up in a ponytail.

Stephanie wants her hair to be unique, but every time she tries something new, everybody else tries it too. Haha- this book makes me laugh.

One more thing while we are talking about hair.

JUST IN CASE you haven’t heard of the Wet Brush…it has been a lifesaver in our house. MUCH more gentle on the head.

Picture of two hair brushes. One Pink. One Purple.

We are STILL LOOKING for the best detangle spray available, so if you have a favorite, let me know!
