Usually, teenagers draw their inspiration reading fashion magazines and observing their favorite singers and actors. Still, one must also take into consideration personal preferences and style, and physical features too. Also, you can check out the trends and see if something matches your taste.
Teen girls’ hairstyles have this big advantage of allowing almost any type of experiment as the age is rather permissive. As long as you first consider your personality and facial traits, you can play and put your imagination to the test trying different haircuts. Don’t forget that naturalness and simplicity are more age appropriate and they keep that youthful and girly look.
Long hair allows you to play with different hairstyles and to change your look in no time. Moreover, a curling iron or a hair straightener gives you the possibility to make curls or soft waves, or have straight hair in just a few minutes. The most popular hairstyle trend among teen girls is braiding. And when it comes to braiding, there are a myriad of versions you can adopt from simple to more complex ones. Once you learn the basic steps, it will be much easier for you to take it to next level and manage more complicated braiding techniques.
The classic French braid is probably one of the most sophisticated, yet innocent braid of all. You should start with the central part of the hair and divide it into three equal sections. As you braid, add some small hair sections on the sides. Another very popular style among teen girls are the mini braids at the front on both sides to frame the face with the rest of the hair free.

Long, soft, natural waves and curls offer an innocent look especially when properly accessorized. Cascading waves are perfect for those who have a youthful look and are the perfect choice for special occasions. Long hair with blunt bangs is the right combination for a maximum teenage appearance. In fact, bangs have this amazing property of making everyone look younger. Very short, asymmetrical bangs work great on teen girls.
Ballerina buns have always created an elegant look despite the fact that they are so easy and quick to make. Depending on where you want to position the bun, secure hair into a ponytail. Brush or comb the pony, then twist and wrap it around the pony base, and tuck the ends. Secure the bun using hairpins or an elastic band. You can also choose a more messy look, twisting your hair into a top knot at the crown of your head. Both hairstyles can successfully be applied on curly hair.
Layered, highlighted long hair is very modern and cool. If you want, you can stick to the classic layered long hairstyle that starts just above the chin and continues all the way down. These are two of the most popular teen hairstyles.

Short hairstyles for teen girls are easy to maintain and style. Simple short hairstyles refresh any look, while they can still be cool and modern. The pixie cut is maybe one of the most popular hairstyle for teenagers. You can also try something more special and unique such as a bowl haircut.
If you are more the non-conformist type, a punk hairstyle would work great. Usually, punk cuts are wilder, and flatter almost any face shape. When choosing this kind of hairstyle make sure it totally suits your personality and lifestyle, as feeling good in your own skin is essential. Maintaining a punk style means using the right products in order to add volume or a super hold.

Whether you have short, long, medium, straight or curly hair, hair accessories are fun regardless your hair length and type. Teen girls can choose different colors when it comes to hair accessories as long as they match the outfit. Use hairpins with beads and add them into your bun or braid. Headbands will never go out of style. Therefore, investing in different shapes and colors is a smart thing to do. If you have short hair, choose a thinner headband, while for a long hair, wider ones are the best choice. For the romantic girls, bows and flowers will complete their bohemian look.
