Hairstyles for Teen Girls

CUTE HAIRSTYLES FOR TEEN GIRLS

If you’re looking for hairstyles for teen girls, these are for you. When it comes to pretty hairstyles and easy hairstyles, there’s nothing like hairstyles that you can do in just a few minutes (some even in seconds!). These hairstyles are really geared toward long hair, but you could make a couple of these work for short hairstyles.

Teenage girls love to rock some cool fashion, so why not have it reflected in their hair, too… right? I wanted to share hairstyles that could work for just about any teen girl whether they have straight hair, curly hair, thin hair, or thick hair. It’s about finding a perfect hairstyle that works for your teen and having them feel confident and beautiful. When I was a teen I loved wearing my hair in a french braid or a dutch braid. I was never good at braiding, so I always had to depend on my mom.

Hairstyles for teen girls

What I loved about that time in my life was that my mom and I had the opportunity to be together and bond while she did my hair. She wouldn’t take much time to do a simple braid on my hair, but it was still some one-on-one time for us to be together and talk. I was never into trying super fun hairstyles, I was pretty basic with my hair, but I know there are so many different cute hairstyles for teen girls.

I wanted to make sure I shared teen hairstyles that don’t look like they’re meant for little girls. I have an 8-year-old daughter and I know that she loves pigtails and super cute hairstyles that might not work for a teen so well. I really wanted to keep these hairstyles perfect for school, everyday wear, and for special occasions. The teenage years are all about growing up. You’re in high school and you’re having a great time! I hope some of these cool hairstyles for teen girls will work for the ones in your life!

High Ponytail

How to do a ponytail: high ponytail hairstyle

The ponytail is always an easy go-to. It can be worn with or without bangs, and it looks great when paired with a headband. I know this hairstyle works for young girls, too… but there’s something about wearing this hairstyle as a teenager. It’s just a simple hairstyle that looks chic and pretty. It’s a great hairstyle that you can wear just about anywhere. Add a fun hair tie and you’ve got a cute look. This hairstyle will only work on medium length hair or long hair, but the good thing is it doesn’t matter about your hair type.

Boho High Ponytail

Here’s another spin on a high ponytail and it’s a great way to add in some fun. Start with a pull-through braid on the top of your head and work it into a ponytail. The best part is that it’s super easy to do and is a super stylish hairstyle for teen girls. I love this one because it’s just a really great option if you want your hair up, but want to take a ponytail to the next level.

Half Up Braided Hairstyle

This braided hairstyle is another cute option because it makes your hair look thicker and fuller while also adding volume to the back of your head. You can create a messy braid with these by pancaking them, too. I love pancaking braids because it makes them look chunky and thick, very boho. This is a trendy look too that I love to do and it’s a perfect look for everyday wear.

Simple Braid Bun

Pretty Hairstyle for Teen Girls

OK, this is such a pretty and elegant hairstyle. It’s a simple braid bun will work well if she wants something low maintenance but still stylish to wear day in and out at school or on weekends around town. I’m obsessed with any kind of low bun hairstyle because it’s just a quick style that you can make any way you want. There are so many ways to create a low bun. If you have longer hair, this is a stylish look that you could wear to a dance or even a prom hairstyle.

Simple Braided Top Knot (or Top Bun)

Braided Top Knot Tutorial

I loved wearing a top knot during my teen years, I just didn’t know what it was actually called (don’t laugh!). It’s a popular style to wear to school or just out and about and it’s an easy way to pop all of your hair up and get it out of your hair. This is not for anyone with short hair or who has a short haircut. I love a top knot for special events, but also wearing with a tee shirt and jeans. it’s a perfect choice kind of hairstyle for teenage girls.

Side Braided Ponytail

Side Braided Ponytail

I love this hairstyle because it is such a pretty hairstyle. If you have long locks, this is a great one for you to do. Start by doing a braid on the side of your head and then work it over to the other side and cinch it into a side ponytail. I just think is a great one to do if you’re in a hair jam in the morning and not sure what to do with your hair.

Hopefully, some of these hairstyles will work on your teenage girls. I think they’re all super cute and easy to make work for just about anything. One thing you want to make sure of is that your teen is taking care of their hair. Healthy hair is a big deal and it’s important to start young.

If you’re looking for some amazing hair products to use on your teenager’s hair, here are some products I love using. I’m always asked about some great ones, so I love to be able to recommend what I’m actually using and loving.

My Favorite Hair Products

Dreamlover Hair Ties – These are perfect for hair retention. A must-have ponytail holder for daily use and workouts. Dreamlove hair ties can be stretched up to 9.8 inches but will not be stretched out easily, which is of great elasticity and good for thick hair. The hair ties no damage are made of thick cotton material and widened band, which could hold hair tightly enough without slipping and protect your hair better.

Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo: If you’re looking for a great shampoo, I highly recommend it this one. Repair your damaged hair during regular cleansing when you use Pantene PRO-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo. The combination of antioxidants and micro-moisturizers in this powerful Pro-V formula repairs and rejuvenates hair, improving the condition of lifeless, dull or damaged locks. Use regularly to help leave your hair more lush, soft and totally touchable.

No Damage Colored Hair Bands – I love these because they’re thinner and smaller, so they work really well on hairstyles. They come in a package of 1000 for about $6.00. You’ll have these elastics for months and months, I can’t say enough about them.

Pantene Pro-V Moisture Mist Detangler – This is my go-to when it comes to the perfect leave-in conditioner spray. I love this spray and always have it on hand. It’s reasonably priced, too. This moisturizing detangler provides a boost of hydration and helps eliminate tangles.

HASK Repairing ARGAN OIL 5-in-1 Leave In Conditioner Spray – I just bought this last week and I’m OBSESSED with it. First off – the smell is incredible and it works beautifully. This 5-in-1 Leave-In Conditioner penetrates the hair shaft, gently cleansing while it repairs damage and breakage, leaving even the most rebellious hair frizz-free, silky-soft and super glossy. It’s color safe, gluten free, sulfate free, paraben free.
