Top Ten Hairstyles for Teens

When you're a teenager, everything seems to have so much more importance and you sometimes blow things out of proportion. The issue of your hair is no exception to the freak out rule, making it even more necessary that you have a few styles you can rely on so you can go back to stressing over other things!

  1. One of the easiest, time proven ways to do your hair is simply straight and down. Regardless of the length, this is a great style that complements almost any outfit and is quick to do in the morning. This is a great standby.
  2. You can also do the crimpier curls that are becoming popular. Take small chunks of your hair don't wrap it in the curling iron, but rather wrap the hair around the curling iron so it's not so definitely curled, but rather carries the idea of curled. With this look you don't even need to curl all of your hair; you can pull off the same look without every piece of hair curled. This is a great time saver in the morning!
  3. Having short hair is a great cut for you high school students who are always on the go. Having the short, slightly layered look is a fantastic way to look great while you run from school to work to lacrosse practice to piano lessons to your Friday night date. A cut that looks great without much maintenance is a surefire route to flattering and easy.
  4. One of my favorite easy looks is having your hair pulled halfway up. You can use either a clip or an elastic for this style and this is great for not only casual or dressier outfits, but also for getting that extra hair pulled out of the way so you can really focus!
  5. Another great cut that will stand out in the hallways is having multiple layers on long hair. This gives your hair depth and more movement, making it a head-turner wherever you go.
  6. A variation of #5 is having fewer, longer layers. This still gives your hair more movement but is more understated and usually easier to get away with not styling if you're in a hurry in the morning.
  7. With shorter hair, you can do bouncy ringlets that can pull together an outfit and give you the look of being put together and ready for your day. This one usually takes a bit more time and significant quantities of hairspray. (Definitely one to avoid if you slept through your alarm!)
  8. One of my favorite ways my teenage sister does her hair is to give it soft waves with a big barrel curling iron. It looks like she's putting in ringlets, but makes it looser, creating a soft wavy look that looks great with any outfit.
  9. A ponytail is also a good fallback option for when you don't have a lot of time in the morning. The best way to do this look though (without looking a bit ratty) is to curl your hair just enough to give it some bounce and then it looks great in the ponytail!
  10. Another cute teenager look and one that can be tweaked for any personality style is pigtails. You can look cute and like a little kid or you can look laidback and sporty with looser pigtails or you could even do braids. This is another great option for when you're running late or didn't have time to shower after volleyball practice. This still lets people know that you care without giving you the hassle of spending time you don't have on your hair.

Being a teenager in the twenty-first century is an adventure that's getting busier and busier with each year. Don't let your schedule get you down about your hair, but rather use these tips to give you quick and cute solutions to crazy days!
