6 HairStyles for Your Teen

Tired of the same look for your tween girl? Is she feeling her hairstyle is listless and lacks punch? Give her a makeover with these cool hairstyles.1. The One Sided Braid Braided hair is an ancient hairstyling technique with a rich long history across countries, cultures, and centuries. Earliest known braids are to have been seen in Africa. The African cornrow braid style for example dates back to 3500 BCE. While braids and plaits in India are quite common, you can opt for unusual braiding styles such as the one sided braid. Also called ‘side braid’ for short, this is a great hairstyle for long or medium length hair. It gives a chic look without appearing too formal.

2. The Top Knot The top knot looks casually cool, is simple to create, and is quite popular among trendy tweens. Just grab a few strands of hair and form into a tight knot at the very top. Leave the rest of the hair hanging loose. While this may not appropriate for school (especially if the dress code at school is strict), this is a great style for informal outings on weekends.
