Teens are fond
of saying "Oh, that's so last year (or last month or last week),
and they are always looking for the newest, cool teen hairstyle
ideas to suit their wardrobes. Teen hairstyle ideas are not so different
from adult hair styles, except that they may be a bit more bold
and change frequently. The best teen hairstyle ideas are for those
"dos" that can be changed often; a teenager will want
to wear her hair sedu straight one day like Jennifer Anniston, and
sport curly locks the next. Therefore, it is a good idea to incorporate
teen style ideas into a teen lifestyle which is active and often
ideas should be quick, easy and not too elaborate. However, this
is always Homecoming and the prom, so teen hairstyle ideas to fit
formal occasions are always needed. Most teens are active with jobs,
classes and extra-curricular activities, so a style that requires
a lot of maintenance is usually not the best for a teen (unless
she enjoys spending a large amount of time doing her hair).
There are some
great teen hairstyle ideas for short hair. Layered short hair can
create a spikey look when combined with a sculpting gel. The spikey
look is great for emphasizing highlights and frosted touches, but
it is best to have these added by a professional or to put on temporary
coloring. Simply work gel into freshly shampooed hair, blowdry the
hair and use a teasing comb or your fingers to create spikes. The
same hairstyle can look softer with a bit of mousse instead of gel
and by blowdrying the hair with a standard brush.
among teen hairstyle ideas is the bob. It is quite versatile, easy
to maintain and can be formal or casual, depending on how it is
styled. Your bob can be made completely straight with a sedu iron,
or curled at the bottom and around the bangs with a short-barrelled
curling iron. Bobs can have bangs or be styled in all-one-length
with funky hair jewelry to keep the side hairs from falling into
the face. A sleek bob can be an elegant look for prom. You will

Many teen hairstyle
ideas are designed to recreate the look of a popular celebrity.
The straight Jennifer Anniston look is "in" and is easy
to achieve, even for those with naturally curly hair. A sedu iron
is the best tool or creating super straight hair, and the best flat
irons have ceramic plates that minimize damage to the hair.

Of course, teen
hairstyle ideas should include great prom looks. Updos are quite
popular for the big evening, but they are not just for long hair.
If you hair is long enough to put in a small ponytail, you can create
a great updo. Even if your hair is shorter, you can get a matching
hair extension to make your hair appear longer.

Formal UpDos You Can Do
To create a
Reese Witherspoon-style chignon:
- Shampoo and
condition your hair the day before. Freshly-shampooed ponytails
are more difficult to work with
- Smooth your
hair back into a ponytail, making sure that the sides are smooth.
Use an elastic that is the same shade as your hair. Make sure
your ponytail is low, falling to the nape of your neck
- Divide your
pony into three sections. Curl each section with a curling iron.
Fasten with bobby pins until the curls cool
- Once the
curls are cool, brush out the curls lightly.
Take the pony and tuck it into the elastic
- Arrange your
chignon, and fix the sides of your hair. If you want them completely
smooth, spray your hair, or tease out a few tendrils and curl
them with a curling iron.
