If you have let your hair grow for a few years, you are a lucky teenager. You get to wear cute long hairstyles for teens as you head into high school or off to college. Long hair takes special care to stay looking healthy. Plan extra time in your beauty schedule to style your long haircut. Don't forget to get your hair trimmed every couple of months to get rid of split ends.

Long Layers

Long layers are a favourite look for long, straight hair. They frame your face and show off your silky locks at the same time. Twist the ends of your hair with a straightening iron (not a curling iron) to achieve a gentle curve at the ends of your hair.

According to a 2007 study conducted by Jean-Baptiste Masson at the Polytechnique Institute in France, straight hair tangles more easily than curly hair. Brush your hair starting at the ends and work your way up to gently detangle your hair without breaking the strands.

Curls & Bangs

Naturally curly hair can be difficult to handle when it is long. Find a moisturising conditioner designed for your hair texture. Add a curl-enhancing cream while your hair is still damp. If your hair is straight, expect to spend at least an hour curling a full head of long hair.

Add straight fringe to this long teen hairstyle if your face is long or if you want a girlish look. This hairstyle lends itself to fashionably upswept looks. Invest in some embellished hair combs for a sophisticated touch.

Tousled Waves

If you have naturally wavy hair, a long hairstyle looks effortlessly glamorous. For a windblown effect with defined waves, spritz your hair with salt water. Style it with your fingers as it dries. Consider sideswept fringe that blend into the rest of your hair. That way, you don't have to bother with trimming or straightening your fringe.

To relax curly hair into waves, blow-dry it with a diffuser set on a low heat. If you have straight hair, braid it overnight to achieve a similar effect.

Tightly curled or kinky hair lends itself to locking. Dreadlocks are a unisex style that works for guys and girls. You can lock your hair yourself, but reaching the sections in the back can be difficult.

Find an experienced friend to help you with this style. Or go to a stylist who specialises in ethnic hairstyles. Once the locking is done, this look doesn't require much styling. For a feminine effect, tie your dreads in a high ponytail at the back of your head.

Teen Boy

Teenage boys aren't left out when it comes to long hair. These styles are quite popular and are no longer considered "girly" by most people. For an intellectual look, try a chin-length haircut and tuck your hair behind your ears.

Choose asymmetrical razor-cut fringe for a trendier effect. If you have curly hair, experiment with different lengths and layers to find one that frames your face perfectly.
