A cute teen girl has a lot of options when it comes to hairstyles. It is at this age when a girl can freely experiment with almost any style.

Alternative short haircuts, including the more experimental styles, reveal facial features which are otherwise partially concealed by a longer haircut. With feminine features and a well-proportioned face, a teen girl can play with many different short and messy hair styles.


A bob cut passes as the little black dress in hair styles. It can fall to the shoulders or just below the ear. It is versatile in a sense that it can look good with a casual outfit as well as with a nighttime getup without the need to style it differently. For a messy look, simply curl sections of the hair and run your hands through it. Set it with a styling mousse for a light and easy look.

Boy Cut

The boy cut is for the more adventurous girl, with bold cuts and shapes which draw attention to the eyes and facial shape. A teen girl will be able to pull this style off and play with different styling techniques to transition from preppy to casual to glamorous. It's a wash-and-wear do that requires minimal styling. Simply use your hands to comb through the hair to come up with an out-of-bed look.

For the emo or punk look, cut the hair up to your ears and create long fringe that fall on the face. Complete the look with dark eye make-up.


A pixie cut has almost the same length as a boy cut but with distinct layers. It is another edgy alternative to the classic bob and also draws the eye to your facial features. It can require more styling than other short haircuts, especially since the layers look better when they are messy and stick out from the head. Styling products such as gels and hair colour will accentuate the structure and layers of a pixie cut hair.

A short hair style can give an edgy but classic, messy but feminine look for a girl. There are different styling products such as mousse and colour and a pool of inspiration from celebrities and professional hair stylists that can help you create the perfect style.
