As young girls reach their teen years they often become more fashion conscious and like to keep up with trends, including hairstyles. For special occasions--like holidays or proms--or in hot summer months, many girls choose to wear an updo. Whether your teen has a special event or just wants to stay cool, easy updo hairstyles for teens can be created in a number of formal or casual designs.
Hump Style With Cascading Curls
Teens with curly hair can sport a hump style updo that shows off her spiral locks. Apply a moderate amount of gel or mousse to towel-dried hair. Create a section on top about 6-square-inches wide from your forehead to crown, temple to temple, and secure it forward for later styling. Using your fingers, push the side of the hair back and secure with hair clips or a banana clip and gently arrange your curls to conceal the accessories. Use a large round brush to pull the front-top section forward and blow dry it straight. Lightly tease and comb over the area to create a "hump" and tuck the loose ends into the curls--concealing them--and secure with a hair clip.
Quick Messy Updo
A quick messy updo hairstyle is simple for teens to achieve on their own and adds casual elegance to any style. Use a hairbrush to remove all knots and tangles and brush your hair back and away from your face. For extra fullness you may opt to lightly tease and comb over the top section. Lean back and lightly run your fingers through your hair to secure a loose ponytail just below the crown. Loosely wrap the length of your hair around the hairband and secure it with a hair clip. Finish with a light mist of hairspray.
The French Twist is a classic hairstyle that is simple to create and allows for custom variations to enhance your teen's personal style. Comb the hair back--as if you were making a ponytail--and secure it to one side with hair clips just off centre at the back of her head. Use one hand to hold the pinned area in place while twisting the length of the hair inward and upward creating a tight twist to conceal the pins. Secure the twist by adding hair clips that are concealed within the seam and tuck the loose ends in at the top. This style can be worn off of the forehead or with fringe and loose wispy strands framing her face.
