What is it about teen hairstyles that make them so different from any other styles? Nothing is the answer to this question. There is no difference, in fact there is no such thing as a teen hairstyle. When have you ever heard a young girl/boy going into a hair salon and asking the hair stylist to give them a teen hairstyle? A teen hairstyle is simply a particular style that young teenagers sport because it is the latest trendy hairstyle. So the next time you hear a youngster asking for a teen hairstyle you will know they are asking for a particular style that other teens are raving over.
Nonetheless girls and boys if you want to call a particular hairstyle a "teen" one, then so be it. The bob haircut, layers, ringlets, bangs, pony tail even braids are all styles deemed fitting for a teenager as long as they are in fashion.
Teens are always on the lookout for the latest cool trendy teen hairstyle to match their desired fashion, and a fabulous way of finding what's hot on the scene is to browse magazines or to go online. Everything you could possibly want to know about hair is there.
good thing about haircuts these days is that there individualized. Hair
today is styled around face shapes. This is to assure that your
specific desire will suit and flatter. Unfortunately in the case of most
teens face shape is not taken into consideration, which is a bad move.
The average teen tends to look more to following suit of their friends
or favorite celebrity before that of what suits their face.
teen styles can include all sorts of styles but if money is tight then
remember curls never go out of fashion. If you have straight hair then
you should consider having a perm for longer lasting curls. This option
sure beats sitting for hours with your hair in curlers with no guarantee
of the desired size of curl happening if the curlers are not left in
long enough. It also has you avoid the wrist ache from holding curling
tongs. Get advice on perms first because healthy hair can suffer damage
from perm solutions. Avoid hairstyles that might involve high
maintenance. After all you're a teen and you haven't the time "right."
Go for spiral curls on long hair.
The way the hair is worn can
change your appearance dramatically, now wouldn't it be nice for any
change to be one of dramatically beautiful. Proper styling can add the
right angles to your face and tone down any hardness your face might
otherwise express. There are countless different teen hairstyles to
choose from that can do this. There are short, long, straight, medium
and curly hairstyles, but for them to work with facial features your
face shape has to be considered.
Before making a decision on a
style or cut you must pre-consider some things. Things like the
lifestyle you lead. Your hairstyle needs to be compatible with this
regardless of age. For instance: if you are an active person and enjoy
sports then opt for a short hairstyle, it makes sense.
to that all important issue - the shape of your face. Once this is
established your hairdresser will highlight the most essential features
while emphasizing on how the hairstyle will make your face pretty. The
right hairstyle will minimize problem features you're not comfortable
with. The three kinds of face shapes - round, long and square and teen
hairstyles vary according to these face cuts. Keep hair to shoulder
length without any parting if your face is round. This will lengthen
your face. While this may be a good thing it can also give a show of
hardness. To beat this, choose a soft hairstyle that impels gentleness.
If short hair is not for you and you have a square face then straight
shoulder length hair flicking towards the ends will suit.
favored teen hairstyles are the ones the teenager doesn't have to spend
too much time on. Teenagers are busy people and need a style they can
manage quickly. Youngsters need to pick a hairstyle that reflects
"their" personality and not the personality of their favorite film or TV
star. Just because the way they wear their hair makes them look
fabulous is no guarantee that you will look this way too.
The pony tail has been in fashion since I can remember and still going strong. It's an easy style to manage
angled bob hairstyle is hugely craved over. The hair is kept longer in
the front to frame the shape of the face. It is a hairstyle easily
angled so it allows freedom for you to change the style when you want.
bangs hairstyle is suitable for the round/square face. If you want to
highlight the cheekbones while giving them a toned down look then blunt
bangs is the style for you.
The razor cut bob is a style where hair rests on the shoulders. Side parts and zigzag effects make this style very alluring.
the soft wedge haircut for the youthful look. It is a popular style as
it suits most face shapes. It's a style that is soft and smooth because
of layering and texture. The soft wedge cut adds volume so more ideal
for the person with fine hair.
Bangs are all the rage and
fashionable so why not go for the dimensional shag. The hair is cut and
styled with fringes and bangs. It's a versatile cut layered with long
hair on top and short hair underneath.
Male hairstyles include -
Buzz Cut, Faux-Hawk, Classic Hairstyle, Crew Cut, Clipper Cut and Fade
Cut. Faux-hawk is also called the Mohawk. The cut includes the side's
shaven and hair left longer in the middle. This style was popular in the
80s however still a haircut styled today.
supposedly give off a certain look. Long hair is perceived as being
feminine and sexy whereas short hair is seen as being sporty and/or
business like. But rarely seen as sexy, I am afraid I disagree. Sexiness
has nothing to do with the hair. It is you the individual responsible
for this. Hair is only part of the sexy package trailing behind "pouted
painted lips and the way you wiggle that butt." Between both the lips
and butt I don't think an amorous admirer will even care how you're hair
A good hair stylist is one that understands what you want, but more importantly can give you what you want.
