Taming your teens tresses doesn’t have to be difficult. By teaching your teen some simple hair styles, you can empower her to transform her locks from lackluster to luminous. In addition, practicing these easy-to-do looks is a great way to spend quality time with your teen and play an active role in her life.
Create body-enhancing waves in your teen’s hair with some simple hot rollers or a large-barreled curling iron. Divide her hair into sections and wrap each around a hot roller or curling iron. Make these waves as tight or lose as you wish to create the pretty princess look your teen desires.
Give the standard ponytail a more hip twist by creating a messy ponytail. To create this look with your teen, either curl her hair and pull it into a ponytail, or gather her hair without the aid of a brush and secure it with a hairband. By doing this, you create a piece-y, messy look that is a bit more mature than the standard ponytail, yet still as effective in keeping your teen’s hair out of her face.
If your daughter seems loathe to dedicate time to doing her hair, suggest she get her hair cut into the latest variation of the bob cut. This shoulder-length hairstyle is easy to maintain, as your girl can simply curl the ends under or out with a large-barreled curling iron to create the flippy hairdo she desires.
Sleek and Straight
Help your teen produce a smooth and polished look with little effort by teaching her how to straighten her hair. Arm her with a flat iron, and show her how to divide her hair into sections and press each between the flat iron arms, starting at the scalp and moving down each lock to produce polished hair. If her hair is naturally prone to frizz, you may want to encourage her to use mousse to give the hair more holding power.
Provide a polished braid look with very little effort by French braiding your teen’s hair. To do a simple French braid, grab a chunk of hair from the crown of her head and divide it into three pieces. Start to do a simple braid. After moving two strands in your braid process, pull an additional chunk of hair from the left and add it to the hair piece that sits at the left of your already-started braid. Repeat the process on the right side. Then continue your braid, doing two more movements in your braid before again grabbing hair form the periphery. Continue this process until her locks are all secured in her stylish and sensible French braid.
