Square faces, like youth itself, are more versatile in what hairstyles they suit, while round-faced teenagers should avoid long, straight hair and stick to adding volume to the top of their head, with the help of some short layers, to create a more "oblong" illusion.
This advice is not limited to your teenage years and should stay with you as you move into middle age and beyond. Likewise, so should the texture of your hair. Hair that is limp and fine won't suddenly become full of life and vitality as soon as you turn 20! Cutting your hair according to its texture to maximize its appeal is a lifelong hairstyle practice.
Teenage Hair and Time Management
Generally speaking, teenagers have more time to attend to their hair than adults do. Although adolescents are usually intent on staying in bed until midday to avoid any household chores or put off a looming college assignment, when it comes to creating a flawless head of hair before they leave the house, many teenagers will dedicate a lot of time to accomplish this aspiration.
Nonetheless, there are also plenty of teenagers who, when push comes to shove, forego such self-pruning in favor of an extra few minutes in bed. Your personal preferences as to how much time you spend on your hair each day should be considered when choosing a hairstyle, which is again a consideration also deemed appropriate for adults.
Some Popular Hairstyles for Teenagers
• Shags
Appropriately named shags, these choppy, bouncy, and layered hairdos, which look great on long or short hair and are immensely easy to maintain, have been popular among teenagers for decades, and continue to be so. Shags never go out of style and exude a funky atmosphere of fun while maintaining an element of "coolness".

• Fringes and Bangs
Like the shag, teenagers who sport hair with a fringe or bangs exude sophistication and chic that is bound to generate classroom copycats. Blunt fringes are particularly popular amongst teenagers, as are bangs, which look particularly "cool" when swept to one side.
• Long Layered Hair
A teenage girl with long and luscious locks will always ignite feelings of jealousy from her female classmates and cause testosterone to run rampant with the males in the class. Long hair not only requires more maintenance than short hair, but also hair that is in very good condition.
Teenagers boasting less-than-perfect longer locks can boost their hair with a few layers, which will make the hair look in better condition, add volume, and help to enhance facial features.
• Freaky, Bold Colors
Quite literally, your teenage years are the only time when it is considered "acceptable" to experiment with some weird and wonderful hair colors. Shocking pinks, outrageous reds, and deplorable blues look great on those so young they can pull it off.
When you're a teenager, it feels like you're going to be one forever, but trust me, you're not. Youth doesn't last forever, so it's important to live it to the fullest, including your hair!
