Milk Maid Braids
Your tween can achieve this cute braided style by parting the hair on the side or in the middle and French-braiding the hair from the front of the hair to the back in the shape of a crown. The braids can be held in place with bobby pins and completed with a cute ribbon or barrette.
This is one of the tween girl hairstyles that give the hair body and bounce and frames your tween’s oval or heart-shaped face perfectly. You’ll need a large-barrel curling iron or flat-iron for this style. Part the hair into small sections and wrap each section around the heat styling tool to form a spiral. Create curls all around the head and complete the style with a sparkly or brightly colored headband. Spiral curls are ideal for medium-length and long hair.
If your tween has a round or heart-shaped face, this is one of the tween girl hairstyles that are pretty stylish. This short cut can be fun and whimsical, and the longer the cut is, the more age-appropriate it is. Soft layers in the front of the face give the style texture and character, and the sides and back of the hair should be slightly tapered to make the style look neat. The front of the hair can be worn to the side and secured with a decorative bobby pin for special occasions.
This braided hairstyle is a modern version of the French braid and can be worn to the back or side. After forming the hair into a French braid, loosen the braid slightly with your fingers to make it look especially carefree. Taking a few hairs from the side of the head and curling them slightly makes the style frame the face, and a side bang completes the look.
The bob is ideal for a tween with an oval or oblong face. Giving the bob a wavy texture makes these tween girl hairstyles especially youthful. For younger girls, long bobs are best and should fall right above the shoulders. A large-barrel curling iron can create the wavy texture that gives this style body. A headband or decorative barrettes can be worn on the sides of the hair to make them look especially girly.

Finally, most tweens look great in ponytails. Girls with rounder faces should wear these tween girl hairstyles in the middle of their heads, while tweens with oval faces look great with ponytails positions toward the tops of their heads. This hairstyle is particularly attractive if you use a flat iron to create curls in the ponytail and keep the curls in place with a medium-hold hairspray. A small section of hair can be wrapped around the ponytail to give the style a little more character.
