65 Easy Natural Hairstyles For Teenage Black Girls

(Last Updated On: February 17, 2022)

Middle school and high school are important milestones in any teenager’s life. They should not have to worry about their hair on top of all the other things that’s going on in their social and academic life.

This is why this article will be providing many hairstyles ideas that are appropriate for pre-teens and teenagers. Some of these hairstyles are easy to do that your teenage daughter can replicate the hairstyle herself, which gives you time to style her little sister’s hair and/or focus on other things you have going on.

What are easy hairstyles for black teenage girls?

Of course, a ponytail is probably the easiest hairstyle for teenage girls to do, but that’s no fun at all! If you must style your hair into a ponytail, show off your creativity, and add some braids, twists, or beads.

Speaking of braids, there are many types of braids that are easy for teenage girls to do. Back in the day, some of us would get made fun of for our cultural hairstyles, but it’s great to see the newer generations embracing their natural hair and cultural hairstyles.

A lot of them are so easy that any teenager can do them. Buns are also easy hairstyles to do as long as you don’t make them too tight or leave them in for too long.

It’s vital to remember to switch out our hairstyles and give our hair a break once in a while.

What are some of the best back-to-school hairstyles?

The back-to-school hairstyle is the most important style in a teenager’s life, after the prom hairstyle. I’m sure we all remember getting our hair straightened, relaxed, braided, or even dyed. Now, we’re passing on the tradition to the new generation.

However, we should let them choose their own style. They deserve the chance to express themselves and not have styles forced onto them that they might not want. There are many great options below that would be perfect for a back-to-school style.

Share it with your teenager and let them choose the style that speaks to them the most. There are all kinds of styles below, like braids, wigs, puffs, wash, and gos, etc.

What are some styles for teenage girls with natural hair?

There are so many natural hairstyles below that a teenager will love. Whether it’s a puff or afro puffs, twist-outs, and braids outs, or even a simple wash and go, they have so many options to choose from.

It’s beautiful and inspiring that young girls are already in love with their hair when it took so many adults a long time to get to that place. More and more, I’m noticing that teenagers want to just let their hair do it’s own thing.

They don’t have to rock a weave, or braids if they don’t want to. There’s nothing wrong with these styles either, but sometimes you just want to put your hair back and call it a day.
