7. Half up with side twists
This half-up, half-down look is cute and easy to achieve. Simply grab the section of hair on one side of your head and begin twisting it toward the back of your head. Continue until you reach the back and pin it in place using bobby pins. Repeat the process on the other side. Allow the rest of your hair to hang down.
8. Side bun
Classy hairstyles for tweens include the side bun. Start by pulling your hair into a low side ponytail just behind the bottom of one of your ears. Then, wrap your hair around the base of the ponytail to create a bun. Use as many bobby pins as necessary to hold it in place. Consider adding a pretty hair clip with a flower to elevate the look even further.
9. Classic French braid
You can’t go wrong with a classic French braid. This is another hairstyle that works well for second or third-day hair since it doesn’t matter if your hair is a little bit limp and greasy.
10. Dutch braids
Braid hairstyles for tweens don’t stop at the classic French braid. Try Dutch braids next. If you know how to French braid, this will be no problem. Simply put, you are braiding underneath rather than over. The look is similar to the iconic character on the Swiss Miss cocoa package.
If you have short hair, spiking it is always an option. This look works for both guys and girls. Invest in a good hair gel. Opt for an extreme-hold version so that your style will last all day. Then, simply spike your hair up to create a fun, edgy look.
