Read an Excerpt

This is a great time to be a teen. There are more products than ever, individuality is celebrated and accepted, and authenticity is admired. It's also more confusing. With more products, more choices, and fewer rules and guidelines, it's easy to slip from beauty into bimbo.

What's a girl to do? Should I go glam or stay natural? Do I really want to cut my hair? Why did I cut my hair! How do I cover up that zit? I can't go out like that. Why is my tummy so bloated? Am I expecting my period? These are the questions that start around nine or ten and keep going. They last right into your twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, and even longer, but teens have a certain category of beauty that is their very own. No one can appreciate it unless they are going through it. Every generation goes through its own set of beauty problems. Yet, some of these problems carry over from generation to generation-the parent struggle, the not knowing, and the feeling that no one else has ever felt this way.

Surveys have been conducted rating the top three concerns among girls eleven to sixteen. They are appearance, popularity, and self-esteem. Feeling good inside and looking good outside can make life a little easier. It helps by leveling the playing field. You can have fun with beauty, and you can take control of your looks. You and your body, you and your looks can actually become friends.

It is my hope that I have covered as much information as you will need for creating your own style, for feeling comfortable in your unique skin. It's information I certainly needed when I was a teen. I've been working with teen models for a long time and there are formulas and techniques that you can use even if you never step on a runway.

So enjoy the tips, and rather than letting them complicate your life, use them in a way that will bring fun and knowledge.
