Q:

Should frum girls have their ears pierced for earrings? 

A:

Why not? If the earrings are kosher to wear, why not? Probably Jewish women have the right to wear earrings like anybody else. When Rivkah was given nezamim by her chosson, it was because Hakodosh Boruch Hu wants to make the bride more attractive to the chosson. Why not? He wants people to get married; and even after they marry, He wants women to be attractive for their husbands. It’s a mitzvah for a woman to be attractive for her husband.

And therefore nothing can be considered as wrong if it is a matter of maintaining her appearance. Not for the street though. You don’t dress up for strange men. But to dress up for your own husband, absolutely.
