Whoever said that you can’t do much with short hair is wrong, and these three gorgeous hair tutorials totally prove it. Whether you want to spice up your everyday hair styling routine or seek something more intricate for a special occasion, these ideas will fit the bill.
You won’t guess the hair length when it’s done – and who’d think you can make a solid updo on such short hair? Also, it won’t take you more than 5-10 minutes.
Start with spraying a good amount of texturizing product all over your hair. You can also backcomb it a little bit for a better hold. Next, make a low ponytail and pull the hair band towards the ends. Then gently twist the ponytail and tuck the ends of your hair into a roll. Use some pins to secure the French twist. We recommend using bobby pins as those are firmer than regular pins.
If you want to make sure none of the short hair at the bottom gets loose, make two ponytails on top of one another. You can then twist and roll each of them, letting them join in the middle. This will give you more control over the top part as well. It will help to create a more cohesive and neat shape. Finally, pull out some strands from each side for a more relaxed look.
This easy updo would work even for very short hair. First, backcomb the crown area to give your hairstyle some volume, then take all the hair from above your ears and make a ponytail. Those small clear elastic bands are the easiest to hide, so we recommend having a few of those for any occasion.
Twist your ponytail upwards and hide the ends of your ponytail inside the created roll. Some bobby pins will help to secure it in place. Then take all the remaining hair at the bottom and repeat the same actions: make a ponytail, twist it, and pin it with a couple of bobby pins. Finish your hairstyle with a pair of slides or any other accessories to cover the pins.
If your hair at the bottom is too short to put up, you can style the top part and have a half-up half-down style instead of a full updo.
If you think your hair is too short for a claw clip, then… maybe it’s not. Try this easy hack: make two ponytails, one in the middle and the other one low enough to get hold of the shortest hair at the bottom. Then put a claw clip on top of both ponytails and tuck the ends of the ponytails in to create volume.
Clips with a good grip are the best for this updo. Also, you might want to slightly tease the ends of the ponytails to keep the hair together and get some extra volume.
These three stunning hair tutorials prove that short hair is far from limiting when it comes to styling options. Whether you’re looking to elevate your everyday look or dazzle at a special occasion, these tutorials offer simple yet sophisticated solutions for short hair styling. So go ahead, unleash your creativity, and embrace the versatility of short hair with confidence and flair!
