When it comes to hairstyles, the internet is practically full of tutorials for women with long hair. Does this leave you feeling dejected because you have short or shortish hair and don’t know what to do with it? If you have short hair and are under the impression that you always have to wear it down, you are wrong. There are several updos you can try out! What’s more, these updos will give you the confidence to experiment more and more with your hair. Here are a couple of popular updos for short hair you can try out for yourself.
The poofy bun
This is a twist to the ballerina bun and a very classy one at that. It works out great on people with short hair. All you need to do is take out the front section of your hair and keep it clipped. Next you make a high pony tail with the rest of your hair. Divide this ponytail in two equal sections. Take one section, apply some gel onto it and backcomb it. Now twist it around and pin it up at the back. Do the same with the other section and wrap it around the first twist from the opposite direction. Once this is done, work with the front section of your hair. Backcomb it and flip it back giving it a little volume. If you like a slightly messy look, you can let it remain the way it is, else you can apply some gel around your bun to tuck in the little strands of hair. This hairstyle is great because it actually gives the impression that your hair has a lot of volume and is perfect for the summer look.
The braided updo
This one is really simple as well and works well on those who have short hair. Before you begin, make sure your hair is dry and ready to work with. Make a parting in the centre of your hair and start braiding right from the middle of your forehead into the middle of each section. Make sure all those little strands that jut out from your bangs are tucked in neatly too. Repeat the same with the other side of your hair. Once both braids are done, use pins to secure them in near the nape of your neck. The front part of your hair is looking awesome enough already. What you do with the remaining hair at the back is roll it up neatly and tuck it in with each section. Just this, and you’re good to go! Not only is it a great updo for short hair, it will give you a vintage look.
As you can find from these hairstyles, not only are these updos great for short hair, they can be worked out in less than five minutes! So stop beating yourself up if you have short hair, and forget about sporting a ponytail day after day! There is no end to the fun you can have with your hair!
