So, it’s summer and no one likes all that hair hanging down their back. Chopping off your hair short is surely a bold move. But then, it is not always easy to style it. For instance, pulling off an up-do would definitely be a challenge. So, we’ve made a list of a few hair-dos that you could totally pull off with short hair. Read on to know.
For this one, it’s best if you have curly or wavy hair. If you don’t, not a problem. You could rock it either way. One tip to keep in mind is that you could get the look by braiding your hair before going to bed the previous night. Begin by parting your hair, either to the middle or the side. Now, grab a portion of hair at the front on one side and start doing a braid. Braid till the back of your head, adding hair as you go further. Repeat the same on the other side. Secure both of these with an elastic and you’re done!
This would be an ideal hair-do if you’re leaning towards a messy look. To start off with, grab the front portion of your hair and tie it up. Now, take a section of hair on the crown of your head, hold it up and comb on it downwards. Take the remaining hair and tie these two portions of hair into a bun. Now, free the front section of your hair, and do a braid on either side and wrap it around till the back of your head and pin it there.
French Braids and Bun
The bun with French braids is a classy look that you could wear for a party or any event. Start by parting your hair to the side. Now, section hair off at the back to save it for the bun. Take a portion of hair at the front on the bigger side and do a French braid till the end. Repeat the same on the other side. Tease the hair on your crown and tie a ponytail with the rest of your hair. Pin the hair from the ponytail to the sides to create a bun, take both braids and tuck them under the bun.
Two Dutch Braids
This is pretty easy if you know how to do the Dutch braid. For those of you who don’t know what a Dutch braid is, it’s a three-stranded braid where you’ll be crossing the strands underneath instead of crossing them over from the top and you keep adding sections of hair as you proceed. So, take a section of hair at the front and do a Dutch braid. Take another section a little away from the first one and do another one. Pin the ends of these two a little away, under some hair, so you can conceal the bobby pins.
The Twisted up-do is the easiest one on the list and it hardly takes any time to do one. If you’re running late to some formal occasion, this is the one you should go for. Begin by parting your hair. Then, take a section of hair at the front on one side and twist it all the way till the back of your ear. Once you do, secure it there with a few bobby pins. Do the twist on the other side of your hair and gather the remaining hair and roll it up and tuck it at the back of your head.
