Cutting your hair short is always a hard decision. What are you going to be able to do with such little hair on your head? But never fret, there are many possibilities with short hair. Less to deal with makes it easier to deal with. Today I am going to show you 5 easy ways to style your short/medium length hair.
my hair go-to's
mini high pigtails
This is a super easy look that works with any hair length, but looks especially cute on short hair.
- section a small part of hair on the top of your head on one side
- gather into a pony tail
- tie with a clear elastic
- repeat on other side
and voila! You have cute mini pig tails. You can adjust the size of them to however you see fit, I like to use only a small amount of hair on either side.
Here is a side view!
This look is super easy to achieve! Just take your mini pigtails from the previous look, wrap them around into a bun, and bobby pin in place. It is a super cute look that also works with any hair length, but I find that it looks the best with short hair.
A front view. Aren't they adorable? They remind me of little ears.
What I love about this look is that it can really only be achieved with short hair. I have tried before when I had longer hair, and there is just too much to bobby pin up.
How to make it:
- section your hair into two halves
- dutch braid both sides of your head and tie with a clear elastic
- fan out the braids (pull them out a little bit so they look bigger or "fan" out)
- wrap bottom parts of braid around head and bobby pin in place
- pull out bits of face framers in front to soften the look
and there you go! I often use this looks for more formal occasions, but it is still super easy to do for every day, because it only takes around 15 minutes for short hair.
Here is a side view so you can see how the "fan" effect looks.
These messy pigtails take legit a minute to put up, and they are a super cute look for the day. I love to use this look when I want to keep my hair out of the way, but I also don't want to just throw it up in a pony tail. I often find that regular pigtails can get annoying, so by placing them in the back, it keeps them out of the way for the day.
- section hair into two halves
- pull halves into low pony tails at the back of your head and tie with an elastic
And you are done! Feel free to leave out face framers if you have them
Here is a front view! As you can see, I left out some face framers.
It is often hard to pull your hair to the side, or braid it when you have short hair because there are always ends sticking out. That is why I call this look the "Elsa", it is essentially a messy fishtail braid
How to make:
- make a deep side part
- gather hair in a ponytail (if it is easier, you can tie it with a clear elastic and cut it off later
- fishtail braid your hair
- do the same "fan" effect as on the milkmaid braids, but not too much!! It will pull out your hair very easily because it is not a continuous piece of hair
- tousle the top: pull out some face framers, add some hairspray/mouse/other products, etc.
You are done! This look is great for all you Disney lovers.
That concludes today's post! I hope it brought you some hair inspiration if you have short hair length, or are thinking about getting your hair cut. Don't think that getting your hair cut is the end of your style! As you can see, there are many possibilities when it comes to short hair.
