The bob, the lob, the chop… short haircuts are hot! As cute and easy wearing these cuts are, a lot of women fear that they won’t have styling options if they loose length. While there is certainly less to work with, there are still ways to create a variety of ‘dos including pinned back fringe, half up styles, and updos. And don’t forget that adding accessories like embellished barrettes, bobby pins, and headbands is also a simple way to change up your look.
In this tutorial, I’ll show you an easy way to twist short hair into a cute, versatile updo. I used a rope braid technique for this style but you can easily switch it up with a French braid, Dutch (reverse French) braid, or fishtail braid. The key is to incorporate hair as you work, allowing you to braid shorter lengths and layers.
