Cutting my hair short has probably been one of the best decisions I have made. Not only is it easy to maintain, but it’s also been fun to style and experiment with different textures and trendy hair accessories. Recently, I’ve changed up my cut and went from the blunt bob to a layered look with a dashing face frame. I absolutely adore my new look and the volume this cut has given to my hair. Even though it sits right at my shoulders, I’ve found a few ways to pull it up or slick it back just like any other longer haircut.

Below are a few styles I have found that work really well with short hair! All of these hairstyles are some form of an updo that’ll elevate your style without taking up too much of your time. I strongly encourage playing around with different textures for each look. I found that loose curls worked well for me and gave each hairstyle volume and dimension.

Half Up Half Down


This look is the best of both worlds. If you can’t decide whether you want your hair up or down, why not do both? It is super chic and can work in both a casual or sophisticated scenario.

Messy Bun


Take your messy bun to a new level! Don’t care about styling your hair? Whip it up into a high messy bun, take your front stands out, and voila! You have a cool, voluminous updo in just seconds. Want to make it more elegant? Blow out your front strands for a more sleek appearance.

Low Ponytail


A high pony doesn’t always work well with short hair so we’re dropping it low and going with a low pony. Whether it’s slicked back or loose and wavy, this look is an easy go-to. To jazz it up, add some fun hair clips or leave out your front strands as I have done here!

Low Bun


Get snatched with this sleek low bun. You can either swirl the edges or gel it straight back. Either way, you have a sharp, street style look that just screams high fashion.

See ya later!
