Even with short hair, you can style your hair in different ways. You may not have long, cascading locks, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with different hairstyles. In fact, styling short hair is just as exciting as braiding or tying long hair. In this tutorial, we’re going to show you how to style short hair for everyday wear. These hairstyles are easy and practical, and you can wear them wherever you are, whether you’re staying home or going out. Ready? Here we go.

Half updos are great for short and medium-length hair. They’re also great for everyday wear. If you’re looking for a half updo for you bob or lob, try the twisted half ponytail. Here’s how to do it.

1

Prep your hair

If you feel that your hair is not thick enough to be styled, we recommend using Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo and Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Conditioner to make your hair soft and bouncy. With these products, you can say goodbye to flat and limp hair.

2

Gather your hair

Clip the upper section of your hair near your crown. Use a claw clip to secure your hair in place.

3

Tie your hair

Take one section of hair from the left and right sides and tie them with clear elastics.

4

Loop the hair inward

Invert the tied sections and flip them to create twists. Secure them in place.

5

Remove the jaw clip

Once you’ve unclipped the top section of your hair, tie it using an elastic.

6

Add volume

Pinch small sections of hair upward to make your hairstyle look fuller.

7

Spray

Maintain your hair’s shape with a little help from TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray.

8

Pin it

Secure your hairstyle with bobby pins discreetly placed on your hair.

#Tip: To create a more polished look, make sure to hide the elastic by wrapping a small section of hair around it.

9

All done!

How do you like your ‘do? With your short hair styled this way, you’re going to look neat and presentable wherever you are. 

You can also put your short hair in an updo like the messy chignon hairstyle. Here’s how to easily create this ‘do.

1

Section your hair

Start with hair that you’ve curled using a curling iron. Then, divide your curled hair into left, right, and back sections. Use a duckbill clip to hold the left and right sections.

2

Create a low ponytail

Tie the back section with a clear elastic.

3

Invert the hair

Create a small gap above the elastic, flip your ponytail, and insert the hair into this hole.

4

Gather the right and left sections

Remove the clips. Then, gather the right and left sections of hair and tie them together with a clear elastic.

5

Hide the tied sections

Hide the tied sections by inserting them into the loop.

6

Create a low bun

Roll your hair upward to create your chignon hairstyle. Secure it with bobby pins.

#Tip: Gently pull the top section to add volume and create a messy effect.

7

Spray

Keep your chignon in place by spritzing TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray all over your hair. Make sure to hold the bottle 10 cm away from your hair so the mist is distributed evenly.

8

Done!

Now, you’ve successfully put your short hair up. A messy chignon is great for casual days when you got nothing planned except for staying indoors. And because you only need bobby pins, elastics, and a few spritzes of hairspray, you can create this hairstyle any time you like.

These two are just among the many hairstyles you can try. Feel free to be creative and experimental with how you style your short hair, and most importantly, have fun with it. Share this tutorial with your friends so they, too, can try these hairstyles.
