Pretty party hair ideas for short hair
Half-up, half-down French braids
If you ask us, the best thing about this pretty party hairstyle is that it looks good from every angle: we’re talking front, back and sides. Better get practising on your plaiting skills, then! And don’t forget: a little bit of dry shampoo – try the TIGI Bed Head Oh Bee Hive! Dry Shampoo – will go a long way in giving those plaits grip and making sure they last all day!
Waves are universally flattering: they suit every hair type and look great on most lengths. But textured waves, well, they look positively fabulous on short hair (especially if yours is very fine or thin!). Why? Because they add texture, body and volume, meaning you’ll never see a limp and lifeless hair day again (hooray!).
Curls and headbands
What goes hand-in-hand with curls, we hear you ask? Oh, just the humble headband! This handy hair accessory will take your short hair from zero to hero in an instant – which is why this is one of our favourite party hair ideas on the list.
Slip it over your head after curling your hair, then fluff up your curls so that some of them fall nonchalantly over your headband.
Nothing screams party hair like the wet look, slicked-back style that seems to be the number one celeb favourite at the moment (just see Khloe Kardashian for proof!). While this edgy ‘do first made its debut on the Fashion Week runways, we’ve recently seen it on the heads of A-list celebrities and bloggers everywhere, and it’s now become our go-to, glam hairstyle.
