Simply because updos are typically fashioned on longer hair does not imply there aren’t loads of options available for shorter hair. Short hair, can actually be interpreted in a number of other ways. Depending on the perspective, short hair length can range from the underside of the jaw all the best way as much as the highest portion of the ear.
The very first thing to figure out is if your hair could be put up right into a ponytail. If that is the case, then the options are infinite. Using curls is an effective way to add substance and volume to a shorter hairstyle. After you wet or wash your hair, run your fingers through it a few times. I do not recommend using a brush as this will damage delicate hair.
Once the hair is dry, take rollers to it. I like to recommend using smaller rollers on top and a few larger ones in the back. Apply the rollers when hot and leave in hair until they cool. Pull the curls in the back up into an updo and then arrange the strands in front as desired. A popular search for 2010 is styling whimsical soft curls parted to the side.
Braided updos for brief hair are also highly regarded hairstyles for 2010. Start with a side part pulling deep. On the larger section twist the hair into a brief French or Fishtail Braid about an inch or so from the part. The length of the braid in fact will depend in your individual hair length. Once you reach the top of the strands, take a hair pin and tuck under your hair.
On the other side, the second braid will start above your ear and end in about the identical location tucked a bit behind the ear. With shorter hair, accessories will be your best friend! Add a live flower or butterfly pendant to complete the elegant yet sophisticated look.
