Updos For Short Hair: Everyday Look
An updo for short hair doesn't necessarily equal a complicated hairstyle, suitable only for formal events. On the contrary, you can pull a stylish day-to-day look by following some simple rules!
Start by applying styling mousse on your damp hair, then blow dry using a brush to straighten your locks. Apply styling wax or gel to your hands and rack your hair back. Add volume to your locks using a comb to tease the top layer.
Secure your locks on the back top of your head either with bobby pins or with an elastic band. Finish your updo for short hair with a stronghold hairspray and, optional, with a headband.
