5 simple and easy hairstyle hacks for short hair


Yesterday, we showed you some simple and easy hairstyle hacks for long hair, but fear not short-haired ladies – we haven't forgotten you! 

If you think there is less you can do with your hair just because it is short, think again! 

Here are some simple and easy hairstyles you can easily do before work or college that will look cute and stylish. 

1. The fringe plait
This doesn't necessarily have to be a fish-tail braid like the one seen here on Carey Mulligan. To make things faster and easier – just do a regular plait! Plait your fringe along your hairline and back, gathering more hair as you go. When you've reached as far as you like, simply pin in place with a bobby pin and place some hair over the bobby pin. Done! 

2. The cute mohawk
If you have a pixie cut, it looks super cute to make some messy gather it and make a simple and trendy mohawk-ish 'do. Yes, you will need a lot of hairspray, but the name of the game is mess, so play with it a little!

3. The pop of colour
If you're not good with messing with bobbin, bobby pins and accessories – why not try putting a pop of colour in your hair? It is bound to be super trendy (unless you accidentally put in a purple rinse that is) and many of them are not permanent. 

4. The curled short bob
If you're stuck for time why not make like Taylor Swift and grab the curling tongs for a few moments. In no time at all you can create soft waves, like Taylor's before. Grab larger pieces of hair and wrap them around the tongs for a few moments until you're done. 

5. The high ponytail
Kelly Osbourne proves the high ponytail isn't just for those with long hair as she ties hers up in this cute pic. Simply gather your hair at the top of your head and secure with a bobbin. Cute and simple!
