How To Style It

If you do opt to play with your own short tresses, there are a few different ways you can create an updo for your hair.

For shorter hair that still has some length on the top, start by putting on the headband of your choice. You can then separate your hair into sections that are about 2 inches.

Create a loose twist and pin each of the sections towards the back of your head. This will give the appearance of your locks being pinned up.

Spray liberally with hairspray to ensure your updo stays in place.

Another fabulous updo created with the help of headbands can be worn to either a casual or dressy event.

  • Wash your hair with products designed for your hair type
  • Apply styling mud or gel throughout your hair with your fingers
  • Blow-dry while scrunching at the roots of your hair
  • Use a rattail comb to back comb your hair and add height
  • Put on the headband of your choice towards the middle of your head
  • Push the headband forward so you have some lift at the front
  • Use pins to clip sections from the back of your hair to your head
  • Or, use small elastics to create as many little ponytails around your head as you desire
  • Mist with plenty of hairspray for hold

The length of your locks does not have to hold you back from sporting a great updo. Headbands can be used to create an easy updo for short hair.
