When you have short hair, there’s not a lot you can do with it, right? Wrong! Even though short hair is super low maintenance and doesn’t seem to be able to offer much in terms of styling, you can still create amazing looks.
How about braids? Braiding short hair sounds virtually impossible, but there are a few ways to do it. Here are some types of braids you can try on your short, chic locks.
Like the name implies, these braids are constructed around your head and provide the illusion of longer locks. You can do this braid even with chin-length hair or hair that is long enough to be divided in two and braided into double plaits in order to complete the crown braid.
If you have experience braiding hair, or if you want to try something different, you can create s-shaped or zig-zag braids that travel down the back of your head in curves or corners. You might have to practice for a while to accomplish this style of braid but the results are worth it.
This is a good style for shoulder length hair. Work the braid from one ear to the other instead of up to down. You can tuck the braid tale under the braid to make the style appear cleaner and more accomplished.
Double upside-down braids
This is a cute, quirky style that looks great on short hair. Make two braids on either side of a centre part from the bottom up and tuck the tails under the braid or curl them around on the top.
To smooth down those annoying little bits of hair that tend to stick out you can apply some gel or another holding product to keep the braid polished and glossy. Good luck!
