So, are you looking for some Easter dinner hair inspiration? Or do you have a wedding coming up? Or maybe you just have shorter hair and are looking for some new ways to style it. Either way – we’ve got you covered. Watch our tutorial below or keep scrolling down for a step-by-step guide on how to achieve all 5 short hairstyles.
#1: Messy Bun
This look is ideal when you should’ve been out the door 5 minutes ago but still want to look effortlessly put together.
1. Before styling your hair, leave a few pieces to frame the front of your face as this will help create a more effortless and messy look.
2. Gather the rest of your hair to the back of your head and create a low ponytail. Run your hands through the top of your hair to loosen everything up – this will also help create more volume at the base of your ponytail.
3. Secure your ponytail with a clear hair elastic, and on your third loop pull your hair through only half-way.

#2: Braided Updo
Although this look takes a bit more time to create, the end result is worth it. If you like braids and updos, you have to try this hairstyle out.
1. Split your hair into two equal halves and braid each section into a dutch braid. Not sure how to do it? We’ll help you out – here’s a tutorial showing how.
2. To create the illusion of a thicker braid, pull out sections of the braid a bit to loosen it up.
3. Once styled to the way you like, take one of the braids and wrap it around to the other side of your head. Flip the ends of your braid underneath the other braid, and secure in place with a few bobby pins.
4. Repeat the same step with the other braid, and play around with the top of your hair and face framing pieces to complete the final look.
#3: Texturized Loose Curls
If you’re on second or third day hair and are trying to stretch it one more day, try out these texturized loose curls – it’s a great hairstyle and tip to adding more movement and volume to your hair.
1. Take a curling wand and loosely curl medium-sized chunks of hair. Be sure to go back and forth between curling towards and away from your face to create a more dimensional look.
2. To ensure you still have length in your hair, it’s best to leave about an inch of hair uncurled at the ends, as curling tightens the hair and gives the illusion of shorter hair (unless, of course, that is the look you would like to go for).
3. Complete the look by spraying dry texturized spray throughout your curls to add more movement to your hair.

#4: Hat + Curls
We know, we know. This one technically isn’t a hairstyle, but we had to share this tip for hiding roots or greasy hair.
1. This is more of a tip than a hairstyle, but for those who are in the midst of growing out your hair and have roots, or have really greasy 2nd to 3rd day hair, we recommend to throw on a hat of your choice to help conceal any problem areas. This trick looks especially good with the Texturized Loose Curls hairstyle!
#5: Twist Ponytail with Scarf
If you want to accessorize your hairstyle, a scarf is such a unique and beautiful accessory, especially for Spring. It pairs beautifully with this twist ponytail look.
1. Leave face framing pieces aside for a more chic look.
2. Gather the hair to the back of your head and create a low ponytail. Flip the ponytail through the middle section of your hair to create a twist effect.
3. Go in and pull out the twist in order to loosen it up and create more volume in the area.
4. Grab a scarf of your liking and wrap it from the bottom of your head and upwards and secure in a knot at the top of your head. You can hide the edge scarf pieces by simply tucking them in underneath the scarf.
