When it comes to elaborate updos, those with above-the-shoulder strands seem to have gotten the short end of the stick (literally). While their Rapunzel-locked counterparts can twist, bun, braid, and pin to their heart’s content, short-haired girls face a much smaller pool of options. After all, how much can you really do when you’re working with the length of, say, a pixie? A lot, actually. For all our short-haired sisters out there, know this: You, too, can partake in the updo game. Keep scrolling for 10 cool bun, braid, and pinned-up ideas for short hair.
Who says short-haired girls can’t embrace braided crowns? Start a Dutch braid from the outer corner of your eyebrow, and work your way around your face and behind your ear.
