Quick Easy Updo for Short Hair

When I had long hair I felt like I had a few easy options when my hair was dirty or unmanageable….top knot….ponytail….side bun. That is truly one of the most frustrating things about having short hair. I always feel like I have to do it. Well I figured this nice little “updo” out one day and I got quite a few compliments on it. It is a great go to when my hair might be a little bit dirty or lying funky.

I started this look by doing a quick rendition of my Loose Curls for Short Hair  style (I only bothered doing the top layer).  Then it is REALLY simple from there!

Hope you find this helpful! I love having this look in my back pocket for those days when I need to run out the door and don’t have time to blow dry my hair. xoxo-Christie

    Really cute!  My hair is that awkward not so short, but not long enough stage either.  I like this idea a lot.:)
