As often as we post hair tutorials we get requests for short hair ideas. Today, we've pulled together a few of our favorite, simple hair ideas for ladies with shorter hair. Enjoy! 1. Separate your hair into three ponytails. 2. Using bobbypins, twist and pin the ponytail into a small bun. 3. Repeat this process with each ponytail for a completed look!
1. Take a small section of hair at the front of your hair line (or directly behind your bangs). 2. Twist a piece inward all the way to the end of the strand and pin in place. 3. Then, taking another section directly beneath the first, twist it and pin it back over the first twist so that both are secure. 4. Done!
1. Begin by teasing at the root of your hair on the top of your head. 2. Flip your hair back over and fluff it with your fingers. 3. Next, pin back your bangs underneath the teased section. 4. Then, take the teased section and wrap it around your finger, creating a tube. 5. Turn your finger to the side and pin the tube like section in place. 6. Finish by tugging on small sections at the top to create a fuller looker.
Take a section at the front of your hairline, twist into a small bun, and pin in place. 2. Repeat this process three times, twisting in different directions.

ETA: Haha! So many comments correcting our use of the word "short". Ok, ok… it's medium hair. You're right.
This hair tutorial was created in collaboration with Sarah Chapman, a professional hair stylist at Blu Skies Hair Studio in Springfield, Missouri. If you're local, give her a call!
I just tried the last one to day, awesome. lots of compliments!
Thanks for posting these! I adore the look of the last one… but anybody care to help me figure out how to do it? 😡 I an’t seem to twirl it into a mini-bun at the top of my head, there’s nothing to support it unlike at the nape of my neck!
My hair is about this length and I never know what to do with it! Thanks 🙂
My current fave (btw my hair is almost exactly like this..) is to do a tiny little braid from a side parting and to pin it in place at the side – so cute with a 70’s vibe xx
love this! could you do one for curly gurls?
My hair’s super hurly and a bit shorter than the pictures, but I’m still going to try the second one!
These styles are lovely. I need some styling! Thanks so much for sharing!
THANK YOU! I just got all my hair chopped off and had no idea what to do with it. This morning I tried the third style and I love it 🙂
The hairstyles look so cute and I would love to try them, but I’m sooo bad at “pining hair in place”. Do you have any tips on the pinning part? Which pins do I use and how do I place them so they don’t fall out after a minute? (:
I have that lenght and i love to braid my hair in different ways 🙂
Thanks! These are lovely and seem like they won’t take very much time.
I would like to see some tutorials for even shorter hair. My hair is about as short as a boys hair, and it’s hard to find new ways to style it. 🙂
Wow! Wanna try the last one. It’s really adorable!
Yaaaay! I definitely needed this!
I have naturally curly hair, so typically hair ideas like this aren’t even an option for me. But I tried the first one and am thrilled with the way it turned out – I’d even go so far as to say it looks better on curly hair than on straight! Curly girls, give it a try!
Thank you for this post! I have short hair and it’s so hard to get creative with it, since I had long hair for almost all my life. I will try them all and see. The first one looks so nice.
This is such a great idea, because so often you see people with long hair tutorials but never really short hair ones.
Really like the first one. Think ill be trying that.
Thanks so much for sharing! I tend to get my hair to shoulder length and then cut it off super short again (I’ve shaved it once or twice), but this time I’m on the search for ways to keep it exciting. This is just perfect!
