Putting up with Medium/Short Hair.

by mrsaliwear

One of my secrets to growing out short hair has been wearing my hair “up”. A lot of girls don’t realize that they can and SHOULD pin their hair back while growing it out. One it is usually far more flattering on your face shape and two it provides variety while trying to grow out your hair.

This look was achieved by curling the top layer of short hair and then putting on a scarf – tease as needed and hair spray!!!

This is a great and easy look to get when you have short hair – and it changes it up! Just grab a bobby pin, twist and pin!

The above picture it to show length – this is still considered short hair – it is not a bob and it was shorter in the back.It’s a semi-“A-line”. The pictures below are some looks I did with this length.

(A braided front – also similar to the twist with the pixie).

Simple sides pulled back and pinned – bangs stay down.

All hair pulled back – top and sides – away from face. You can still see my back is short here, but from the front it looks like an updo.

Here my hair is much longer but I curled it to add texture and then braided the front.

Middle part, all pulled back – creates the illusion of long hair in an updo.

Same look as above – just to show again! It is easy and fast – I did it in the hospital after having my daughter šŸ™‚

This time all of it’s pinned back since it is longer in the back at this point – I have a side bang out though.

Inside out braid on both sides and then pinned in the back – the back is super messy in the above picture but who cares!

This is an all over “wreath” braid – it is done around the whole head and can be done on shorter hair. It is a more advance style but again I have it on here to show variety.

This style can be duplicated by curling all over, and then sloppily pinning back small sections to be met in the back. I will be posting a tutorial of this technique in the near future.

Another example of “wreath” braid (my hair was no longer than chin length).

Longer version of pinning it all up with a side bang.

Sloppy pulled back bun. Hair is just shoulder length.

Messy natural wave and curls – all pulled back in a short ponytail.
