Saying goodbye to braids, ponytails, and buns is one reason that makes cutting off all of your hair so terrifying. But if getting a trendy short haircut makes you nervous because you think you’ll be limited on how you can style your hair, breathe a sigh of relief: You don’t need Rapunzel-length hair to wear it up.
With a little bit of creativity, the updo options for shorter hair can be endless. Plus, since you’re working with less length, a updo for short hair can actually be less time-consuming than doing one on long hair. Just take some of the red carpet looks created by top celebrity hairstylist as examples. Case in point: Tessa Thompson’s pinned-up curls and Lucy Hale’s messy half-up, half-down look.
