Holiday Hairstyles for Short Hair Sure To Impress

The holidays are coming up which means Christmas parties, potlucks, and family photos. And this means you have to look your best so you don’t look back at holiday photos and say “what was I thinking?”

Luckily, you don’t have to overstress yourself this year. Down below, we’ve provided an easy guide to holiday hairstyles for short hair. This way, you can focus on what matters– family and friends!

1. Braided Bun 

Unique hairstyles often involve buns and braids. But you might be thinking that doing a bun on short hair is impossible. However, that’s not the case at all. You’ll first need some tools like a donut bun, hairspray, and styling brush.

Once you have your tools ready, you’ll section off the bottom of your hair with your styling tool. This hair will be used to create your low bun. Use the donut to guide your hair into a circular shape.

Once you’re happy with your bun, use the top half of your hair and create two sections. Use these two sections to start a dutch braid that starts at the front of your hair and ends with the bun. The goal is to make your bun and braids appear seamless and connected.

The great part about this hairstyle idea is that there’s no heat involved! So you don’t have to worry about damaging your hair, especially if it’s color-treated.

2. Loose Curls 

Hairdos for short hair often avoid curling irons as it can cause shrinkage. However, this holiday hairdo is all about keeping the length while adding some volume and texture.

First, you will need a curling iron that is about 1 to 2 inches thick. Set the temperature to medium heat and make sure to add a heat protectant.

Then part your hair in three sections starting from the base to the top layers. Let down the bottom layer and begin making curls but only to the last few inches of your hair. So avoid curling the very base of each strand (this is what causes shrinkage). 

Once you get to the top part, curl the frontal pieces away from your hair. However, the remaining pieces should be curled towards and away from your hair. In other words, do a combination of one going away and one going towards your face.

After you’re are done, you should have volume and texture! And now that you know how to style your own hair, you don’t have to ask your friend to curl it for you every time.

3. Half up and Half Down

Hairstyle ideas don’t always have to be extra. Sometimes all you need is some styling cream and a hair tie. So if you’re a fan of simple holiday hairdos, you’ll definitely like this one.

First, brush your hair out and add a mouse or cream to it. Then, take the top half of your hair and tie it up.

You can leave your hair hanging like a pony or you can do a stylish bun to get a modern look. Either way, this hairstyle always looks bomb, especially if you have short hair.
