Styling Ideas For Short/Mid Length Hair


My sister recently cut almost twelve inches of her hair (you can read about it here) and although it looks absolutely amazing, she was struggling with finding new styles as she's only ever had long hair before. I thought that today I would share three styles which work great with short to mid-length hair so read on to check them out...

Half-Up Bun
The half up bun has been quite a trend this year but I've updated it with two french plaits at the crown of the head leading to the bun. As the hair is only short, I've used lots of hair grips to keep it in place!

Twisted Sides
This is a bit more of a formal hair look. I took two sections of hair from each side of the head, one normal and one twisted and tied together at the back. Using a separate piece of hair, I wrapped it around the hair tie and secured it in place with a hair grip. 

 Milkmaid Braid
I love this look and because you keep adding more hair, it doesn't matter if you have short hair to start off with. To start, part the hair in the middle and start a dutch braid on one side and carry it around until it gets back to the start. Finish off the plait and secure in place with a band and hair grips.

Thanks for reading :)

What's your favourite hairstyle?

  12. I am SO boring when it comes to my hair! I either wear it down, ponytail, or a top knot and that's about how fancy it gets, haha! Although I have longer hair, I'd love to try that milkmaid bread, it's so pretty and perfect for summer! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend!
