When it comes to hair talk, one common misconception is that you need to keep your tresses long in order to achieve intricate, elaborate, and on-point hairstyles. After all, how creative can you really get with hair you can barely twist intp a high bun? We say, don't let misconceptions about short-haired gals get in the way between you and an amazing hair game because when it comes to hairstyles for short hair, the possibilities are endless, Candy Girls! So, read on as we share with you easy hairstyles you can do even with a short cut.

Braid it up!

We've already established that braids aren't just for long-haired girls, and this 'do is a perfect testament to that. Create a side braid and gather your hair into a mid-pony for an easy-to-do, chic hair.


Old Hollywood glam

For a dainty and feminine 'do for the day, channel old Hollywood with delicate victory rolls-and-soft-curls combo.

Fringe effect

Keep your mane game strong by embracing the natural texture of your short 'do! For an instant dose of edge, add a full fringe to your look. You can either make the chop, or fake a fringe with the help of a few bobby pins.

Half and half

Take a page out of Lucy Hale's strong hair game, and cop this bold, on-point style. Create a deep side part, and make voluminous and defined curls on one end. Keep the other half loose and wavy for an edgy 'do.

Knotting game

Miley Cyrus may have given knots a too edgy name, but when done right, knots can be chic and fresh, too! Instead of the usual high bun, or half-up top knot, opt for double low knots instead! Don't worry if some of your short strands fall out because the messier the hair is, the better this 'do will be!
