Braids are very popular in modern fashion, and many people favor them over other hairstyles. Although they have long been associated with longer hair, some shorter styled braids are particularly common among a fair number of women. Here are a few short hair braids that you can try out.
Accent braid (Loose)
This style is excellent for those looking for a chic, Bohemian look. You can dampen your hair with a texturizing balm/powder, and once your hair is ready, you can then proceed to braid it all the way to the tip. Tug the braid to give it more volume and use small, clear elastics to tie the tip of the braid for that extra boho feel.
Messy braided bun
Yes, even shorter hair can be whipped into a bun. All you need to do is style your hair and wrap it up into a simple, messy bun before braiding small portions of your hair and wrapping them around the bun. Secure your hair with hair ties and add some spray for a bit of shine.
Simple, braided headbands help you to keep your hair up and secure, without ever having to use fabric headbands that may cause headaches as the day goes on. Simply braid your hair around your head to create an elegant, chic and natural headband.
You can braid your short hair into thick cornrows and keep them nourished with the help of hair oils such as Moroccan oil or coconut oil.
Ponytail, fishtail braid
Everyone loves a good and simple ponytail but it does not always look as sophisticated as they would like it to. To fix this problem, you can turn your ponytail into an elegant fishtail braid. Keep the hair secured with elastics of your choice and spray the hair for a bit of gloss and chic shine. This hairstyle works perfectly with your short hair and helps to keep it looking beautiful and glamorous for that perfect night out.
There are plenty of hairstyles you can try out for your short hair. You need not grow your hair out to rock the perfect braid. No matter the occasion, braids can offer you a simple, elegant, and convenient style that you can wear from the office to a night out with the girls.
You can choose to pair braided hair with formal wear, or with simple casual clothing that’s perfect for a music festival or a lazy day when you don’t feel like dressing up. Make sure not to tie your hair too tightly, especially around the edges as this could lead to hair damage or even loss. Also, always use good quality products that do not dump toxins onto your hair.
Braids can be worn with any hair length, and there is no reason for you to miss out if you have shorter hair. It is a versatile and simple hair technique that does not require a huge cost or a wide array of fancy products that take time and effort to use. Try it out and tell us what you think!
