Faux Updo Tutorial For Short Hair

Faux Updo Tutorial For Short Hair

I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about how I style my hair, now that it’s short. I’ll be doing more tutorials on how I wear my hair down, but I also wanted to show how I fake an updo. You all know how much I wore my hair up, when it was longer. Now that I’ve chopped it all off, I occasionally like to pretend I still have enough hair to pile it on top of my head. The best part is that I haven’t had to give up my beloved headscarves. In fact, they help hide the mess of pins I put in place! If you want to try this without a scarf, it also helps to have a pretty barrette or flower to keep it looking tidy. Keep reading after the jump for a full step by step tutorial. And if you need further instruction on tying a the scarf, check out my head scarf tutorial.

    Thanks for great tutorial.
    My hair is also just below chin length and I should be able to do something with it;) I love that I can do a updo hairstyle even with short hair. I often get inspiration from here, make curly updo or use bobby pins. Now will try with hair scarf also

    How big is the scarf you’re using? I have a beautiful faux silk scarf that I want to put in my hair but it’s just too big for most styles.
