Short Hair Half Bun Tutorial, girl with bob-length hair, I’m deeply concerned with the struggle of waking up late and wanting something more to throw your hair in a messy bun, just not being able to do it because you don’t have enough of it. Don’t get me wrong. I like having short hair. But the messy doughnut life is a life I sometimes miss.
The bad news is that creating short-haired buns isn’t as effortless as it is to work with 12 inches. The good news is that this is possible. In fact, more than is possible. As long as you have an arsenal of dry shampoo, tires and bobby pins (short hair updo’s best friend), your options for buns are wide open.
My short-haired sisters, this is for you. Whatever your hair skill set, we’ve put together super-easy tutorials that will give you a cute bun in five minutes or less. On days when you don’t feel like whipping your curling iron or straightener, just turn to this list. Keep scrolling for your guide by pulling buns for short hair once and for all!
1st. Apply a dry tissue spray like this from Oribe ($22) across the hair to add extra grip.
2nd ed. Gather your hair into a super-high ponytail and secure it in an elastic fashion. Don’t worry about doing it properly!
3. Knit the ponytail to the end and tie it with a clear elastic.
4. Starting at the base, wrap the mesh around itself, stopping often to secure it with a bobby pin.
5. Once the mesh is wrapped all the way into a bun, secure it with a few last bobby pins.
6. Pull on a pair of stray feathers to enhance the relaxed vibe
