Sometimes with short hair it can be frustrating not having any up dos to accomplish with your length. That also especially holds true for me with such thick hair. Doing any sort of updo on my own is basically impossible. Rachel from Coleman Alexander Salon though is here to help solve that issue with the perfect half updo for short hair. It’s really as simple as it looks in that it’s just a knot. Two pieces pulled over and under one another. Here’s how we did it.
Step 1. Start with curled hair (or however you want your hair, we went with my signature loose waves)
Step 2. Take two sections on either side and pull them back as if you’re putting your hair into a half up pony
Step 3. Cross both pieces over one another, and then take the bottom piece and cross it over the top one again (so it all points downwards at the end once you’ve knotted it)
Step 4. Secure with two bobby pins in an X underneath the knot
Step 5. Pull a bit of the hair out to loosen up the look and spray with hairspray
This is the perfect half updo for short hair but can easily be done on long hair. I love how simple this is yet it looks os pulled together and pretty fancy with the loose curls.
