short hair updo

When the hot weather rolls around here in Florida, the last thing I want is sticky sweaty hair on my neck and face. I started searching for new summer updo hair tutorials that would work for short hair a while ago and thought some of you might find use in them too. These are all adorable and pretty simple for a quick trip to the park or a day at the beach!

1. Double Messy Bun Short Hair Updo

This is a great twist on the traditional messy bun and is a great look in under three minutes. I tried it and was able to get it done the first time, which is a rarity for my beauty challenged self.

2. Quick Summer Medium Hair Updo

This is a good one if your hair is at least shoulder length or a little above. It can be trickier since it involves pinning up different sections, but it looks really cute when you can get your hair to cooperate.

3. Fancy Ponytail Updo

If you have curly hair or want to do a pretty updo with your freshly curled hair, this is a cute option for summer. You would likely need at least shoulder length hair and this does require pins, but is pretty simple to achieve.

4. Cute 5 Minute Short Hair Updo

This one does call for lightly curled hair, so you may want to prep before going for this look. It is really simple and looks good though, even if you don't have rocking pink hair.
