3 Great Tutorials for Short Prom Hairstyles

3 Great Tutorials for Short Prom Hairstyles

I had a reader, Jean, tell me that her daughter recently cut her long hair so that she could donate it.  I think that’s such an incredible thing to do, and I hope to do that with my own girls someday.  Jean shared that the only downfall was that her daughter cut her hair before prom and now they don’t know what they are going to with her hair for the big event.  So this post is for Jean and her daughter, and all you other shorties out there!

There are plenty of ways that you can style short hair.  I don’t often have the opportunity to do these styles myself though as my own girls have long hair, so I took to the internet to find ideas to share.  Let me tell you – it’s harder than you’d think!  I don’t want to just share hairstyle ideas with you guys – I want to give you tutorials to go along with them.  I want to be able to direct you to someone’s blog or site who can teach you the style rather than just sharing a random photo with you.  (And my goodness, there are so many websites that just share random photos out there!)

In this post I’m sharing 3 AWESOME short hairstyle ideas that I found on YouTube.  I think that these all would be perfect for prom, a wedding or any other time you want to take the time to dress your hair up! 

1.  French Twist & Half Updo for Short Hair

I love this one from Kayley Melissa.  It’s fast, it’s easy, it’s elegant.  All you need are some bobby pins and hairspray and you’re good to go!

2.  Messy Updo for Spring {Short Hair Edition}

This next one from Getting Pretty is so darling, and I really think that the headband dresses it up a lot.  It is a little messier and you will most likely be able to see some bobby pins, so this one is great for a more effortless look.

3.  Elegant Updo for Short Hair

This elegant updo from Patry Jordan is really beautiful and truly elegant!  She creates an illusion that you have more hair here than you really do.

I love all 3 of these short prom hairstyles and hope that it helps all of you with short hair that are searching for that perfect updo!  I am working on another post with more short hairstyle ideas for you, so I hope that you will stop back by my blog for that soon.

I’d love to see how you style your (or your daugther’s) hair for prom!  You can share it on my Facebook page, or tag me in your photo on Instagram @hair_by_lori

Thanks for reading!
