Braids are extremely popular now but what if you have rather short or short to medium hair? Don’t worry, there are some options for you, too! I’ve prepared some ideas you may try for your short hair, and they are all extremely stylish.

Braided Updos

Though you may think that an updo is not for short hair, it’s not true, you can make some! Make your short haircut stand out rocking some side braids – it may be a braid on each side or just one braid on one side paired with a low bun or some kind of it. The braids may be coming from the front or just be made on the side, and there are many types of braids to rock: French, Dutch, milk, fishtail and many others. Your may also try a double side braid to make your look bolder. A crown braid with a top knot or a low bun is also a great idea.
