Faux Updo Tutorial For Short Hair

 
I've been getting a lot of inquiries about how I style my hair, now that it's short. I'll be doing more tutorials on how I wear my hair down, but I also wanted to show how I fake an updo. You all know how much I wore my hair up, when it was longer. Now that I've chopped it all off, I occasionally like to pretend I still have enough hair to pile it on top of my head. The best part is that I haven't had to give up my beloved headscarves. In fact, they help hide the mess of pins I put in place! If you want to try this without a scarf, it also helps to have a pretty barrette or flower to keep it looking tidy. Keep reading after the jump for a full step by step tutorial. And if you need further instruction on tying a the scarf, check out my head scarf tutorial.

 
What I used: Arrojo Dry Shampoo, comb, bobby pins, and a Tadashi Shoji scarf.

  22. As someone who has short hair, this is a lifesaver! I always envy my friends who can just casually pull their hair up into a bun :) Thanks!
