Braiding Short Hair: The Best Braids for Short Styles

Is short hair too tricky to braid? Not necessarily. Discover braided hairstyles that are totally suited to shorter hair – and easy to do

Romantic, casual or edgy: Braided styles are totally on-trend and offer a look for every mood. Celebrities, bloggers and beauty influencers are appearing everywhere sporting braids. With the flick of a wrist, braids give a look a certain something – and they don’t even have to be accurately and perfectly styled. Nope, and that’s the defining factor in the modern braids trend: This generation of braids has won our hearts with loose knots, wispy tendrils and soft styling! All you need is hair with a little grip. Help this along with some mousse or dry shampoo. Hair shouldn’t be freshly washed, either – this will make it too smooth and slippery to braid. After braiding, be sure to secure: Hair lacquer or spray will provide the finish and hold you need.
