5 Braid Ideas for Shorter Hair

Don’t feel left out of the braid craze just because you chopped off your locks in a spur of the moment hair transformation. These five braided looks are perfect for shorter hair.

1. Half Crown Braid

Get a romantic braided crown look on bob or lob length hair.

  1. Part hair to the side. Spray Stay Dirty on the front section of hair.
  2. Working on the heavy side of the part, Dutch braid the front section from the part to behind your ear. Secure with an elastic band and pin in place.
  3. Loosen the braid to give it volume. Secure any short, stray strands with bobby pins.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 on the other side, if desired.
  5. Finish with Fierce.

2. Boho Fishtail

Rock a free-spirited and undone accent braid.

  1. Take a small section of hair from the temple area and spray with Stay Dirty.
  2. Working with just that section, loosely create a fishtail braid. Braid all the way to the end of the section and secure with an elastic band.
  3. Holding the elastic, pull on a few strands below the elastic to distress the braid. Pull sections of the braid and adjust until you’re happy with the result.
  4. Finish with Valor.

3. Braided Top Knot

Create a super cute, laid back, half-up look.

  1. Section off hair on the top part of the head, from forehead to crown, making it the width between your eyebrow arches. Leave the rest of the hair down.
  2. French braid the top section starting in the front and working back to the crown of your head. Secure with a small hair band at the crown. (Do not finish the braid. The remaining hair will be used for the top knot.)
  3. Spray Stay Dirty to add volume and texture to the hair held by the elastic and create a messy bun. Secure with another elastic.
  4. Finish with Fierce.

4. Faux Undercut

Create an edgy look without the commitment of clippers.

  1. Make a deep side part and clip away the larger section.
  2. Spray with Linger and tightly French braid the remaining hair on the side of the head, from the temple to the crown. Secure with bobby pins.
  3. Release main section of hair and style as desired.

5. Fierce Pompadour

Channel your fiercest attitude with this vintage inspired do.

  1. On damp hair, follow the steps in “Faux Undercut” and repeat on both sides, leaving a section of hair on top of the head.
  2. Spray remaining hair with Linger and smooth down in the back.
  3. Spray top section with Stay Dirty and Sway. Blow dry with a round brush to create volume.
  4. Smooth hair to desired height and finish with Fierce for shine and hold.
