Having a shorter hairstyle can be convenient for many women. Besides being easier to keep clean, it makes getting ready in the morning a little less complicated. But, if you're tired of the same hairstyle and feel stuck in a rut with your shorter cut, you'll want to check out a few of these ideas from Xander Vintage.
These cute braided styles prove that you can still rock a new hairstyle even if you aren't rocking Rapunzel-length locks.
1. Braid crown
This adorable braid looks just as great with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt as it does with a flirty dress. Simple to dress up or down, it's a quicker hairstyle that's perfect for busy morning routines. You'll need some basic braiding skills and a few bobby pins for this style. Check out the video at the end for the how-to and to see the style in action.
2. Braided half updo
This braid is a more grown up version of a traditional style donned by plenty of little girls. Tucking away the loose ends and pulling on the braid to make it look thicker is what takes the style from elementary to master. Watch the video at the end to see how easy this sweet style fits into your morning routine.
3. Side braid
If you want a braided style with a little more edge, you'll love this side braid. The hardness of the braid contrasts prettily with the softer straight hair. This look is perfect for a night out. Seeing as it takes about 30-seconds to master, this is one you'll want to have in your arsenal for days you slept through the alarm clock. Check out the steps to this style below.
