7 Cool (and Easy) Buns That Work for Short Hair

Amanda Montell

As a girl with bob-length hair, I deeply relate to the struggle of waking up late and wanting nothing more than to throw your hair up in a messy bun, only not being able to do so simply because you don't have enough of it. Don't get me wrong, I love having short hair. But the messy-bun life is a life I sometimes miss.

The bad news is that creating buns with short hair isn't quite as effortless as it is for those with 12 inches to work with. The good news is that it is possible. In fact, it's more than possible. As long as you have an arsenal of dry shampoo, elastics, and bobby pins (the short-hair updo's best friend), your options for buns are wide open.

My fellow short-haired sisters, this one's for you. We put together a roundup of super-easy tutorials that will give you an adorable bun in five minutes or less, no matter your hair skill set. On the days when you don't feel like whipping out your curling iron or straightener, just turn to this list. Keep scrolling for your guide to pulling off buns for short hair once and for all!
