12 Incredibly Chic Updo Ideas for Short Hair

When it comes to elaborate updos, those with above-the-shoulder strands seem to have gotten the short end of the stick (literally). While their Rapunzel-esque counterparts can twist, bun, braid, and pin to their heart's content, short-haired girls face a much smaller pool of options. After all, how much can you really do when you're working with the length of, say, a J.Law-inspired chop

For all our short-haired sisters out there, know this: You, too, can partake in the updo game. While pixie-length hair is a bit tough to gather for an updo (we've still included one for you, don't worry!), we've searched high and low for bob-to-shoulder-length updos that won't consume your entire morning. So grab some bobby pins ($4), a scarf, and some hair ties, and get ready to transform your hair.
