11 Holiday Hairstyles For Short Hair That Are Totally Beautiful — VIDEOS

Think you need luscious, long locks to rock intricate hairstyles this holiday season? Think again. There are plenty of ways to create festive holiday hairstyles for shorter hair. Whether you're looking for an intricate updo or textured curls, there are no limit to what your hair can do. It's all about using your imagination, and maybe a dozen or so bobby pins. So, go ahead and delete those extensions from your online shopping cart. You totally won't want them this holiday season.

When it comes to styling shorter hair, you need to adjust your tools to fit your hair's length. For instance, I find that it's helpful to use smaller sized irons when curling short strands. It honestly makes the whole styling process easier, in my opinion. If you have bob-legnth or shorter hair, I suggest reaching for a three-fourths of an inch curling iron. It's small enough to give your short hair curls without making them look like tight spirals. Another tip for styling short holiday hair is to keep around added bobby pins. Short hair tends to have fly aways and strands that just can't be tamed by hairspray or elastics. When in doubt, reach for a bobby pin. If you're wondering what to do for your next holiday get-together, here are a few hairstyle ideas for shorter hair.
