If you have short hair and are out of ideas to ‘do’ your hair, just relax. While most hair styles feature women with long tresses, those with short hair can have a lot of fun styling with their shorter version. While colour and cuts are a great way to enhance and change the look, let’s look at some interesting hair buns for short hair:

1. Side Bun:

This is a very popular hair bun style for short hair. To get this look at home, comb hair at a side parting and gather all the hair on one side. Hold your hair in a low pony and tie it just above the ear. Now roll up all the hair and tie it up like a bun, keeping it low. If you have bangs, let them flow loose. Just make sure the bun is at the same side as your bangs.

2. Messy Back Bun:

This too is a simple bun that can be done easily at home and is quick to accomplish. Gather all your hair at the back like you would for a ponytail and tie it up in a bun, leaving it a bit loose at the bottom, letting the tips hang out of the bun. The idea is to not make it too tight. Leave your side and front bangs loose.

3. Top Knot:

This is an eternal favourite in summers, especially if you’re always on the go. Comb your hair neatly and bunch it up at the top of your head. Roll all your hair into a tight bun and secure tightly with an elastic. Since this look is quite simple, make sure you add a dash of colour on your face and wear some simple accessories, otherwise it may look a bit dowdy.

4. Side Pinned Bun:

This is a classy yet simple bun style for those with very short hair, and can simply be pinned in, rather than tied. To get this look at home, comb your hair loosely, letting your natural waves show. If you have bangs in the front or sides, you will like to keep them loose for this style. Pull all hair on one side and loosely roll them, pinning them up low, preferably at the back of your ear. This again, depends on your comfort, and if you feel it’s quite loose, you can lightly tie it up, adding a beautiful accessory in top.

5. Ballerina Bun:

Want some more twists than just doing a plain bun? The ballerina bun is a great way to add some style and fun for your short hair. Comb your hair and gather it from both ends just above your hair. Your hair should now be partitioned into an upper and a lower section. Take the upper portion to make a tight messy bun at the top back. Now make small sections from the hair that’s left over at the bottom back. Twist them up and pin them at the bottom of your tight bun.
