Messy updo for short hair

Well! Today’s hairstyle is messy updo for short hair. I know girls with short hairs always find it difficult to style their hair. Apart from keeping it open and curled there are very less options. But you need not worry now; because I have come up with a style for you girls! This can be done on short hair and also for the ones who have scanty hair, it is workable. In earlier post also I have mentioned that step by step instruction is not possible for the messy hairstyle. Though I’ll try to tell you in brief. Begin with side parting or middle parting the hair. Grab all the hair into ponytail and curl it. Now randomly tuck the hair at the base of ponytail, leaving the ends free. Then take the ends and create a swirl or roll out of it. Lastly you can add hair accessory to make it look more elegant and beautiful.  Actually the whole thing goes liberally, no exact pattern to follow here! You’ll Need: Brush, rat-tail comb, curling iron, spray bottle, bobby pins, hair elastic, hairspray {if desired}. Time Taken: 12-15 mins Skill Level: Medium Hair Length: Any hair length
