1. The Romantic updo

This feminine style is easy to achieve on bob length hair. These fancy hairstyles begin by using a curling iron on random sections for those romantic curls. Then, backcomb the crown a bit for some added volume and create a deep side part. Begin pinning random sections back at the nape of your neck till most of your hair is pinned back. Finish by curling shorter strands that aren’t long enough to be pinned behind for that feminine, romantic effect. 

2. The Half Top Knot

You would know that a top knot Is pretty impossible with your short length, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying fancy hairstyles. this knot is easy, it’s laidback and pretty sassy. Just tie the top half of your hair into a ponytail before winding the ends into a knot and secure with an elastic or pins. You can use pins to keep short strands in place or let them be. The disheveled effect just adds to the laidback yet stylish vibe of such simple hairstyles for short hair.

3.  Bun With A Twist

Take a 1-inch section of hair on either side in the front and twist them both and secure with a bobby pin at the back. Once you’ve done this on both sides, just wrap the rest of your hair into a messy, low bun. You can let some pieces fall loosely to complete these fancy hairstyles!

4. The French-Braid Ponytail

Your hair may be too short for a full French braid, but you can do a half one! Start French-braiding the top half of your hair at the back and continue it till about the nape of your neck. Tie it into a low ponytail and let a few tendrils loose in the front. This girly do is perfect for fancy hairstyles or a fun brunch with your gang.

5. Loose Waves

We absolutely love fancy hairstyles with a textured, wavy crop. Use a sea salt spray on your strands and tousle and twist with your fingers for those beachy waves. If your hair is stubborn then use a curling iron to create loose waves. Straighten your bangs (if you have any) and voila! Pin one side back if you like with a pretty bobby pin.

Create 3 sections at the back of your hair and tie them into 3 low ponytails for these fancy hairstyles. Twist the middle one tightly and coil it into a tiny bun at the nape of your neck and use bobby pins to secure it. Do the same on the other 2 sections, and that’s it!
