Happy Weekend! Today’s post is very different than what I usually post. Like the title says, I am gonna share with you 7 easy and effortless hairstyles for short hair but that can also work on long hair. You guys know I’ve had short hair for a while now and honestly, it is so hard to style them because they are so short and thin so if you’ve got short hair like me, you’re gonna find this post very helpful and if you’ve got long hair, I think these hairstyles can still work on you! Let’s get into this post!

7 Easy Hairstyles for short and long hair

Double Half Bun 


The double half bun is so easy to create and can work for long and short. I often do this hairstyle and my trick to achieve a perfect one is to directly look at myself in the mirror to make sure both buns are even. My technique to create a bun is almost the same as to create a pony tail but instead of letting the hair go through the hair tie, I wrap the tie around my hair.

I usually don’t need any bobby pin to secure my hair cause they are really short but that step would be useful if you have long hair

Low double braids + hat


This is my current favorite hairstyle, it’s so grungy and easy to create, it literally takes me 2 minutes to make it however, I would advice you to braid your hair while they are still wet, it’s just easier to style your hair that way.

Beach waves


After spending a couple of hours or a whole day with this low braids, I like to keep them overnight to achieve beach waves the next day cause who doesn’t like beach waves honestly!



I wear this hairstyle almost everyday to university cause it’s the easiest to do and it allows me not to have hair on my face when I work.

Low bun


This low bun with huge earrings is my favorite. It’s harder to achieve it when you have short hair but that’s why I use bobby pins, to make sure my baby hair don’t go all over the place.

Twisted Halo


This hairstyle is so boho, I love it. It’s so nice for when you have an occasion, it’s simple yet very elegant.  Again, it works for short and long hair!

How I achieve this hairstyle? instead of braiding part of my front hair, I just twist them then secure them in the back with bobby pins. You can obviously achieve the same thing with brands but my hair is too short and it gets annoying to braid them.

The Hair You Want

Now, you should have some ideas as to some of the awesome hairstyles that you can create for long and short hair. The last thing that I want to mention isn’t a style itself, but if you love the longer hairstyles that you can create, yet don’t want to grow it out, you could look into hair extensions. These give you the look of having long hair, without having to wait for months to grow it! 

This means that you can have short hair when you want it, and extensions put in when you are feeling like a change. It’s the very best of both worlds.

    I absolutely hate my hair! Long or short I’m never happy with it and I’m rubbish with different styles. These are all great easy ones that I’m sure even I’d be able to do though so thanks for sharing I’ll try some of them out!

      I hope they work out on you cause I honestly have the same issue, my hair is too soft so it’s so hard to style it!! Thanks for passing by xx

    Great fun hairstyles and easy to achieve! When my hair is straight, it’s past my shoulders but I wear it mainly naturally curly, which it’s above my shoulders, so this post helped me out a ton. I certainly will rock the grunge two-braid-hat look and the boho style, those hairstyles are right up my alley 🙂

    I cut my hair SUPER short after my husband left on his last deployment. Now, I’m wanting to go long again. This may help me in my transition.

    I love beach waves! They are super easy to achieve and works with any hair length.

  10. September 20, 2018 / 12:11 pm

    Oh my gosh I love these hair styles! They’re definitely going to be ones to try for me! Especially because I’m not the greatest person with hair, normally I straighten it and go from there!

    Loving the half bun and twisted halo! The low bun is super nice too! I have medium to long hair but it is so thin and has no volume so it is always a bit tricky to do cool hair do!

  12. September 20, 2018 / 12:15 pm

    Beach waves is always a safe option for me. I use a bit of salt spray and crunch up my hair. It’s minimal effort and looks great.

    I never really do much with my hair, but I would definitely like to try some more styles. My hair is quite short at the moment, so I think beach waves and the low bun would work nicely.

    Love this. I wish i knew how to braid my hair too because it would turn some of these simple looks I to something more lol. I especially love the low bun, I’ve been doing it a lot recently and I love it. So effortless.
