Short Hair-brained Ideas.

OK, so maybe I do miss my long hair a little bit. Not it so much, but the options for styling it. I always liked to do the heidi braids pinned on top of my head and a messy bun and a ponytail. Now, it's pretty much just down--either flat-ironed sleek or air-dried messy. This morning I went on a hunt for some ideas to style my hair differently. Here's what I came up with:

Add '90s style daisy clips a la Drew Barrymore...

... which is totally do-able as a DIY.

Pull it half-back a la Shannyn Sossamon...

... with one of these maybe.

I'm realizing that braids are not out of the question. I know, that's a heavy revelation for a Saturday morning, but that's what I'm here for. 

Put a vintage scarf on it.

... or curl it, "foof" it, and brush it forward a la old-school and super hot Charlize Theron.

Got any other ideas for styling chin-length-ish hair?


  1. i love that Drew picture. totally remember those times. i need to do something with my hair. if only it wasn't so damn curly/frizzy.....

  2. I've been rocking the scarves lately, too! Short, curly hair + Crazy Humidity = Screw It and Scarf It. That's the only kind of math I enjoy. Ha!

  3. I've always had a hard time with short hair too because of the curls, but am getting really tired of the long locks. May be time for a cut. Thanks for the inspiration. I love the Charlize Theron do!

  4. crazy how different drew barrymore looked then.

    i like all these ideas

  5. I love all of these ideas, too, and am super inspired to now go play with my hair! Laura@
