One common misconception about rocking short hair is that short-haired gals don't have as much fun playing with different hairstyles like fun braids as the long-haired girls do. We say, don't let your short tresses stop you from throwing a braid party because there are so many different hairstyles you can rock even with short hair. So scroll down and take your pick from these cool braided 'dos that look amazing even on short locks.

Braided Updo

You read it right, girls with short tresses can rock a chic updo with braids, too! The trick is to braid your hair as you would normally do, then twist the ends into knots to keep the 'do in place all day.

Faux Undercut

If you're feeling edgy, channel your inner rock star with a cool braided undercut style! Instead of going for an all-black OOTD, opt for feminine hues to keep the edginess of this hairstyle in check.

V Braid

Remember the hairstyle your mom used to do for you when you were still in grade school? Well, it still looks just as chic and trendy now, especially with the right outfit! Keep the 'do loose for a more messy-chic look. You can also add loose waves to keep the style romantic.

Braided Half-Bun

All your favorite celebrities and models are currently loving the half-bun 'do, but you can up the ante of this beloved hairstyle by adding trendy waves into the mix.

One-Sided Braid

For a cute and romantic hairstyle, braid only one side of your head and do curl your tresses for added style and instant volume.
