ANTHONY’S 11 UPDOS FOR SUMMER Seen BeautyCrew

11 of the best updos for short hair

While both lob and bob hairstyles have become incredibly popular in recent years – mainly because they’re universally flattering and a cinch to maintain – the shorter ‘dos certainly have their limits when it comes to creating updos. But that doesn’t mean updos are off limits for short hair. In fact, we (along with the help of top Sydney hairdresser and owner of RAW Salon in Surry Hills, Anthony Nader) have rounded up a list of the best updos for short hair, perfect for wedding season, lunch with your girlfriends or just a regular day in the office.

HOW TO CREATE THAT ROYAL NO-FUSS BUN as seen by Anthony VOGUE

Meghan Markle has officially committed to the no-fuss updo as her go-to royal look, so we found how to create the hairstyle of 2018.

While Meghan Markle is learning the ropes when it comes to perfecting royal outings, we’ve noticed one trend has emerged–each time Markle has stepped out hand-in-hand with fiancé Prince Harry, she’s opted for a chic bun, complete with a few strands left out in a fuss-free way. It has quickly become her signature look and so we quizzed Anthony Nader of Sydney’s Raw Anthony Nader salon, to learn his insider tips for recreating it at home.

This style is best suited to dirty hair, so the good news is you don’t have to start with an ambitious washing and drying regime. “If your strands are too clean and soft at the moment, give them a quick once over with a dry shampoo or dry texture spray like Muk’s dry shampoo over the root area and massage the product through,” says Nader. It’s that nice, one-day-old, lived-in hair you’re after.

Then, lightly brush the product through with a Mason Pearson brush: “This will distribute nice and evenly from mid-lengths to ends,” he says.

To create the bun, tilt your head back and scrape your hair from the hairline back to the nape area, securing it just below your crown area. Tie this up into a twisted knot and secure with your bobby pins.

“The most important aspect of this new trend is the shorter pieces framing the face, as this gives you the modern, current edge that is required for this look,” Nader adds. “If your hair is one length, it won’t do you any favours – as you need shorter pieces to soften the look of what we’re trying to achieve.”

He also reminds us to make like Meghan and refrain from over-smoothing the hair, instead keep it textured, piecey and just a little bit dishevelled, for that royal-approved look.
