Easy updos for curly short hair

Curly hair is perfect for doing easy updos for short hair as all you need to do is wind the curls around your finger and pin it in place with a hairgrip to make a ‘rolled’ section.

You can just make curled rolls at the back of the head, and brush back the sides to be flat, (like when you’ve got a ponytail) to copy a classic updo!
