How to Make a Faux Short Hairstyle

Want to really change things up with a dramatic, reality-TV-worthy makeover? Before you pick up the shears and lop off inches, try this faux short hairstyle to get a big change without a lasting commitment!

Try your hand at rocking short hair without chopping off your beloved locks! Gather your hair in the back and make a low, loose braid. Tuck the braid under, pin, and adjust for shape.
