  • Plaits are a fun way to keep your hair back and out of your face.
  • It can be tricky to find braided hairstyles for short hair.
  • Aside from the classics, like a french plait or a fishtail braid, these are more advanced plait styles you can do on short hair.

We love plaits for a myriad of reasons: they're perfect for second-day (and third-day) hair, they're a fun way to add personality to your look, and they're a creative way to keep your hair back and out of your face outside of a messy bun or a basic ponytail. But you can only do a classic french plait or fishtail braid so many times before you get bored. Not to mention, if you have a trendy haircut that hits at the shoulders or above (and so many people do right now), it's nearly impossible to complete plaits on short hair. There just isn't enough hair to work with.

Rather than having to pick and choose between your love for bob haircuts and being able to pull off a cute braid, you just need better tutorials for short plait hairstyles. With that in mind, we rounded up plaited hairstyles for short hair that you can do year-round.
