How to do an updo in short hair

Think you can’t do an updo in short hair? Think again…


Hair Romance loves Marion Cotillard’s hair as she know how versatile a bob hairstyle can be. This latest hairstyle as seen on the red carpet at Cannes takes it to a whole new level.

'Blood Ties' Premiere - The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival

With some extra special backcombing, Marion’s bob has been transformed into a 1960s inspired updo. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a little padding inside that beehive, but with some styling powder and some backcombing you too can achieve this hairstyle.

    It had never occurred to me that I could do a big up do with my hair. I’m feeling all inspired and love that Marion C was part of the inspiration x

      I love Marion! I was so inspired when I saw this pic of her. You could totally rock this look in your hair too! X

    Loving the short hair inspiration! I recently cut my hair this short, and have had so many different and fun ways to wear it – I LOVE it! Even getting caught in the rain and ending up with 3 different looks (from straight to 20’s waves to crazy curls!) in one day and instead of it being a bad hair day it was an awesome hair day!
    I will have to try the updo soon! Anything is possible with some hairspray and bobby pins! :)
