Here at we are a fan of all things hair and, of course, we are constantly on the look out for new and interesting ways to style up our dos.

We don’t have the time (or the money!) to visit the hairdressers every morning so we are always hunting down quick and easy hair tutorials that we can follow at home ourselves and still have time to eat breakfast and take a few minutes of precious me-time.

Here we have found five ridiculously quick and easy hairstyles for short hair that are simple to do but will have the compliments rolling in. From pixie crops to bobs, we’ve got something new for you to try.

Twisted fringe

This twisted braid is a sweet way to jazz up the front of a pixie crop - and it only takes three minutes to create. Beauty blogger Whippy Cake shows you how in her video tutorial.

Pixie mohawke

Fun and edgy, a mohawke is the perfect holiday and weekend look. You will need plenty of hairspray to keep it in place; beauty blogger Lyndsay Johnson has got the lowdown on how.

Messy quiff

We love a good quiff for days when we want to style up our hair but are short on time. Blogger A Beautiful Mess shows how to achieve the perfect quiff in just two simple steps.

The curly pixie

Using straighteners to curl your hair might sound unusual, but it’s really effective and saves you from shelling out for an expensive curling iron. This easy tutorial from LaLaStar0002 shows how to achieve the perfect curls with straighteners, even on a short pixie crop.

Smooth and Sleek

Create this beautifully smooth and sleek straight look by using a rounded brush to blow dry wet hair followed by a pair of straighteners to smooth over kinks and frizz. Check out the full tutorial by One Little Momma for more inspiration.
