A cropped cut doesn't have to be a one-trick pony. Just look at the different moods New York City stylist Sarah Potempa achieved with a chin-length bob. "A short hairstyle can have as much personality as you do," says Potempa, "whether you wear it sleek, full, or curled." Here, all the ideas and the step-by-steps for creating them on your own.
Proof you don't need long hair to wear an updo: Potempa created a three-strand braid that circled the top of the head and a five-strand braid that wrapped along the bottom before topping the whole elegant look with a jeweled accessory.
