In styling your short hair into an updo, you can create the illusion of longer hair.

If you style your hair well enough, no one will see these separate sections at all.

a full hair piece, there are hairpieces available that can simply
be added to a ponytail to create the illusion of volume and make
your updo look better. These hairpieces may be used to create
a bun or other types of hair updos.
- Hair extensions are a great way to add more volume and length to short hair. Hair extensions can be a bit expensive but they are natural looking and will work the way your own hair does.
