Short Crochet Hairstyles

Crochet hair extensions are one of the best protective styling options for short natural hair. They cover up the full length of your hair and thread it with an endless variety of styles from light waves to tight twists.

You don’t have to go full length to create a good looking crochet look. Great volume and style can be created with shorter extensions, perfect for those of us who are permanently on the run and looking for styles that are easy to manage and maintain.

Check out our selection of the best short crochet hairstyles.


1Very Natural Short Crochet

We love just how similar to an actual day three wash-and-go this is! Loose crochet extensions like this require some styling with a trident comb and especially avoid any extra friction by sleeping in a bonnet or scarf.

2Deep Red Short Crochet

Larger curls, shorter length. We love the picks of this style. Large curls in ombre give the style volume while the short length keeps it lightweight and convenient.

3Blonde Highlights Short Crochet

Just in the frontier between short and medium lays this perfect look! Your hairdresser can combine Brazilian and Indian varieties of hair to create this look.

4Laid Back Curly Crochet Braid Out

Tight and large curls in a tapered cut. This style screams romance and fun. We just have to comment the combination of deep black hair and that awesome purple lip color.

5Chunky Short Crochey

If you’re into keeping some definition, this is a great option. Larger curls are easier to manage and keep coiled at night. Use some hairpins and a dab of styling cream.

6Purple Black Crochet Curls

This in an example of how short goes a LONG way. These extensions are about 7 inches long but are threaded in a way that provided great volume and coverage.

7Layered Curly Crochet

Let’s just say tapered is a favorite. You just can’t go wrong. Choosing loose and wavy hair extensions will give your style extra movement and body.

8Brazilian Crochet Lob

You may be looking for a crochet style that’s simple, compliments your features and doesn’t give you wild amounts of volume. This is it!

93b Curly Crochet

These crochet extensions are quite similar to a perm rod on 3b hair. Length is still not passed your shoulders so it stills focuses on your beautiful features first and foremost.

10Defined Short Crochet

Some hair extension brands provide crochet threads that are ready to wear as is. This variety provides great defined curls, while you’re free to play with color selection.

11Short Asymmetrical Bob Crochet

We love bob hairstyles! Slightly angled and perfectly complimented by almost curly extensions. Make sure to land at a hairdresser with great scissor skills to achieve this look.

12Short Layered Curly Crochet

Layers are an awesome way to take down or up the volume of a hairstyle. In this case, layers are used to keep the hair off the shoulders and let the style highlight cheeks and eyes. Lovely.

13Short Crochet With Bangs

Yes, you can create bangs using crochet. It’s actually a great strategy to cover your tracks and give bangs a try without having to cut your own hair. Risk free exploration? Sign us up!

14Short Asymmetric Chocolate Crochey

A great amount of volume and it is still above your ears! If you’re wondering what to do while growing from a really short tapered Afro, this is a great style! You can find it here.

15Cute Short Fro Crochet Afro

Short style, great bangs. This is a look that most curlies achieve by pulling their hair up in a puff, but there’s no need. Light and sassy, this is a 100 emoji type of look.

16Perm Curls Crochet Braids

Two for one! Get a perm rod style with the heatless convenience. This type of extensions has a great volume for easy crocheting.

17Twist Out Crochet Braids

Achieve the most natural look while still protecting your tresses! This curl pattern is very similar to a twist out look and the natural hair tone makes it even more perfect.

18Blonde Crochet Braidout

How gorgeous are these curls? Don’t tell us she doesn’t look short of godly with this platinum look! If your own hair is bleached or colored you can find hair extension to match!

19High Top Crochet Twists

Yes! This is something we wanted to see. Twists are often conceived as a long hair style but this proves it works just as well in a shorter range. The shave lines give it a perfect finish.

20Layered Short Crochet Braid

And then again, layers and curls always win. Looking natural and gorgeous as ever with crocheted kinky curly hair extensions with just the right amount of volume.

Crocheting is part of the protective hairstyle Olympus. One of the most important tips is to always keep a close eye on your natural hair, keep it hydrated and as clean as possible. An oil scalp massage can be a great add up to your maintenance routine every 3 to 5 days.

Pro tip: Keep a spray bottle at hand and dilute about a dime size amount of shampoo in it to massage into your scalp and keep it clean!

Hair extensions can absorb moisture and oils and prevent them from getting to your hair in a timely manner, which is why it’s important to keep moisture coming to make your style big on the protective side.

Depending on the quality and durability of your hair extensions, you may fully wash them one week to ten days in. Especially in the warmer seasons or after a good night out (no one loves post dance club smells in their hair). Remember to seal them afterwards with a good oil or shaping butter.

There’s hundreds if not thousands of extension types to pick from when choosing to do a short crochet style. It’s actually surprising there’s not a bigger following for this hair trend – Or is it that we’re just too addicted to short, lightweight and sexy hairstyles?
