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 crochet 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 Hair

Larger curls, shorter length. We love the picks of this style. Large curls in red 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 water wave and Brazilian 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.

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

How stunning are these purple curls crochet? 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.

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 short crochet hair style/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 crochet hair extension types to pick from when choosing to do a short crochet hair 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?!

So tell us, Which of these short crochet hairstyles above is your favorite?
