Cute Updo Idea for Short Hair

Having had long hair my entire life, it never occurred to me how difficult it would be to pull of an updo with above-the-shoulders strands. I imagine that your options are pretty limited since a) there's not enough length to create an actual bun or chignon and b) any shorter pieces around the face wouldn't even make it to the back. But neither seemed to be an issue for Drew Barrymore, who recently proved that short-haired girls can in fact execute an extremely chic updo.

Here's a pic of her from the front looking very polished and glam (you would never know that she has short-haired, right?).


And here's a shot of Drew from the back.

It looks like she pulled her hair into a mini ponytail, then twisted it upwards and secured it with a bunch of pins, letting the ends splay out. As for those shorter pieces in the front that I was worried about, she tackled them with more bobby pins. I like that the pins are deliberately visible — it gives the style a cool undone effect.
