Short hair; don’t care. When it comes to special-occasion updos, long locks don’t necessarily reign supreme. These six celebs are proving that above-the-shoulder styles have just as many options in the chignon/bun/ponytail department. (Though you might want to buy stock in bobby pins.)

Jenna Dewan-Tatum

Learn to love accessories. Pull hair back at the nape of your neck and clasp it down with something shiny. Easiest hairstyle ever.

Selena Gomez

A newly blonde Selena is giving us all the chignon envy. Best with slightly dirty hair, this look uses your natural texture to keep hair in place (well, that and maybe a can of hairspray). Run your fingers through your hair, create a tiny bun in back and pin down the pieces that fall out.

Julianne Hough

Not all ballerina buns have to be perfect. Leave short ends out for an edgier vibe.

Miranda Kerr

A sharp center part and mini braids (taming those baby hairs) make an ordinary pony look anything but.

Lucy Hale

Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita has it down: Slick the sides of your hair, piling it on top of your head. Secure it with a wide elastic and let your natural curls do their thing.
