Wedding Hairstyles For Short Hair

Choosing a Wedding hairstyle for short hair can be challenging as you want to look different to everyday and your Wedding day is one of the most special times in your life.

Be open to what you can come up with whilst playing with your hairstyles….sometimes just by setting you hair and brushing it out you can achieve something wonderful and exactly what you want…allow the look to evolve, don’t just be set on one outcome. Sometimes an embellished headpiece and amazing makeup can be exactly what you are looking for. For that reason too, ensure that you have your makeup trial at the same time, as it is best to see yourself with makeup on.

Think of the endless possibilities you can add into your short hair Wedding style, try birdcage veils, big flowers…you can have so much fun!

A creative hairstylist can work with making you hair look like so much more, using hairpieces, hair paddings and techniques like braiding, rouching and sewing parts of the hair, can allow the hairstyle to have longevity and be secure to last the whole day.

Wear something similar coloured to your dress and maybe a little dressier to your trial to help you with your vision.

Celebrities and models have really been trading in their long locks for shorter sassy “lobs” and pixie cuts. If you have a “Mad Men” or “Dita Von Teese” inspired look having shorter length hair is an advantage, as these type of looks are better on shorter lengths.

Some looks to consider..

Slicked moulded flat pin curls

Moulded Waves

Vintage brushed out waves

60’s bouffant and a pleat at the back (pleats can be worked into short hair lengths easily, for just longer than bob length hair)

Soft loose curls

Blowdrys with hair softly off the face, creating the illusion of more hair

Blowdrys with high on the crown and big side sweeping parts

Ruffling hair dry and adding in some textured rouched braids

A Polished sleek look with a side part

An Asymmetrical Coif with tousled waves

A miniature ponytail with face framing tendrils

Always ready to give you the most memorable wedding look
