How To Style Short Hair For Your Wedding

 

Wondering what to do with short hair for the wedding? Traditional wedding advice would have brides desperately growing their hair the minute the engagement ring was on their finger, however in 2016 this 'rule' is more out-dated than ever. Short hair has always been presumed less versatile to style for the wedding day, but we'd like to prove this wrong. Whether your hair is bobbed or cropped, take inspiration from our favourite 5 ways to style your short hair. 

 

This dramatic style wouldn't look out of place backstage in 1920s broadway. Think light-up dressing room mirrors, powder puffs and luxurious silk gowns, and channel a look the stars of the silver screen and stage would be proud of! Ladies with long locks, this big and bouncy bobbed look can still be achieved by pinning the ends underneath the style. 

 

If you're dreaming of a destination wedding or chilled city vibe, a relaxed waved style can be easily adapted to boho or glam. Create an effortless look by teaming with simple flowers or dress it up with sparkling hair accessories Fearne Cotton-style.

Add texture and interest to short hair with detailed braids to the front, top or the back of your style. One of our favourite looks, this is versatile enough to be worn with any hair accessory and can help to add structure to hold a veil in place. 

 

Go all-out vintage Hollywood siren with 50s glam volume and a flirty birdcage veil, or channel a 20s flapper style with glossy marcel waves and a bejewelled hair comb. Smoky eyes essential. 

A pixie cut means you can really play around with accessories. Add a statement headband, floral crown or even skip the hair accessory in favour of stand-out bridal earrings. When choosing a veil, bear in mind that something heavy on a large comb may not hold, so choose something with a clip attachment.
