When it comes to styling hair for your wedding, you’ll be surprised at the number of people who tell us they’re going to grow their locks before the big day because they associate brides with long hair. We’ve even had people tell us they would opt for extensions so they can get the look they want.
Yes, long hair is beautiful and you can do a lot with it, but let’s give some attention to all you beautiful brides-to-be who have short hair. There are some wonderful options for you to choose from and we are going to show you just a sample of ways you can dress your hair on your big day.
If you have a pixie cut consider yourself lucky! Not many people can pull of this hairstyle so even if you decide not to do anything with it, you can guarantee you will still look striking because it’s already such a bold style.
If, however you want to add a little something extra, a beautiful side head piece or a delicate vine are both contrasting options that will create a dazzling and eye catching look.
Depending on how thick your hair is, curling the top, or adding volume will take your pixie cut to a new level. You could even add a braid along the crown of your head or French plait at the side for added texture.
Curls and braids are a great way to add emphasis to bobbed hair. Depending on the thickness will depend on the type of curl you will achieve, but even the finest of bobbed hair will produce a wonderful wave.
Back combing for additional lift, especially if you opt for a half up/half down style and team it with a hair comb or flowers, will look gorgeous. Likewise, a choppy bob with added colour will emphasise the cut.
Don’t be fooled into thinking you can’t have an up-do with a bob either. Both high and low buns are perfectly achievable and with some curly wisps of hair to shape the front of the face, you will look beautiful.
If you have a long bob (lob) you can experiment with different types of curls. Brushed out soft waves for vintage Hollywood glamour, gorgeous sun kissed beach curls or loose, voluminous curls are only some of the many options to choose from.
A plait wrapped around the back of your hair or along your crown will set off your lob, and is ideal if you want to add some small accessories or flowers alongside it. Team it with a curled, low bun and you’ll have a gorgeous feminine style that will be admired by everyone.
Styling your lob to one side will emphasise high cheek bones and is perfect if your dress has a lot of back detail or a high neck. On the other hand, a simple centre parting with straight hair will look as beautiful and eye-catching.
The next time you question whether short hair can be wedding ready, remember there is style and look out there for everyone and what’s more, we love to be able to help achieve it.
