Bridal Hair styles for Short Hair

Once you start looking for bridal hair styles for short hair you’ll be amazed at just how much choice you have.

When it comes to picking your wedding day hair style don’t feel you have to limit your self you a simple blow-dry on the big day just because you have short hair!

So, whether if you’d like your hair up, a messy or sleek bun, perhaps a half up style, or beachy waves, or even a vintage wedding hair style. There are so many hairstyles to choose from when you start looking at bridal hair styles for short hair. So I think you’ll be surprised at what can be achieved for your wedding hairstyle.

When choosing a wedding hair style for short hair there are a number of things to consider, not just the length of your hair and your face shape.

Your hair type will also have a big impact on the bridal hair styles for short hair you can have. Although in the right hands, even fine hair can be made to look thick and glossy. So choose your bridal hairstylist with care!

short, gorgeous, healthy Hair

Keep your hair in tip-top condition on the run-up to the wedding, with regular visits to your hairdresser for a trim.

I always recommend my brides wash their hair either on the wedding day or the day before. If your hair gets greasy easily – washing it on the day is best.

If you have a colour on your hair it is particularly important to use a heat protector, to make sure you keep your locks looking glossy and gorgeous on the wedding day.

I love Silhouette Style & Care Lotion and use it before I style the hair as a heat protector, and also as a finishing product to banish flyaways and give the hair a gorgeous glossy finish.

If you have a fabulous pixie cut or the perfect short bob – a blow dry might be the best option for your wedding day hairstyle.

Alternatively, you can opt for a beachy wave to give your wedding day hairstyle for short hair with a bit of a twist.

The beachy wave is a great way to give your short hair volume and movement to your bridal hair styles for short hair on your wedding day.

And, because this curl can be created on even a short bob, it is definitely one of the styles you can add to your list of potential bridal hair styles for short hair.

What’s more, the beachy wave look is easily achieved but best to try it out when you have a trial run, just to make sure!

Less can be more when it comes to curling short hair, so have a chat with your hairstylist to make sure your short hair doesn’t look over-styled.

Bridal hair styles for short hair – working with extensions

you may be having difficulty getting your short hair to grow long enough to get the bridal hair style of your dreams, don’t worry.

Hair extensions are a great option if your hair refuses to grow or if you’re running out of time. 

So, if your hair is a bit shorter than you would like, you can still have the wedding hairstyle of your dreams.

Bridal Hair Styles for short hair – using Clip-in extensions

You can use as many, or a few hair extensions as you like in order to achieve your desired bridal hairstyle.

So, having a few clip-in extensions to hand for your bridal hairstylist will mean they’ll be able to be a bit more creative when it comes to creating a beautiful wedding day hair style for short hair.

The downside to hair extensions is that you absolutely cannot wing it! Getting it wrong can lead to some big hair disasters and that is the last thing you want.

Hair extensions are a great addition to any bridal hairstylist’s kit but knowing how to use them (and use them well) is a must.

The best bridal hairstyles for short hair

When it comes to bridal hairstyles, short hair doesn’t limit your options. In fact, short hair offers so many possibilities that will definitely accentuate your bridal look. From pixie cuts to bob hairstyles, short hair can be styled in various ways to complement your wedding dress.

I love creating bridal hairstyles for short hair. Please find below what I think are some of the best bridal hairstyle looks for short hair:

  1. Textured Pixie Cut: Embrace your short hair’s natural texture by adding volume and definition to your pixie cut. Texturizing products can help enhance the layers and create a soft, romantic look perfect for a modern bride.
  2. Vintage-Inspired Waves: For a timeless and classic look, consider styling your short hair into vintage-inspired waves. Use a curling iron to create soft, loose curls, and then brush them out gently for a glamorous Old Hollywood vibe.
  3. Side-Swept Bob: A side-swept bob adds a touch of sophistication to your bridal ensemble. Sweep your short bob to one side and secure it with bobby pins or a decorative hair accessory for a chic and polished look.
  4. Braided Up-do: Short hair can still be styled into a beautiful braided up-do. Create small braids along the sides of your head and gather them at the back, securing them into a low bun or twist. Have a look at some of the gorgeous braided hairstyles in my gallery. I think this style is perfect for brides who want a romantic yet relaxed bridal hairstyle fro short hair.
  5. Sleek and Straight: Keep it simple yet sophisticated with a sleek and straight hairstyle. Use a flat iron to smooth out your short hair and create a polished finish that exudes modern elegance.
  6. Asymmetrical Bob with Flowers: An asymmetrical bob can be beautifully enhanced with fresh flowers. Tuck small blooms into the shorter side of your hair for a whimsical and romantic touch that’s perfect for a garden or outdoor wedding.
