Bridal Hairstyles for Short Hair

When it comes to choosing bridal hairstyles for short hair you might be surprised just how much choice is available.

Over the last 25 years working as a bridal hairstylist I’ve created beautiful wedding hair styles for many brides. And I have worked with all different hair lengths and hair types.

And short hair, whether it’s straight or naturally curly, hair can be surprisingly versatile. What’s more, you won’t have use hair extensions, unless you want to.

Keep your hair in tip-top condition on the run-up to the wedding, with regular visits to your hairdresser for a trim. Always use good quality shampoo and conditioner. I love Sexy Hair products, because whilst they leave the hair residue-free, they are still nourishing for the hair.

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.

You’ll be presently surprised at just how much choice is out there, once you start looking for bridal and wedding day hairstyles for short hair.

– so if you’d like your hair up, a messy or neat bun, half up style, beachy waves or a vintage wedding hair style a la Audrey Hepburn, you might be surprised at what you can achieve with 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.

The venue, your wedding dress and choice of hair accessories also need to be factored in when it comes to choosing the right wedding hairstyle.

Chic Bridal HairStyles for short hair

The wedding venue.

When looking at wedding hairstyles for short hair there are as many options as there are brides with short hair!

Think about your venue, if you are keeping your wedding low key, with a civil ceremony in your local registry office or you’re opting for black tie event in a Mayfair hotel it’s your big day and your moment to shine.

So, whether you have chosen a simple chic wedding dress of something more extravagant, you don’t want your dress to be the main feature of the day.

It’s all about you, so make sure your wedding day hairstyle looks fabulous too!

Bridal hairstyles for short hair

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.

curl the hair – keep the length

The beachy wave is a great way to give your short hair volume and movement 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 hairstyles 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 is more with the beachy wave bridal hairstyle, so have a chat with your hairstylist to make sure your short hair doesn’t look over-styled.

Bridal hairstyles for short hair – working with extensions

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

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

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

Clip-in extensions for short hair

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

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 conjuring up wedding day hairstyles 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.

Whilst they can be fantastic for adding much-needed volume and length to finer hair or for secretly cheating hairstyles with multiple braid layers (think Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones), they will only work well if your wedding hair stylist knows how to handle them.

Visible hair extensions, loose hair extensions or mismatched hair extensions are a bride’s nightmare.

If you’re not sure about what to do with your hair or you’re worried about how what makeup would look best. . .
