Wedding Hairstyles for Short Hair
With the right wedding hairstylist your options are endless – so if you’d like your hair up, a messy or neat bun, half up style, beachy waves or a vintage wedding hair style al la Audrey Hepburn, you might be surprised at what you can achieve with your wedding hairstyle.
The venue, your wedding dress and the height of your groom also need to be factored in when it comes to choosing the right wedding hairstyle.
The wedding venue.
When choosing the best wedding hair style 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 hair styles 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, and give you wedding day hairstyle for short hair with a bit of a twist. It is easily achieved, less is more with this bridal hairstyle, have a chat with your hiarstylist to make sure your short hair doesn’t look over styled.
Keep your hair in tip top condition on the run up to the wedding, with regular visits to your hairdresser for a trim, and always use good quality shampoo and conditioner – I love Sexy Hair products, they leave the hair residue free, and are light and yet nourishing for the hair.
If you have a colour on your har it is particularly important to use a heat protector, make sure you keep your locks looking glossy and gorgeous on the wedding day.
Bridal hairstyles for short hair – working with extensions
If you have difficulty getting your 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 you hair refuses to grow. 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 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.
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.
