Wedding Hairstyles for Brides with Short Hair

Short hair women may be a minority but just because most things bridal don’t reflect your look doesn’t mean that you can’t get fabulous hair for your wedding day! We have found tons of great styles and looks that women with short hair can pull off so without further ado, here are the best hairstyle trends for you.

Retro Waves

The flapper hairstyle of the Roaring 20’s was exclusively a shorthair affair so why not bring it back. Called the finger wave because it involves pinching sections of hair to alternate the direction of the curl, this throwback do will add sass and style to your overall look. For maximum effect, go for a side-part and curl the side that has more hair.

This is where you can get a little creative. From fascinators, pillbox hats, intricate rhinestone hairpieces, to birdcage veils and hairbands, your short hair can be an advantage because you can pull off looks that women with long hair might not be able to. Get something that will match your dress and the vibe you are going for. For a sweet look, go for a thick headband. For something more regal, a fascinator would do the trick. Since you don’t have long hair to play with adding an accessory will help jazz up your hairstyle.

For a satin dress or anything polished or elegant, a sleek hairdo will round the outfit out perfectly. Or if you’re feeling more edgy, gel your hair back for a sexy slicked back look. Like the celebs above, your short hair can be transformed into a fashion statement. Whichever sleek look you are going for, make sure your hair gel doesn’t leave any residue or flakes but adds plenty of shine.
