Short Wedding Hairstyles
“Short Wedding Hairstyles”With all this wedding hairstyles talk, I’d like to take a moment to discuss short wedding hairstyles. Don’t want long, cascading locks for your wedding day? It’s not a problem, because there are a variety of options for short wedding hairstyles too! There are a variety of reasons you may not have long hair for your wedding;
- 1) you may not have the time to grow out your hair
- 2) you don’t want to pay for pricey extensions or
- 3) you love your short hair and want to work with it on your wedding day. All of these reasons plus some have led me to be creative when it comes to short wedding hairstyles.
I love creating faux up-dos for short wedding hairstyles. You can create this look by setting hair in large Velcro rollers and then pulling hair up and off face toward the back of your head. Keep key pieces in place by using bobby pins and a hard hold hairspray like Kenra’s Platinum Finishing Spray. Add accessories like fresh flowers or a decorative hair piece in the back to conceal where you are pinning the short strands at.
If you are wearing a veil during the ceremony and throughout the reception, you don’t have to add any accessories in the back because your veil will cover that. This is the perfect style for the bride who really wanted to grow her hair out for an up-do but didn’t have time.
My advice for brides that don’t want to wear a veil is to accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. You can definitely dress up your short wedding hairstyles with simple accessories that differentiate this hairstyle from your everyday style. One of my favorite short wedding hairstyle accessories is the headband. I love these sparkly, elaborate headbands made just for brides. This definitely says ‘wedding hairstyle’ and gives you the option of a DIY short hairstyle. You can style your hair normally, slip on your headband and voila…your wedding hairstyle is done in less than 10 minutes!
Other accessories you may want to try are hair pins that have Swarovski crystals or other sparkly jewels on them. And if you want something that is super stylish and chic right now, try a feathered accessory to complete your short wedding hairstyle. You can don a feather headband or a pin with feathers on it too.
Obviously I am a huge fan of accessories for short wedding hairstyles, especially those that sparkle and shine, but there are other things you can do to make your short hair stand out on your wedding day too. High lighting your hair is a great way to brighten your complexion (giving you that bridal glow) and giving dimension to your hair. If you haven’t high lighted your hair before, I’d suggest doing something subtle to start out with. And if you currently high light your hair, try adding in a few low lights for additional dimension and contrast.
Short wedding hairstyles are just as versatile as long wedding hairstyles, so don’t feel that you absolutely have to grow out your hair for your wedding.
