But with a little imagination, you can come up with some really pretty bridal hairstyles for short hair that will make your short hair look fabulous on this special day. Just make sure you have a really good hair stylist to do your hair as, contrary to popular belief, short hair needs more expert styling than long hair. You have to know just how to style the hair to make it look perfect.
Now let’s take a look at some of the stylish hairstyles that a short-haired bride could go for.
With not much length to play with, one ideal wedding hairstyle for short hair is the updo. Twist up your hair into a contemporary bun to the side or go in for a more traditional bun, adorned with some interesting hair ornaments for added effect. You can even make use of hair donuts to help keep your bun in place and to create some different styles of buns. The updo is a classy hairstyle that gives a touch of elegance to the bride’s look, making her look extra special on her special day.
Check out the pictures below for some idea on how to make your updo special.
Let it Loose
If your hair is quite short, then there probably isn’t much you can do about. So go bold and let it loose. You can style it into a sleek straight bob or go for a more wild curly bob. Whichever you choose, do not skimp on the styling products. If you’re going for the straight look, then use a frizz control serum and a straightening spray before straightening out your hair. Then finish it off with some setting spray than will ensure not a strand gets out of place. For the curly look, use a curl enhancing mousse or spray; set the curls and finish it off with a strong hold spray. Make the curls nice and tight for a sophisticated look.
To make the look more interesting, add a beautiful hair accessory to complete the look.
Cover it Up
If for whatever reason, be it the dress or the jewellery, you feel that your short hair won’t really go with the rest of your look, you can consider covering it up with a heavily worked dupatta or a veil. Leave the front part of your hair visible while covering up the back with a dupatta. Now you are free to wear whatever jewellery you want to without having to worry about whether they go well with your short hair.
