How to rock short hair on your wedding day

Many brides-to-be grow out their shorter length hair in the lead up to their wedding, in a bid to create the perfect boho-bride look or because they need the length to create the voluminous up-do they’ve always wanted. Ladies with a short bob or pixie cut needn’t grow out their favourite hairstyle – shorter hair can look every bit as striking as long, flowing locks. We’ve curated a list of 6 beautiful wedding hairstyles with accessories to show you how to rock your short hair on your big day:


Classic curls

Whimsical waves

Braid babe

You don’t need Rapunzel-length hair to jump on the braided hair trend. A wrapped braid is possible on shorter lengths and adds a natural crown, ready to be decorated with spray roses or gypsophilia.

Simple band

A simple hair band elevates your simple pixie-cut and gives the look balance with a full-skirted gown. Choose a decorative band with lots of sparkle to reflect light.

Flower power

A simple flower or corsage to the side or tucked behind the ear is a simple and inexpensive way to dress up your short hair for your big day. This look is perfect for the summer and looks especially fitting for an outdoor or beach wedding.
