Stunning Short Hairstyles for Your Wedding Day
Your wedding day is supposed to be your perfect day. Key words: supposed to be. More than likely, there have been some stressful moments leading up to the Big Day. All the way from the invitations to the wedding cake, you’ve had to get everything signed, sealed, and delivered months before the occasion—including yourself. Your wedding dress, heels, jewelry, makeup, and hair is carefully curated by an opinionated team made up of yourself, your mother, your grandmother, your bridesmaids, and the future in-laws. (Now we understand why they serve champagne at the bridal boutiques and salons.) As far your wedding day hairstyle, there’s a bevy of beautiful ‘dos that will last a lifetime in your wedding photos (with no regrets). For short-haired brides, we’ve discovered the power of details like clips, headbands, veils, and flowers to really amp up the romanticism of any short wedding hairstyle. From pixies to long bobs and from statement-makers to simplicity, there are elegant bridal hairstyles for every type of bride. You’ll be saying “I Do!” to one of these in no time.
Half-Up Pinned with Flowers
This wavy style is elegant and romantic with beautiful white flowers and greenery, evoking an old Southern feel.
Simple Pixie with Headband
Keep a short pixie simple and add a jeweled headband for a special touch. This simple short style doesn’t detract from a beautiful veil, either.
Stacked Bob with Birdcage Veil
Short hairstyles look even more elegant with a classic birdcage veil, like when placed on this stacked bob.
Wavy Pixie with Flower Crown
A great thing about short hair is that big, statement-making accents work amazingly well. These bright flowers in a bunch look so romantic on this bride’s short wavy blonde hair.
Simple Voluminous Bob
This hair is elegant and easy. If you have the smooth wave and silky shine, it’ll be hassle-free all night. Old-fashioned big curls, brushed out—heck, maybe even some rollers—are the key to this style.
Super Pixie with Delicate Details
This very simple, short cut is accentuated elegantly by an intricate, delicate accent piece that’s accompanied by matching earrings. A natural-hued veil adds to the romance.
Tucked Updo with Pretty Pearls
This simple updo works with long and short hair by folding and pinning the ends, no matter the length. The lighter weight of short hair holds the style better actually. An elegant pearl comb finishes the pretty bridal look.
Gatsby-Inspired Head Piece
A jeweled, thick headband will serve up luxurious, chic Great Gatsby vibes at your wedding. It works better for short cuts because it keeps it from being over-the-top.
Curled Bob with Flower Crown
This flower crown perfectly complements the bride’s rich brown locks with its warm, natural palette. Her bob is curled in a relaxed fashion to frame her face.
Want to keep the wedding 'do simple, clean, and no-fuss? Use a statement clip to give a special touch without looking too stuffy. This large white flower is bold and elegant at the same time.
Side Chignon with Birdcage Veil
You can create a voluminous updo with short hair by pulling it all into a folded chignon on one side with a deep side part. Place the birdcage veil angled from the other side to create a balance.
Wavy Blunt Lob with Braid
A blunt lob looks chic and stylish with relaxed waves (keep those ends straight!) and a French braid. This style would look beautiful with a Dutch braid, as well.
We love the red hair, red lip, and peachy-pink flowers that all work together in this style. Don’t be afraid to mix up your bridal look with unexpected pops of color—it’ll make for amazing pictures. Short hair can take the added drama.
Vintage-Inspired Curls with Cathedral Veil
Combed-back curls on a bob look classic and vintage-esque. The dramatic cathedral-length veil gives another nod to a classic bridal look.
Curled Lob with Pinned-Back Side
A deep side part and a pinned-back side with flowers makes for a wedding hairstyle that screams stylish. This brushed-out lob looks full of movement and so romantic.
