5 styling ideas for short hair

  | 

There’s wedding hairstyle inspiration aplenty for the ladies with long locks but for those of us with a shorter ’do, the flowing braids and waves are a miss. That’s not to say we’re missing out because short hairstyles can be just as sweet, dramatic, romantic and equally as stunning as long hair. Read on for a rundown on some fabulous wedding looks.

1. Old World Charm

The sweet 20s look is perfect for gals out there with pixie cuts and thinner hair. It’s a very soft, elegant style and is complete with sweeping bangs that frame the face. Team with sparkling hair accessories for a glamorous finish. Just add something new, borrowed and blue.

2. Bold & Blunt

The bob never goes out of style. It has seen many adaptations over the years including the ‘lob’ (the long bob), the concave bob, bob with bangs, asymmetrical bob and more. Plus, you can have it whichever way you like: curly, wavy or straight. For extra drama, a blunt, sleek cut adds definition, draws attention to the face and creates the perfect base for your chosen accessory.

3. Curled to Perfection

For those who have naturally curly hair, your hairstylist will, on the day, be able to shape and primp your tresses into perfect curls, accentuating the assets you already have. For those with dead-straight locks, this look is achievable as well – think retro pin curls or glossy waves. Just steer clear of too-tight curls.

4. Light & Simple

For those with thicker hair, layers are a great idea to lighten your ’do and create a soft, feminine and effortless look. This style looks great with a concave cut: shorter at the back and longer at the front, sitting just below the jawline.

5. Vintage Waves

Pin-up vintage waves are making a strong comeback, adding a bit of attitude without sacrificing an ounce of elegance. This style looks best with ultra silky, shiny hair so be sure not to miss your treatments in the lead up to your big day.
