Looking for the perfect short hairstyle to wear on your wedding day? Your search is over! While it may seem like most wedding hairstyles are geared toward ladies with long locks, we’re here to tell you that there are actually plenty of pretty looks for those with short hair. Whether you have a pixie, a bob, or a lob, there’s a style out there that can add the perfect finishing touch to how you look on your big day. Below, we share our favorite wedding hairstyles for short hair. So, grab a brush, some bobby pins, and your favorite hair style products to experiment until you excitedly say yes to the ‘do.
Nothing says laidback wedding quite as much as a boho bride. But long mermaid waves and big braided hairstyles don’t corner the market on boho hairstyles. For brides with short hair, consider the boho pixie. This carefree, tousled look works best with pixie cuts that feature a little extra length on top in order to shine a spotlight on the bride’s natural hair texture.
To get the look on your big day, you just need a spritz of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray. Spray onto damp hair and scrunch your strands in order to maximize your hair’s natural curl patterns or to give straight hair a little extra wave. Then simply air dry your hair—a totally stress-free style. The final look is slightly messy but effortlessly beautiful and totally chic.
Prefer a style that screams sophistication? Style your short hair into a sleek pixie. This slicked-back look is the ultimate high fashion ‘do and is perfect for a black-tie affair. Best of all, the sexy style is outrageously simple to do yourself!
After washing and towel-drying your hair, add a quarter-sized dollop of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Extreme Style Gel and brush your hair back form the hair line to the nape of your neck. You can also opt to style your sleek pixie with a deep side part. After distributing the hair gel through your damp locks, use a rat tail comb to create a sharp part just over your ear, and then comb the rest of your hair into place. For a look that lasts from the vows to the send-off, spray a strong-hold hairspray over your look to lock it in place.
For edgy brides, an asymmetrical pixie is perfect. This short hairstyle is slightly longer on one side and looks fantastic when flipped over to one side. All you have to do is distribute a dollop of the same hair cream through your hair while it’s still damp and allow it to air dry. After it’s dry and you’re rocking your natural texture, use your hand to flip the length over to one side, don your leather jacket over your white gown, and embrace your inner rock star.
We’re big believers of looking like yourself on your wedding day…but better. If you typically rock a beautiful bob with bold eye-skimming bangs, consider getting a blowout for the big day. Use a smoothing cream like L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream on damp hair before blow drying with a round bristle brush for a bouncy, sleek blowout.
By now you know that we’re slightly obsessed with all things boho. And when you’re working with a bob or a lob, one of the prettiest wedding hairstyle options is beachy waves. Add texture to your tresses by applying a salt spray, hair pomade or paste to your hair. Then, loosely weave a traditional braid towards the back of your head and pin it in place underneath another piece of hair. Spray it with the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold and you’re ready to walk down the aisle!
A single undone braid not really cutting it for you? To amp up your plaited hairstyle, instead of reaching for a headband on your wedding day, why not weave a braided one instead? With just a few bobby pins and a Dutch braiding technique, you’ll be able to hold your hair off your face.
Let your lob hang loose for a whimsical wedding look with a gorgeous waterfall braid. To create this hairstyle, start with a French braid. After each link of the braid, gather new hair for the next link and drop the hair of the other.
If in-your-face braids aren’t really your thing but you love the way plaits can add intricacy to any style, try adding a few hidden braids into the mix. Whether you opt for traditionally woven or fishtail braids, you’ll be able to add just enough boho chicness to your big day.
Whether you have a pixie cut or a wavy lob, a caged veil is a quick and easy way to give your short hair a classy upgrade for your wedding day. Falling just over your eye, a caged veil is the perfect wedding day hair accessory for vintage brides. You can wear one with your hair all down or atop a loose chignon at the nape of your neck.
For an ultra-feminine style that’s perfect for a girly-girl on her wedding day, top your short hair style with a gorgeous flower crown. Play up your shorter strands by wearing a flower crown complete with large blooms that will help to create more feminine dimension to your look. Whether you opt for white buds to match your dress or colors that complement your bridal party, you’re sure to bloom with beauty as you walk down the aisle.
Adding a little glitz and glamour to your short hairstyle can be as simple as clipping in a bedazzled barrette. Hair clips have come a long way from their days on the schoolyard, now complete with giant rhinestones and gems that can make for a gorgeous focal point for your style. If you have a bob or a lob, twist back small sections on either side of your face and pin in place at the back of your head just under the crown. Secure the simple style in place with a beautiful jeweled clip and you’re ready to say “I do!”
