Wedding Hair Ideas For Short Hair

It’s always tricky trying to find ideas for brides to wear their short hair. I’m talking bob length or slightly shorter really.

I have recently had my hair cut into a bob and I absolutely love it! I actually find that I do more with my hair now that it’s shorter than I ever did when it was long. Although I do love the slightly messier unstyled looks which probably helps!

Curls are great but when you have shorter hair the length/weight is not there to bring it down so usually the result isn’t great. To combat this I suggest looking at wavy styles instead.

If you are doing this yourself I suggest using your straighteners or a conical wand

If you are in need of inspiration and cant find what you’re looking in the bridal mags check out Pintrest. Or go onto Google images and search for red carpet short styles rather than bridal looks once you know who’s got short hair you can just keep searching their looks. Kiera Knightly and Fearne Cotton are popluar ones!

Lots of volume looks great on shorter lengths  – Although brides often worry about their hair dropping and not looking as good by the evening.

To keep hair looking full and ‘just blow dried’ throughout the day I would use the ‘faux’ bob – this looks great even on shorter ‘actual’ bobs as it keeps the curls pinned in place.
