8 Wedding Hairstyles For Those Rocking Short Hair

Here are 8 ways to rock a chic short hairdo — the pixie cut and bob — that prove you don’t need long tresses to look gorgeous on your special day.


If you have a long fringe, you can get a puffy bouffant no matter the length of your hair. Pump up your hair volume and let the rest of your hair fall in loose curls that frame your face.

This classic hairdo is a good alternative to updos, braids or buns and allows you to channel your inner Great Gatsby. Uncomplicated and hassle-free, retro waves give short hair some visible volume and texture.

So you don’t have long enough hair for an intricate updo, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a similar look. Keep hair mess to a minimum with a braided updo that keeps close to your scalp and bunch it up at the base of your head for a small bun. Add accessories like flowers or a clip to complete the look.

Braided Pixie

Better than a pixie haircut is one with French braids lining one side of your head. This hairstyle also lets you show off plenty of colour contrast if you have a fantastic dye job.

Floral Crown

Flower crowns used to be worn by young maidens in love and celebration and is still a popular fashion trend today. It goes perfectly with long or short hair, so personally customise your own fresh flower garland and pair it with your wedding dress.

We love the cool slicked-back look that gives any woman a fiercer edge. Style it simply with a statement hair piece and get ready to walk down the aisle!

Hair Tattoo Stickers

This looks better than it sounds — you’ve probably seen some of these on girls attending the Coachella Festival, and if headbands, floral crowns, and bling accessories aren’t quite up your alley, hair tattoo stickers are your go-to fix for styling short hair. Part your pixie cut to the side, and we love these quaint, elegant gold leaf stickers that immediately elevates your bridal look.
