Tips for Styling Short Hair on your Wedding Day
Before you dive into the different types of short hair wedding styles, here’s some of our best advice for rocking your short hair on your special day.
Choose a style that works for you
This might seem like an obvious tip, but it’s probably the most important! When you’re working with shorter hair it’s essential that you pick a hairstyle that suits your haircut.
The term “short hair” can vary a lot. So, if you’ve got a pixie cut then you’re going to be choosing a totally different style than someone with a bob. There are still plenty of options when it comes to short hair, but you shouldn’t try to force something that isn’t going to work with your particular cut.
Be open to a different style or cut
It’s important to stay open-minded when it comes to your short hair. If you’re wanting to go for something completely different on your wedding day, then you’ll have to be flexible in making some changes cut and color-wise.
Think about what style will go best with your unique features and face shape and then ask a professional for their help. They’ll be able to tell you what you need to do to your current cut and color in order to make it look how you want on the big day!
Use the right products and accessories
It’s a good idea to browse for the proper products and accessories to use on your wedding day. Whether it’s a special clip, or a specific product that will hold your hair in place. Make sure you do your research and get the tools you need to get the job done right!
Consider a different color
If you don’t plan on mixing things up when it comes to your short hair style, you might consider switching up the color of your hair instead. Be sure to put some thought into this decision and consult your hair stylist.
You might go for highlights, or a different color together. Either way, it’s a good idea to make an appointment well ahead of your wedding day, just in case you don’t love it. That way you’ll have plenty of time to switch back your color if needed.
Think about wearing a veil
Just because you have short hair doesn’t mean you have to forgo wearing a veil. In fact, wearing one is a great way to switch things up without having to change much in terms of your hair style.
Look for a veil that has a thinner metal comb as opposed to a larger plastic one that isn’t likely to stay in shorter hair.
Short Hair Wedding Styles to Try
Now it’s time for the main attraction! Explore some new short hair wedding styles and find the perfect one for the big day!
Glam and glossy
If you’re a stylish gal then you know that glossy glam short hair is incredible. You might cut your hair into a short bob and make it as sleek, glossy, and shiny as possible. This look is amazing for those who want to look classic and put together on their wedding day.
A hair comb
A floral or pearl hair comb pinned to the side of your head is the perfect feminine touch. It also happens to work great with short hair, regardless of just how short your hair might be.
Match your comb to your dress or your other accessories and you’re guaranteed to look put together.
Far side part
Sure, the center part is all the rage these days, but a far side part can look incredible on short hair. It’s also a great way to mix things up.
You can do a deep side part on all hair types. Whether it’s a pixie cut or hair that flows all the way down your back.
The old soul look
There’s something special about old, classic looks being brought into modern times. Brushed out finger waves are beyond gorgeous and leave you looking like you’re right out of the 20’s.
You’ll definitely want to play around with this short hair wedding style before the big day.
If you really want to mix things up then you might go for side swept, glossy curls. This hairstyle is especially great if you have an undercut and are looking to balance out your look. We always love a bride with a bit of edge!

A dash of florals
Florals are a fantastic way to mix up your short hair on your wedding day. You can buy a flower crown or go for a smaller headpiece that you can wear with your hair swept to the side.
Even if your hair is short, you might consider keeping those extra inches for your wedding day and avoid a cut beforehand. Just a simple wave in the hair can result in losing some of your lengths.
The boho look
Are you a boho bride? If so then you might consider adding some structured spirals to the hair or adding a little wave and volume.
Depending on the volume of your short hair you could also add tiny braids throughout or a larger one at the crown of your head.
We said it once and we’ll say it again. We love a bride with a little bit of edge!
Take things rocker chic with a faux hawk or a textured pixie cut. Whatever you choose there are tons of different ways to bring out your rocker side on your wedding day – especially when it comes to short hair!
Sometimes less is more. And that saying rings true when it comes to your wedding day.
You might go for a sleek crop on your wedding day, or some simple side swept bangs to add a little something. Minimalism is also made possible with simple short hair and a lovely veil to top it off.
Short beachy waves
The tousled look is always stunning on short hair! Throw some simple yet beautiful beachy waves into the hair and give it a good shake to loosen it all up.
Top it off with a texturizing spray to create a piece-y, beautiful look that you’re sure to love in your photos for years to come.
No one ever regretted a romantic hair look on their special day. You might add rich and beautiful, classic curls to your hair in order to look as beautiful as ever. Add a bit of volume and you’ll have the look of a lifetime!
The cropped look is oh-so-cool. Make sure you love the short hair cropped style well ahead of your wedding day so you have time to grow it out if you’re not in love with it.
You might add big, fun earrings to make this look extra bold.
The full-on headpiece
Last but not least on our list of ideas is the timeless headpiece. There are so many options out there to choose from, but adding one to your look can take it to a whole new level.
