Let us start by offering a huge congratulations on your engagement and upcoming nuptials! Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting times of your life, even when there are seemingly endless decisions to be made. Where will the ceremony take place? Which wedding dress is right for you? Which hairstyle should you go for when your hair is on the shorter side? Well, this last one we can help you with right now! We here at the Anushka Salon in West Palm Beach, just happen to be experts in this area! We have endless styling suggestions and hairstyles whether your hair is shoulder length or you’re working with a bob. Simply scroll through our top recommendations for short bridal hairstyles that’ll make you feel eter-nally beautiful on your wedding day. Your unwavering confidence and bridal beauty are our top priority!

A Classic Low Bun

Without question, one of our favorite wedding hairstyles for short hair is a chic low bun. This style is totally achievable for those with hair from lob to shoulder-length, plus it’s simple to create. It’s perfect for brides wanting to keep their hairstyling simple in contrast to a voluminous dress as well as those who wish to compliment a simple silk maxi gown. Ask your stylist to keep yours sleek and symmetrical for a classic bridal look, or opt for a looser bun with a few loose pieces for laid back, beachy vibes!

A Simple Slide Or Comb

A Simple Slide Or Comb

If you love to wear your hair down but would like something a little different and decidedly more extravagant for your wedding day, opt for an embellished hair slide to hold one side of your hair up and away from your face. Wear it high to give lift and volume to your look or keep it closer to your ear for a truly classic appearance. We adore every kind of hair slide and highly recommend those in simple silver or gold, those with pearl adornments, or those decorated with jewels. We’re rather smitten with the Blooming Crystal Branches hair comb by David’s Bridal! Simply slide it into hair worn up or down for the perfect bridal hair


A Flower Crown

When it comes to pretty hairstyles for short-haired brides, flower crowns are one of our most beloved suggestions. From shoulder-length tresses to pixie cuts, this is a style that will work for every bride! The beauty of this look is also that you can choose to go for hundreds of flower buds and create a huge amount of volume and color, or, opt for a much simpler creation with a simple ring of tiny white flowers or leaves. We also love using flower crowns to inject a hint of your wedding colors into your overall bridal look. Simply ask your stylist to secure your chosen crown with a few hidden bobby pins and wear your hair, wavy, curly or straight. The choice is all yours! Why not reach out to The Crown Collective and have a handcrafted floral crown made just for you!

For extra style points, the majority of makeup artists will be more than happy to coordinate your chosen flower colors with your makeup. We’re personally addicted to subtle pink flower crowns and blush-colored eyeshadow! Try out this look for yourself with eyeshadow by Makeup Factory in the shade Sea Rose!

Half Up and Half Down

Your wedding hairstyle will be one of the most memorable in your life though you still want to feel like you as you glide down the aisle. Half up and half down is a style many of us wear in our everyday lives. If it’s a favorite of yours as it is of ours, choose it for your wedding day and ask your stylist to give it a bridal edge for you. This may mean opting for cleaner lines and a chicer finish than you would usually strive for, or you could choose to style the upper half in a bun or knot configuration. We also love the idea of finish-ing off this much-loved style with a small selection of flowers or another accessory of your choice.

Vintage Waves

Who among us can claim we don’t adore old Hollywood style waves? Let us know if you find anyone! This vintage-inspired style is not only incredibly beautiful but also perfect for a bride with shorter locks. Your stylist will be able to create these for you if you’re not totally confident in doing so yourself. Finish off with a lightweight hair mist to add gorgeous shine to your wedding hair! We adore the Essence D’Eclat Hair Oil Mist by Kerastase. Use this on the big day to add glow and frizz control to your locks.


A Bridal Headband

Even if you never wear headbands in your day to day life, we can guarantee you’ll love this look for your wedding day, It’s also a style that works on any hair length from pixie cuts to long lobs! Go for something totally simple with a thin gold or silver band or bring the drama with a heavily embellished, wide-set one instead! You can also choose whether you want to opt for a bejeweled look, one with a modest floral at-tachment, or even a brightly colored band that coordinates with your chosen wedding colors.

We highly recommend the graduating pearl headband by Asos Design. This stunning accessory is abso-lutely ideal for your wedding day and very simple to style. Wear your locks loose and pop this on for a bridal finish or add it to an updo for an extra flourish. We adore this accessory with that classic low bun we were talking about!
