25 Wedding Hairstyles for Short Hair

Just because you’re tying the knot doesn’t mean you have to grow your hair or get extensions. You should wear your hair the way you love it. And if you have a pixie cut or short hair, don’t panic about your big day ‘do. We’ve pulled together 25 ideas that will be perfect for your wedding.

1. Light Curls: Keep it simple with a few loose curls around your face. This amps up your everyday ‘do and keeps you looking classy and chic. (via The Cake Museum)

2. Flower Crown: This white rose and baby’s breath crown is a knock out with a low chignon. Leave your chignon a little messy for a more rustic look. (via Style Me Pretty)

3. Piecy Pixie: No need to choose which side to part your pixie — just piece out your fringe (and style out those sides!) for a delicate bridal look. (via Jessica Ann Helton)

4. Beachy Waves: Let your hair down and look fresh with this beachy air-dried look. Do you love her dress as much as we do? Get your own gold accents to shine on your big day! (via Green Wedding Shoes)

5. Bouffant Updo: If you have a skinny headband and some bobby pins, you can pull this off. After some backcombing, twisting and pinning, your short hair will be FULL of va-va-volume. (via Brit + Co)

6. Floral Headband: A couple of loose curls and a classy flower-adorned headband are all you need to make those glamor curls even more romantic. (via Pretty Designs)

7. Greenery: Add a little bit of greenery for a natural look. With a French braid and some bobby pins, give the look of an elegant updo. Want those eyelashes, too? (We do!) Grow your natural lashes and make them pop for perfect eye-catching style! (via Style Me Pretty)

8. Veil It On: Super short-haired girls who still want something frilly on top for their big day should opt for a stand-out veil to top their tresses. We love one that features embellishments like crystals and pearls to mimic hair accessories. (via Afrobella)

9. Lace Band: Cover your short strands with a thick lace headband to add an elegant, vintage feel to your bridal look. This style is particularly stunning on girls rocking the chin-length bob. (via Bridal Musings)

10. Side Part: This might be the easiest way to create wedding-worthy drama with a short ‘do. Accent your side part with a chunky barrette to amp up the wow factor even more. (via Wedding Bee)

11. Tousled + Twisted Updo: This one is for all you flat iron pros. After curling your hair away from your face, twist the pieces back and pin in place. Keep twisting and pinning until all your strands are accounted for. Be sure to pull out some strandss for that perfectly tousled look! (via Brit + Co)

12. Flower Crown: Go big with a giant floral crown, perfect for a fall wedding — you know you want to! (via Wedding Chicks)

13. Slicked Back: Tired of your hair falling in your face? Go for a fierce look by gelling your hair back. This ‘do will hold all ceremony (and reception!) long. (via Short Haircut)

14. Big Curls: If your big day calls for big curls, here’s how to wear ’em: Swept up (up, up) and away. (via Bridal Musings)

15. Princess Bride: It’s official: tiaras can look elegant on your wedding day — it all comes down to finding the right design (like this Art Deco-inspired number) and donning it with the right ‘do, like effortlessly teased curls. (via Rock My Wedding)

16. Short Side Sweep: Channel Audrey Hepburn with a side swept pixie cut. It’s a timeless style that will wow, veil or no veil. (via Geneva Weddings)

17. Gold Leaf: Want the jaws to drop at the sight of your big day ‘do? Gold leaf your tresses (to match the color of your band, of course!) and mimic the metallic sheen in your makeup too. (via Pacific Weddings)

18. Knotty Crown: What better day to wear a knotty hairdo than when you’re tying the knot? After assembling a series of loose knots around your head, this half-up ‘do looks like a fun and different French braid. (via Brit + Co)

19. Accessory-Free: Seriously short-haired girls, you don’t have to do ANYTHING out of the ordinary to look absolutely stunning on your big day. And everyone with hair past their ears envies you for this. (via Bridal Musings)

20. Vintage-Inspired: Backcomb your hair and create a perfect pinup curl in the front with a careful twist and a few bobby pins. We love the look with the bride’s perfect pink lips and cheeks. (via Style Me Pretty)

21. Braided Bob: Soften up that blunt bob with a simple braid that turns into an absolute stunner with a rhinestone clip. (via Style Me Pretty)

22. Single Flower: A single flower just might add the oomph you need to take your curls to the next level. Skip the silk petals and ask your florist to snap a fully bloomed bud from your bouquet bunch. (via Style Me Pretty)

23. Boho Bands: We’re all a little blinded by flower crowns these days, but let’s not forget that delicate headbands can also add definite boho flair when worn like this. Be sure to layer on the bands for an extra luxe look. (via Wedding Hairstyle Ideas)

24. Rhinestone Bow: We’re obsessed with this short hair style for a more casual ceremony. Think: City Hall setting, short dress and a sophisticated bow accenting that just-as-short ‘do. (Best Wedding Decoration Ideas)

25. Bouffant Down ‘Do: Pump up your everyday bob with a bouffant that mimics the volume of your veil. Match made in heaven? We think so, too! (via Carla Ten Eyck)
