12 Wedding Hairdos for Short-Haired Girls
You’re quickly checking off items on your list: You’ve booked the caterer, chosen your picture-perfect flowers and had way too much fun sampling desserts. Now it’s time to get into your own head — we’re talking about your hair and makeup! If you have shorter locks, there are plenty of adorable hairstyles that are easy to achieve. Read on for a few our favorite looks.
1. Braid the Front: Believe it or not, you can still achieve the braided look with shorter locks. Just start from the front and braid to the side, then top it all off with some loose stems and a bright pink lip. (via Charla Storey Photography)
3. Romantic Twists: Create a wispy look for a boho- or rustic-themed wedding with nothing more than a flat iron and bobby pins. Check out this tutorial for an easy-to-create, beautiful hairstyle that you’ll love. (via Brit + Co)
4. Keep It Simple: Embrace that curl, ladies! Flaunt your natural texture by adding product and leaving as-is. Finish off the look with shiny studs, a neutral makeup palette and a subtle cat eye and you’re good to go. (via Brilliant Studios)
6. Play With Texture and Headbands: This playful and romantic look is easy to recreate for all you short-haired ladies. Just texturize your locks and pick out the prettiest rhinestone headband you can find. (via Christina Block Photography)
9. Rock an Elegant Side Part: Get that Hollywood-ready style with a dramatic side part and bouncing curls. It’s easy to accomplish with a shorter ‘do by adding volume to the top of the part and softly curling the ends. (via Ginny Au)
11. Style Your Pixie Cut With a Back Veil: Give your bangs a side swoop and sweep the rest of your hair back with a jeweled clip. A back-pinned veil will add classic glamour to your big-day look. (via Sara Reeve)
12. Create a Colorful Flower Crown: Incorporate your color theme in your hairstyle by adding a bright flower crown. For even more wow factor, start with the largest flower in the front and work your way back. (via Justin Aaron)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
