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)

It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
