You needn’t have Rapunzel-length locks to rock a gorgeous hairstyle on your wedding day. Here’s proof you can be a stunning bride, even if you prefer your hair short or are considering giving your tresses the big chop.

Tousled waves

Tousled waves add texture and volume to a blunt chop and create an edgy yet glamorous look for brides who want to take a contemporary approach to their wedding day style.

Soft texture

A short pixie-crop can be softened with a slight curl in the fringe. Pair with earrings for a simple and elegant bridal look.

Beachy wave

Perfect for a beach wedding, the relaxed beachy wave is effortlessly pretty and suits most make-up looks.

Glamorous curls

Bouncy and beautiful fresh curls are a great way to make the most of a short bob. Part on the side with extra volume for glamorous bridal hair that will bring your (little) locks to life.

Braided updo

If you prefer to wear your hair up, short hair can be pulled back into tight braids to create an elegant updo.

Finger waves

An elegant vintage wave is easy to achieve with short locks. Accessorize with an intricate veil or headpiece for some extra glamour.

Boho bob

A sweet, textured boho bob takes on a vintage feel when paired with a silk scarf and dark lip.

Textured fringe

Sophisticated and edgy, a short pixie cut can be softened with some texture in the fringe.
