Short hair, don’t care

You flick through wedding magazines and scroll through Pinterest and it’s all the same – brides with long, flowing hair, swishing it like they’re in a L’Oreal advert…

However it’s not just Rapunzel and her mates who deserve all the glory and hairspiration. Women with short hair get married too, you know.

So we’ve dug up seven of the best short wedding hairstyle options (the cream of the cropped if you will) which you can bring to your hairdresser, point at and say “I want that one.”

True romance

Hair chameleon Keira Knightley can do no wrong. She’s the queen of versatile short hairstyles and this cute romantic up do is definitely one of our favourites.

Wavy and wonderful

This wavy bobbed hairstyle, as modelled by the beautiful Dianna Agron exudes 1920s vibes and screams vintage glamour.

Twist and shout

To recreate Julianne Hough’s braided hairstyle, all you’ll need is a bit of length at the front to work with and a hairdresser who’s a dab hand with a bobby pin.

Pixie perfection

If you have your heart set on an especially feminine wedding dress, an extra short haircut can sometimes look underwhelming. So add a few more details such as diamante clips, a floral garland or a decorative headband, like this one.

Sixties chick

There’s something a little bit Twiggy about Michelle Williams’ cropped do. We love how she modernises the iconic look with a longer sweeping fringe.

Blunt bob

There’s something so effortlessly cool about Dawn O’Porter’s slick bob and blunt fringe, especially for a casual wedding.

Getting quiffy with it

This look is ideal for any rock-a-billy brides out there, whose hair is a bit too short for the traditional victory rolls. The addition of this turquoise accessories adds a funky twist to an otherwise simple style.
