Rock Your Short Locks: 20 Short and Sassy Wedding Hairstyles

  short wedding hair

As someone who sports a short hairstyle, my first reaction when it came to my intimate wedding was extensions. Most magazines highlight long, flowing hairstyles that make you wonder: “What’s a short-haired girl to do?”

Well, banish those thoughts my short-haired friends: short and sassy is just as stylin’ – and it sets you apart from the rest!

First, let’s talk accessories that look fabulous with short hair.

Headbands and fascinators are hot right now – and a fabulous way to add drama to your locks. They are easily made by hand or can be purchased at any accessory store. They make a statement and highlight your hairstyle choice.

    FYI - Black women have short hair, host intimate weddings, and read this blog...

    Hi Tam,
    Thanks for your comment. You are right! I will keep this in mind for the next hairstyles post!

    I grew my hair for FIVE YEARS, and then cut it all off so that it was literally ear-length, and surprise, surprise, THAT's when my boyfriend decided to propose. I was very worried about being a bride with short hair but this post is definitely reassuring - thank you. Short hair is beautiful.

    I love how short hair looks with the birdcage veils! So cute and vintage.
