Whether you’ve been sporting short locks since you were in knee high socks, or have just recently chopped off your tresses to beat the heat, you know that short hair can be just as fun and sexy as those long layers. Styling your shorter do, however, can prove to be somewhat limiting, especially for special occasions. While you might assume an updo is out of the question for your wedding day, we’re here to show you that it doesn’t have to be! After all, why should those long haired ladies get to have all the fun?
