I have short hair and have no interest in growing it out for the wedding. When I do searches for short hairstyles, you would not believe the psychotic blowout do's that come up. Where can I find a good selection of cool short hairstyles online? -Nicole

Nicole, look no further! I'm not sure how short you mean by short (inch-long pixie cut or chin-length bob?) or whether you're curly or straight or wavy, but regardless short hair means you can go high drama with your style. I went and scoured the archives and a few of my favorite shots from the photo pool, and here's what I came up with for you …

Katie's short and shiny curls with an amazing vintage-look headband:

Comments on Short hairstyles for hottie brides

  1. Another option for where to find feather fascinators is Ebay– I’ve found a few really fabulous ones for really reasonable prices. Another of my fave wedding hair looks is the classic Billy Holiday flower behind the ear.

  2. Yummy! Thank you so much for doing this! I HATE having my hair “done” (i.e. curled and poofy) and am glad see DIY ways to rock my bob.

  3. I really love the floral net veil. That’s just gorgeous. (They all are, but that’s the one I most see myself having.)

  4. Thanks for this section! I have always had long hair, but recently cut 11 inches off for Locks of Love. I love my short hair so much and I have no plans of growing it out anytime soon!

    Maybe I can ad some highlights to my hair to match my flowers. 🙂

  5. THanks for all your great advice. I have a very short and modern looking A-line bob and got a sleek, informal gown. I never thought I’d like the long veil but I tried a floor-length one clipped to the BACK of the crown of my head and I loved it! It made my informal dress look a little more special.

  6. THANK YOU!!

    I’m so glad I came across this. I’ve been shaving my head bald for a couple years and have been growing it back for the wedding. I recently gave up cause it’s not me. It’s awesome to see these! I love the finger curls and the mesh headband too.

  7. yay! I had always had crazy long hair all my life , and chopped it when I turned 18 and never went back (just shorter and shorter) and have had an A-Line due for quite a while now. I grew it out for almost a year after getting engaged and HATED it. So my “hair girl” and I decieded it was not worth it and am now going with the finger curl type look with nice big side bangs pulled to the side for a nice elegant feel to it. Plus I am rocking the rinestone vail for the rockstar touch! 🙂

    • I am right there with you. I’ve been growing my hair out from a pixie cut since getting engaged about 14 months ago. It’s collarbone length and I can’t stand it! Definitely thinking of saying screw it and going short again.

  8. this was PERFECT! where were you last Oct! I did a pixie with a wreath of rosebuds with ribbons, but I was looking for non-icky pics JUST LIKE THIS!
