Most brides, preparing for the wedding, try to grow their hair. But it is unnecessary to have a length in order to assemble a spectacular look. Dramatic cut is especially popular in recent seasons, and there are dozens of options for how to style it. Below, we have rounded up some awesome ideas for short hair. Get inspired and show references to your stylist.
Smooth Glass Hair
Smooth hair, as if laminated, is one of the major trends of past Fashion Weeks and high-profile red carpets like the Met Gala. This effect looks especially great on short haircuts. In addition, the exaggerated smooth styling is comfortable to wear: the hair will not tangle from the wind and will not lose structure, even if you are planning an outdoor wedding on a hot summer day.
The Wet Look
If you like the way your hair looks after a shower, why not go for a wet style? The most trendy option is slicked-back hair with wet roots. It turns out a bold, moderately casual look that will appeal to brides who are far from the image of a princess.
Parting and symmetrical curls are pretty boring. Instead, try parting your hair on the side, keep it straight on the half with fewer strands and tuck it behind your ear. On the other side, add volume and soft Hollywood waves. A great option for a classic and at the same time modern image of the bride.
Remember the iconic hairdos of Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer from the 90s, exaggeratedly lush and super-volume? Today they are back in trend. With short hair, such hairstyles look even sexier and more luxurious. Boost volume is great for laconic wedding looks, balancing the simplicity of the attire.
On short hair, it is not so easy to make a bun. But if your curls reach at least the middle of the neck, you will surely be able to put together a smooth, careless knot at the back of the head. Such a look opens up the face and creates a lifting effect - spectacular wedding portraits are assured.
No one likes neatly laid curls anymore. If you want a voluminous hairstyle with curls, let them stick out in all directions, do not create any geometry. This light, playful hairstyle is especially good if you decide to celebrate the wedding without officialdom, for example, in the format of a party.
The high-top shape lengthens the neck and suits any face type. And separated shiny curls look very easy and at the same time gorgeous. This style will not overload the wedding attire and will always look timeless.
The bob cut is having its moment again, proving to be truly timeless! From chic French and Italian bobs to nostalgic 90s-inspired preppy bobs and edgy gothic-grunge versions, the choices are endless. The flipped bob also made its comeback. Reworked for 2023, this hairstyle is a delightful nod to the 60s. Just the perfect choice for those wanting a touch of retro! If you're already rocking short hair, recreating this trend is super easy. You'll be looking effortlessly elegant, utterly glamorous and undeniably stylish.
The Old Hollywood look is yet another awesome trend to try. Take a cue from Richard Quinn’s AW23 runway show where models presented a futuristic take on the classic 1930’s Hollywood romance. How about playing around with a cute baby bun paired with a wave? The cold wave also works wonderfully with mullets and pixies.
Braided accents are a fantastic way to add a touch of elegance to short hair. Get creative by adding cute baby braids on the sides or go for face-framing plaits that work wonders on chin-length hair. There are numerous ideas to try and experiment. Plus, braids totally stole the show at recent fashion runway events. So, time to give it a try!
Even with short locks, the French twist can look elegant and absolutely stunning. A bit of a styling product and some pins can give short hair a playful and modern feel. Keep in mind, though, that if you go for a sleek look, steer clear of fluffy strands. And if texture is what you're after, make sure it's effortless and natural.
If you're aiming for a fresh look, definitely consider undone waves. They bring a wonderful sense of movement, giving a simple cut a dynamic, modern twist. Forget about those defined curls – this style is all about soft lines that feel like your hair is just naturally falling that way.
Sometimes the right hair accessory is all it takes to elevate your style in just seconds. And short hair is the perfect canvas for that! Level up your look with a cute headband, little bows or a cascade of stylish hair clips or bobby pins. These chic touches are always a win!
