REALLY short hair
Posted: Dec 28, 2007 7:44 PM

I chopped all my hair off RIGHT before my FH proposed and gave thought to growing it all back out before the wedding but I'm getting married in September and my hair grows at the rate that it would be at an akward stage by September.  (My hair is uber thick and I have a ton of it!)  I've been looking around and can't find any short hair styles for weddings.  I've been thinking about a wreath of flowers (a little one, not a giant mid-evil looking one) but I still want a veil down the back.  Any ideas?  Or has anyone else gotten married/getting married and has really short hair?

How short is short? You can definitely have options, even with super duper short hair! The only thing you have to make sure is that whatever length veil you get isn't heavy enough that the comb will fall out of your hair. If you want a long veil and a combed one won't stay, then consider maybe a mantilla (lays on top of the head and is secured by a bobby pin or two.

I have posted these pics many times, but will copy/paste them again just so you see some options:

Here are some "extremely short hair" cuts, mostly pixie cuts.... if your hair is longer than that let me know and I'll post some pictures that better show your hair length! :)

(you could do flowers)

(A headband of some kind - if not like this, then one with rhinestones perhaps) 

Or just blow it smooth (elegant) and add larger earrings to draw attention to your face

This isn't the best picture, but it just shows that  you can wear a tiara or a crown if you really want to - just not this big ;) haha

Or I think super short cuts look FABULOUS with bird cage veils:



Another birdcage veil:

If your hair isn't pixie short, here's a few more:

Some with longer veils:

THis is a mantilla veil:

Hope that helps! :-)

Don't forget, there are some really gorgeous hair pieces/additions you could use if you wish!! My daughter is required to wear one for performances with a song/dance group.

I've never thought about it.  But I guess it is pixie short.  I modeled my hair cut after Alyssa Milano's hair when she got hers cut REALLY short.

Hey! I have been engaged since October, and cut my hair just below my ears (about 6 inches off) just a month ago. Everyone expects you to have long hair for your wedding.... and I prefer my hair short, and so does my Fiancee... so I just decided to do it. I will be wearing a tiara headband, and a veil and that's it. I will have a nice cut, and fresh highlights as well..I don't think you need to have long hair on your wedding... wear what suits YOU! Good luck! :)

Thank you guys so much!  I went wedding dress shopping and found the perfect dress and (despite the fact I was against it till I saw it with the dress) a tiara that I love.  I've decided to just style my hair the way I normally do and just have it cut and colored a couple weeks before the wedding.    Thank you SO MUCH for all the advice.  Laughing

You can DEFINITELY still have great wedding hair with a short hair cut. You could do a faux up do or add in accessories, like you said, a wreath or something. Here are some additional ideas for short wedding hair:

It shows a few different looks.

To JamiesBabydoll: Thanks a lot for your suggestion pics. That's what I've been looking for too. I didn't know that short hair could be that gorgeous
