While many brides-to-be are busy growing their luscious locks in hopes of having princess-like hair on their big day, some are busy figuring out the best wedding hairstyles for short hair. With less hair to work with, you may feel stuck in your styling options, especially if you’re looking for something special and different than your normal look, but trust us — there are so many ways to spice up a short hairstyle! Whether it’s an added touch, such as a flower crown, headpiece, or barrette, or a new way of styling, such as a half-down look or an updo (yes, they are possible with your lob!), the options are plentiful.
Just look at how these brides rocked wedding hairstyles for short hair.
