We think your wedding hairstyles for short hair should make you feel confident, as this is one of the biggest days of your life after all! Read on to check out our top seven wedding hairstyles for short hair:

Do you need quickie wedding hairstyles for short hair? We love this twisted back bob hairstyle. All you need to do is create a twist on either side of your part. Pin it in place, while pushing in a little bit of volume. It creates this gorgeous mini pompadour look.

2. Piecey Braid

Piecey ends on purpose! This look balances out a frilly neckline.

If you’re working with lob-length hair, you can wear this piecey crown braid. Start your style with wet hair, using Bed Head by TIGI Totally Baked Meringue Styling Prep. It will help short hair stick in this complicated style.

3. Mini Bun Updo

Triple buns = more fun.

We love short wedding hairstyles that involve mini buns. They are super easy to do (helpful for a bride on a budget) and you don’t need a lot of length. All you need to do is split your hair into three vertical sections. Then, take each section in turn and twist into a bun. Set with as many bobby pins as you can fit! The more, the better, so you can dance the night away.

4. Funky Top Knot

If you’ve got an awesome bridal hair accessory like this one, you have to show it off! We love mixing complex accessories with simple top knots. If you struggle to get your hair to fit in a top knot, you can use a hair doughnut to fake it. Just be sure to have Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray on hand to hold in those baby hairs at your neck.

5. Piecey Pixie

For our favorite pixies, style them into a fun, choppy look! We love this faux hawk. All you need is a little bit of wax like S Factor by TIGI Creamy Molding Wax. Use the product wax to help set your hair in a touchable but highly controlled style.

6. Headband + Mini Afro

It’s your wedding! What better a time to wear a flower in your hair?

Show off your mini ‘fro with a cute headband! We’re obsessed with this floral accessory. It can help you keep your hair out of your face while adding a bit more romantic flair. Choose a headband to match a detail on your dress or your wedding venue.

7. Defined Curls

You can never go wrong with defined curls. You can get these mini corkscrews by using flexi-rods for a heatless style. Or, for a quicker heat style, use a 1/2″ curling iron. Using a curling iron with the clamp helps get that perfectly-curled look.

8. Braids

Braids on short hair is always a good idea.

Braids on a short hair are such a cute option for the bride to be. Add a curl in the mix for an awesome hairstyle idea.

9. Classic Bob

A classic look that we can’t get enough of is the bob haircut. For your wedding, blow-dry your bob straight, leaving some wispy layers on the side of your face. Be sure to use some heat protectant to protect your locks before you create this awesome style.

10. Spiky Short

A variation on the pixie haircut, the spiky short style is all about tall hair with some lift. We love this as a way to show off your facial features while leaving your hair looking fierce. Create your signature spikes by using Bed Head by TIGI Manipulator Matte Cream

11. Loose Curls

This is the perfect look for wedding hair for short-haired brides. Create a bouncy curly look on short hair for your wedding with tight curls. You’ll need a curling wand, heat protectant and some hairspray like Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray to lock in this style.

Another way to wear your natural short hair is to create a mini puff. All you need is a thin headband as you push the front part of your hair down. Add a side flower and you’ll be golden!

14. Pixie Haircut

A two-toned pixie is for the bride who wants to edge it up a bit.

Go for the simplest short haircut for your big day with a classic pixie haircut. We love all of the piecey layers that you can spike upward or opt to keep tame. This look is also a fun way to rock contrasting two-tones, like with this blonde/black hair combo.
