Short Hairdos for Modern London Brides


When it comes to fashion advice for the bride and her bridesmaids a hair do plays an equally important part as bridal gowns and other stuff. You must have noticed that when a girl gets engaged, she suddenly decides that she should grow her hair long. It’s quite plausible why girls think this way since most of wedding hairdos require length to get the perfect look. However, just because your hair doesn’t fall off your shoulders doesn’t mean that you lack wedding hairdo options. Taking inspiration from celebs like Michelle Williams and Halle Berry, we have gathered the best dos for all, from bobs.

Blonde Pixie

Add a hair accessory to your pixie crop and get ready to look fabulous on your big day. Dress your blonde pixie with a dazzling headband and add that X factor to your wedding day look. If you have grown-out pixie, create the illusion of an up do by brushing back your hair.

Super-Shiny Fringe
If you have chin-length hair, go for a super-shiny side swept fringe and steal the spotlight as you walk down the aisle. Slick your hair back and pin them into an up do. Even if your little bun lacks volume, it doesn’t matter. The front of your hair will look extra-flattering and glamorous.

Vintage Flair
Just because you don’t have lengthy hair doesn’t mean you can’t make a statement. Go for a vintage flair just like Emily Blunt. A side part with brushed out waves tucked with a simple bobby pin will look elegant, chic, and of course, romantic.

Finger Waves
If you are having a vintage wedding, finger waves would give you that extra-elegant look for the day. Finger waves can be done in a range of short hair lengths so you need not worry. You can even add a headpiece if that takes your fancy. If you have hired a castle in London or a ballroom, vintage hairstyle will that wow factor to your Big Day.

Illusion Effect
Carey Mulligan has been growing out a pixie cut, but as you can see in this pic, it looks like she had long hair. But it isn’t true. To get this look, all you need to do is create an illusion.  Tease the top and then push and pin it forward to give an illusion of an up do.

Curly Crops
If your hair is at least a couple of inches long, you have a gorgeous hairstyle to try. Curl your hair for a romantic vibe. But don’t curl them too tight if you don’t want to look like a “Golden Girls” cast member rather than a delicate bride. Go for loose curls of different sizes to get a relaxed and romantic feel.  Embellish your hairdo with some floral additions.

No, no, not pig tails or anything that’s too childish, we are here talking about loose chic side braid. These are just perfect for an outdoor ceremony, as you would like your bangs off your face, especially if it’s windy. You can add some embellishments like ribbon (matching with your bouquet ribbon) to the end of your braid or a glittering flower pin where the braid begins. Curls and braids work well for outdoor summer weddings in London.

Pair your chic pixie hairstyle with a flowery gown and wonder how delicate and girly it can look. Michelle Williams has rightly juxtaposed to create a feminine look without long hairChoose your wedding dress carefully and you can do it too.

Birdcage Veil
If you have dark wavy tresses, get them cut in uneven lengths. Adorn your dark waves with a vibrant flower and a bird cage veil and get that picture perfect look.
Having short hair doesn’t mean that you won’t get that delicate look on your big day. All you need to do is try one of these hairdos that strike your fancy.
