Short Locks, But Long on Drama


All too often brides to be assume they have to grow out their tresses to look dramatic and beautiful on their wedding days. This, however, is not the case.

In point of fact, it’s all about the right cut combined with the right accessories.

For instance, that look up top? A combination of relatively short curls with a multi-layer bandeau is a look that has roots in the Napoelonic era, but it’s just as fabulous today.

And there are other great options, too.


Short hair can look great with a more traditional tiara, too, as evidenced by this shot of a lovely lady with rather elegant bangs illustrates.

What’s more, it’s perfect with headband tiaras.


A couple flowers and a little styling could be all it takes to make your look suitably momentous for your big day.


But don’t let anyone tell you a veil is off limits if your hair doesn’t even hit your chin. It can still look fabulous.


Traditional or birdcage, you can definitely do a veil.


And never, ever discount the effect of a really great hat.

    Happy to be of service, srah!

    As for short hair on brides, well, if it was good enough for Audrey Hepburn, I figure it’s good enough for others who prefer their hair short, or who have locks that won’t cooperate with longer looks.
