When should I book my wedding hair trial?
When planning your hairstyle for your big day it’s really important that you get organised as early as possible. Finding a great stylist, getting ideas and testing out looks takes time, so the sooner you get it done the better. We’ve got a blog post below with everything you need to know that’s definitely worth reading and will help you to make the most of your appointment.
Decide on a veil
A veil or tiara will completely change your options hair-wise so it’s important to decide whether you want to wear it as early as possible. If you do, then you’ll need to bring this to your hair trial so that your stylist can incorporate it into your looks.
Think about the maintenance
Some hairstyles won’t hold as well as others and will require touch-ups throughout the day. This is really important to think about, especially if you’d rather something that lasts. It’s worth chatting to your stylist about this as they’ll be able to give you advice on making your hairstyle last longer and how to transition the look from day to evening.
The best bridal hairstyles for short hair?
To give you some inspiration we’ve found a few gorgeous hairstyles that work perfectly with short hair. You can change and adapt these looks to match the vibe you’re going for but we think they’re a perfect starting point to get you inspired.
There’s no reason why you can’t go for some classic curls if you have short hair, you’ll just want to keep your roots a little straighter so that it’s more relaxed. We love the pearl hairband with this look too and it’s a really low maintenance style that will help to add body to fine hair.
Short hair looks amazing with loads of texture so beachy waves are a great option, especially if your hair is fine. You can make them look more polished by smoothing down any flyaways and incorporating a hair accessory into the look. This would look amazing with a beaded or more boho-inspired dress if you’re not into being traditional.
If your hair is too short for an updo then this is a great alternative that will keep it off your face. You basically have two lace braids on either side of your head that you can accessorise with clips or flowers. You can either keep this really neat, or more relaxed like the one in the picture depending on what vibe you’re going for.
If your hair is around shoulder length then you could definitely go for an up-do that sits at the nape of your neck. This twisted hairstyle is perfect for adding loads of volume and making your hair look much thicker. You could also use one of our Volumiser wefts to add extra thickness and length which will help when constructing the bun.
If you wanted something that looks more natural then these soft bends would be perfect. We love the crown too and it’s such a pretty look that doesn’t require a lot of maintenance during the day. This is really simple to create using some hair straighteners and will help to add extra texture to really short styles.
This is such a pretty look and is perfect if you’re going for a more relaxed, boho vibe. You could either do a more sleek interpretation like this one or you could add some waves to create lots of extra texture.
This is such a chic look and perfect if you want something that will last all day, without any maintenance. We’d recommend keeping it soft over a wet look and incorporating some luxurious accessories like these, to give it more staying power.
This is such a good hack for incorporating accessories into shorter hair cuts that looks so beautiful in photographs. You could go for this look or one braid on the side for a classic Hollywood vibe. Once your braid is finished you just need to push in the pearl clips, so quick and easy! You can pick up various pack sizes of pearl hair slides like these, depending on how many you need to create your desired look.
