There’s a general perception in bridal that short hair isn’t exactly…well…bridal. I couldn’t disagree more!

Pinterest is full of gorgeous images of loose tumbling boho waves, soft up-dos and romantic braided half-up hairstyles, along with lots of options for hair accessories. Sadly there’s not so much short hair wedding inspiration out there – so I decided to do something about it!

I gathered together some of my favourite people and we set about creating a set of inspirational images showing the different ways you can rock a wedding hair accessory with short hair – from boho, rustic, ethereal styles to high shine glamour, vintage or classic styles.

Whether you want to add a tiny touch of sparkle with a simple comb or headband, add a bohemian whimsical hairvine or circlet, or go for full-on glamour with a statement headband, there’s so much you can do to create a bridal look to suit your wedding dress and personal style.

We used four different bridal looks by Sassi Holford and Halfpenny London, courtesy of The White Room bridal boutique, and Alison Jenner created some wonderful hair and make-up looks to suit them beautifully, ranging from soft and delicate to more glamorous looks perfect for a black tie affair.

Photographer Jess Petrie, who creates the most beautiful soft romantic bridal images, then set about documenting our lovely model Amy’s different looks and I think she’s created a gorgeous set of beautiful images that will inspire any short haired bride and make them think twice about growing out their cropped locks!
