Due to a recent post by Miss Peep Toe, I thought I would ask the hive…Did anyone keep their hair short for their wedding? And if yes, how did you get it styled? Is it possible to have short hair (I mean chin-length or shorter) and still look done-up and romantic? I’ve seen a lot of "retro-style" hair-dos out there on short-hair brides, but not much else. I have very short hair and do not like the way I look with longer hair, but my hair grows fast so I could have it below my shoulders in probably a year, but I’d rather not change my day-to-day look just for my wedding day but I’m worried that I need to make this decision soon in case short-hair styles just aren’t an option. Pictures or links to pictures would be most helpful!!! Thanks!

Mine is just past my chin, and I’m planning to get an Audrey Hepburn type stye.
Other wise, I’d probably just get some extensions added to the back. I have super thick hair, and it doesn’t curl, so I’m wearing it up.

Mine is (and will be) just about chin length, maybe a smidgen longer. It will all go up nicely except for maybe the tiny whisps at the nape of my neck. My wedding’s in 4 months, so it won’t really "grow out" but it will be longer than it would have been if I wasn’t hoping for some sort of sweet up do!

My hair is just about chin length. But it’s layered, so it won’t go back. I’m planning on doing something similar to this. I have a birdcage veil that comes just below my nose. I have about 15-20 pictures of similar styles. PM me if you want to see some of the others.

I grew my hair out for a year before the wedding and it was less than chin length. I had no idea what to do with it but my husband didn’t want me to look all made up or not look like myself so i didn’t do anything fancy to it except use a beaded headband.

Thank you everyone for the comments so far!
@MissStellar: I never thought about extensions! Though could they be put in the day of or would they take too long (i.e. more than an hour)? Also I don’t know how expensive they are?
@paigee: Charlize Theron definately seems to be one of the few famous stars who really makes short hair look romantic and feminine when dressed up (posh spice, in my opinion, does not). I love the loose waves, though when going through images on the internet I feel like I see only blond-hair women with this style…maybe darker hair colors just end up looking messy?
@angee524: You look beautiful in that picture! My hair cut is very very similar to yours (just flipped in instead of out) and I like the idea of a headband to make your normal hair style look more special for the wedding day.
Anyone else have pictures of short-hair styles with an accessory like angee524 to dress it up a little for your wedding? Thanks again!

@ Emma Bee: I’m not getting real extensions- not the ones they glue in away. I was thinking more of the clip in kind that they add if they need more volume (like HairDo- that Jessica Simpson kind). Or, there was one hairstyle I saw that was this round bun that was actually all fake hair- they just clip it around your normal hair! When you go for your hair trial I would ask. I’m sure you have to pay for the fake hair, but I doubt it would be expensive and it would be nicer than the stuff you could get at Claires (and it could match).

I have short hair — very short, in fact (it’s cut over my ears). Like angee524, I’m planning to wear a rhinestone headband. I’m also wearing a birdcage veil. The front of my hair, which is pretty much the only part that will show, will look basically like it does everyday, just with a little more hairspray to hold it in place!

I am a short hair bride and I have always dreamed of having long hair for my wedding day… I cut my hair mid-back hair to chin length about 2 years ago and I love my day-to-day hair however I persoanlly do not want short hair for my wedding so I opted for getting extensions. My FI is not 100% sold on the idea of me having "longer" hair than what he is used to but I have to say not having super short hair for my wedding is important to me, so he is excited to see what I look like with the longer hair.
I tried a ton of different types of extensions (clip ons, sewn in, adhesives) and I opted for the adhesive for a few reasons: The clip ins are heavy but GREAT for just the day of… sewn in I wasnt a fan… so the adhesives were my choice. they are a bit more expensive but for the priority level for me they are worth it (I budgeted a less expensive dress for my hair, I know crazy..)
With all that being said.. you can most definatley do gorgeous hair-dos with shorter hair for your wedding. I have seen beautiful wedding photoes with short hair brides.
@angee524: I think your hair style is beautiful.. I was actually thinking if I kept my hair short I would do something like your style

I also have very short hair (pixie style with longer bags a la Rhianna) and have been killing myself wondering what to do. I have finally decided that I am just going to do it like I usually do with a little more oomph. I plan to tease up the back a bit more for height, and craete a "messy" look ith the rest. I usually wear it smooth. I love my short hair and was not going to grow it out for the wedding, and I think an accessory would be too much. I will try to add a pic once it is done.
In the meantime, here are some cute short hair pics I looked up for myself.[attachment=174702,12151] [attachment=174702,12152]

- Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall
I have no idea what I’m going to do. That’s a post in the making, for sure! I chopped my hair off in to a really short (too short for me) pixie right before the new year, then Mr. MJ proposed in February! So now I have this in between, ear-length shaggy-dog hairdo… I need a miracle!
