I’m planning on cutting my hair above shoulder length this month and then getting extensions.  I have had a few friends who have had extensions on their wedding days and their hair has looked beautiful.  And to answer your questions:

1. Yes, the extensions will stay in your hair!  Look at Britney, her hair is a mess, but she can still get extensions!

2. You can generally get extensions at any professional hair salon.  You should just ask your hair dresser for a recommendation.

3. No, you won’t look crazy.  It can just add some length and allow you to do an updo if that’s what you want.  

Hope that helps!

I’m on the other end of the fence for this one. If you always have short hair, why would you want to look completely different on your wedding day? My DH wanted me to look like me and so did I.

I had chin length, layered hair for my wedding and all I did was to apply a bunch of product, curl it and then let it be. It was so natural and pretty. Have you tried getting a pretty pin and sweeping your bangs to the side? What about a lace headband or a cage veil to add some drama?

Hey, ive had extentions even when my hair was long to add length for my brothers wedding.  My brothers wife also got extentions as well. 

1-yes they will stay in your hair

2-You can speak to your hairdresser if she does them or ask your hairdresser if they know a salon who does them.

3- You wont look crazy with all that amount of hair.  Reason being your hair is short and it will give you more volume.

If you dont want extentions ;some short hairstyles can be:

1-you can do its called a fingerwave look (20-30’s era) it loks like the "s" form on top and they can play with the rest of the hair pin them back itll look like an updo.

2-go for a trial with your hairdresser ask her either to give u side bangs almost on top of your forehead make the top higher and pin the rest up very sleek.

I hope this helps you out.  You can google short hairstyles and look at images or websites.

Bye!

I wear my hair short and I was concerned with how I was going to wear it on my wedding day(March 08) as well. My hair dresser already had it all figured out for me though! She is going to add some extension pieces and create an assymetrical bob (kind of like Victoria Beckham).  I don’t do updo’s, and I don’t care for tiaras, so why go out of my way to do it on my wedding day? My hair dresser also has a short hair cut, and her hair looked really cute for her wedding (last August). Her long bangs were sideswept and the rest was kind of sleek while the back was kind of flipped up a bit. If you have a good stylist, they can do anything with your hair whether it’s long or short.  If she can’t, then find someone who specializes in either weaves or extensions to do your hair, and it shouldn’t be a problem.

I have really fine hair too and have had good luck with the temporary clip-in extensions. 

The more permanent kind will work fine for the event, but can do A LOT of damage to your hair.  The one time I tried the permanent kind, much of my reall hair came out along with the extensions during the removal. =(

I just love girls with short hair paired with a cage veil. You could really dress up a plain, short style with a little hat and cage veil, or some kind of really nifty hairpiece. There are amazing things that people do. Plus, with a short little veil, whether cage or not, you won’t feel the need to take it off so much after the ceremony and it can decorate your ‘do all night. Extensions seem like a huge expense (though I’ve never officially looked into it), plus, you won’t look like yourself.

I can’t speak to the technicalities of extensions, but it sounds like it’s totally doable for you from what others have said.

I personally don’t want to look radically different on my wedding day than I do normally. Of course, I’d like to look like a silghtly more polished, more glamorous me 🙂 But I think if I had really short hair normally, it would just seem strange to suddenly have longer hair. Of course you should do whatever you want and I’m sure you will look beautiful. Perhaps for some people one aspect of their wedding day is being able to live out a fantasy – so if you’ve always longed for longer hair, this may the day to go all out!
