My hair is just at my shoulders and I plan on wearing extensions for my day!

I think something like the one on the left may work

ETA – your hair may be too long for that one actually. I have to keep searching lol

  • Wedding: July 2014

This was my hair on my wedding day.  My hair is pin straight and just hits my shoulders.  I really dislike the look of my hair up (actually shoulder length hair is the ideal length for most updos).  I choose to give my hair texture rather than tons of curl because more of a curl would have made my hair look shorter.  I did buy extensions, but didn’t use them.  i was afraid the weight of them in July would just be hot and make my hair fall flat.  Screen_Shot_2014-07-17_at_8.51_.45_AM_PBR_6149

maribee:  I curled it and had it half-up, as I don’t like how I look with all of my hair up.

 

But, some stylists can do wonders even with really short hair!

I got mine chopped off in January, so I’m letting it grow as much as possible so I can wear it in a low-bun updo. If I wear my hair down I’ll get too hot and I’ll play with it too much and ruin whatever they do. Saving myself from creating my own problem. Here are some ideas that I’m looking at

I went short – like almost pixie short! I’d tried to grow mine to shoulder length but it just didn’t look right and my hair is really slippery so i couldn’t get it to hold curls or any styling (I had one trial at that point and after an hour it looked like a birds nest). I missed my short ‘do and went back to it six weeks before the wedding. Best decision I could have made! It was nice to feel like myself and not need to fuss with it.

One thing that helped me was my regular hairdresser was also my wedding hairdresser. She was able to hold my hand through the decision to chop and reassure me – and then she knew how to style it for the big day. We both reckon that wedding magqzines are missing short haired brides!

Mid way – we started at this length, then I decided I wanted more off 😉

if you want to do some kind of an updo, temporary exensions can be added to make it look fuller. of course you’ll want to get a professional to do that! 

I think the hair you showed in your photo would be a perfect candidate for that.  I wouldn’t go much shorter because the hair at the nape of your neck would be falling out by the end of the day.

  • Wedding: June 2015 - Restaurant

I am getting married in June.

June = Summer

Summer = Hot

And I HATE hot weather.

So I decided to go with an updo. A messy-loose updo 😛 I feel that way my hair will be organized (not all frizzy and flying around -I’m marrying near the sea), I won’t feel so hot and the “messy” style won’t make me look so plain (I have a round face, so I can’t pull all my hair up ’cause it makes me look weird).

I am going for something like this:

I actually prefer medium-short hair. It is easier to take care of and always look stylish 😉 However, I can’t find the last lady who cut it pixie for me (I wanted to get married in a pixie)…and I don’t dare try a new one LOL

maribee:  Thanks!  I’d already had it that length before I tried to grow it out and it was actually a relief to go back to the look that felt more “me”.  Plus, like so many others here I hate heat!  I’d never had any luck growing my hair beyond shoulder length anyway so it was less of a crazy move.  I had lots of compliments on it and people calling me brave… I just think it’s a real shame there aren’t more short-haired brides online and in magazines. I don’t like that I felt compelled to grow out my hair.
