I used to keep my hair the same length as yours and I found that I styled it better than a hair stylist did just because I was so used to it.  They don’t usually style pixie cuts!

If that’s the case, I would save the stress and do it yourself 🙂

Honestly, I wouldn’t have it done. It’s just more money, and there’s not much a stylist can do besides style it how you wear it normally.

I love your hair…its super cute…I was one of those brides that grew it out…and I cant wait until the wedding is over to chop it all off…I wear mine kinda like yours but its slightly longer in the front….but not by much! I think maybe you should have it styled….but do it the way you usually wear it or have the ends curled a little then mess it up…just have a more polished look…plus why wouldnt you want to have a litttle pampering the day of the wedding. I think it would just take a little stress off of you if you got it done. Where are you planning on placing the veil?

@SweetRose2011: I agree that you should DIY it. I usually have shorter hair and I hate when people try to style it when it’s like that. It ends up really not looking like me. Since you want to keep your hair shot, and you know your hair best, I say you do it yourself and pocket the money for something else! I wish I could rock a pixie cut like you…the shortest I go is chin-length!

Yeah, I totally think you should DIY.  I’ve had short hair on and off since I was 16 (so this includes 2 proms with short hair), your length and shorter.

Short hair is much easier to style and make it look “professional” even when done at home.  Looking back at pictures, I think my shorter hair years at the prom look way better than my longer hair years, and I did it myself.

There are a million youtube tutorials, including this helpful one.  It’s part of a series of 3 videos, a girl gets her short hair styled 3 different ways:

HECK NO!! What are they going to do, blow dry, brush it and throw some gel in it? You can do that and save yourself $65+. Totally do that yourself. If I could do my own hair myself, I would in a heartbeat.

I wish I had the guts to get my hair cut so short.  I just don’t think I’d look right with it whatsoever.  Oh, and I agree with PPs – D.I.Y!

I agree with pp and say to do it yourself! Rock your short hair! (mine used to be that short, but I grew it out to a bob and am keeping it this way for the wedding) but anyway, I would say keep it smooth and add a cute head band! Smooth pixies with hair accessories I think look more formal than spiking it up or styling it a different way. Either way, I think it looks so good on you and you shouldnt fret! You will look amazing either way 🙂

Definitely do it yourself. I’ve had two hairdressers over the years who’ve consistently given me absolutely phenomenal short haircuts, but I hate they way they style them on me. I don’t like making waves about it because they look so pleased with themselves, but the second I’m out of the salon I make a run for the bathroom and completely restyle my hair to my liking, lol.

Your hair is bloody adorable, by the way. I can’t even begin to imagine you with long curly hair; this cut just has so much personality.

Yes!  It’s totally worth it.  I know I’m going against popular opinion here but it is impossible to style your own hair for such a special occasion.  I know professional hairdressers who wouldn’t try to do their own wedding hair.  And I just this minute finished watching SYTD Atlanta and there was a bride who had this really short bob and I was thinking, how in the heck is someone going to style that to look like a bride?

Well, whoever styled her hair made her look amazing.  She was completely transformed. They curled it in a way that I never would have thought to do.  Your hair is adorable but grow it out a bit, as suggested and go to hairdresser who can work with short hair (not this lady, from the sound of it).  

Try to find a way to cut (no pun intended:) a bit of money from somewhere.  You will be so glad you did when you get the pics.

My cousin has hair that short and she got it ‘done’ for her wedding. She paid $75 for the lady to put product in and swirl it around some. She went to her hotel room and re did it herself. Save the money!!
