Get a new hair stylist!  Have you seen that commercial for state farm where the bride tells the groom that he can keep everything but his stinky futon?  Her hair is short and it is SO cute.  You can watch it on youtube:

 It almost made me want to cut my long hair because i thought it was so cute!  You’ll look like YOU…imagine that!  You will look beautiful with your hair short, long, or whatever in between. Many brides aren’t doing the up-do anymore anyway…..i’m doing half up, and i’d do it all down except i tuck it behind my ears out of habit and i don’t want that look on my wedding day.  It’s your day, and it’s your hair, and i think it should look like you.  Good luck!

Ugh don’t do it! You want to be you, not some bridal version of you. The hairstyle you described sounds beautiful, and I think you should go with it. I think I am just the opposite of what your hairstylist suggests. I want my hair short for the wedding and then to grow out for pigtails afterwards!

I have short hair, too, about the same length and I have decided – firmly – that I will not be growing it out just to put it up. How silly! My fiance and I both prefer my hair short so I think it’s nuts to grow it out just to wear it up for one day. I am considering something along the lines of what you mentioned, although I will probably go with a white rose or gardenia, but at any rate, just pinning a few pieces here or there and adding a beautiful flower and making sure I feel like me on my wedding day. Rock it, girl! If your hairstylist doesn’t want to get on board, consider finding an alternate for your wedding day. 🙂 Glad there’s another short haired bride out there with me!

SHORT-HAIRED BRIDE NUMBER 3 HERE!!! I have a very similar haircut to what you’re describing, and have ALWAYS had short hair. I love my hair short and I can’t imagine not looking like "me" on our big day! My Fiance agrees! Keep it short, it’s YOU!!!

PS- I AM a hairstylist….dump him and find a new stylist all together! Does he not know you well enough to figure out what you like and what you don’t!? If he is that out of line with your wedding hair what’s next, a color or cut that’s not what you want either! Start asking everyone with cute sassy short hair where they get it done!

Short-haired brides unite!!

Shortly after the engagement I had a moment of insanity when I thought I’d grow my hair out to my shoulders to put it up … eight weeks later I was in the stylist’s chair begging her to chop it back to my normal bob.  I look 100% better with short hair, and I don’t want to have to triple the amount of time I spend on my hair every day for a year just so I can wear it in a "bridal" updo.

Here’s my current hairstyle inspiration:  http://www.brides.com/beauty/hairstyles/feature/slide/175308/detail/175311

I probably won’t go quite so curly, but I like the idea of securing my bangs loosely to the sides with clips and taking a curling iron to the back for body.

I also have short hair, and debated about growing/fake hair, but decided that just wasn’t me. I am with you all! I am going to use a feather flower. So I take you guys aren’t wearing a veil? I am leaning towards no veil…let the short hair shine!

Sure, if you want to look like some kind of generic bride idea rather than like yourself, go right ahead and get a hairstyle that’s not you at all!!  Maybe you could just invest in a set of extensions, or a wig.  If you just want to look like a beautiful, brilliant version of yourself, find a stylist who makes the haircut you already love look fantastic.  I did nothing different with my hair, except to have my stylist "do" it that morning – because, frankly, I’m afraid to put as much product in it as she does, which ensures that when I do it myself it’s flat before the end of the day.  The result was great looking hair – all afternoon and evening – just the absolutely best looking version of my normal hair (which comes to a little below the jawline and is a little curly) I have ever seen.  The photos are stunning – and more importantly, they look like me – not like me trying to look totally different from the way I look every day – just like the gorgeous version of me that I have in my head on my best days.

I think your stylist is being a bit silly, and is just thinking of their own fun in creating an updo.  I think your idea sounds very chic.

I’m rocking the chin-length bob too!  And as I’ve been styling the same hairstlye for years now, I actually feel more confident doing it myself than having a hairdresser do it. This is my inspiration shot 🙂 http://www.dcnearlyweds.com/uploaded_images/Jen-Fariello-728917.jpg

And for those of you who still want to wear a veil, like me–you can!  Check out this tip: http://www.veilshop.com/When-the-Comb-Wont-Stay-In-Your-Hair_ep_60-1.html .I’ve already testest it, and it works great!

Count me in as a member of the sort haired brides club! But when I say short, I mean short. Like, 2-inch long hair short. I considered growing mine out to chin – length for my big day, but my fiancee hated the idea! He told me he wanted to at least recognize the woman he is marrying under all the tulle and fluff lol. Instead of a veil, I am doing a birdcage with much smaller combs made especially for me by MyraKim on Etsy. She is also making me a spectacular flowered headband to wear for my reception. If I had long hair, I wouldn’t have even thought to go with the beautiful, unique pieces I have found. You all are right on the money in keeping your hair the way you like it.

I say keep your hair short and find a great accessory to dress it up (like a flower as you mention).  When I styled my short wedding hair, I was inspired by a spread in InStyle Weddings.  I can’t find the spread now (it was from Spring 2007) but here’s a similar feature:

 Be yourself!  Good luck!

I’m a member too! I’ve been "growing" my hair out for a couple months now, thinking that maybe I wanted it a little longer for the wedding, but just got off the phone with my stylist to chop it off. By the time of my wedding it will be just a bit below my chin, and I’m planning on doing just loose curls with a fun flower or something to pull a bit off my face.
