Last week when Road to Mrs. blogger Nadine expressed her frustration regarding the limited hairstyle choices for brides with short hair, I knew other planning brides must have been experiencing the same issue. So below are a few styles that are Triple B wedding day worthy for both relaxed (or blow-dried/flat ironed straight) and natural hair. Feel free to print these images out and take them to the salon, ladies!
Short-haired brides, the ultimate choice is yours but be encouraged to strut down the aisle with a pixie-cut, chin-length bob or curly fro. From my very unofficial research, brides (and their spouses) are most happy when they look like a glammed-up version of their usual self. If you normally wear your hair in a Halle Berry inspired cut, don’t feel obligated to get a Beyonce-esque weave past your bra strap for your wedding day. However a track or two to enhance your current look certainly wouldn’t hurt anyone — your stylist will advise you on what is best for your face shape, veil if you opt for one and your gown. Whatever hairstyle you eventually choose, be sure to own it because confidence is by far our best accessory!
*BONUS* Take a moment to view my homie Nana’s gorgeous wedding trailer. There’s a ton of bridal inspiration in it and she effortlessly rocked a sleek asymmetric short cut that nearly two years after her big day still looks fresh and modern.
Which of the above is your favorite style for a bride and why?
