They're proof that you don't need long hair for a special occasion.
Gone are the days of thinking you can't do much to style short hair. The options are many for those who are pro-bob, pro-wixie, or pro-*insert whatever short haircut your heart desires*. This is especially true if you're looking for a glamorous way to short hair updo for your wedding day.
Go the classic route with a chic bun or low chignon, or turn to something with a bit of an edge like a fauxhawk. To break down the options, Tresemmé celebrity stylist Nai'vasha and Dyson ambassador and celebrity stylist Matthew Collins share their picks and styling tips.

Short and sweet, the pixie is a short hair classic for your big day. Nai’vasha recommends giving it movement and dimension with some short waves: Simply style hair with Tresemmé One Step Blow Out Cream and use a small flat-iron to get that bend.
Textured Soft Bun
It doesn't get more classic than a bun: Add some volume and texture to a lob with slight waves, says Collins. Using a straightening iron, create waves before pulling hair back into a low-to-mid ponytail (depending on the length you're working with). Then wrap hair around and pin it loosely to give it a more effortless vibe.
Braided Faux Hawk
For something fun and out of the box, Nai’vasha is a huge fan of a braided fauxhawk. "This style is a great option for brides with naturally coily hair types to add a bit of edge to their look," she says.
Why save that floral crown for your festival needs? Collins likes this hair accessory for an ethereal feel to your wedding hairstyle. Opt for a center part and hair tucked behind the ears for an elegant finish.
A short pineapple ponytail is another pick from Nai'vasha for a chic wedding hairstyle; she recommends using a small curling wand to create uniform curls. Once your entire head is curled, use bobby pins to secure curls to the top of your head and set the look with a flexible hold hairspray. Try Matrix Fixer Hairspray.
Pinning back your hair is a simple way to elevate any hairstyle, especially for short hair. Collins suggests adding some waves for volume that looks soft and romantic.
Bob With Soft Glam Waves
For Old Hollywood glamour, opt for a bob with soft waves. To do just that, work in mousse at your roots, then spritz a texture spray to the ends of your hair for added volume, says Collins. We love Redken Dry Texturizing Finishing Spray.
