The veil is the iconic bridal image and can be worn with any length hair. For the traditional bride, this can be paired with various wedding hair accessories. For short hair, keep it simple with an understated headband or this gorgeous crystal feather hair comb by Vera Wang.
2. Birdcage Veil
The proportions of the chin-length birdcage veil, also known as a fascinator, is a flattering choice for short-haired brides. Although vintage-inspired, this abbreviated look can also be totally modern. It’s a combination of your hair, wedding dress, and the fascinator.
These are lovely because the blusher veil covers the face during the ceremony but can be tucked back and pinned for the rest of the big day. Of course you want to get as much wear out of your bridal wear as you can!
The bridal headband is one of the top wedding trends right now. Influenced by the opulence of Downton Abbey, headbands are stunning, dramatic, and easy to wear! There are two main styles of headbands. One, like depicted on the right, has a continuous design across the headband. They usually have an elastic or ribbon ties. The perfect hairstyle with this ‘Serena’ Head Wrap would be a sleek and shiny bob or something with volume at the back.
The second type of wedding headband is an asymmetrical option with a focal point to one side, usually flowers and/or crystals. This is a traditional headband and is perfect for extra short hair and even pixie cuts.
4. Something Different
We’re not talking about Carrie Bradshaw’s bird hat but something unique (and feathered) can transform short hair and add much needed volume. Check out this fun and fabulous feather hair accessory or check out this headband version from Urban Outfitters.
If you’re going all out for your big day, a tiara or crown could be the accessory for you! There are the sparkly beauty queen crowns we all coveted as kids plus many modern, elegant, and designer options.
This Ana Khouri gold tiara will wow the crowd. The price tag for the 14K gold is out of reach for most brides (maybe Kim will wear it for the big day with Kanye). There are lots of similar and budget-friendly options at stores like ASOS. Have fun finding the right crown that works with your hair color and cut.
