Bridal Bobs: 30 Ways To Style Short Hair For Your Wedding

Short hair is chic, stylish and easy to manage…except, perhaps, when you’re getting married.

Too short to wear up, not long enough to wear down, it can be quite the bridal conundrum.

But, that doesn’t mean you have to start growing out your hair the minute to clap eyes on your engagement ring. In fact, our Editor Claire Eliza went out of her way to cut her long locks into a short bridal bob for her wedding day!

If your short do is part of your personal style, then make it work for you on your wedding day.

Look to celebrities who work their own versatile bobs, (Julianne Hough, Fearne Cotton, Marion Cotillard, and January Jones all work their bobs in lots of different styles), for ways to work your bob into some seriously stylish shapes.

From a sexy tousled look to retro set curls, sleek blowouts to sweet hair accessories, the list of ways you can style your ‘do is literally, longer than your hair!

Bridal bobs can be just as versatile as mid-length hair, you just have to think outside the box.

Lucky for you, we’ve found 30 show-stopping manes, to give you a little hair-spiration…

So chic!

It makes me want to cut my waist-long hair straight off.  (*Note to self, it didn’t work the last time, DON’T do it again!).

I’m particularly fond of the bouffant, and just a simple sleek blow-dry. But I love the idea of adding ribbons, flowers and accessories to your short ‘do too.
