Here are some tips and advices from our bride with short hair and wedding blogger!
How does having short hair has influenced your purchasing process and your choice of wedding hair accessories?
What I would do with my hair on the wedding day was one of the most complicated decisions of the wedding planning! I intended to keep my hair short because it had been 2 years since I went for a pixie cut and I didn’t want to let them grow just for the wedding. But then the options for short hair, as well as inspirations, are very limited.
Despite the hours spent on Pinterest looking at hairstyles ideas for ”short” hair (which are actually bobs or mid-length cuts) I decided to opt for a cute accessory. As I really had no length, combs were not possible. So I opted for a crown.
According to you, what are the essential criteria to be considered for the bride with short hair on her accessory choices?
Shemust first consider the exact length of her hair. Will there be enough length to hang a comb, something that goes around the head, or is it more appropriate to go with a headband? I think the bride should also choose based on the look she want for her bridal outfit or the general theme of the wedding. Is it vintage? Or you want something more bohemian, romantic… modern perhaps? With or without color?
Your advice to future brides?
Take your time and above all, stay calm! I spent a lot of time exploring the options, I created a ”database” of my favorite products, determined a budget before making a final decision… Get loads of information and feel free to contact sellers for more info! In the end I decided on a simple flower crown. For the night I found by chance a lace headband during a trip to Paris! My keywords here: patience and determination!
