The site showcases stylists’ professional expertise and promotes the latest industry innovations. Through smart, conversational content, Salon Secret brings stylists to their clients in a new way.

Your wedding day brings with it not only a whirlwind of emotions, but a ton of stress as well. The last thing you should worry about as a bride is what to do with your hair! If you’re not keen to relax your short natural locks, or have a weave installed for your special day, we feel you. And, we’ve got just what you need to nail your short bridal hairstyle the first time.

Shave it Off

The best part about this look is that you can totally get away with a short, shaved hairstyle, leaving all the focus on your jewellery and wedding gown. You won’t have to style it, and it won’t get in your way. Frankly, we’re bummed we didn’t think of this sooner.

Puff it Up

This style is ideal for those who want to grow out their natural hair and still look super elegant on their wedding day. Use an afro comb to lift the hair off your head and make use of a product like Mizani Twist and Coil Jelly to twist your locks for a more defined look. Pair striking makeup and delicate earrings and you’ll be a vision in white!

Add a Headband

Adding accessories to short natural hair is a simple yet effective way to jazz up your hairstyle. A white headband, bedazzled to your liking, will transform a natural short hairdo into a fuss-free appearance perfect for the special day! Doing this also adds a touch of true authenticity to your look, accentuating your locks where they sit.

About that Veil

What’s a beautiful wedding gown without an elegant veil to match? A short hairstyle means you can dial the extravagance up. We recommend a veil that covers a portion of your face, keeping that mystery alive until your groom-to-be removes it when the time is right.

So, while women with short hair may feel like they’re short of options when it comes to their bridal hairstyle, the reality is that it’s quite the opposite! With your hair out the way, literally and figurately, you can focus solely on enjoying your special day.
