The top wedding hairstyle tips:

  • Consider hair accessories: Michelle says: “When it comes to wedding hair, shorter hair is definitely easier to style but there are less fancy options open to you. With short hairstyles a hair accessory is a great way to complete the look. For example a floral piece will really bring out a short cut.
  • Get a cut: Alexander says: “Be sure to have a cut a week before. Shorter styles will need to be cut more regularly than longer styles to ensure they keep their shape.”
  • Consider extensions: Alexander says: “If you have short hair but want to create long, flowing hair you might want to consider extensions. Halo hair extensions will give you stunning voluminous hair in a matter of moments.”
  • Mix up products: Michelle says: “When styling shorter styles try using a leave in conditioner and a strong hold gel for the perfect mix of control and conditioning.”
  • Carry serum: Alexander says: “It’s a good idea to carry serum in your handbag. Use throughout the day to control any frizz or flyaways that may appear.”
