Elegant Hairstyles: Formal Style for Short Hair

As a on-site hairstylist focusing mainly on weddings, I can’t tell you how many emails I’ve received from brides with short hair who are frantic about “not having enough hair to style.” I’m here to reassure you; unless you have a pixie cut (and even that can be styled differently than you usually do) there is a way to elegantly style your hair!

I had the pleasure of styling Emily Chastain‘s hair for todays post, someone who has short hair and was perfect to model this style! Here is a before shot of her hair, which is a slightly inverted chin-length bob:

What I hear most often is: “I want curls, but if you curl my hair it will be so much shorter!” Depending on the type of curl your hairstylist does, your hair does not have to look extremely short compared to what you’ve started with. Yes, curling hair does make it a bit shorter, but it will not disappear. I have curled Emily’s hair with a flat iron and alternated the direction of the curls to create a more textured, natural looking curl… absolutely beautiful!

(A big thanks to Emily who also donned her wedding dress to model her hair for us!) :)
