Updo for Short Hair
Just because have a short cut doesn’t mean you can’t don a glamorous updo on your wedding day. Separating the front half of your hair from the back before styling will help create the illusion of length. Then, twist and pin the back section before curling the front pieces away from the face.

High Braided Crown
Though this braid, often called a Dutch or inside out braid, looks complex, it’s actually rather easy to do yourself. Start behind the ear, and then split your hair into three sections and begin braiding as you would a French braid, making sure to curve it around the crown of your head. Once you’ve reached the nape of your neck, finish the style with a regular braid, secure, and pin to meet the starting point.

You don’t have to pin your hair back to achieve the right look for your wedding—even for a black tie affair. These retro waves are easy to style and just as stunning as any updo. Simply create a deep side part, curl and clip small sections of hair, and let sit. Once the curls have cooled, remove the clips and brush through for those Gatsby-glam waves.

Textured and voluminous doesn’t necessarily mean messy—and this striking style is the perfect example. The loose, imperfect chignon is a little bit playful, a little bit romantic, and simply perfect for a more casual affair—like a beach wedding.
