Hair Romance loves brides with short hair and a lovely reader was looking for more wedding hairstyle inspiration for wearing a veil with short hair. Sian asks:

I’m getting married in September, and all my friends and family (well not ALL, but a fair sized group of them) are all encouraging me to grow my hair out for my wedding. I’ve had quite short hair for a while now, in a kind of choppy pixie cut, and I really don’t want to. I’ve been looking at what pictures I can find, but as I’m wearing a veil for mine, I was wondering if anyone had some pictures of funky styles with a veil for short haired brides?

It all depends on the type of veil you want to wear but there’s no reason you can’t wear a veil with short hair. So often brides wear upstyles with a veil so it’s a similar look to short hair. Here are some wedding hairstyle ideas for brides with short hair wearing veils:

And my favourite short haired bride, Audrey Hepburn.

I wore a veil on my wedding day because when else do you get the chance? Did you wear a veil when you tied the knot? What’s your dream wedding hairstyle?

I did wear a veil on my wedding day – and I had very, very short hair! I opted for a tiara, with a shoulder length veil. But if I had to do it again, I would opt for a headband like the one shown above. So pretty!

Wedding season is ON so this post is right on time. My hair was short
For my wedding and with much skill I swooped it into a beautiful
French twist. And wore a veil. It works and my husband said I looked
“stunning”. Need I say more?? Haha.
