Inspiration: Wedding Hair Ideas & Accessories for Brides rocking a Bob or Lob

Johanna Talleraas

Morning lovelies,

The Bob and Lob have made a comeback recently, and every now and then some of you stylish and fashionable brides get in touch to ask what the options are to style or accessories shorter bridal hair - so I've put together a little and by no means extensive collection of my favourite ideas for shorter wedding hair for you!

Let's start with the obvious - just wear it the way you always do! If you have shorter hair, don't feel the need to dress it up and change it, only because you are getting married. If you have a contemporary dress with a lot of detail or a statement element such as the beauty above, you might want to go modern and just let the dress and a large bouquet do the talking!

Next up, gorgeous braids and twists. They are not only for long hair, in fact I think they are extra gorgeous for brides with shorter hair. Here you could accessorise with a simple hair flower or sparkly hair comb or even a simple veil.

Another lovely option is swept to the side, as seen in the image below. I really love this, it's sophisticated and elegant and again it would be lovely with a small accessory as well.

Personal favourite, and how could it not be: I love a bob with a flower crown for a bride! It's so cute and boho and contemporary all at the same time, I think you can't go wrong! With a simple dress it will give your bridal look a modern, while informal and relaxed feel. With a classic lace dress and flowers in muted, dusty colours it will ooze elegance and loveliness.

And how pretty is this option? An asymmetric flower headpiece will look especially stunning with shorter hair. If that's too much going on above your face for you, consider wearing a large flower comb at the back, or a flower crown which is slimmer towards the face and has larger flowers at the back. This will also create a lovely effect when walking down the aisle, and look super summery with a low back.

Of course another really lovely, classic option for a traditional or minimalist bride is a simple headband, perfectly suitable with pretty much any style of dress or wedding and easy to wear.

I hope you feel a little inspired by this - if you have any questions regarding accessorising shorter bridal hair please let me know. If you have fallen in love with any of our designs but are unsure how it will hold/ be secured in your hair for your wedding don't hesitate to get in touch, I'm always more than happy to help!
