Short Notice Weddings!
Who invented the myth that you have to have long hair for your wedding? Why is that from the day we get engaged to the ‘D’ date we are stressed about growing our hair out for this sophisticated up-do? We all know that the brides that grow their hair out for their big day, end up chopping off all their locks shortly after the ‘I do’s.’ I mean do you really want to look back at your wedding photos and think, "Who’s that." Girls if you are a bride or just an attendant to this year’s wedding ceremony, it doesn’t matter how long you hair is, you too can have an elaborate hair-do. Times have changed and skills have become sharpened by stylists. More and more women are sporting an up to date funky chopped crop, so we all can sparkle at the party, measurements shouldn’t matter. We just need a few tricks to get us started.
Tricks to Dazzle!
Very Short/ Cropped & Spiky:
No matter what length, you can jazz it up and turn it around
- Curl the ends under all around the crown
- Finger pick them out with a light shine pomade. There is even pomade that comes with a sparkle in it to catch the eye of any on looker
- Change the parting at the front for a sleek middle split or a dramatic side swish
- You can also use glittery jeweled headbands, barrettes or clips to draw attention. If you don’t want anything sparkling, opt for a beautiful bright bloom
- A quick tuck behind the ear and your ready to start the main course
If your dress is retro chique go for a fingerwave set in a high gloss gel to recreate the elegance and sex appeal of a 40’s flapper. Short haired celebs sport this do all the time on the red carpet, it screams elegance!
Short layered/Mid length:
You ladies have an option you never dreamed would be possible. Even with a little bit of twisting on the sides you can mimic any long up-do
- If you have curly or wavy hair, wash and apply a curl activating product
- Lightly diffuse the hair upside-down to make full amounts of curl and lift at the root
- With the new added texture start taking small sections through the sides and back and twist them upwards
- Fasten each twisted section with a bobby pin, stick the pin facing downward into the section this will hide the pin and hold the hair. Blend the front in with your desired parting and you are left with a soft fountain inspired do
If you hair is thin and you feel your fountain is a bit sparse, you can always fill in the gaps with velcro jewels. They simply stick onto a strand of hair, and the jewels will reflect light and add volume to your hair-do.
When the ends that you are left with are too short to sprout a fountain you can add in some hair pieces
to add length and volume.
This style seems tricky to change. One length cut hair retains weight and demands a natural fall position; it is however cut this way. Miss Bobby cries no more! You can even make the change without the assistance of scissors or growing power
- Instead of blow-drying your bob under to show the shape, flip it out
- When all the ends are flipped out you can sweep the sides away from the face with a thin satin headband or fasten them back into a barrette
- If you choose either back comb the crown and smooth lightly to cause a dramatic boost of volume

You can also show up in sophisticated charm like Jennifer
. Working with a strong glossy gel slick all the hair back, working off a sleek parting and fasten everything with an elastic. Now I know you are left with a tiny nub of a tail, but here comes the tricky part.
Place an array of small budded roses around the tail; fasten each stem into place with a bobby pin. These will disguise the lack of length and leave you with a sweet aroma for the whole evening.
I suggest complementing this look with a more dramatic eye make-up, which will strengthen the finished result.
Now when the wedding invitation start rolling in, or you are stressing about your big day, worry about the dress because you have the hair covered!
