Twirling chignon

Give your chignon a more relaxed feel by swapping a perfectly sculpted, single curve for a haze of curls and plaits. Weave a few sprigs of gypsophila through the top in place of a comb and you’ve created one of the most timelessly romantic short wedding hairstyles ever.

Statement veil

Veils aren’t only for long hair, they work beautifully with short wedding hairstyles too. Choose a veil to complement your gown and theme – think lace for a barn wedding, tulle for a country house and Swarovski-encrusted for all-out glam, then pin it to your locks for instant bride-factor.
