Sneaky peak...short hair for weddings!

Thursday, November 11, 2010
Fact no. 1 - There are lots of women out there with short hair.
Fact no. 2 - There are lots of women with short hair who are getting married.
Fact no. 3 - Short hair can look really elegant, sexy and feminine...

So why do we see so few images of short-haired brides in magazines or bridal blog features?

I'm attempting to answer this question by researching it in detail. (being a short-haired girl myself, I find this issue intriguing :-)

So watch this space as I will soon be revealing a portfolio of yummy, alternative hairstyles for those of you with gorgeous short locks. Forget growing your hair or spending a fortune on extensions. Just be your lovely self.

*I'm editing this post to include a message from Paige who is the person in the photo above! I am so delighted that she got in touch with me to share her thoughts -

"Hi. I just so happen to be the short-haired woman in that picture! It was so hard and frustrating to try to find examples and ideas of short-haired brides, so I'm glad that you're going to be compiling a portfolio of short-hair ideas for us short-haired girls out there -- and that I get to be a part of it! I love having short hair and feel it's so much more "me", so I definitely didn't want to change that for my wedding. Having short hair at my wedding made me feel wonderfully unique and "me"!

Watch out for my album of real short-haired brides coming soon! Read more of my articles about all types of hairstyles.

Rhonda's amazing!

Yes!!! I feel the same way!! It baffles me -- especially since short hair is so "in" right now. I knew from the beginning that I wouldn't be growing out my short hair for my wedding like every other bride I know. Can't wait to see your collection!

Hi Jada

Great - thanks for your thoughts on the subject! Have you had your wedding yet or are you still in the planning stages? I'd love to see some photos of you on 'the' day :-)

I should be posting the second part of this feature soon. I'm still talking with photographers and gathering some more images...as you can imagine, it's not the easiest task in the world but I love a challenge!

I'd love to chat to you in a bit more detail so drop me a line to aisling{at}rangoli.ie if you like.

Cheers

Where can I find more pictures of the redheaded bride? Her cut is exactly what I'm looking for.

Hi Maggie

I'd love to help ypu out but I seem to have lost the link to the full feature on the photographer's website.

You could get in touch with the photographer Rhonda Steed http://rhondasteed.com/ and ask her about the engagement photos for Paige Fizzell.

Could you please send me the link if you find it and I'll add it into my blog feature?

Thanks
Aisling
