Your husband-to-be fell in love with you, every detail. He loves your body, he loves your mind, he loves your soul.

Your wedding hairstyle doesn’t need extensions. In fact, short hair can bring even more options to the table. Short hair is light, feminine, and frees up the face. One of our favorite short hair looks is side-swept. Side swept hair leaves one side completely exposed. This lets your cheekbones, jaw line, neck and shoulder out in the open. This is perfect for ornate earrings and necklaces, and gives your wedding photographer the opportunity to literally shoot two sides of you.
