Bob Hairstyles for a Wedding

Updated April 17, 2017

Planning for a wedding involves a lot of details, including figuring out how everyone is going to wear their hair. Some girls with shorter hair feel that they do not have as many options; however, bob cuts lend themselves to a number of classy and beautiful options that are perfect for the bride, bridal party, family members and other guests.

Up Do

Some ladies with shorter hair think that they cannot get their strands into an up do; however, that is not the case. Curling the majority of the hair on the top of the head adds both drama and romance. Brushing the front away from the face adds volume at the crown. Accessories such as tiaras, headbands, crowns or flowers are popular with this style. Although this style can be prone to collapsing, keeping hairspray handy for quick touch-ups ensures that it will last through the day.

Sleek and Chic

For ladies who want to keep their wedding day hair simple, a straightened style is the answer. This style works for any bob-length haircuts, particularly if it is styled right against the face. Attention will be drawn to the ladies' face and neck. Therefore, adding a shimmering piece of jewellery such as a necklace or earrings would be appropriate. The jewels will be seen because people are drawn to those features, and they will help to dress up the simple style.

Wild Waves

Adding some loose waves, curls and layers to the bob adds flair to the style. For a more relaxed vibe at a non-traditional beach wedding or an outdoor vineyard celebration, ladies can stop the styling there. For a more sophisticated affair at a church or elaborate reception hall, women may want to style the do a bit more by adding jewelled pins, flowers or other appropriate accessories.


Accessories are a major part of a bob hairstyle for a wedding, because they are so easily incorporated into the short locks, no matter if they are in tight curls, loose waves or any other style. A wide range of possibilities exist for hair accessories including, but not limited to, headbands, tiaras, fresh flowers, fake flowers, clips, decorative pins and more. Of course, traditional brides can choose from different veils to complete their hair as well.
