I think we can all agree that this is a major DO. My sweet friend Jenna, who has had short hair for as long as I've known her (nearly ten years now!) got engaged recently, and found herself wondering if she should grow her hair out for her wedding day. You can see her adorable haircut in her engagement photos below.

I think a lot of women have a preconceived notion of brides having long, flowing locks. Personally, I think short hair is incredibly modern, chic, and stylish. But the most important thing is that you look like you on your wedding day. If you love your short hair, you don't want to look back at photos of you with long hair and wonder who that unfamiliar person is! Even Audrey Hepburn, the epitome of all things elegant, rocked a pixie cut on her wedding day! Need I say more?

Short hair also lends itself beautifully to headpieces, headbands, and other fun accessories. Krista, an adorable bride of mine, wore her pixie with pride and looked absolutely stunning.

So brides, what do you think? Are you growing your hair out or chopping it off? I'm always admiring pixie cuts but haven't taken the plunge yet!
