Looking for a new way to wear your short locks for your wedding day? Or maybe you've recently cut your hair shorter (gave into the lob trend, did we?) and you're still figuring out how to style it. First thing's first: Think about your wedding location. If you're getting married outdoors, you'll want to make sure the hairstyle you choose won't get blown out of place by strong wind or friz out during summertime humidity.

And don't forget about the veil! If you're opting for a long cathedral-length wedding veil make sure the aisle is clear of anything it might catch on as you're walking toward your fiance. (But don't worry too much—Audrina Patridge had a veil malfunction and she still said it was the best day of her life!) With that in mind, check out our favorite veiled #hairinspo for short hairstyles.
