I have my hair and make-up trial on Friday and I’m a little torn about letting my FI see me afterward. I want to leave it in as long as I can so I can really tell if it will stay put on the wedding day, but I don’t want to ruin the surprise for my FI. Avoiding him the whole day isn’t really an option either.
For those who are curious, here’s the “do”. I also had a custom-made headband that we’ll try out, but I’ll switch that out for an every-day headband if I decide to leave the hair in all day. And yes, there’s a braid. I love this hair style so much!!!
(Also, I have very thin hair, so you can see why I’m concerned about the curls staying put all day… I may be forced into an up-do if it doesn’t work out on Friday!

I would say it’s more important to find out if the hairdo has staying power than to avoid letting FI see you. If it’s a choice between taking it down early (and maybe having it fall early on the wedding day) and spoiling the surprise, go ahead and show him. It probably won’t look EXACTLY the same anyway.

I let my FI see me after my hair & make up trial. As a matter of fact, we had our engagement photo session right after. It didn’t matter much to me because it’s the whole package that I want him to see. He’ll forget all the bits and pieces anyway.

I had my hair trial last week and I let him see it. (If you want to see it, take a look here)
I don’t think he won’t remember, but I think it will look a lot different with a wedding dress…
BTW: Since I won’t let him see the wedding dress, I at least wanted to know if he likes my hairdo!

I haven’t had mine yet (wedding still a year away!) but I will let him see when I do – because I want to be sure he still feels I look like ‘me’ – don’t want him feeling like he’s marrying someone else on the day!! 😉

My trial is in two weeks, on a Saturday and in the early morning. There is no way I could go the day without seeing him. I figure it won’t be exactly like the wedding day and I won’t be having my makeup done at that time so the full effect won’t be there. I would LOVE to not show him so it could be a huge surprise but I just don’t see how it would work.

I didn’t check a box on the poll, because yes, I’ll ‘let’ him see – but it’s not because I don’t think he’ll remember. 🙂 It’s just not a very big deal to us. Plus I’ll want his feedback, especially since I NEVER wear make up (literally maybe 3 times for costume parties in the past 6 years).

I had my hair and makeup trials last Friday and he begged to see when I got home. My 7yo came up with the idea of ‘redoing’ my hair as a joke so we pulled down the back and called it my “wedding mullet”. He tried so hard to be sweet and supportive but finally broke down and told me he hated it! I had to admit we played a joke on him 😉

I’m sure he’ll see it, just because we spend so much time together that he’s bound to see it anyways – it’s more important to me to see if it will last all day! Plus, he won’t remember what it looks like, I’m sure!

yeah i’m sure i’ll show him when i get home…. he won’t remember, ha! he also hates, hates lipstick on me so i want to see if he thinks what i’m wearing is too dark. (seriously he hates lipstick!)

Wow, I hadn’t even thought about this – good point! My trial is the day before the wedding (we’re getting married away from where we live), so he probably will see me! May even be at the hotel while it happens…hmmm…

I had my hair and makeup trials a few weeks ago (seperately) and he saw both. It isn’t a big deal for him or I because I didn’t have both done together and didn’t have the dress on.

I’m trying to time my hair & makeup trial for another friend’s wedding. We have a lot of the same guests so a ton of people will see it but I don’t mind. I’m guessing if it can withstand me jumping around and dancing as a guest at a wedding all day it’ll stay for my wedding too. I’ll just add the flowers to my hair on my wedding day. 😉

I did show the hubs my hair and makeup trial once it was completed. I wanted him to see it to get his input and he definitely gave it to me. Good thing though because I actually agreed with some of his suggestions. So when the actual day came, I shared my thoughts to my artists and they happily made the changes. Worked out great!

He’ll be seeing my make up trial – I’m having it the day of our e-pics! I don’t know if I’ll let him see the hair trial or not – probably I really do like his opinions on that stuff.
