    @Eckle:  

    Hi there, the lace on your dress is gorgeous! Definitely shouldn’t cover that up 🙂

    I love the hair inspiration pics. Are you planning to do your hair with a low profile or with more volume on top like in the first inspiration photo? The problem with headbands is that they will flatten your hair down, or create “lumps” where the stylist has worked very hard to get volume on the top.

    I’m not sure if you discussed it in the previous threads, but would a birdcage veil or a fascinator work? or maybe a small flower clip. There are lots of cheap ones on etsy. I got mine for $10.

    I love the headband! I think it would look great with a long veil, longer than either of the previous two veils. I think they were too short. But a fingertip or chapel length veil just at the top of the bun would look great 🙂

    Hey you’re smiling 😀 

    The KM hairdo is really volume heavy on the top, and the headband might restrict some of that…

    Idk, I think your face shape is on the longer side, and it’d be more flattering if you could get more volume on the sides of your face rather than on the top? Call me creepy/stalker but I took a look at your E-pics and I thought you looked lovely with your hair down (ie. volume around your face). And to be even more creepy, how long is your hair now?

    Looks great, and will look even cuter with the lace flowers! I personally like A the best.

    @Summer_Rose:  I was going to ask the same thing about a bird cage veil or fascinator

    I would like to see it with a couple small strands pulled out by the ears and curled softly. Something is making it look “severe” still to me. I think that might soften the look. I do like the headband better than the veil!

    Oh right I see. It’s driving me crazy because I know this girl who does an updo with braids on the side and a bun-ish feature in the back, but all the volume is on the sides, and I can’t find her site Frown

    @Eckle:  There ya go, Eckle! No more Amish, no more lunch lady. Just a pretty way to jazz up your amazing hairstyle without hiding the beautiful lace on your dress. Good job! 

    FWIW I applaud you for trying with the other ones as well. I know you got a lot of less than constructive criticisms on them but you weren’t afraid to try a new style. You had an idea in your mind and instead of waiting for someone else to create it you did it all yourself.

    @Eckle:  Oh if that’s the case, then the headband should be great! If you’re looking to add the lace flowers, either A or B would work wonderfully 🙂
