I had a pretty disasterous first run at Ulta, in which my updo was already exploding pins out of my hair before I even got out of the store. We were in NY, and luckily we got stuck there for another 5 days! So I rushed and booked another trial at a local salon. Not only did she do what I wanted (not what Ulta did!!) she did three trials in one! Lots of pics coming up!
First up is the dress, if that helps put the look together:
Right now I’m leaning towards something in the middle of 1 and 3, I like the way my hair frames my face, I feel like I look very round when everything is pulled back. I will be having some rosettes in my hair so I figure we can pull back maybe just a few pieces. We’re also adding a braid to one or both sides. OH! And I’m considering getting some bangs, but nervous it won’t work. Let me know what you think!!

They all look great, but I vote for the last one, all down.

Are you wearing a viel?
I really like the first one but just wanted to know what else was going into your hair.

@HisIrishPrincess: I have been leaning towards no veil throughout our engagement- I’m only 4’11” so I know a long veil will just shorten me even more. I thought I wanted a birdcage but I don’t think t works with down at all. Lately I’m leaning towards this, but I don’t know if it’s overkill with my dress…

I love the first hairstyle! I saved it as an inspiration for myself. That hairpiece is pretty too.

I like the first one and second one a lot. The last one just doesn’t seem like enough to me, but then depending on hair accessories it might be better.

You have awesome hair! I like the all down look the best.

I love your hair! I like the first one best, but you look beautiful in all of the pictures!

I voted for the all down, but then i changed my mind after I read how short you were. I myself am also short, and I know when I wear my hair down with large curls I feel like I look shorter. It may just be me, but I believe I give the impression of being taller when I have an updo. All of the styles are gorgeous, so you will look good either way!!

@MaiFuture: you’re right, i didnt want to get any accessories until i had the hairstyle but I think with flowers or a headband it would pull together.
thanks for all the comments! I know I’m going to be undecided until the day of, I think 1 is best if I bring some more curls to the front and add some braids, 3 made me feel really pretty the rest of the night though 🙂

1 and 3 are my favorites but I dont think you could go wrong with either!
