My hair trial is this weekend and I am wondering… should I let my fiance see or should it be a surprise? Silly question but I find myself going back and fourth. I want to wear it all day to see how it holds but then fiance would have to see!
Thoughts?? What did/are you do/ doing?

Don’t let him see it. If you can avoid seeing him that day, then do so. I’m old fashioned in that he shouldn’t know what you’ll look like till you walk down that aisle.
The only thing my husband did see were my shoes. He’s only 2 inches taller than me, and I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t be taller or the same height as him.

I feel torn between it.. I don’t want her ( yes her) to see it.. but not sure I can avoid her all day!

if you don’t do a first look how in the heck did/do fit all your pics in without being rushed or late to the reception??

@LBalazi: We had our reception 2 hours after the ceremony. Our reception hall was only 25 minutes away, so we left plenty of time for photos. However, we could have used about another hour. The limo driver decides to take a really long route to the hall! I wanted to kill him.

I am DIYing… so my “hair trials” have been in my house in my bathroom. It’s fine if FH sees it. Honestly my hair is an extra short pixie, nothing I do with it will shock him or be anything he’s never seen before. I don’t think he really would notice it that muchh… so I voted it doesn’t matter, he won’t remember what he’s seen, and he won’t even make the connection when he sees the whole picture.

I’m letting my fiance see because I want his opinion. I’m doing a pretty simple look though, so maybe that’s why I don’t care if he sees. I plan to wear my hair down, either straight or beach waves. We also live together, so it’ll be hard to avoid him anyways.
If you don’t think you can avoid your fiance all day, I don’t think it’s a big deal if she sees you. On your actual wedding day when she sees your for the first time she’ll still be filled with the same emotions she would have been filled with whether or not she has seen a certain hairstyle on your before.
But if you think it’s a big deal then try to avoid her. You could let her know that on the day of your hair trial you don’t what to see her because you want your look to be a complete surprise. Hopefully then the two of you can work something out. 🙂

I can’t really and won’t avoid my fiance for an entire day so that he doesn’t see. That seems silly to me. Not to mention that I’m paying for this, so no, I won’t wipe it off and take my hair down, either. I’d also like his opinion.

Hmm…I haven’t really thought about that. Honestly, I don’t think he’d notice if I got my hair done or not!

I don’t know that men really care about hair lol. I’d just leave it til day off unless hes sort of groomzilla about it.

I think it would be fine if she saw you. Honestly, it’s just hair and makeup. Besides it might help if she’s sees it because then she can give her opinion. I’d hate to not show my FI and then found out that he hated the lipstick color I picked and that could have been changed had I known that information.
I plan to show my FI.

I plan on showing my FI my hair and make up. I want his opinion AND more importantly I want to be sure that it lasts and how see how it looks after multiple hours. I think just seeing your hair and make up in normal clothes is not going to anywhere near the same as seeing you on your wedding day in your dress, veil, jewelry etc. Plus, most guys (speaking from experience with mine haha) won’t even remember exactly how your hair and make up looked from the day of the trial and the wedding day. 😉

I went back and forth in my head how I felt on this recently too! At my last trim, my regular stylist played around with some ideas and asked if I wanted him to see or if she should style it regularly before I left. I didn’t care at first, but as I thought about it more, I decided I didn’t want him to see it until our first look. I just think it will be a little more special if everything is a surprise. I asked him and that was how he felt too. I have my real trial next week. I couldn’t be more excited! Good luck!

a hairstyle is just that, a hairstyle. i doubt it’ll be remembered. i don’t care if my FI sees my hair trial (if i have one). it just doesn’t matter to me. it’s not like the dress or the shoes or the finished product, you know?

I won’t have any choice but to let him see it, we’re getting married at a resort and I will be having them do my hair and hair trial, lol 🙂

I love my FI to death, but he’s got the attention span of Dori from Finding Nemo lol. He’s not one to remember detail. I showed him mine and a week later he asked me when I was going to get my hair done haha
Chances are, your guy won’t remember much anyway
