@Seattlegrl:  I did my own hair. My only warning is make sure your venue isn’t in a windy area. Had I not gotten married by the ocean my hair would’ve been fine – my hair looks a lot like yours. But I didn’t account for the wind and the hair died.

I’m considering it, but I have really NO experience. The only reason I’m thinking about it is b/c I don’t have a relationship with any hair stylists here and it would be cheaper. My hair usually does what I tell it to… but it’s naturally wavy/curly and I’d want it a very certain way.


Basically I’m hoping there’a youtube how-to vid. Or a miracle.

@Seattlegrl:  I did my own hair as well and thought Iwould be stressed it waasn’t as bad as I expected. I did do multiple trials at home to test out the style, perfect it, and play with little variations- mine was up though. We got married on the beach in mexico in july so anything down with curls or volume would have fallen flat quickly and it was a bit windy. By the wedding day I had done the same style 4-5 times before so that calmed my nerves big time, and I gave myself an extra hour’s time to do my hair so I didn’t have to rush or stress the timeline. It’s totally do-able but takes a bit of prep ahead of time to test out the look, products, weather, and holding power… 

It’s a very pretty style you have pictured- looks alot like my hair when it’s down and pretty (aka not in a ponytail)!

I wouldn’t have, but if that’s the style you want and you can do it yourself, why trust someone else with it, when she will probably not get the same result? Save the money.

@Seattlegrl:  I would weigh carefully how likely you are to be stressed vs. how annoying it is to pay money for something you could do yourself. There are times when paying the money not to be stressed is totally worth it!

I am fairly certain I will be doing my own hair. I want basically the same style as you, and everytime I get my hair done at the salon, I always end up re-styling it myself anyway lol.
