I NEVER wear my hair up, first off…so this was a big deal! But I figured I’d try it for the big day.
Dress: Allure 8800
Everyone told me to get an updo because of the intricate beading and low back…plus FI loves my hair up.
I asked for a messy low “chignon” (silly word for bun) with wispies everywhere.
Sorry for the crappy quality!
The stylists said low buns are actually THE most popular hairstyle, get the most requests etc. Is this too mainstream or is it unique? I guess that’s my main concern.
Also anyone else with low/messy updos, post your pics! It’s such a fun casual look. 🙂

Thanks for the feedback so far! Here are SUPER crappy photoshopped images of me in the dress + hair trial (kind of an Exorcist-tilted-neck but whatever, haha!)
Kind of LOL-worthy but it’s fun to sort of get an idea. Haha.
Anyone with an intricate dress having their hair down?

Overall, I love it. But especially in the first photo the back looks really unfinished. I know it’s supposed to be “wispy” but it’s something that would bother me. That’s just my personal opinion though. I really like the front and the top I just wish it was a bit more polished at the back.

I love it! I think it looks great on you and the flower’s super cute. It will look beautiful with that dress because they both have a very romantic feel to them.
I’m still deciding between half-up/half-down and messy bun, but if I go messy bun those pics were also my inspiration!

@thursdayschild: You’re right, she was SO confused when I asked to make it look more natural…I guess most people have the same preference you do. I’m kind of off-beat apparently. 🙁 Haha
@nkatsa: The stylist said the 2 most requested looks are bun and half up. It’s hard to decide but if your hair is medium-short length, half-up looks great! My hair is almost to my bum so it looked straggly unfortunately. Depending on the length, half-up looks amazing!
The makeup made me look like a drag queen (that’s why there are no face pictures), so I might end up doing it myself.
Did anyone else love the hair only, or makeup only, instead of both?
