How did you decide how to wear your hair?
What were the deciding factors for choosing the style you did?
I’m severely struggling with what to choose…I need to choose 2 for my hair trial and I seriously cannot narrow them down (and my tastes are all over the map, up, half up, down, side braid/pony, regular pony tail,…)
This is proving more difficult than picking a dress LOL, help me please!!

I am an Encore Bride… lol, so that had a lot to do with what I chose… and WHY
I made it a point that this time round… my Wedding would be very different from my first.
My first Wedding I had shortish hair (natural colour dark), and wore it down.
This time, I grew it long (coloured it light), and wore it up.
Then like many Brides I did the Post-Wedding / Honeymoon chop.
Lol, and changed my look completely again.
I have spent a lot of money on my hair since my Engagement back in April, with all the changes I`ve made.
Hope this helps,

I’m going to have my hair curled and down. I chose this because it’s easy and I don’t have to have bobby pins in my hair (they give me a headache). Plus if I get sick of it, I can just tie it up in a ponytail. For your trial maybe try two very different things, like an updo and then your hair down?

@beautifulmama28: I wanted it different to how i usually wear it, which is just down. I don’t like wearing my hair up, so that wasn’t an option, so went for half up.

I’m an encore bride too!!! lol!!!!!!!!!!!
My first one really had a lot to do with the veil I wanted. The veil dictated that my hair be down, so I just had to work with that.
This time I’m not having a veil so I’m doing a low, lose bun.
For me, I look at other wedding pics and look at the hair I DONT like…..and what I noticed what I dont’ like hair that looks super stiff, super fancy, and super done. It’s just not me. And even though this is my wedding, I still want to look like a wedding version of ME. So while there are SO MANY lovely styles out there people are doing……..most of them just aren’t who I am. I’m just not a fancy girl! That’s been the overwhelming deciding factor for most of the choices…….I want to feel comfortable and I want to look at the pictures and recognize myself.

I wore it curled and mostly down. I don’t think I look like “me” with an updo. I just like the naturalness of hair mostly down.

I wore mine up with lots of extensions in it so it was nice and thick. I wish I could have worn it down, because I think it would have been more flattering, but my hair won’t hold a curl at ALL in humidity and it was SO humid the day of our wedding!

<— you can see my hair a bit in my profile pic. I tried to go with my style. I knew i wanted it down – I don’t like the back off my neck. I wanted a big hair accessory so, I adapted it to that. My look was vintage/light/ romantic – so soft curls were a clear choice. What is the inspiration for ure dress? i.e. Highly sophisticated, clean lines, would be IMO a tight bun. Hope this helps.

@beautifulmama28: I liked how the model of the dress that I got had her hair so I went with that. I thought it matched the dress. I’m totally not creative when it comes to hair.

I wanted easy and out of my face. I hate when my hair is in my eyes. I did a sock bun!

@This Time Round: I am an encore bride too 🙂 except I never got a wedding the first time around lol. I am contemplating the post wedding chop too, at least a few inches (hair is down to bra strap right now so sick of it lol).
@housebee: yes, i’m leaning towards all down and a total updo for my first two, but I love the romantic halfup dos I see as well, …although not sure they would work with my headband , i need to consider that.
@Ivelanded: i love the loose do looks as well,…I think thats why I keep going back to wearing it down, i have very thick hair and it curls up well (actually it will be waves because I do not want curls period lol, I’ve even considered completley straight as FI likes it when I straighten my hair). Here is the updo i’m leaning towards if I choose up: (#2 on the right, but I have a triple crystal headband versus the flowers)

I wanted a fun up-do, plus I considered wind as a factor and how it would work with my veil.

@MrsTVLover: ok…this I can relate too. I’ve never ever ever had my hair done in an updo and liked it, EVER lol I’ve had my hair done up probably 6-7 times in my life and hated it, usually ripped it out before said event lol
@Wed2Attn: i’m hoping its not humid at mine, begining of june…hopefully lol
@interleukine: the inspiration for my dress was vintage (loads of lace!) but still slightly modern, its a dropped waist ball gown all lace, but the top portion has sequins here and there for a tiny bit of sparkle.
@Atalanta: I actually thought of that, but my dress model was pictured with a bun and thats a no go for me LOL

I chose to wear my hair out the day of my wedding. My hair has a hard time holding a curl it left down. Plus I didn’t want to be too hot while dancing around. Up was perfect for me I just threw in a Pretty headpiece and veil
