Hi beauty bees! I have fine curly/wavy hair that’s mid back length, and I’m trying to decide on a hairstyle. My fiance loves my hair down (has professed to dislike updos, but he changes his mind all the time about things like that… men!) I was thinking about doing down for the first look/reception, and loosely up for the ceremony, since I like the formality of an “up” look with a veil. Has anyone ever done this? My fiance’s aunt is doing my hair, so more hassle for the stylist is not a concern :D. However, I’m concerned about my hair styling well down. I want a super sexy glam wave, like this:
As I said, it’s fine, and when I’ve tried styling it like this for my HS prom yeeearrrrss ago it did not go well. I went to a salon and had it professionally done, but it fell out in literally a half hour. I think inexperience of the stylist was partially to blame, but my hair is very finicky. Maybe a “wet-set” would help hold the style? And then if I sweep it up briefly for the ceremony, would it ruin the style? Here’s what I’m thinking for the up look with veil:
So I suppose my questions are twofold:
1. Can I do two styles?
2. Has anyone had success with the sculpted wave hairstyle?

Has no one tried this hair?? I’ve made multiple attempts over the years and it never works. Maybe you have you have professional styling genius and $$$$$.

I didn’t do an updo (hair not long enough) but I did have sculpted waves. My hair doesn’t hold style well at all, but let me tell you – my hair and makeup lady used this silk hairspray and those waves even survived the night. (She sprayed first, curled, then sprayed to set it.) I had waves the next day, still.
If your hair is like mine and doesn’t hold style, you might have more difficulty doing two styles – you’d have to break up the hairspray, comb or style out any kinks from the updo, and then re-set it in waves, which depending on your length, could take a loonnnggg time. (My hair took probably 40 minutes to do – and I don’t have a lot of it.)
I fear what you’ll run into is running out of time between the ceremony and reception – if your hair is half-done you’d have to make the choice between missing out on your own reception or pictures or food and having your hair perfect. I say go with the one style you love, and leave it at that. Less stress on your wedding day, less time worrying about changing your hair, and more enjoyment of your day and your new husband.
