@Eckle:  I think they look nice. I wonder if a stylist can lower the twists around your face a little easier than you (due to the arm reach) so that they fall and frame your face better. They do look a little like braids.

So the salon states it opens to the public at 8AM. Would it open to you at 7AM? I know many salons do this so perhaps you could inquire.

Do you feel comfortable with styling your own hair on the wedding day? Personally I would not want the stress and pressure, and professionals usually do a better job of getting things to look right and stay in place. If it was me, I would hire a hairstylist to come to the location you are getting ready in.

If you are going to do it yourself, I have a couple of suggestions. I would do a side part, and try to make the twists a bit looser to look more soft and romantic like the inspiration. I don’t think you need to flatiron your hair first, it’s probably better if your hair has a bit of texture. I also noticed you don’t seem to have much of a bun/knot portion at the bottom, the twists just kind of disappear at the end. Do you have short hair or are the ends just tucked underneath where you can’t see them? If they are tucked under I would try to bring them out more and create a larger, curly bun at the base of your head.

@Eckle:  Ooooh! I got it. Yes, that’s be really tight. Can someone come to you? I think you did a GREAT job. I’m just wondering if you’d like the service, if someone could drop by your place at 6:30am instead of you travelling.

Wow, looks amazing! I would never be able to do that. Looks really really nice. I would say you could maybe tease the top a bit before doing the twists to add a little more volume, but even without it is still really nice.

@Eckle:  Very nice! One thing I would suggest is to part your hair further to the side. It’s a little hard to see the “bun” part but I love the twists:)

@MeiFrancis:  

@Eckle:  I agree with the side part idea. For flyaways, you could try coconut oil? get a barely there amount on your fingertips and rub them together and then try smoothing with a very light touch?

ps…suggestions for more volume in the bun:
1. keep doing each side separately all the way to the end and then sorta pull them as loose as you can and pin them to each side. a-like so.

2. get a sock bun/donut mold and smoosh it so it’s a long double tube. then wrap your hair around that. a-like so.
