So I am kind of a floozy when it comes to styling my hair. IE – I SUCK AT IT! Plus, my locks are in a weird transition stage right now while I’m trying to grow it out for next July. I’m not really comfortable with it being down, BUT! I can whip out a mean french braid.
So, my question is: Do you think an unkept French Braid is too formal for an engagement shoot?
I went to my cousins wedding this past weekend and I received a lot of compliments on my hair, two people asked me where I had got it done (umm, it took all of 3 minutes in my bathroom!) and I felt really confident that it looked pretty – however I’m not sure how I feel about it for tomorrows shoot.
What do you all think? Here is what it looked like this past weekend (Sorry it’s sideways I just got a new iphone and mac and I have NO idea what I’m doing or how to rotate this!!)

That looks great I dont see why it would be to formal at all. You do a very good job.

oh my goodness, that’s not too formal at all! i think it is beautiful!
maybe keep a few loose hairs around your face, a few little flyaways. not only will that make it more “casual” but i think faces look better in photos with some hair around them!
go for the braid!

It looks great… but what does the front look like? I’m sure the majority of your e-photos aren’t gonna be the back of your head, right?

I think that looks perfect!!! Your hair is gorgeous btw. I agree with PP about maybe leaving a few loose strands around your face. Maybe curl the loose ones a little to be kind of wavy?

Thanks ladies!!! I agree with a few whisps of hair around my face, I really like the idea of it not being perfect, and I personally feel that my face is complimented more when my hair is out of the way. EEK! I am nervous!

Thank you!! It’s either that or a pony tail, I hate my hair in my face and I’m a lost cause when it comes to styling!!

I think you should wear your hair how you normally wear it for your engagement pictures. Just my opinion, it looks beautiful and I like the braid, I just think that I like when people look very natural in their engagement photos instead of dressed up.
