    I think the french twist is pretty and would look great with a veil attached

    I agree it makes you look older.  Dont cut your hair, if anything you could just leave it down in soft waves.

    I think the hair looks beautiful in the french twist.  However, if it’s not “you” then I’d continue looking for inspiration.  The one TA27 suggested is cute. I wouldn’t cut your hair unless you have had it short before and you are 100% sure you love it short in a bob.

    I LOVE the soft waves idea. I really don’t think cutting it is a great idea; once it is off it is gone and you won’t have time to grow it back. If you are looking for a longer hairdo, get clip-in extensions and expand the possibilities.

    This reminds me of how I felt.  To be honest I don’t like the french twist on you…and his comment reminds me of how my guy acted when I had my first trial…he actually didn’t even recognize me in the pic I sent him!  Have you ever thought about clip-in extensions?  I bought mine for $80 3 days before my wedding (I have thin shoulder length hair) and they were fabulous!

    i really like the soft waves idea, but you mentioned you have thin hair and it might not keep the waves very long. i know mine wouldn’t. i think you should actually look for a different stylist. they should definitely be able to do more than just a french twist with hair your length. try googling “short hair updos” to find some inspiration. curling your hair and then pinning each curl to the back of your head near the nape of your neck can work well for shorter hair, and will look younger than a french twist. it should have good staying power since each curl is actually pinned in place.

    And the clip-in extensions (the real human hair ones) can do anything your real hair can do..up-dos, curls, whatever..

    I don’t know where my post went, so I will try again. I don’t subscribe to the casual hairdos as not weddingish at all. I am wearing the Maggie Sottero Michelle and having my hair half up/half down with some bling in it. I think it is definitely what you make it and it sounds like he isn’t up to speed on the latest trends. This isn’t me in the picture, but what I aspire to have my hair look like with the added bling in my hair to make it more formal.

    Thanks SeattleMeg!  And the extenions are SO easy.  My hair lady sounds a little like the woman you saw…very set in her ways, older, etc.  When I called to tell her I was looking at extensions she tried talking me out of them because she’d never worked with them, EVER.  I bought them anyway, had the shadow color of my highlights colored to match, and she thru them in.  She couldn’t get over how easy it was, and how well it worked.  If she can be convinced, you’ll have no problems!  I can double check the brand I used when I get home if you like?  I’m excited for you, it felt so cool to have the long thick hair I’ve always dreamed about…and the best part, you can use them again and again!

    @seattlemeg: There is a place called Swink Style Bar and all they do are blowouts, styles, and updos, or down do’s Tongue out  As a PP mentioned don’t cute your hair. I also don’t know if you need extentions.  Do you want an updo?  There are very pretty soft delicate updo’s like this and this too if you like them Laughing
