Just over 3 months to go!!! And everything is starting to come together. I don’t have a full length picture of me in my dress, so I’ll show you the original on the model followed by my modifications:
Now, I’m really struggling to decide on a hairstyle! I tend to wear my hair down most days, however due to the detail at the top of the dress I feel like I should wear my hair off my shoulders. Here’s a photo of how it looks normally so you can see the length and texture:
Originally I was looking at loose updos like these (the first 2 pics are me at my graduation ball, I really liked the way the stylist did my hair then):
Buuuuuuut…now I’m thinking more about sort of half-up/pulled back but still down styles, like these:
I feel these might be more ‘me’, but do you think they’re too loose/boho to go with the style of my dress? Help!
the first 2 pictures are beautiful and the last style is gorgeous too. The 3rd hair style is very unstructured and depending on how long your day will be/how the weather in May is where you are, that particular style may go flat/ lose any hold within a few hours.
the first 2 Styles are good for long, all day and night weddings and will/should hold up beautifully. The Last fishtail type hairstyle is beautiful too and more casual, relaxed style. Good for beach/low maintenance easy going wedding.
With that braid (4th style) fullness is needed and your stylist would have to tease up and feather the hair in the braid which would cause your hair to “shrink up”, you would lose length/would be a shorter braid.
1 or 2 hair trials would help you make your choice.
lifeisbeeutiful: All good points- I guess part of my concern about the last 2 is whether they will hold up all night. I’m from the UK so we tend to have long weddings! Our ceremony is 2pm followed by photos and dinner/speeches, dancing will start at 8pm and we won’t leave until about midnight so the hair needs to be secure!
Here’s the video tutorial of the last style, though it has that loose look to it, the way it’s constructed should hopefully help with staying power? And thankfully I do have thick hair to begin with, so most of it will probably be secured in the braid:
