I’m sorry that your hair wasn’t perfect. Every woman deserves to feel flawless on her wedding day. FWIW, to me it just looks like your hair is just left completely regular / not done up special. So, not exactly gorgeous and special, but certainly not ugly. Just…. normal.

I’m so sorry this happened! Like the above poster said every girl deserved to feel exceptionally beautiful on her wedding day. I can see what you mean with the hair but it certainly is not ugly or limp it just lackled more oomph and bounce. In the grand scheme of things you got to marry your best friend!

There’s nothing to gain from focusing on this. 

It doesn’t matter if your hair was ugly or insanely beautiful, the day is over, focus on your marriage and move on.

I’m sympathetic, OP, but this is how most brides who wear their hair down look by the end of the night! At least your hair is beautiful, great color, and no noticeable frizz. It may not have been special but you looked like yourself at your wedding – I bet your husband thought you looked pdefect! Don’t dwell on this. You can plan for special hair for another occasion – a friend’s wedding, family photo shoot etc.

I disagree with the PP in that I’m a little appalled at the unprofessionalism of the hairdresser and I think you have every right to be upset. If anyone should have cried from the stress it should have been the bride – to make you have to calm her down and compromise with her? You look lovely regardless but I will say that your hair could have been done better by far, not at you, but at your hairdresser.

Bianca Rodrigues :  Girl, your hair looked fine. Most importantly, you look happy. 

I hated my hair during my wedding too. Curls fell apart and my hair was frizzy and awful for pictures. Luckily my bridesmaids flew into action (I had no idea my hair looked so bad) and curled it a bit for the ceremony. But it was just terrible for pictures. 

Here’s the thing – there’s bound to be something you hated about your wedding, unfortunately.  I had a blast, regardless of the awful hair. I’m assuming you did too. Find a few pictures you do like, and stick with those! To be very honest though, I think your hair looks great. It’s shiny and wavy, and looks really thick. It helps show off your dress, and you and your husband! I hope you’re able to move past this and really enjoy being a newlywed! 🙂

Sorry you are upset, it is disappointing when things like that happens. 

HOWEVER –  and I am not trying to feel you feel better by saying this – I think your hair looked beautiful in the photos. It’s so long and thick and pretty.

I can totally relate!  There was a hurricane on my wedding day.  Sideways rain, wind, 100% humidity and curls do not mix.  My makeup was a mess too.  I even tried going from salon to venue in a showercap to protect the style!  I looked crazy.

You’re lucky enough to have gorgeous natural hair. It looks healthy and beautiful. Don’t stress about it 🙂

My curls when I had just finished getting ready:

My curls later that afternoon after being outside taking photos in the breeze and it was slightly damp so my hair started to frizz and the curls were dropping out:

All I could notice when I first saw that photo was the giant mane of frizz around my head, but now its one of my favourite photos because the over all lok of everything is perfect and in reality no one else notices the frizz.

I don’t think any one else will notice that your curls didnt last, you still looked fabulous! The fact you have lovely glossy dark long hair makes you look so glamourous!

I kind of know how you feel. My husband and I just eloped at a courthouse, and while I felt beautiful in my dress I hated my hair. I’mnot good at curling it and my sister was suppose to curl it but ended up not doing it because she didn’t feel comfortable supporting our wedding.


But your hair looked good! I do admit it’s missing the Bridal wow factor, but it’s not ugly! Congrats on marrying your best friend <3
