I wore my hair in an updo because 1) I never do anything other than wear my hair down or in a ponytail, so it made it feel extra special; 2) I wanted the guaranteed last-all-day style that an updo offers! I absolutely LOVED how my hair turned out, a mix between polished and textured, and it looked amazing all night long! Seriously, I stood in front of the mirror when we got back to the hotel room at the end of the night and thought “I could go get married again looking just like this…” It was such a shame taking the updo out to sleep!

waitingtobeemrsS:  OMG the 3rd picture you posted is EXACTLY what I have in my head but couldn’t find a photo of! I just had my hair trial and ended up disappointed because I couldn’t articulate exactly what I wanted. Now I can show my stylist this photo! Thank you!!

vintagekitten:  I went to my normal hair salon, but asked them which hair stylist does wedding hair. The girl who did my hair is about 28, maybe? She said she’s constantly following wedding blogs to see what’s trendy, she looks up youtube vidoes on how to do different hair, she practices at home on her mannequin head, and of course, she’s got lots of practice doing hair. I did a hair trial first and it wasn’t what I wanted: too smooth, too much poof up top, the bun was too low… we talked about it, she went and practiced at home, and on the wedding day she did this! I was very happy, didn’t expect it to end up so good after the trial was just okay. I wish I could offer more advice, but I was struggling with the same thing: it’s HARD finding someone to do your hair online! Maybe just call a few places and talk to them, to see how they prep? Are they staying on top of current trends, or are they going to do 2000s prom hairstyles? Can they do a range of hairstyles, or are all their pictures of the exact same style Good luck!!

I like the formality of hair up, and also don’t want my hair looking messy by the end! From my hair trial:

jannem:  Thank you, on both counts! I emailed my hairstylist a few days after the wedding to thank her again, she did such a great job. Glad it could be inspiration for someone!!
