weave expert you service!!!!!

first of all that style is beautiful!!! secondly, dependig on how good your stylist is at blending you could get away with just one bundle of remy. i also would suggest getting 16in or 18 inches. but they thing to remember is that the longer the weave is…the thinner it will be.

also looking at the picture, i dont think your going to need a full weave…you can get a half sew in and still look amazing. remy is good for getting your hair wet because it gets wavy instead of tangling up.

your going to look amazing on your day!

You will look beautiful! I also second the remy it will be fine! Its really really nice hair. As for the whole head i would suggest getting it done. When your gone you wont have to worry about your hair but the “other” hair” Indian just waves up really nicely! You will be fine hunni! KNOCK EM DEAD! Laughing

I prefer full head weaves because there is less maintenance involved.  Just wash it, deep condition it, blow it out and then wrap it up.  It’s that easy. 

Also, weave doesn’t fall as quick as real hair.  Which I think is something to consider for both your wedding and Fiji.

One final thing, if you do decide to get a weave, be sure to get it done atleast 1 week before your wedding.  That way it will have some time to loosen up.

Oh and Remy is gorgeous.. you’ll love it.

Good luck!

Hey! That is the same style I was eyeing! lol

If I had to money budgeted for that I would get the full head, but my stylist suggested just getting a “fall” sewn in and she would style it for way less than the $245 she quoted me for a full head weave/style.

You will look beautiful…

I had a weave several years ago after a botched hair cut (it was awful!). While the hair looked amazing and did what I wanted…ie never a bad hair day…it was so incredibly painful. After first having it put in I couldn’t sleep for several days and the braids caused an irritation on my scalp, oh the itching!

That being said the second time around when it was tightened my stylist figured out a few things and it wasn’t AS bad and got easier from there. It was uncomfortable but not unbearable.

I am not sure what your pain level tolerance is but I would highly recommend a test run BEFORE your wedding just to be on the safe side.

I think your wedding day should be the most beautiful you. If you never worn a weave before then I say go for it. Nothing to crazy or over the top but something to enhance your beauty. Weave is used for both body and length. Good luck.
