Quick-N-Clean, really. I skipped that "day old hair is best for up-dos" step. My hair is on the oily side, so if I can wash it on the morning of my wedding I will be sooooo much happier by the end of the night.
On to the good stuff: I'm not going to share my hair-spiraiton with you because I found ALL of it on Weddingbee. I will however, refer you to an awesome thread saved in my favorites from the boards. Other brides did all the hard work and shared their inspiration pics and their own wedding 'dos so the rest of us could steal their ideas ;)
Inspire and be inspired, ladies!
Marc's aunt is a hair stylist, and lucky for me, she has agreed to coiffe my bridal 'do. Her specialty is cut and color rather than up-dos, so we're working in a few trials before the big day. I have full faith in her, and I think we're on to something already:
Taking out the hot rollers- my mother is very thorough in her photographic storytelling. I fast forwarded for y'all.
Andi's hands moving so fast you can't even see them!!
My mom pulled this photojournalistic shot out of her back pocket. Why'd we hire a photographer for the wedding day?
Sorry for this fuzzy pic. They left me alone with a DSLR, a mirror, and a braid across my head. What choice did I have?
And a view from the back.
We are definitely on the right track. We need to secure the bun better. I'm going to try adding extensions for more volume and drama. And we might nix the braid because I like hair in my face (not those 2 pieces hanging down- I usually have long bangs). A hairband should sub-in for a braid quite nicely... we shall see at trial number 2.
How did you decide on your bridal hair style?
