Honestly, I haven’t thought much about my wedding day hairstyle yet. I have plenty of time to decide, so I am not too worried about it at all. That being said, when my friend and bridesmaid KDoc offered to come over and play with my hair the week before Christmas, I was stoked! Although she is not a professional stylist, she might as well be—she is so awesome at doing people’s hair and makeup and has done this type of thing for many brides she knows. It was quite fun:
We hadn’t talked much about style before this, as I just wanted to see what her ideas might be. I had mentioned the idea of a low side bun, so she rolled with it. This is what we came up with:
Overall, I really liked this style—it was a bit curlier than I had imagined, but I LOVED the way it looked in the back. I think it would work really well with my dress too! I think that I like styles that are a bit sleeker, though, and since we have a lot of time to play, KDoc said she would definitely roll with some other ideas as well! I think we might work on this style a little bit, and make it a little more this:
A little cleaner on the front and sides but still romantic-looking.
I also ADORE these styles (as seen on Mrs. Cowboy Boot from Weddingbee) and would like to try them as well:
Finally, I’d love to try something really dramatic too…something along the lines of this:
Ironically, I just got a set of Bump-Its (don’t hate, they’re fun!) for Christmas as a funny gift from my mom—I could totally use those here, I bet!
As you can see, I tend to go more for smooth, sleek styles—I think they make a good contrast with my dress…but I also love how the curly, romantic style we came up with could look with the dress too. Remember how dress shopping went though—I favored one thing but ended up with another, so maybe that’s my hair destiny as well. Now I ask you: what do you think? Sleek and smooth or curly and romantic?
How did you decide on a hair style for YOUR wedding?
