What do you get when take this:
Answer: You get this!
I had my hair trial this past weekend and I am so happy with how it turned out. Here are the pictures!
I love love love love LOVE it. And I love love love love LOVE the way I feel about myself when I have my hair like this. Who knew such a simple thing could be such a self-esteem booster? I felt so beautiful all day with my hair done up!
We are going to make a few small changes on the big day, though. For starters, we are going to have the bun up a little higher, so the veil will sit higher on my head. We are also going to tease a bit more for a little more volume to my hair at the crown. And lastly, the rolls are going to be a bit more defined and cleaner. I also think we’re going to add some rhinestones. I keep searching for a perfect hairpiece, but to no avail. Some tiny rhinestones might be the way I go!
Also this weekend, I found the PERFECT red lipstick for the big day. I always have trouble shopping for reds—it seems I can never pick the right one. With the motto “Always Be Prepared,” I read up on how to pick the perfect red, and gleaned one major tip: you’ll just KNOW when it’s the right color. I held each color up to the inside of my wrist, as well as to the tip of my index finger (did you know that that area most closely matches the color of your lips? True story!). And the articles I read were right, you DO just know when it’s the right color. I ended up with this one:
L’Oreal Colour-Riche in Drumbeat Red. I decided against a long-wear lipstick or stain because, to be perfectly honest, I hate them. I don’t care if I have to reapply, because this lipstick is the perfect color and texture for me!
So, all in all, a good weekend in the wedding hair and makeup department!
Did you do a hair trial? Got any ideas for me about hairpieces?
