THIS POST IS NOT FOR YOUR EYES SINCE YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED ABOUT EVERYTHING ON THE DAY OF OUR WEDDING =] AND YOU WILL CATCH GLIMPSES OF MY DRESS IF YOU READ FURTHER...YOU'RE WARNED!
Those of you following me on Twitter may have already seen this, but I had my first hair trial the other week. I settled on who is doing my hair for the day of the wedding, and we got together to practice since I really had no clue what I wanted to do.
A close family friend will be coming over to my parents' house on the morning of the wedding to do my hair, along with my mom and Mr. T's mom. The girls have all decided to do their own hair/help each other with their hair.
I've known Theresa for ages, she actually used to babysit me when I was younger. I ran into her one night downtown and we talked and it was decided! She's actually going to do my hair for free as part of my wedding gift, and wouldn't take anything for my hair trial either when I went over to her house.
I brought along some of the hair inspiration pictures I've been gathering. I had narrowed it down to two styles. One was a low updo, and the other was a half-up updo.
I get to be a two-hairstyle bride! How exciting?! This way I can leave my hair down for the ceremony and wear my veil, and then it will be up off my shoulders for the rest of the night and I won't be too hot and worrying about the curls falling out.
Now for the pictures...
I don't remember if I told you all or not, but I got a perm about a month ago because I was sick of my half curly hair and wanted a change. It looks absolutely adorable now and I don't have to put any time into it, but Theresa said they must have left the solution in for too long because my hair is beyond unhealthy now! So she sent me home with some good shampoo and conditioner and orders to get my hair trimmed and a good deep conditioner at a salon. This way my hair will hold a curl better and look healthier and shinier on the day of the wedding. So now I've got some work to do between now and then.
But I'm glad I went ahead and did this trial, because now I know for sure what I want. All I have to figure out now is what I'm planning on doing with my makeup. I'm really leaning towards having it done at a salon, because I really want eyelashes applied for the day and I'm horrible at doing them myself. So we'll see what I decide on that.
I would definitely recommend a hair trial though if you're stuck between a couple different ideas and you can afford to do it. It will also give you a feel for how it will hold up throughout the day.
Have any of you done a hair trial before your wedding day?? What are your thoughts on it?
