For the first time in my life, I’m growing my hair.
Obviously it’s grown all by itself many a time but this is the first time I’m not having it chopped on a whim. In other words, I have succumbed to the bride classic of wanting long tresses for the big day. (I’m currently referring to it as my mane if that makes it a little less clichéd?) But what to do with it once it’s grown?
Half of me wants to wear it down and to the side.
The other half has a soft spot for a whimsical up-do.
Something like this perhaps (via here)? I just love the relaxed look of it but I’m guessing a lot of effort probably goes into making it look like that!
Or a little like this… I just adore this button detail up-do on this bride… the buttons were hand-sewn into her hair! (As many of you will guess, it was the yellow buttons in this shot that made me squeal with delight when I first saw it!)
And how stunning is this step-by-step side chignon? (Admittedly the girl model is rather gorgeous too.) I especially like how it looks in pic number 5 as it reminds me of one of all-time favourite hair dos…
What do you think? Too much or just the right side of fun?
It’s also dawned on that with our wedding theme and plans (still on the list of things Zoë can’t blog about!) whatever I have done to my hair will have to be something that will stay put all day but still look fun and relaxed. Hmmm… hair down and to the side then?
How did you all decide how to wear your hair? Or have you seen any lovely hair dos I can ‘borrow’ for the day?
(And man, I’ve got an awful lot of hair-growing to do if I’m going to achieve any of these!)
