I went to my hairdresser for the usual chop of my mop last week and she said to me, "I've got a great idea for your wedding hair! Why don't you put it up in a messy bun and put a tiara on top?"
Messy bun? An updo? Wha? I am not really an updo kind of person. Not that I don't like them--I really wish I had the kind of hair that I could sweep into a casual chignon. But my hair doesn't really grow that way. At the moment I have kind of a Chrissie Hynde thing going on:
Chrissie is one of the coolest women of all time and the hairstyle almost always looks awesome. So I am more than happy to have her as my style icon. Stop Your Sobbing!
However, the style doesn't really lend itself to updos. It would need a lot of bobby pins and hairspray to make that happen. But my stylist, who is responsible for my Chrissie-alike hairdo, says that it'll look great. And it might, but it's not really how I ordinarily wear my hair.
That said, though, who doesn't love playing with their hair on special occasions? This is my one chance in my life to wear an updo and a tiara. I'm sure this is not how this woman wears her hair ordinarily, but it looks gorgeous.
Should wedding hair look like your normal hairstyle? Or should you experiment with something fun and different for the occasion?
