hair hmmm...

boy, it feels good to do a post about something that hasn't been a struggle or cost us an arm and a leg. I'm starting to think about my hair.

I always thought i would wear my hair down in natural looking waves with some sort of flower or hippie headband accessory to denote myself as the bride.

but. today i saw a photo from when i bought my dress taken of the back with my hair up and i though - geez - do i want to cover that up? my gown is strapless and an exposed back is pretty beautiful as far as i'm concerned. (my mother always told me to accentuate your assets and hide your flaws so the back and shoulders can take over for my hips any day!)

anyway. i started to rethink, could i do some sort of loose messy looking updo instead of loose locks?












and then i saw this bride on once wed today and thought that it was meant to be. what a good combo of showing off the length and sweeping the hair off the back at the same time with this messy side braid of sorts (more photos here.)
what do you girls think? have you decided how you're doing your do yet?

  1. I know this is probably not helpful - but I love them all! That last one is really pretty. Braids are hot!

  2. I like both the hair down/natural look and the up-do but if you want to highlight a certain part of your dress then I say go for it up. I love that photo of the bride in the field and the one of Taylor Swift. I don't know if you planned on doing one, but a hair trial run would always be a good way to decide for sure.
    I've always know I'm a half-up/half-down kind of girl. It'll be warm for our wedding, so I don't want to be too warm with all my hair down, but I love the look, so I figure it's a decent balance.

  3. My personal favorite is the Taylor Swift hair do, but I'm totally biased as I'm going for something like that. I agree that you should show off your back and the last pic seems to have all the elements you are going for.

  4. i love the combining of loose and natural (very you) with a slightly fancied up do about it (also you! very fancy). i love it kristy! you're gonna look so gorgeous now matter what - even if you shaved your head!

    but i like that idea. are you gonna do it yourself? i wish i could volunteer myself to do it for you. but... i suck. xx

  5. I LOVE the messy up-do. I'm wearing my hair down because Ryan requested it, but if I wasn't I'd do the Taylor Swift do. Really though my friend, whatever you decide you will rock like it's never been rocked before, so don't stress!

  7. I am still at a loss, but I am leaning more toward down and curly. I love that once wed photo it is so pretty.

  8. I think they're all beautiful but the side swept look is super pretty and kind of the best of both worlds. :)

  9. perhaps i can have a transition - down for the ceremony and up or to the side for the reception? i'm the type that always ends in a ponytail by the end of the night - would love it to be intentional! thanks for the feedback ladies!
