Finding my Bridal Beauty Look, The Hair   1 comment

So I showed Mama Austen the makeup look I was liking from Anne’s red carpet looks and she didn’t like the lipstick. She prefer a berry or deep burgundy. I told her that we could make that change and then showed her the different hair placement I was considering for the up-do. For the style I wanted a bun with texture, like these.



The choices for placement are at the crown (as seen in the first picture), at the nape of the neck (as seen in the second picture), or more centered. Mama Austen and I both agreed that a more centered bun , like the one pictured below, would work best.


Mr. Darcy wanted the bun to be at the crown, but he also thinks it’s adorable if I wear my ponytail like this.


Although, while showing Mama Austen different pictures of hairstyles, she picked out this romantic up-do with a loose braid.


Now I am not sure which look I want.

How did you decide how to wear your hair for the big day? Who help decide?

A Pre-Wedding Chop   Leave a comment

On Wednesday, I enjoyed a lovely haircut at my favorite salon, Aveda Hi Lites. They always do a lovely job and I get a stress relieving chair massage as part of my service. Before I got my cut, Erin (stylist extraordinaire) asked me if I wanted to doing any face framing layers or bangs. Oooohhh, maybe. The whim struck me, maybe I want bangs. A lot of wedding hairstyles I have looked at and like have bangs. I did not get bangs this time around, but I am considering asking her for them next time around. Let’s look at some styles with bangs that have piqued my fancy:

I love the soft curls and the side-swept, semi-bang. (Yes I am coining my own hairstyle terms).

Again, this lovely bride-to-be has some face framing layers.


What about these side-swept face framing layers?

What about these bangs?

I don’t know about full-on bangs, but I am thinking maybe some face framing layers. Did you make a change to your typical hair cut to accommodate your wedding day hairstyle?
