I went to to get my hair put in an updo as a practice run for the wedding. It wasn’t technically a hair trial because apparently then they spend more time trying out different options and you don’t actually leave with a fully functioning updo. But I thought I might as well use the opportunity to get my hair done for a night out while I was there. The hair dresser was shocked and horrified that I was willing to have the same hair at my wedding that *I had had before*. Shocking! To be fair, she had never met me before and I didn’t really explain that I am not having a traditional wedding-dress-that-costs-a-grand type wedding, and once I showed her my actual dress and told her about my budgetty(ish) plans, she got it.
She did a great job, didn’t she? I totally love it I have such fine hair and not that much of it, but she really managed to create some volume! And it lasted all night when I went out! I think I will go with something like this but I also got some hair extensions that she can work in.
But in the mean time, here’s some fancy vintage updo styles for your delectation. People must have spent forever sitting around having these done!
