Wedding Hair Help!

Recommended Posts

I recently chopped off like, 8 or so inches of my hair because it was SO DAMAGED from bleaching and dyeing and just me not taking care of it very well. So now I've got this (pretty adorable) self inflicted bob cut. Not a problem, right? Wrong! I'm getting married in 15 months and the theme? Lord of the Rings. It's high fantasy, so my goal is to make it as nature-y, flowy, and elf-y as I can (love the elves). So obviously I was trying to go for looooong flowy hair that's pretty reminiscent of the elves and their elegant, natural, wavy style.

So knowing that, I'm aware I can't possibly get my hair like halfway down my back in less than 15 months (sadly), but I'm still rooting for that style for my wedding hair.

What I'm basically asking is what would be the best option for getting that look for my wedding hair, with having to wear a wig as more of a last resort option. I'm not too fond of wearing wigs, as they never really stay on my head without itching like crazy and looking unnatural. (Plus it's an outdoor wedding in October in the southern USA so that wind and possible heat with a wig will just...not work out too well for me)

Any help and input is very appreciated!!! <3

Maybe you could do hair extensions? Idk, I've never tried them but thought about it. It might work! Also congratulations on getting married!

I agree, get hair extensions.

 

During your hair and make-up consultation, this would be a great time to try out different styles. As hair extension kits come with several pieces with different lengths, as this adds layers,dimension and volume to your existing hair length and style.

 

They are essentially two types:

 

1) Clip in. (Temporary) Which is a lot easier for you to take them in and out, yet they are very secure. You or a stylist just clip the sections in! 

 

2) Glued in. (Semi-permanent) This type / method is more expensive as a stylist has to glue the extensions to a section of your roots. They will last longer, but will lengthen out as the section of hair it is glued to, grows out.

 

The beauty with hair extensions, is that all the sections will blend in seamlessly with your natural hair so that all of your hair will look natural, plus you can style your hair any style you want.

 

Make sure you get real human hair extensions, as they can handle the heat of hot tools. Synthetic hair will melt which means you are very limited in what kind of style you want to put to it.

 

Good luck and have fun with it! Cheers!

The wedding day is the most precious day of every woman’s life and they definitely want to look their best. The right bridal accessories should show off your beautiful dress and make you feel fantastic, all day long. Therefore, veils are really a great idea.

    • Whether you’re a college girl who will be waking up for an 8am class and going out at night, or a super mom who will be juggling work, taking her kids to school, making dinner, and soccer games, makeup that lasts all day is extremely beneficial! Who wants to worry about reapplying five times a day? If you follow these tips, you can put on your makeup in the morning and not have to worry about those annoying touch ups! Start With a Clean Face Applying makeup to a fresh face is the best way to make it last. Make sure you remove your makeup at night and then wash your face in the morning before putting on your makeup. It’s also a great idea to use a good moisturizer, such as our Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Creme. It helps improve skin’s complexion, elasticity, and texture, and also smooths wrinkles. Use a Primer – On Your Face and Your Lids Makeup primer makes the perfect base because it helps minimize pores, erase imperfections, and makes your makeup look better and last longer. Make sure aside from using a basic primer that you use an eye primer as well. It’s a must if you are wearing eyeshadow or liner so that it looks as clean and crisp at night as it did when you first put it on! Choose Oil-Free, Long Lasting Products The products you choose make a huge difference. Products that aren’t oil-free may not last as long because the oils will eventually make them fade. Go ahead and spend that extra $2 for the foundation that says “long lasting.” It’s worth it! Don’t Forget Pressed Powder and Setting Spray  Once your look is complete, finish your look with a pressed finishing powder and setting spray! These products are designed to keep your makeup in place and also help remove any excess oil. Keep Your Hands Away From the Finished Product Try not to touch your face throughout the day! Not only can touching your face lead to breakouts, but the oils on your skin will remove your makeup.

    • Anti Aging Creams are used to provide you with the youthful appearance you always want. To look Vibrant, you need to choose the best anti aging / anti wrinkles cream.  Which creams are considered as the best? The Creams with the right ingredients which includes many Vitamins and Minerals as well as Matrixyl and Hyaluronic acid. When to start using Anti Aging Creams? Dermatologists say that you should actually start using anti-aging products in your 20s.  The sooner you start using anti aging products, the less likely you are to develop wrinkles and lines. Also, it helps in reducing the dark spots.  One should choose anti aging products according to the skin type so that there is no chance of the products to react on your skin.  It's better to start anti aging products at an early age rather than using them in your 30s. Choosing the right products is the key to youthful appearance.  If you don't know what products you should go with, here is a list of the best anti aging creams in India with price list where you can find about the best anti aging products.  I am using Pond's Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector, which is working best for me.  I wish you all a healthy and happy skin. Don't forget to choose the products according to your skin type :)
