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.

    • A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results.    Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it.  Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapors to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapors.  Take the steam vapors for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt.  Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads.  Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer.
    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.
