Hair Muses

going back to hair...

I love Naomi Campbell's hair here!!

Love the messy side bun. It looks so effortlessly beautiful! I'll be needing my fringe to cover more of my forehead though.

here's a back-view of Naomi's bun.

As my hair is fine, I am also considering this dainty 'do...dainty in a cute kinda way!

This is also a runner up.

here's my attempt at the messy-ish, elegant side-bun. it took me like 5 minutes to do, and i was driving while i did it...eeeks...

this my 2nd attempt...i don't know if you can tell, but here, I was able to give my hair some volume. it shortly fell out during my fitting though.

a teeny tiny pic...get the picture though?

Results from my hair trial...

it looked great from the back. it was totally not what i had in mind though.

from the side. again...super ornate. a little messy, but hair girl assured me that more care would taken on day-of.

please excuse the face...i did go to the gym that day, and i just applied makeup b/c i looked dead before. anyways, you can't really see the side bun from the front, at all...and the lack of fringe covering my forehead makes me look like i have thinner hair (to me, at least). Not to mention, I look like an old lady...nothing wrong with that, cept, I'm not an old lady...

Girls, be stern with your hair person. Tell them exactly what you want and the way you want it. I emailed my hair girl shortly. I showed her pictures of what I had in mind. I showed her pictures of my attempt, which I loved! I told her that I wanted something more simple but elegant at the same time. I told her that I wanted my fringe to cover my forehead more, and that I don't want any gaps in there.

She took it all as constructive criticism (I hope). And we're going to try again 2 weeks.

In the meantime, my wonderful coordinator reminded me of my DIY projects, gave me a brief overview on our timeline, reviewed our contracts, set up a preliminary meeting to Saturday, in which we'll be meeting again together with our DJ and do our tasting at the venue this Saturday.

T minus less than month. Holy cow!

Your hair looks really good! I can't wait to see you for real! The side do looks perfect with the dress. Definitely, the side bun needs to show more in the front. Love you!
