Hair advice needed please!

Hi all

I'm really stuck about how to wear my hair for my wedding in July and would love your advice please! I had my trial a couple of weeks ago and always thought my dress (and I) would suit my hair up. However, after it was put up at my trial I didn't feel like it was special enough. 

What do people think about having my hair up in a high bun or a half up do with my dress?

Hair half up idea

    I know what you mean, I initially decided on a simple sock bun, but after trying it a couple of times after my trial it doesn't feel special enough and it absolutely kills my neck with the weight of my hair after a couple of hours! So I've got to go back and see if they'll change it to a half up, big hair do! 

    With your dress I think the 2nd photo idea would be lovely, its simple and pretty but it looks gorgeous and will show off your neck and shoulders, if you know what I mean? Xx

  • Hi Mrs2bWP thanks for your reply image Do you mean the up do = second photo?

    I think I am swaying more to keeping it up as wearing it half down would hide some of the straps xx

    I think with how floaty your dress is the half up style would look lovely but if you are set on having a full updo I would stick to something quite loose rather than formal structured. I think something like the below would look lovely:




  • Thanks for your help Michelle! You've made it more difficult nowimage I understand what you mean though, maybe a more "romantic" updo would look better x
