good point! i kind of used my engagement pics as a hair trial, at least for the curling it part. i decided i am a "hair goes flat" girl. so needless to say, unless i invest in some aqua net and a super duper hot curling iron, that idea is out the window!

    Me too Abbie. Totally weird because my hair is naturally curly, but when you try to make it softer by using a curling iron, it won't hold. I had my hair curled, then pinned up. Worked out well- I think. Still waiting on those darn pics! lol

      Thanks for all the input! I have made a hair appointment this week and will drop by the makeup counter sometime next week. Do you think I can get them to put fake lashes on me if I bring them?

        I am definitely getting my hair done at home first. My hairdresser (the same one for about 15 years) does the best updo's and knows me. We already planned to heve the trial and then we are going to take pics in steps so that I can have the same style done. Even the best hairdresser will have a stuff time getting a style that is perfect for you if they don't know what you like.

          I second everyone's recommendation to do a trial hair run. I went about a month ago, and it cost around $40. It was $40 well spend IMHO. It felt great knowing that the wedding hairstyle I wanted not only looks good, but is relatively easy to do! Now I just have to remember to print the pics of my camera and I'm good to go! I'm not doing a make-up trial run. I'm having my make-up done at the spa, but plan on keeping it really simple since I don't wear a lot of make up in real life.

            I'm doing trials at home. I already had my makeup trial and took some pics so I can recreate the look. I am also doing a hair trial in case what is done in PR isn't up to par, then I can recreate, hopefully, what my usual stylist did. Sorry for the bad sentence!
