    Hello....

    I am looking for ideas. Like most other brides, I have decided to grow out my hair as much as possible for the wedding. It used to be pretty short (almost pixie-ish) and is now a really ugly, shaggy, bob but it is slowly getting there!!

    I have 6 months til the wedding and have started to try to find some pictures of a style I can aim for. I am not having a veil or tiara but just a flower. I am hoping to have a short bob, all one length by the wedding date... similar to Katie Holmes style (but not the same bangs)... any ideas of what I could do?? Or have any pictures you can share?

    Any ideas would be great... I don't want to wear it just down but not sure what other options I have.

    Thanks everyone!!

      Does your hair have any curl to it? I always think the natural sexy kind of messy look is sexy for beach weddings. :)

        you might get it long enough to do clip on extentions.......that's what i'm hoping to do. They look really natural and when it's up you can hide the shorter pieces

          I always thougt the 20's look was awesome. Let me find some photos if I can. I'm talking about like , a "finger wave" hair style, maybe not so tight and but like a sloppy version, KWIM let me search...

            if not, about how long is it, almost like mine? i am letting mine grow too. it was shorter though in the past and i was in two weddings. i had hair added. i can show u those pix too. basically they pulled it to the side alil and added hair and just pinned it, and spray the bottom peices and all.

                Hi Guys!!

                Thank you so much for all your input, you guys are awesome!!

                I am thinking that something with some curl in the style would be good because if it is humid, my hair goes a bit wavy so if you can't beat it, might as well join it, right?? Rather than trying to get it perfectly straight and then worry if it looks like SH*T all day, I can just start with it wavy.

                Right now my hair is in two layers... I have a shorter layer on top that comes down to about the top of my ears... then the longer layer underneath is at my jawline. I would like to get it all one length, rather than this overgrown mullet and yeah, I was thinking about extensions. I know there are many different kinds of extensions, which kind is the best?? Like if I was to get extensions right before I leave, what would hold up best for the 5 days there until the wedding?!

                Thanks!!

                  no prob!! extensions will def hold up, yes. i'd let it grow as long as possible and get extensions the week you leave. and like you said, get it wavey and there are so many options from there. it all depends on what you like. do u have any ideas in mind? i always go to google and search "celebrity hair" or "celeb updo's" yeah yeah i know im not a celeb but i always like the styles they have so it helps with thinking of ideas.

                    Thank god someone else is as bored as I am and is on here now... it is such a pleasure talking about 'girly' stuff!!!

                    I was thinking something along these lines:

                    http://fashiondevo.f....7/06/wavy1.jpg

                    But I would really like it back... off my neck... so if extensions could help me out, I would love something like this:

                    or

                    http://www.velvetgar....0071220-16.jpg

                    Haha... that last one was a joke. Just kidding.

                    This one is nice too... I don't think it would be too hard if I had extensions.

                    Anyway... let me know what you think!! Sorry if the links don't work... still a rookie at this :)
