Hair & Makeup Trial With Pics

Recommended Posts

Thank you all so much! I am very excited that I got to do a trial while I was down there. It was very last minute for the hair as my cousin is supposed to do it for the wedding but she is having a baby this week and our first trial didn't go so well. I was getting my makeup done and they offered to do a hair trial as well (last minute on 12/23...nice!).

 

You are right, I didn't think about it lasting all day. It is dark for me as I don't wear much normally (usually warmer tones) and they did say since they would be doing my makeup around 1:30 (is this normal for a 5pm wedding?) before my hair they would do it a bit darker so it would last. SO I freaked out when mom and FI said it was too dark. I will show them the pics adn see what they think.

 

Thank you all for the kind comments, I feel much better now! Now I just need to tell my cousin she doesn't have to do my hair....

Ok... please tell me you paid attention, lol. I see they are curling your hair with a flat iron and I know you can do that by grabbing at the top and turning over and pulling down but I have never seen such perfect curls done this way. Do you remmy how they did it?

Funny you mention this as I am going to try to find one of the things she used. I didn't see who made it but it looked like a typical narrow flat iron, but it had little groves on the end and she would wrap it (one piece at a time) with one turn around the iron and then pull down. She explained it to me (in spanish so loose translation here) that it straightens and then curls at the same time. this was good for someone like me that has such naturrally curly hair (which people usually use rollers on my natural curl to get it to hold because if we blow it out, then flatten it to remove frizzies, it will never hold).

She told me that on the wedding day, she will wash/blow it out the night before to be worn strait and then use this iron thingy on it the day of and it will look better.

FYI...my I traveled with strait hair on Sat. (blown out friday night) and she did my hair on monday so it was a MESS to start. I was surprised she could get it to do anything. I have tried to google flat curling iron and have not found it yet. I am goign to go to a salon and ask. looked like a Chi iron as it was black with gold plates. about 1" wide.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
