Ladies who wore their hair 1/2 up 1/2 down or all the way down..help!

Recommended Posts

Oh! I forgot we had already seen your dress (my bad) when I saw it I remembered. I think with your dress the all the way up do would be best. But I agree the most important thing is that you feel beautiful and comfortable. You will look fabulous and happy and glowy either way.

I am struggling with the hair issue as well...although I have a bit of time to figure it out wink.gif I keep thinking that maybe I will do more of an up-do (I keep picturing a low side ponytail with loose curls) for the ceremony and pictures and then make sure that it is something I can let down for afterward.

 

Maybe you could have them to an up-do for your ceremony/pictures that can turn into a half up/half down for the celebration afterward - that way you have pics of you in both hairstyles and you don't have to worry about the wind. Just an idea wink.gif

I agree it would be more comforable to wear up. My prob again is I hate the way I look in pics with air up and if i am paying all this money for pics I want to like them. Try taking pics of yourself with a couple diff styles and see what you like. I style might look great on one person and not on another. face shape....

Hello fellow Edmontonian!!! I am having the same dilemma as you , I really want the half up half down hairstyle but eveyone is saying that the pics will be horrible if it windy or really humid that day... I really, really want my hair to be down but I guess I have to see how the weather plays out!

I am definitely doing my hair down, with just a couple front pieces pinned in the back with flowers. I don't really care if it's windy and my hair blows around a bit b/c it'll look even beachier! If I did an updo my hair would just get frizzy in the humidity and wind anyways, so I don't feel like having my hair down is going to make my photos any worse.

 

All that being said, Ill probably bring some pins and elastics as a backup, so that if it's ridiculously windy and I'm going crazy I can put my hair in a low pony-tail to one side (easy to take out after without doing damage, and it'd look good with curls).

I had my hair 1/2 up. It was windy for our wedding, but we just took our pictures in such a way that the wind blew the hair in the right direction. Do whatever you are comfortable with. Your photographer will work with you to make you look good.

I wanted a half up, half down 'do, but I'm not sure my hair will be long enough to pull it off... That being said, it may not even be long enough for an updo either :-(. It's barely touching my shoulders now, and the wedding is in 4 months. I have NO clue what to do with it! Oh, and to make matters worse, it's naturally wavy/curly so I'm worried that the heat and humidity will just make it go wild!

I once had VERY short hair (to my ears) and I was a BM for a friend's wedding. She wanted us all to wear our hair up. If figured I was good b/c with hair that short it's always up. :) But no, she wanted me to have an updo like the other girls, WTF? Anyway, I went to my hairdresser and begged for help, she did some magic and made my hair "appear" to be much longer and pulled into an updo on the crown of my head. It was amazing. You would be surprised what bobby pins and creativity can do for hair.

Or, you can always try extensions!
