Choosing a HAIRSTYLE!!
Posted 10 July 2009 - 04:14 AM
I also love flowers in the hair, more of a sideswept updo, but have no clue if the salon at the resort where I'm going (secrets maroma beach) will be able to deliver what I want! Everyone on this forum who's gotten hitched had great hair! DIY, or did you bring someone down? Is it really possible to get what you want without ever consulting the person who will do your hair!?! The thought fills me with anxiety! I don't want a birdnest for a head!
For other brides to be, I've gone through every mag possible, but found really great hairstyles here! Also, they have some really cute flower pins!!
Hair Comes the Bride - Brides
What's the deal, who's wearing what, and are you supposed to have a hair trial if you're going to have it done by someone else?

So I just explained all that to try and calm your nerves a little bit aobut not having a hair trial. The resort offered one but I wanted to enjoy my time with my guests and limit wedding stuff to a minimum...but that was my choice. If you have a vision of what you want it to look like just make sure you bring pics for your stylist to give her an idea of what you're thinking of. Talk it out and everything should be great!
Oh - take into consideration the wind too! I wanted a 1/2 up 1/2 down do and am so happy I didn't do it in the end cause it would've been a mess with all the wind on the beach! My MOH decided to wear her hair down and regreted it in the end cause she's fixing her hair in all the pics!
Good luck! It'll all come together anyway so relax and don't worry about it! You can only do so much from this far away so just enjoy it!!

Maybe you could have a trial the day you get to the resort so you can make sure your hair will be what you want?
I also agree with montegobay...take into consideration the wind. Even though I'd like my hair 1/2 up, 1/2 down, I'm going to go with it all up so it's not a mess in the pictures.

I honestly thought about flying the hair and makeup artist down the same way I'm flying my photographer in. Then I found a person who is making me custom clip in hair extensions. For way cheaper than it would be to fly someone down. I pick them up on Monday!!
Right before the wedding she is going to style them and then ship them so that they don't wrinkle (or whatever it is hair would do during shipping) and then I will just clip them in for pre styled hair! There is enough hair so that it will completely cover most of my natural unstyled hair and I'll just have to do a simple half up do. It's super easy, she's been practicing with me!

I was going to have a trial at home but for $50-70 I figured it was too pricey.
I'll let you know how it goes with the resort stylist.

As for extensions, my best friend just got married and there was a hair cut incident during her original trial a couple of weeks before the wedding. She ended up getting the clip in hair extensions from a wig shop and they were super easy to put in. Here are a couple of pics. I don't think you can even tell she has them in... and they stayed perfectly curled all night long!
