So you know I’m going to a fancy ball, and you know I found a fancy gown to wear. Since hair and jewelry came out in a dead heat when I asked what you wanted to hear about next, I’ve made the executive decision to discuss my hair-spiration this week.
What am I looking for? My gown is a deep royal blue. It’s all Hollywood glamorous, with ruching, a v-neck and deep v-back, and a pretty dramatic trumpet silhouette. Hips I have not, but you wouldn’t know it when I have this number on.
I’d like to continue the red carpet look with my hair. Hollywood glamour is the look I want to channel, but a little more undone, a little bit looser. For all my mane’s negative attributes (curly/frizzy/dry/what?) it certainly holds curl well. It’s also currently about six inches below my shoulders (wowza), so I have lots of flexibility in the style I choose.
And what, exactly, am I choosing between? Well let me show you!
I know I want an updo, I know I want side-swept bangs, and I know I want a little volume at the crown. With that in mind, here’s what I found.
Since I’m not having any sort of a trial before the big day, I’m also looking for a style that I know a stylist will be able to pull off, especially because I’ll be going to a stylist that is not familiar with my hair and all of its many eccentricities. I think these seem basic enough, but what about you? Overly complicated or completely doable? And which is your favorite look here?
