The lovely KC (from one of my fav blogs, Thrifty Solutions For An Urban Gal) is heading to a wedding and needs some hairstyle advice. Check out these looks and vote for your favorite! She writes:
I have a wedding to go to this weekend and need some ideas of what to do with my hair! It’s in the midwest and I don’t want to check a bag so I can’t bring a lot of hair product with me. Any suggestions of a look? (I’m wearing a super short dress with a high neckline with tights and heels).
Thanks for writing in, KC! Here are my thoughts… the fact that you’re wearing a dress with a high neckline means that if you wear your hair down, you risk visually shortening your neck. To keep yourself looking long and lean, I’d definitely stick with an updo, and I’ve found a few great options for you.
The big trick is to stay away from anything too bridal or bridesmaid-y, so a more casual version (read: no curly tendrils!) is going to be most appropriate. Check out these looks:
LOOK #1: Kristen Bell keeps it fun and flirty with twists and braids.
LOOK #2: Update a classic french twist by teasing your hair in front and leaving it a little undone.
LOOK #3: A low, knotted side bun is laid back but beautiful. (And could easily be accessorized with a clip or flower.)
LOOK #4: Or— if you’re feeling fashion-forward— go for a super-high bun, a la Cameron Diaz.
The great news is that for all of these looks you only need a comb, a few bobby pins, a hair tie, and some travel-sized hair spray!
Which updo should she choose?
Which of these hairstyles should KC wear to her weekend wedding? Which of them would you most like to wear? Do you agree that high necklines look nice with updos, or would you wear your hair down? Let’s chat wedding hair in the comments!
