Let's Talk About Hair, Baby

Typically, I wear my hair in two down styles: straight and curly. I don't think it suits me to wear it up, but occasionally when I'm running late or my hair is not cooperating, I'll pull it up in a ponytail.

I wear my hair long and straight in the cooler months.

Long oval face, no good for up-dos.

I switch up my 'do in the summer for a curly weave. Yup, I wear weaves.

So, I always assumed I would wear my hair down for my wedding as well. I may have even practiced with a few accessories.

But, a wedding is supposed to be the one day where you can fancy it up. A little voice in my head (hello mom) keeps saying "try something different". Then I remembered that I rocked a half-up, half-down 'do for prom that I loved. Wanna see Miss Warbler back in high school? Let's do the time warp!

 Forget about the hair, check out my guns!

To be fair, that was more of a one-fourth up, three-fourths down 'do. But those photos inspired me to seek out similar hairstyles.

Hmm, this kind of reminds me of a beehive.

Please ignore her boobs.

Carrie Underwood's photo is definitely making its way on my inspiration board. I love how her hair cascades across her forehead and the curls. But, I still have my safe options. I might have my hairstylist try a couple half-up, half-down styles so I can have a clear image. What do you think? Should I fancy it up or stay safe?


  1. Girl, I think you could totally pull off the half-up do and look fabulous! I really love Carrie Underwood's hair in that pic. Plus, I love you with curly hair, so I think it could look great on you! Just give it a shot at your hair trial, and if you don't like it, you can always just wear it down :)


  2. I say go fancy! Love that Carrie 'do :)
