    Default How should i wear my hair for a funeral??

    Hi all. I am due to go to a funeral next week but I'm a bit stuck with what to do with my hair. I want to look my best and smart but i just can't make my mind up on how to wear my hair, if i wore it down it would just get untidy within 30 mins as we live in a seaside town.

    I was thinking of two rope braids starting at the crown and going into a rose bun with this hair comb

    what do you think? i want to look smart and not dowdy as my mum will probably say i look if i just put it up in a bun.

    That seems fine, although the comb is a bit on the fancy side for a funeral. But I guess it all depends what kind of funeral it is. Why is a bun dowdy? It probably depends on the rest of your outfit. Buns can be chic too.

    A funeral is a place where you are supposed to look respectful. A bun would be a perfectly appropriate hairstyle, not dowdy.

    I think your idea sounds wonderful!
    Straightened.

    Oh do you really think so? i also have various hair forks, ketylos, flexi 8's. I was thinking of a braided bun as they hold so much better and i don't want to have to keep checking my hairs not coming un done.

    it looks really nice, but I would personally go for a more plain comb or stick
    I agree with BrightEyes7, a bun is a good hairdo for a funeral.
    in my opinion most buns never look dowdy, I think they look classy or graceful.

    Another vote for a bun with an understated stick or fork or just hidden pins. Whatever you feel comfortable with and isn't overly flashy will be very appropriate.

    I also agree that it's more appropriate to wear your hair in a bun, or in any case in a style that won't have you fidget with it all the time...

    Thank you ladies its great to a get different opinions. I'm now wondering if a very low bun would look better similar to a 1930's bun if you get my meaning.
