View Full Version : My attempt at a hair-friendly fancy wedding updo! (pics)

November 9th, 2013, 09:47 PM
I went to a wedding tonight and wore my hair in a side-slung bun with some twists going into it. I also put in 6 little pearl and crystal pins that I got for Christmas. I really loved how it came out. Best of all, I didn't use heat or any sprays or product, and it stayed all night. :) What do you think? This is one of my first attempts.

FYI - my hair is only about APL, so I used a donut bun in the "cheat" way, rather than doing a fully-rolled bun. Somehow, I got a fully-rolled to work last night, but couldn't recreate it today. My hair is in-between lengths for this - too short for the fully-rolled, but about too long for the cheat. I will need to practice some new styles! Thanks for looking.

I looked at the photos before I read the text, and I thought for certain that you were the bride. It's a lovely hairstyle. :)

Nice! Wish I could do that, but my hair is so long and thin, it never makes a big bun no matter what i do.

That looks like it's a very intricate bun. You wouldn't guess your hair is "only" APL.

I think it's just beautiful! Wonderful job.

Thank you all so much for your compliments! I feel like I come on here mostly to admire other people's hair for inspiration, occasionally to swap/sell, but very rarely to show something off. I look forward to doing more of that as my hair (and skill set) grows. :D
