Wedding Wednesday: Hair Trial

May 12, 2011
First Hair Trial

Last Thursday, I has my first hair trial done for the wedding.
This was very easy for me at first to decide what I wanted. I found a picture of Eva Longoria's hair, that I loved.
When talking to my stylist, whose been doing my hair for many many years, she stated
"When you find what you want, and we do it. Make sure you don't change it on me come the day of the wedding. You need to make sure that is what you want."
Well... That began my many nights of loss sleep. Deciding on things for this wedding has been very easy for me. I have had no problem whatsoever.  UNTIL, I heard those words.
I knew she was serious, because she knows how I am about my hair. I then started to pick apart pictures, freak out in my head, and confuse the tar outta myself whether or not I wanted it UP or DOWN, UP or DOWN, UP or DOWN!!!
My Bridesmaid, Rachel tagged along and took lots of pictures! I loved having her there.
I was a nervous wreck the entire way there. It was crazy. Pray I am not like this the day of. I sat in the chair and Keturah asked, Okay, so what are we doing? I showed her lots of different pictures... that were somewhat the same but different. I told her I didn't really care how it was up, I just had certain "must haves".
Lots of Volume
It can not look perfectly in its place
No side bun.
Please do not slick my hair back

I'm pretty sure she was scared to death. Usually I know what I want and exactly how I want it. That being said, she was a little relieved that I didn't know EXACTLYwhat I wanted.
So she began.
As much as I'd love to show and share the final look...
I can not. However, I will say that it was perfect. After putting in my hair accessory & putting my veil on...
I was at awe and can say reality really hit me.  Hit me so much that tears were filling my eyelids & my heart was pumping 90 to nothing. It was great.

True Story: That morning before Aaron left for work, he asked if I was excited about getting my trial. Of course my answer was, Very! He then asked if he got to see it. Of course, my response was No way. "So, you go and get your hair done in order to come home and take it out?"
Yes sir!!!
"That's Stupid"
It excited me, that he wanted to see my hair.
Stupid I know, but I thought it was great!
Count Down

Kevin did the same thing with me!!! haha He thought it was the most ridiculous thing that I went and did my hair just to come home with straight hair... My hairstylist actually washed and straightened my hair before I went back home LOL So excited for you ;)

What fun! My hair trial involved me driving into the ge-het-to to buy fake hair, but those ladies were so sweet!

Your blog is adorable!
