Real or fake curls for wedding?
I recently got engaged (yaaaay!) and am starting to think about how I want my hair for the wedding. I have 2c hair and a routine I am pleased with, and I would love to use my natural waves as they are. I want to just do a small feathered fascinator and little birdcage veil so my hair options are pretty wide open. I am thinking of a partial up do, which I might be able to do myself if I get some practice over the next year. Sadly, I feel like in order for any pros I know to do a good job, I need to give them a blank, straight canvas and let them use their curling irons. Otherwise they always just seem to frizz up my natural hair trying to move it around. Ceremony and reception are indoors, and wedding is in the fall so the humidity shouldn't affect anything.
I'm a tad hung up on the idea that my "every day hair" wouldn't be special enough for The Big Day, even though I really do like my hair as it is, and I get a lot of nice compliments on it.
What have you guys done, and how did it work out? Would love to see pics of natural waves and curls on brides, if you have them!
