would this hairstyle look utterly ridiculous on me?
we're going to a wedding in a couple of weeks which is in the back of beyond so I'm going to have to do my hair myself mind you, it's not as if I'm always down the salon having a blow dry! the only style I can pull off apart from a straight blow dry job is a low sock bun. I was thinking of doing it to one side, just under my left ear. I've got a pretty red satin flower thingy I can stick in it too. this is the dress I'm wearing
Thing is I'm 42, slightly saggy and baggy and I'm wondering if I'll look a bit mutton dressed as lamb. Shall I just go for plain straight hair or an up do to make it look a bit more dressy? My hair is just about bra strap length and blonde with a rather grown out fringe.
I like messy but my hair is very fine and it wouldn't last all day unkempt. Fact is, I didn't have time so I washed and straightened my hair last thing the night before. I made a bit of a bouffant with my tangle tamer, put loads of spray in and it lasted all day and night. I had an alice band doodah for the day
