I'm 32 - can i get away with wearing a wide alice band type thing for a wedding?
Im growing out a short style so my hair is in a nothing style at the moment (its naturally curly) and is about chin length. I have a wedding this weekend but dont want to have to have my hair done as i really want to grow it long - can i get away with wearing one of these wide alice bands that are in fashion atm? Or am i too old and should know better?????
Wedding is in a hotel which is 300 miles away. I have dd, 3.5 and 3 week old so no chance of really getting to a hairdressers on the morning of the wedding iyswim - i really want to look nice but my hair just lets me down!
Try on the whole ensemble and see - if flowery dress, alice band may push it too far into Cutesy, if twinsetty, too Sloane, but if sophisticated/sexy/elegant etc you may pull it off.
Try a scarf worn as a hairband too - def more grown up. Or a fascinator thing on a comb.
If you do go for the band, just check the little bridesmaids aren't wearing them too...
