I'm 36 and average looking and want to look and feel fab for this do. I'll be getting it cut and blow dried (a treat as i have boring straightish brownish hair which just gets a quick trim and no styling ever) or getting a proper hairdresser to put it up....what would be nicest?
How long is your hair? I personally think that most people look best with some hair around their face. Hair that's completely up highlights all your face's flaws whereas a bit of loose hair softens them.
Also, sometimes up styles can look a bit dated and when you've got a show stopper dress and lots of accessories a simple blowdry can look more modern.
ok, so Up seems to be taking the lead. Day to day it's usually pulled back but not piled up, and nowhere near voluptuous tresses piled up on the top of my head. I'm trying to think how i'd like it up, as I'd agree with PP i need some tendrils or the like loose to soften my round face! Been googling up-dos but nothing is quite right...Anyway, thanks for the input!
not really, just a layer/feathery bit at the bottom if you know what i mean. But I'm having my hair cut and may well get some more layers. I've got bad hair right now as i have post baby regrowth which is about 3 inches long sticking up from the top of my head; i lost so much hair after DC3 and it's all growing back thank goodness, but it makes my hair look very frizzy.
