Someone tell me what to do with my hair (pic included)
We have dp's mum's wedding on Saturday & I'm struggling to do anything much with my hair.
A friend's dd was going to put it up for me but is now working that day so can't. I can't do curls (I looked like a fraggle yesterday after attempting them), I can't put on a jewelled headband from Primarni without ending up with weird sticky uppy bits .
I just want to do something a bit different but not too complicated! Someone tell me what to do
I'm, rubbish at blow drying, my bobbed hair is shorter than yours. I bung in some cheapy Velcro rollers after a quick squirt of volumising mousse and blast of hairdryer (the rollers stay in better if hair isn't wet through) leave to dry, then run over with straighteners.
Might a blow dry at the hairdressers on Friday evening last?
I mean, it probably won't look quite the same as if you hadn't slept on it, but whenever I've been to the hairdresser, it still looks markedly better the next morning than it would've done if I'd tried a blowdry.
You could even tell them it's specifically for a wedding the next day, and they might product you up to the gills.
Honestly, if you're not going to have much time on the Saturday because of sorting the girls, I'm just wondering when you're going to be fitting in time for doing much to your hair yourself.
Another thought - do you know a mobile hairdresser who'd come round on the sat morning for a quick blowdry at home? Although at this time of year I guess anyone any good is likely to already be booked up doing weddingy things for people.
I was about to second Velcro rollers until I saw you don't have time to buy any.. I don't have the patience to sit and blow dry my hair, but I tend to put rollers in before bed, sleep in them and then straighten it in the morning. No products added but I have a sort of frizzy hair type that holds its shape, rather than shiny hair...
Also, you look very toned upper body and I am very jealous!
