I'm wearing this soon and I have shoulder length hair.
I think it probably need to be pulled back into a pony tail to show off the top/my shoulders. Pony tails for me are for when my hair looks crap so I don't associate it with elegance and looking good My skills are limited to pulling it back and shoving in a band.
What can I do? What can I dress it up with? I looked at hair accessories but I can't imagine wearing one of those feathery things.
get a either a big slide or one of those curved bun holders with a pin through (not a claw clip) and practise using it to put all hair up in a chignon
my hair is past my shoulders - I make a ponytail, twist and twist and twist until it starts to twist into itself, then twist it to lie against my head in a figure of eight. Clip goes acros the cross of the 8.
We had a ceilidh for our wedding reception and let me tell you, loose curls are the way to go as by the end we were all sweaty (sorry, glistening) bunch with hair everywhere anyway, but god it was such a good laugh!
