Here are some of the hair styles I've been eyeing for the wedding (I try to stick with pictures of blond hair as I'm a dark blond naturally, but highlight my hair):
I'm clearly leaning towards all up, but low - with looser looking hair and some volume on top! I don't think I'd do a hair flower, but definitely some accent pins like this last style! (All pictures from theknot.com).
So in between fighting the urge to cut all my hair off, I bought the Goody Spin Pins the other day (thanks CVS for those extra bucks!). They were $7.79 which isn't a cheap hair accessory, but they supposedly make buns super easy and really hold all day. Well, my hair is fine and I tried the loose bun yesterday morning, so not surprisingly by the time I made it to my office, the pins were almost falling out. I had to re-do my bun a few more times today, so I think I'd have to recommend these only if you have thicker hair (I also found the higher the bun, the longer it held in place, though since I'm not a professional ballerina, there's only so high I can go during the work day!).
Maybe I should have gotten the smaller ones? Anyway, I am so sick of ponytails, I'll try just about anything that doesn't involve more than a handful of accessories (yes, bobby pins - looking at you! Not going to deal with a dozen of you every morning!)
