To save a little sanity the day of the wedding, I want to try to get a reasonable idea of what to do with my hair.
I have been doing my own up-dos for my work Christmas parties for 3 years… but they were basically “on the fly” involving clear elastics and bobby-pins… so I couldn’t replicate them even if I tried. Oh dear.

Island Wedding (aka Humidity!)
Bridesmaid Appropriate (not too plain, not to showy)
DIY-able (I don’t want it to the Cake Wrecks of Hairstyles!)
Here is my 1st Hair experiment. (Original tutorial at hairromance.com)
You basically make a rope braid, secure with a clear elastic, and pin into a bun!
I think it would be cute with a jeweled hair comb to the side of the bun.
I also only spent about 5 minutes before running out the door to work. So for an event I’d get a more defined braid going, and do a little more to the sides/front frame of my face. But this is cute enough for work and a little more professional looking than a basic pony tail.
I still have a little under a month to figure out something! In the mean time, I’ll have some interesting hairstyles for work!
