Gosh, it's amazing how much these wedding things cost. I did some quick calculations last night, and including my bridesmaid dress, this whole love-celebration will probably cost me just over $300. I'm not complaining, mind you - I want to help & make this experience as special as I can for my lovely Katers, and if dropping a little dough helps then I'm more than willing. Also, I'm sure a lot more people (including the bride and groom!) will be spending a lot more money than that. But that amount is with me being a cheap-ass!! Whoa!
Will I be buying a new pair of shoes or jewelry? Nope. Will I be getting a mani / pedi? Nope, I can do that myself. Makeup? Same right there! Hair? Uhm.... crap.
I'm no hairstylist. I have particular ways that I "style" my hair, but that usually means A) curly, or B) straight. It has only recently gotten long enough to put in a ponytail or pigtails - but neither of those are going to cut it for a wedding that has been themed Vintage Glam!
Here are some ideas I'm looking at for inspiration (thank you, Google image search)!
Do you think there's a tutorial on how to think your hair longer within 1 month? I didn't think so.
This one is a little over the top, but look! It's a heart! How CUTE is that??
I do have bangs, so they'll have to be used in the hairstyle in some way....
Oh, how I love the BUMP! I don't know if I could make my hair do that, but hey, I'm experimenting.
I think this one is just beautiful. Again, I don't think my hair is nearly long enough (nor do I possess the talent to make it do that), but I think it's totally gorgeous!
This weekend I'm going to experiment with some styles - using the photos for reference. Lord only knows how well I'll be able to tease my hair into submission with the supplies that I have (note to self: get about a gallon of hairspray), but I'm going to give it my best practice shot. Keeping in the back of my mind that it'll cost me about $60 at LEAST to get it done by an actual stylist - I'm going to use that as motivation. :)
Wish me luck!
