Wedding Hair


My friend JayKay got married today. Beautiful bride, dashing groom, emotional ceremony (traditional Jewish ceremony - a first for me) and a wonderful reception. But, no pictures to share, as Simply Silly Mel left her camera at home! Hopefully Parks, who was my 'date' for the day will let me have some of the photos she took and I will be able to share them at a later date.
Many congratulations to JayKay and her lovely Beau!


I did remember to take a photo of my updo when I got home though. I had actually set my hair on SoftSpikes the night before, with the intention of having curly hair. However my hair was still wet in the morning and as a result the curls were, well, not curls and I had to come with a plan b. In the end it was very simple to create; a few flat twists at the front, secured with small rubber bands and the rest of my hair gathered up with a hairtie. I am not a fan of the little rubber bands; I find them fiddly to remove and am pretty sure that I take some of my hair out with them - any suggestions for alternatives would be greatly received.
If you have the patience and time (both of which I didn't have enough of on the day) you could flat twist all of your hair; I'm sure this would create a stunning effect.

I like the impromtu do. You can carefully cut the little rubberbands out, "stretch and snip."

Thanks for that tip QS, I didn't realise how visible they were until I saw the pictures!

Mel, I haven't been blog-checking in a VERY long time (mine included) and as I'm trying to get caught up on my fav blogs, I had to let you know that your blogs are gorgeous!! It's so good to see them (and you!) after such a long time. I make no promises, but between you and Carmen/Mimi, I am motivated to update my blog very soon (I'm not working right now, so you'd think that would free up some time -- we'll see). Take care!
