Warning: This is a Miss Sword photo heavy post! If gets too overwhelming staring at my face for the next few minutes I suggest taking a break after the extensions go in.
I’m so happy because Laura nailed my bridal look! I gave her my smokey eye inspiration photos and after decided to do a softer colored lip than you’ll see in the photos, I was in love with everything. I decided to go with airbrush makeup, as are most of my girls, because it will last us all day and all night!
Smokey eyes plus false eyelashes”¦yummy. Too bad it took me awhile to get used to wearing them!
As for hair, well, if you’re on the fence about getting extensions, I can’t recommend them enough! As someone with limp, stringy, and lifeless hair, the one day I want volume more than any other is my wedding day and boy, did some extra blonde pieces of hair accomplish that! I know it’s superficial, pricey, and completely unnecessary, but I felt so beautiful.
These are my babies:
This is me brushing them later that night while Mom Sword stands on laughing and taking photos of me. In my defense, Laura told me to brush out the hairspray after I take them out! :)
This is Laura clipping the extensions into my hair—so cool how easy it is!
This is her styling them.
And this is the final look:
And this is MOH Big Eyes wearing just one extension in her dark locks. We’re a silly bunch.
Finally, this is me with my normal hair after a mere four hours of wearing the extensions.
Yes, I had to take them out, I’m a wuss.
In all seriousness, I consider myself to have a pretty tough scalp from years of Mom Sword ripping through my tangles, but my head was definitely hurting after a few hours of having my new hair pinned in and I’m wondering if this is normal or not. I’m thinking of taking some ibuprofen on the day of the wedding to take the edge off, plus I’m sure being in a state of wedded bliss will help take my mind off of things. :)

Did your hair and makeup trial turn out to be everything you thought it would be? Who else is wearing extensions and does it make your head hurt or am I just a big baby?
