By the time I started looking into hairstyle options for the big day, my dress was ordered, the venues were booked, and I was deep into working on the smaller details. I lined up a hair/makeup artist pretty early in my search thanks to a recommendation from our landlady, who is also a professional hair/makeup artist. The bigger problem was going to be what I would ask her to do with my unruly mess of hair.
My hair without any products or styling can best be described as pre-makeover Anne Hathaway from the first Princess Diaries movie. It’s curly but temperamental, even with gel, and takes a good hour-plus if I want to straighten it and have it not look frizzy in spots. It does hold a curl well, if I can get it straight and then have the time to curl it the way I like it.
