Ready for some fun and embarrassing pictures? :)
My hair is super duper fine. I think I’ve had an updo twice in my life. The first time was probably the hair trial for my brother’s wedding. The second time was at my brother’s wedding. When they got married back in 2003 my hair was also quite likely the longest it has been in my life. I don’t have a great picture to show how long it was, but this probably gives you an idea of how fine my hair is.When I went in for my trial for my brother’s wedding the stylist asked me to flip through some magazines to find pictures of updos I liked. Every single one that I pointed out to her she said wouldn’t be possible because I just didn’t have enough hair. So instead she put some rollers in and got to work.I don’t remember what the trial was like, but I absolutely HATED my hair at the wedding. It was like a modified French roll, with all kinds of ends sticking up out of the top. It looked like I had a mini birds nest piled on the top of my head. (On the plus side, don’t my brother and sister-in-law look awesome?)I know I look like a complete sour puss here, but this was me trying not to cry! I have ugly cry face in most of the pictures of me during the ceremony. What was up with that?Needless to say when I think about how I would like my hair to look on my wedding day, an updo like that one is not top of the list. When I saw pictures of Lauren Conrad rocking the side pony I thought that might be it!

My hair still has a long way to go in the length department but the biggest concern is if I can have a full enough pony tail to make this look work instead of it looking limp. So today I got out the curling iron, spun some ringlets halfway up my hair and tied in a low side pony. I still have some work to do to make sure the entire pony doesn’t turn into one giant ringlet. I didn’t take any before pictures, but I did take some pictures when I got home. Happily the curl held throughout the day – a miracle! Plus I got complimented on it too! Do you have any hair updo horror stories to share?
