This is the hairstyle I've decided to go with. Just a bit more "done" than my normal day. Jamie took a flat iron to it after washing and drying it. I like how sleek and shiny it looks and most of all, how me it is. We decided that I'll grow out my hair just a bit longer (I'll have on a strapless dress, so their will be a lot of dead space, especially since I don't plan on wearing any jewelry), so another inch will add just a bit to the look. I feel relived to have such a simple decision off my list. Another pro is that after tucking it behind my ears and sleeping on it, 12 hours after it was done, it still looked great. I never got the "tuck marks' that my hair usually gets after slipping it behind my ear. Jamie can tease up the crown a bit, so my veil can slip right in. And as long as it isn't humid that day, I will have no hair worries.
I always kind of assumed I'd have my hair done: curled or up or something fancy. I never imagined that having my hair straightened would be considered having it "done". But I love it, and I think it looks and most importantly it lasts!
Now, if I can just get everybody to stop asking me if I am going to grow my hair out for the wedding (seriously people...I've been engaged for almost a year, wouldn't I have started growing out my hair then!)
