Can anyone help me convince a bride that she shouldn't wear an updo because she has her wonderful father's large ears? She's a beautiful young woman, but doesn't seem to realize how much better she looks with her hair down.

There is a great article at:
http://www.hairboutique.com/tips/tip949.htm

It explains that not everyone looks good in updos.

If the bride still insists on an updo...try the following:

1. Use a clear type of tacking tape (like they use to hold breasts in place for low cut gowns in Hollywood) or some adhesive from a makeup artist or makeup store to tack the ears down.

2. Strongly enourage the bride to wear a light veil of "tendrils" around her hairline and face. Make sure the tendrils nestle around the ears to minimize them an cover any ear area that should remain covered.

3. Suggest the bride wear her hair in an updo with the sides smoothly pinned over her ears in a smooth sweep. Or suggest the bride layer a veil or headpiece to cover the ears. Flowers work wonders with an updo when pinned down around the faceline and near the ears to minimize.

4. Use makeup to minimize any areas of the ears that could benefit from shading. This should be a last resort after all else fails.

Hope this helps.

One thought....have the bride do several "dress rehearsals" with different updo styles and suggest she ask her friends to help her pick the best style for her gown and headdress. They can help steer her away from a look that might not be as flattering.

Best wishes,
