With my future hubby's encouragement, I grew my hair out to just slightly above my waist in plenty of time for our upcoming wedding. I love my hair at this length now and can't imagine cutting it.
As I was growing my hair, my guy loved me to try all sorts of different styles from -- barrel curls for to french braids and even a big ponytail to hang around. Heres the problem. Now that my hair is at my waist and I am trying to find photos for my wedding style my guy is telling me that he doesn't really care what "style" I wear for my wedding, just that I wear it long and loose. UGH. What a terrible dilemna. I want to look great for my guy on our wedding day but I also don't want just straight long hair. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I am sure you are disappointed but keep in mind that your guy seems to love you no matter what way your wear your hair. So why not compromise and wear it partly up so you can add curls or braids or something on top and let the length remain down and add some soft curls.

Good luck to you.

Wear it however you want. It's YOUR hair and it's your big day too. You definitely have some say in the matter. You grew your hair long because HE wanted you to, right? Now that you have the length, you should wear it in a style that you like. It's all about compromise.

I agree. Guys can sometimes be totally unconcerned about hair which you shouldn't take personally. At least I try not to. :-)

I'm a bit confused here. You say you grew your hair for your wedding, yet you don't want to wear it down? Did I get that right?

Anyway, I think Constance gave some good advice there, wearing part of it up and the rest of it down, with soft curls. That could look so good!

Best of luck, whatever you decide, and have a great wedding!

Hey - congrats on your future wedding and that you were able to get it to waist length. I have a suggestion. Why not have it curled in lovely Raphaelite waves/curls, with pieces pulled back and maybe lots of tiny flowers weaved into the parts pulled back and into the flowing hair?

Just an idea.

Hi Jacqui,

I love the idea of the curls and the little flowers. Thank you very much.

To re-iterate the above, men are pigs, except for about 5%. I'm one of them. However, I have quite a lot of faults that aren't hair related that compensate and over-compensate.

Your body, your choice. Even anti-abortionists agree on that one as long as it's out of the abortion context :P


Hair is a beautiful thing that you should be able to do whatever you feel like with the strands, long, short, arranged or loose, it's where all the follicles are near that is important. That brain controls and decides if a person is happy or not. Don't piss off a happy person by dissing their hair. It's the fastest way to affect the current mood of the brain :P (short of whacking a head with a bat or crowbar) --- Surprised your S.O. doesn't realize this yet. He'll be part of that 5% of good guys soon once you explain it to him. Hey, if he wants to do something with hair, that he grows and plays with his own, right ? Propose that to him :P
I hate all of the following and lots more : Fundamentalists, racists, sexists, fascists, ageists (people saying seniors = senile , kids = stupid , 18 = immature or a combo of them), and bigots for causes yet to receive their own designation.

What style is your dress? Your dress style dictates what your hairstyle should be for the wedding. ie...if you have an a-line formal princess gown, that style dictates up, or half and half. While it is your night, you want to make sure you are picturess for your husband to be, so I suggest explaining this to him and compromising. I liked the half up half down idea with soft curls, but again, it depends on the style of the dress.

Just be happy he loves your hair. I'm getting married this spring, and before i was engaged, i chopped my hair in a bob.. Big mistake. Now i dont know what to do with myself. Seriously, i'm trying not to be harsh, but just be happy he'll love it anyway

You should probably read the advice I just gave the "Can I have an updo?" girl :-) . Your situations seem to be similar.
