Engagement shoot hair question

Erin, on June 7, 2018 at 4:28 PM Posted in Hair and Makeup 0 9
Hello! I am getting my engagement photos done in two weeks. I have naturally curly hair. I usually get it straightened and blown out for nice events/weddings etc. I'm thinking I want my hair to look natural in my e-pics but I want it be more than me throwing in the curl cream and calling it a day - which is what I usually do. I don't necessary want an up-do but I don't want a blow out either. Do I just call my usual salon and try to explain what I want? I'm sort of clueless when it comes to beauty stuff so I appreciate your thoughts!

    I think it would help if you had pictures of what you wanted. Based on your description, I'm not quite sure what you want.

    I also have curly hair that I straighten and curl for special occasions so it's not just stick straight. I did this for my engagement photoshoot and it turned out beautiful.

    I'd pin some hair back to do a half up-half down hairdo!

    Something simple but elegant, like this!

    I would search google images for curly hairstyles. You could do a half up style with some twists or something. You could also find a fun hair clip to add a bit of pizzazz to your hair. If you're not confident in your own ability to get style your hair curly call your stylist and ask if they can style your hair in a curly style

    This is a good point! I think maybe I don't know exactly what I want and that is part of the problem. This is my hair naturally. I think maybe the half up half down route would be a good way to go. I think I want to stick to more curly than straight. Thank you!

    I’m the same way. I have naturally curly hair and get a blow out for special occasions. For my e-pics. I styled it just as I do any other day. It worked out really well for me. The pictures were just how I wanted it to be!

    I'd look for pictures of what you want, then bring them to your appointment so you can explain what you are looking for!

    I am just sticking to what I normally do with a little more care. I don't want to look back and think man I went over the top. Just... man, I let myself go!
