I had my hair and makeup trials this weekend and I love my makeup. I really love the hair too, but my concern is that it evokes the wrong era. I am going for 1930's/late 20's. I am not sure if this do looks a little too 50's or if I can pull it off with my dress. All the pics are of the same hair style just different angles and I posted my dress too so ya'll can see what it looks like.

    Your hair is definitely more 50s that 20s. But I am a 50s freak (who has a 50s dress) so I LOVE this.

    Like I couldnt love this more and before I read your post just looking at the picture I thought "holy shit she looks amazing and vintage".

    I take back what I said.

    pictures 3/4 are total 20s. 1/2 look very 50s. Its funny how two different sides can look different

    I love the hair and make up! The only change I could see to make it a bit more 20s would be a darker red for the lip bright red tends to look 50s pinupish the other change you may consider is the victory roll on your left side ...the finger waves on the right are gorgeous and very 20s but victory rolls were a 50s thing primarily. It's up t.o you if you love it enough in the end no one will care and def won't criticize for being out of decade but thought I'd offer my advice for the decade if that's what you want!

    I love the hair but I do agree with the 50s look...maybe adding more blunt or smaller finger waves on the one side would help to pull it back a couple decades?

    Stunning! The finger curls look spot on. The victory roll side does look a little 50's, but I don't think it looks bad at all. I think it's a really cool hairstyle overall.

    WOW!! You look amazing! I do agree with the other ladies that one side is perfect for the era you are trying to hit and the other side is a little 50s, that being said, if you love your hair who cares? It looks amazing, and most likely half your guests wont know the difference, and the other half wont say anything. So do what you want!

    LOVE it! I agree on the split between the eras but I really like it and think it goes well together (I honestly probably wouldn't have even noticed if you hadn't asked).

    Wow! you have a very talented stylist! It looks great but I agree the side with the victory roll is more 50's but I also agree that no one will probably notice on the day of.

    Wow! That is one of the prettiest do's I've ever seen! Love, love, love it! I just think "vintage" when I see it, not a particular decade. But the finger curls make it look very 20's. I say stick with it!

    The hand waves scream roaring 20s, but the victory roll screams 50s. I don't think anyone will notice the day of unless you have some crazy history buffs at your wedding. It's a pretty hair-do!

    I LOVE the make-up and the right side of your hair, but the curl/swoosh toward the top of your head looks a little odd and takes away from the finger curls and beauty of the other side of your hair (which is totally 1920's to me). It also creates a weird bump/split toward the top of your head....Hope I'm explaining this so it makes sense lol.

    I love the waves on the right side, very perfect, but the left side victory roll makes it 50s. perhaps just add more waves or more height and definition to the victory roll
