How did you do your hair for e-pics

In two weeks we are doing our e-pics (Uhh, yeah..I lost 5 pounds and I'm pretty sure I gained it back already). I feel sorry for our photographer who has to try to make me look good in the pictures, since I photograph horribly. Like, seriously, nobody takes a worse picture than me. I'm worried about how I'm going to look. I don't know what to wear, I don't know how to do my hair. I don't know how to do my make up.

I'm thinking overall, I don't want to be overdressed. I want to kind of look natural, but at the same time, I don't want my hair to look like it does all the time (a crazy frizz mess). What did yous wear and how did you do your hair?? We are getting pictures taken in nature as well as in town.

    My epics were vintage themed, so that's how I did my hair and makeup. More in my profile!

    I went to my hair stylist the day before for curls and a blow-dry (I'm glad I did!) my hair looked good even if it looked like I had no make up on in pics (since I did it myself). We took pics in a nature center trail so no elaborate change of outfits for me. I just had a striped short dress and changed the look by having two jackets, brown boots and blue peephole heels.

    I have a curling iron called a "u-curl" it doesnt have a clamp and you just wrap pieces around the barrel. its the only curling iron i have ever found that holds curl in my hair. thats what i did for my e pics. you can buy at walmart or target Smiley smile

    I did my own both times (had two sessions). One I kept simple since the beach gets windy, and the other I curled Smiley smile

    I'm thinking just something natural for mine. Probably just curling it or straightening it.

    I have e-pics on Saturday (yay!) and have no idea how I am doing my hair. I am going to get my hair cut and colored earlier in the day, so I will just get it styled there.

    Amber- I LOVE your pictures, especially the first. You are drop dead naturally gorgeous.

    I just curled it myself and pinned it up on one side (because it was SUPER windy that day and kept getting in my face.)

    I had my friend's friend do my hair and makeup. She did a good job - it looked great before the pics... but it didn't translate as well into the professional pics. I had her curl my hair with a flat iron (something I haven't been able to master myself) and she just did a little more dramatic makeup than I'd wear on a normal day. I was pleased Smiley smile

    I'm probably gonna have my hair curled and such, bc I'm not really feminine, and fh hasn't seen me done up lol. So I'm hoping to surprise him ;-).

    I wanted to look like myself as much as possible AND it was FREEZING so I didn't want to be uncomfortable.

    I wore skinny jeans, an oversized sweater, and boots. I wore my hair down - but got it blown out to hold up against the wind and also got my make up done (I used to work at a salon/spa so I'm good friends with a lot of stylists and make up artists).

    Did mine myself. Just a quick curl and out the door. Unfortunately...it was unseasonably warm that day and pictures at the lake gave me lion-hair.

    I have frizzy hair too!! Ack!

    We've not done our photos yet so I don't know what I'll wear, but in Indianapolis there is/was a Groupon, $45 for three visits to the Blowdry Lounge, so I plan to use one of my visits to have my hair washed and styled before the shoot! Basically you pick one of five styles:

    Was thinking of doing the first one for the e-photos...

    I did my own hair and makeup. Curled my hair with a 1 inch iron.

    You can kind of see it in my avatar.
