Hi ladies! I am torn about what to do with my hair for my wedding at the end of September. I went for my hair trial and did an updo, and I wasn’t a fan of how it looked from the front, but the side view was pretty. I’m debating going back for another trial to do a half up half down look, but I’m torn because I don’t want to cover up the details of my dress. Thanks for your help!!
I like the updo! I'm not sure of the length of your hair, but I feel like it may take away from the back of your dress if its long. Unless you have the back curled that would look really pretty in a half up/half down style
I think the up do is really pretty, but it's worth trying the half up half down to see how you feel! I'd go for another trial with the half up style and take photos of that with your dress too and see how you feel!
Based on the size of your updo bun, I don't think half up half down would cover much of your dress (unless your hair is super long and fine). You can also ask for more texture in your updo (which will make it look less plain from the front) or do an asymmetrical updo, which will add some interest and volume to your face from different directions, instead of only having depth when looked at from a 90 degree side view.
I did half up half down for our elopement and an asymmetrical updo for our wedding celebration (originally I wanted a low side bun before we ended up having Covid ruin our regular wedding plans). I ended up liking my updo better just because I think it was done better, but both looks were pretty. I don't feel like half up half down hid my dress too much at all.
