However, as the wedding draws ever nearer, and my Pinterest Hair Inspiration board gets ever bigger, I thought it was time to finally try and find a stylist I like and trust. And the first place I looked was, of course, Webster Whiteman. Last Monday, I found myself having a good old chat with Darren Webster about what I want and need for my wedding hair. I've mentioned several times that my hair is a bit mental, it likes to get out and party the second there's a hint of moisture in the air, and it is this tendency, coupled with a February wedding that means I really need an updo that can stay put.
Darren listened to all my concerns, had a darn good play with my hair, and then suggested three or four different styles that might work. Here's a sneaky peek at what we came up with:
We then went for something very different to the previous two, which instead of featuring a plait (or two), actually is a plait, take a look:
It's not quite perfect - Darren and I both agree that it needs a little more height at the top - but I love how complex this looks, and how simple it was to actually do. It is, essentially, a fishtail plait which has been looped around, and caught up in itself. It feels very secure, and I really like how it has something interesting at every angle. And, whilst plaits are rather trendy at the moment, something about treating the plait this way makes it feel more timeless. I like how it shows off the different colours in my hair, too.
