Hair Pics At My Best Friend's Wedding (PIC HEAVY)

Post by Fleur on 27th March 2011, 5:07 pm

Well ladies, I did my own hair for my friend's wedding yesterday. I wasn't supposed to, but my former lazy, hairstylist (who I will never speak to again), showed up an hour and 15 minutes late for my appointment when this appt was planned a month ago and confirmed the day before. This was such a huge day for my friend and this guy was no dismissive and careless about showing up on time to do my hair for a wedding! Many of the stylists attempted to call him, but he wasn't answering. Another offered to do my hair, but I declined because she had never done natural hair before. I was in tears as I left the salon. I saw my stylist pull up and I UNLOADED on that dude--no joke. He responded, "Girl, you know I'ma take care of you. You acting like it's your wedding." Shocked Shocked Shocked No more salons for me ever again. I called my best friend and she was cool as a cucumber on her wedding day. She LAUGHED and told me to do my own hair! Duh--so I did my own hair. I didn't have time to wash it because I was already running behind thanks to my hair crisis. Anyways, I did my ownhair but I wished I did my own makeup. The "artist" jacked up the women of color! We looked clownish, lol. I got several comments on my hair all throughout the day and night from the bridesmaids, groomsmen, guests (especially the Greek women), and my friends. The most important thing is that my former stylist could of ruined things for me, but I knew my hair better than anyone, so why couldn't I be my own stylist? I would've had to walk him through my hair anyway. What the hell was I thinking? Anyway, pics!

ETA: The salon was Myung's in San Antonio

Taken after a fitting the night before. I'll never get rid of my mermaid hips, lol.

My niece made this headpiece for me. It's twisted at the end, but I didn't notice until after the pic.

You (and your hair) look mahvelous! You could have just posted the pics and said "here I am at my friend's wedding".

I love the way your hair is holding up to the heat and that color looks good on you.

Thanks for the compliment, naturallyme09. I was so upset that morning, but things worked out how they were supposed to.

Thank you and you are absolutely right! I changed the title.

Thank you, letha. Very Happy

Thanks tamtam7! My 15 year year old niece made it and I need to get her an Itunes card for that, lol. You know when I first saw the color I was like, "whoa" but slowly over time I came to love the color. It stood out on that beautiful spring afternoon.

Thanks Madeaj, my hair held up well but it would have been better if I was washed. Thank goodness I was able to get my water bottle and gel and refresh throughout the day because that heat was no joke on my hair.

Exactly! Remember when I told you that I only went back to the stylist to help me for the wedding
only? Well he is indeed fired now and I surely don't need him anymore. He rolled up so unprofessional and casual about such a big screw-up.

Thank you swt_sunny. We all had a blast.

Think of a bunch of Greeks, Italians, and Texans partying up a storm. It was definitely an interesting combination, lol.

Well I really haven't gone to a stylist since being natural. All my friends see me in my usual wng hairstyle all the time so I wanted something different for the wedding. That lazy stylist was supposed to create a flapper hairstyle (waves throughout my hair) with the sash across the top. We practiced 3 hairstyles and that style was beautiful! I am style challenged so I couldn't do it myself. That's my next goal--improving my styling skills this year.
