Bridal Hairstyle

Hello friends,

     So much has been happening lately, I can't believe I have not been posting at all on my blog.  Please forgive me!  But I have a good excuse, I'm getting married!  My love Justin and I are getting married at my home in Micronesia on New Year's Eve, next month.  I've been trying out bridal hairstyles, and have decided on something rather like this.

     Last week I went to get my bridal portrait done!  What a wonderful, amazing experience.  I've dreamed for so long about being a bride, and now it is actually happening.  I love my dress and veil and can't wait to walk down the aisle and be married. 

     To make this hairstyle, I first created a poofy section at the top of my head with bobby pins.  Then I took a small section of hair and braided a 3-strand braid, gently pulling on one edge as I braided to give the braid a lacey look.  I wrapped this braid around like a headband and pinned it in place.  In this version, the bun is a smooth low bun wrapped around with another three strand braid.  In my bridal portrait, the bun is a flower bun made with two 3-strand braids that have had one edge gently pulled like my headband braid.  The pulled-out sections look like petals in the flower bun.  This flower bun is the bun-style I think I will do on my wedding day.  What do you vote?

     I can't promise to post pictures as often as I have in the past, but I will do my best to have something new to share several times a month.  Please feel free to browse through past months and years and see all the hairstyles and braids I have shared along the way.  Your love and friendship is greatly appreciated, thank you to all my dear friends around the world.

Love, Andrea
