I’m nervous about the fact that I told my cousin that I wanted her to do my hair and makeup. She’s was a semi-pro, licensed cosmetologist who is currently working in PR. Anyway, what makes me nervous is the lack of trial. I don’t want to end up looking like a painted whore, or having my hair fall apart and look like a frizzy mop by the end of the day.
That’s how I want my hair to look, long-ish, wavy, pulled back/out of my face, with volume, and with a veil. The problem is that to have hair that full looking, I’ll need extensions and my hair is not going to blend well with any of the more affordable extensions because I’ve got baby-fine, light brown hair with natural reddish highlights and all the fake hair in my color family is more blond than strawberry highlighted. Blech. Maybe I’ll have to buy a piece that’s too light and then have it dyed.
Then there’s makeup. That, I’m less worried about. I won a 1 hour makeup lesson from Groupon with Katelyn Simkins, and I’m comfortable doing my own makeup (just not eyeliner, but I don’t wear eye liner). Maybe fake eye lashes too, but MiMi will be there to help me with that.
I’ve just got general anxiety about paying lots of money for a dress and photography and there being 150+ people coming in from out of town to see us an me just looking OK and not the best I’ve ever looked. Blech. Maybe my gramma was right, nudist colony with pearls, everyone will be so self conscious of how they look that my appearance will be inconsequential (though I wouldn’t spend the money on a photographer for that event, eww).
