So everybody has been asking me questions about my upcoming nuptials – when is it? What am I wearing? What’s your colour? Who are your bridesmaids? What’s you hairstyle going to be? Not that I mind being asked a million questions about my upcoming complete and utter freak-out – it’s just that although I’ve sorted out a lot of things, I’m still super perplexed about a few small details – so, to be honest, my brain has gone a little bit soggy from all of the wedding-concentration. I’ve found myself staring into the middle distance with my hand half-way to a reagent in the store-room, wondering if the lovely shade of pink that the Magnesium cartridge is clad in would work as a contrasting colour to my wedding’s peach theme.
In any case, I haven’t put much thought to my wedding hair. In fact, the only instructions that my brain seems to be conjuring up are: LOW and BUN. Which are are pretty good start. Other than that, I’m a blank. In fact, I have been thinking more about what I’m going to do with my hair AFTER my wedding. This is mostly because I absolutely abhor my currently longer-than-I-have-ever-had-it hair. I want it lopped. I want it chopped. I want it dyed a ridiculous colour and perhaps piled upon my skull like a bowl of spaghetti Bolognese.
Well, okay, maybe not THAT dramatic.
What I’m thinking is something along the lines of “Rinka Hair’ – which is apparently a cute known as “pear-shaped hair” … well, because your head ends up looking like a pear once you’ve tamed it into submission and also because Rinka’s name: 梨花, the first character of which is the kanji word for nashi, なし, or Japanese/asian pear. And yes, I’ve realised that this trend is a few years old, but I don’t care, tis’ pretty!
Of course, she’s changed her colour (and the length of her hair is a little longer) since then but I’m looking to go essentially the same shape. Colour-wise, I’m something a little less obvious than a ginger shade – I’m loving the current balayage trend a bit too much. I find myself staring at people’s heads in envy. I’m looking to adopt something that looks a little like this:
I really should be getting my mind off post-wedding hair and into actual wedding hair. Well, maybe I’ll leave that to my next post.
