So yesterday I had an appointment to get my hair cut. Mr. Milk has a family friend who is a mobile hair stylist and she has been cutting my hair for a couple of years now. She comes to your house with her bag that looks like a carry-on trolley full of sprays, scissors, curling irons, hair dryers and so on, sets up her plastic tarp on your floor, and away she goes! Its actually really convenient.
As I was waiting for her to arrive in the morning, I was thinking about my day and realized that I had a fitting for my dress in the afternoon. It occurred to me that it would be fun to have my hair styled to get a complete picture of my wedding outfit! So when Valentine (the stylist) came in, I asked her if she had time to do an updo. Now granted she won't be the one doing my hair on the actual day - although I do wish I could take her with me to Cyprus - but she was game and had the time and we went for it. She didn't have any of her "bride hairdo" tools so we ran down to the store and picked up some booby pins and she spent an extra hour styling my hair. I stupidly forgot to take my camera with me to the alterations appointment so can't show you ladies the overall look, but I did get Mr. Milk to take some pictures of my hair when I got home.
This was a really quick, unplanned thing so not as neat and tidy as it could be. I'm not sure about the coil parts of the updo. I envisioned a bit of a softer look mostly consisting of loops so that it looks more flower like (if that makes sense). Here are some pics of inspiration:
(Not sure where this one is from)

So what do you ladies think? Like it or not so much? Any other recommendations?
