There was another bride at the salon for my hair trial – she was with her mom and bridesmaids. They were sipping mimosas and enjoying bagels with the stylists, taking turns having their hair done. The bride had a pretty veil and really cute short hair, super shiny and full of volume. There she is in the corner behind me – bride and bride-in-training.
I really liked how my hair turned out for the test run. But it didnâ€™t stay “up” very well, partly because I have a ton of unruly hair, partly because it had been messed with too much, and partly because it needed better pins. Those pins shaped like a U never work for me – do they for anyone? I need the grippy ones you have to pry open, and an entire can of hairspray.
And hereâ€™s the last of the difficult questions. Hairstyle chosen, menu approved, timeline set, song list delivered. But what color will I paint my fingernails?
Dear Future Julia,
Please stop buying neutral nail polishes. You have too many, and you are not very good with minor decisions.
Tomorrow is the big day!
