Laurel's Bridal Finale

Laurel Nelson | July 10, 2011 | 8:51 PM

Since my November wedding, I’ve had many requests from stylists to see which of the bridal styles I chose from my bridal hair contest. The answer is … none of them.

Although all the styles were unique, exciting and fun, I didn’t feel any of them were just right for my big day.

So I sat down with stylist and Prink salon owner Rachel Glenn (contestant number 6) and talked about shape and silhouette. The style she did for the competition was one of my favorites (see it here), but it was a little too dramatic for the wedding day.

During my consultation with Rachel we talked about how to tone down the original style to make it more face-flattering and complementary to my dress and veil.

The result was perfect—classic, yet modern. The shape gave me some much-needed height (I am 5’3” and my husband is 6’1”), but didn’t overwhelm my overall look.

Here are a few views of the final style!
