Wedding Hair

I'm getting married at the end of the month, and I'm going back and forth between doing my own hair or getting it done. I've been growing it out for two years just for the wedding, so I kind of want to have it down. I really really like this.

It seems kind of silly to pay someone $80 to do something so simple. I know how to do the waterfall braid, so that's not a problem. My question is about the curls. How do I achieve curls like this? (Sorry if that's a dumb question, but every time I've curled my hair with an iron, it has looked nothing like that...) And more importantly, how do I make them stay all day and night?

Also, my hair is about the length of her hair when it's straight. Since hers is curled, it's obviously a good bit longer than that straight. Do you think that will be a problem?

Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone, just thought I should let you all know about the changes to madradhair.

I am the new owner and maintainer for the community. For any of you that have the community on your friends list, you probably noticed the slew of spam popping up recently. That has been dealt with by LJ's abuse team and they handed ownership over to me.

The community as a whole will remain the same, but we will hopefully not have to deal with any more spam in the future! I have revamped the old layout and profile, feel free to check it out if you like.

Also, if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, I am all ears! Feel free to comment on this post or send me a message privately.

Lastly, if you have any good links to hair blogs/tumblrs, other active hair communities, hair tutorial sites, or anything else you think should be added to the "Links" section of the profile, please share them with me :)

in need of a serious color change.

hey guys, I'm getting pretty bored of having my black hair back {a decision to abandon all hope on maintaining a red color} and I'm wanting to revamp it. I've only ever bleached my hair twice, and babied it with deep conditioners, leave in sprays, you name it I've put it on my hair to get it back to health. But I need you guys to give me some advice! I'm also looking to get extensions by April, one the color my hair is going and another set to add in some extra color. 

from the last time I bleached it to now timeline:

Store bought color recommendations? :)

 so. I posted a few days ago about going from dark brown to a shade of red. I decided that due to lack of funds I will be doing this at home. Sooo any recommendationsfor box colors that would get a brighter dark auburn color similar-ish to this one? Heres a picture of me too :)

muuuust change hair!

 So. My hair is boring and always the same and I must change it. I've always wanted to go some sort of red. any red. it doesnt matter if it is more subtle or more bright, whatever would look best. I also am considering some sort of side bangs and possibly cutting it shorter. noooot sure yet. But please suggest anything :) pictures would be awesome too! So first is a pic of me with slightly shorter hair and second is a pic of me recently. The only pics I have taken lately are ones of me in cosplay for otakon XD

Hair color help.

Oh my goodness I haven't posted here in years!

I've decided to go to the salon to color my platinum blonde hair back to brown. I just didn't want to risk my hair turning green/orange/pink/etc etc. You get the idea.

However, I'm willing to risk my hair extensions since I have an old set that I didn't throw away yet. So I was wondering, what filler and hair dye would you guys recommend so I can achieve this redder color: I really like the idea of my hair extensions being a tad lighter than my hair since I'm going to try to achieve this girl's darker, more purpley-red color for my actual hair.

Thanks so much guys! I really hope someone will be able to answer my question.



how is the Ion Color brilliance from Sallys? For anyone that has used it, what color would to recommend to get the above (redder) color?
