Hair Wars: Okura vs. Oscar

When my sister was planning her May 2012 wedding, she had lots of fun, creative, HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THAT kind of ideas. She’s a designer and its just how her brain works. Before her hair and makeup trial, Lauren emailed me some of her ideas for updos and said she was thinking of wearing her hair in a big bun. Awesome. But not just a bun…a bun with colored extensions added to it. COLORED EXTENSIONS!

The contrast of a ladylike bun with bright streaks of color is just so cool. I don’t think I was that articulate when I told her I liked the idea, though. Nope. Here’s actually what I said in my email: “OOOOOHHH I love the hair color in the bun!!!!!!!” Seven exclamation points worth of excitement. Apparently, someone else felt the same way.

Back to my sister’s hair trial, exactly six months prior, 3/11/12: Granted, colored extensions would go along with Lauren’s wedding theme a little more than most. Her wedding was bright, bold and graphic with a CMYK wedding theme. (CMYK stands for the four fundamental colors in design: cyan, magenta, yellow, black). Photo: Angela Renee Photography

Lauren has played around with colored extensions in the past, so it really wasn’t SO out of the realm of possibility for her to have a blue streak of hair on her wedding day. In the end, she went with a more classic look and decided not to use them. It’s for the best–girl was ahead of her time. She’s still the raddest.

  1. Yeah! I ended up not using the extensions because I thought maybe I’d regret it in the future, maybe it’s one of those trendy ideas that will become really untrendy… Like remember in the show “The OC”, that cool chick Alex who dated both Seth and Marissa on the show – photo Well she was one of the first to rock the “poof” hair style, everyone was doing it and loving it and making it their own… but then the wrong person got their hands on it – aka Snooki – and it was over. BUT apparently that’s not what happened with the bunstensions! You don’t get much more sophisticated then Oscar de la Renta! =o)
