Jessica Alba Updo

I searched for a hairdo that would compliment my 2008 Pronovias “Cordoba” dress by Manuel Mota.  If I were to pick my fav female celebrity style, it would be Jessica Alba.  She can pull off a lot of different styles with chic elegance.  I love that she is adventurous with her hair and clothes.  So, I found this picture of an updo she had that I just looove.  I sent it to Molly (from Cheek Couture), my hair and makeup artist to do a TRIAL session.  This is how it came out.

Do you think it meets the mark?!!   Of course, if I had highlights, then you could see the definition of the curls more; but who has time for that! (I wish I did)  For my wedding, Molly tweeked the front a little bit, and I love my day-of hair even more!!!!  AND my DIY birdcage hairpiece for the final touch!
