Hair Style Decision For My Upcoming Military Ball

In two days, I will be attending my very first Military ball! Since I am pregnant, I have had a hard time finding the perfect ball gown that fit my tummy and still looked nice; therefore, I am choosing to wear a nice fitted Maxi gown instead and make the focal point of my outfit on my hair, shoes and accessories. I have just about everything picked out for the outfit now and just need to decide on how I want to get my hair done.

My sister (owner of Shear Glamour Salon) is an awesome hair stylist who does up-dos for weddings, photo shoots and formal events all the time. One of the most recent up-dos she did for a wedding caught my eye because she added crystal rhinestones and pearls into the up-do (Hair Crystals can be found at Harland Corporation Ltd). This is what I am thinking about having done to my hair for the ball but I would love to have your input about it!


What do you think of this hairstyle? Too much for the ball or is it a winner?
