Military Ball....hairstyles?

Ok so I'm going to a ball with my boyfriend on the 19th and he told me he's going to take me out that day to get my hair and nails done. So I'm trying to figure out how I should wear my hair. Since its short and layered I'm having trouble finding anything that would look good.

Here's a couple pics of my hair normally (natural and straightened)


Any ideas would be great! Thanks in advance

Hmmm, I was going to suggest an up-do (because you can't go wrong w/an up-do for the ball), but I don't know that you have the length for that. I would visit a salon and ask for some suggestions - maybe even do a "trial run" of a style or two.
Did want to say, though, have a fabulous time! My husband is retiring from the Marine Corps this month and the balls are one of the things I will miss the most.

Yea my BF is getting out in Sept. So this is probably going to be the only one I get to go to.

If it'll help any, this is my dress

This website has some cool pics and ideas. I'd just google and go to a salon. Maybe invest in some hair extensions for the evening.

I went to a military ball, it was really fun so I hope you have a good time! I just wore my hair down....a lot of the girls did, some down with some curls or something. Anything that looks nice would work. Doesn't have to be too elaborate. I was at the one in DC, if that gives you any idea of how different or similar it would be. OH....and I LOVE your dresss! Mine was brown too :)

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

I don't plan on doing anything too fancy, I figure something a little different then I normally do though.

I like that idea and think it goes well with the dress. It's not too elaborate and I think it'll set off your face nicely.

You could try a nice french twist, it would look great with that dress. =]
