It’s become increasingly common at weddings for brides to change into a different look for the reception after the ceremony. TikToker and newlywed Lexie Herd (@alexisherd) chose to take this trend a step further — or, more specifically, a few inches shorter. She had her long hair cut into a shoulder-length bob between her wedding ceremony and reception. While the idea of someone getting a haircut during their own wedding raised eyebrows for some, many viewers raised a glass to the bride’s daring decision and new ‘do.
Herd issues a tongue-in-cheek PSA in the on-screen text, where she advises all brides-to-be to shed nine inches of hair during the transition from ceremony to reception.
As Herd’s stylist pulls back her hair into a low ponytail, the bride looks anxiously at her reflection in the mirror.
The clip cuts to a shot of the stylist snipping away at the section of hair separated by barrettes.
Anticipation builds with each snip, and Herd can hardly contain her nervous excitement. After making the final cut, the stylist holds up the nine-inch bundle of hair like a trophy in front of the mirror.
Herd’s jaw drops over the amount of hair removed, and she looks at the camera with jittery delight.
Viewers did not mince words over Herd’s mid-wedding transformation.
“Never would I ever do this… but girl… you slayed,” one user mentioned.
“You will forever have the best, most confusing wedding photos,” one viewer joked.
